"According to the #Sacramento Bee, C.K. #McClatchyHighSchool’s fourth annual science fair featured a project entitled “#Race and #IQ.” The student who designed the project, described as a boy of Asian descent, is a participant in the accelerated #Humanities and International Studies Program, or HISP, which was created to promote cultural awareness and sensitivity.

The project featured excerpts from five texts, including #TheEssentialKafir, a book published in 1904 that supported apartheid by arguing that #blackSouthAfricans were intellectually inferior to whites. The related term “Kaffir” has long been derided as the South African equivalent of the n-word.

The student asked a handful of his fellow students to take an online #intelligence quiz and used his results to justify why there were so few blacks and Hispanics in the HISP program. The school district says that the program currently has 508 students enrolled, including 12 #African Americans, 80 #Hispanics and 104 #Asian Americans.

To understand this phenomenon, one must understand that the “intelligence quotient” does not measure smarts. It measures a certain kind of intelligence. Ironically, the creator of the scale that is most used to measure intelligence, Alfred Binet, believed that these tests were an inadequate way to measure intelligence because they don’t factor in emotional intelligence or creativity.

Scientists know that the results of these tests are skewed in favor of certain socioeconomic groups and have nothing to do with genetics. For instance, studies show that kids adopted by rich parents score 15 points higher on IQ tests, and family income is one of the more accurate predictors of SAT scores, a test that was created to exclude certain minorities.That student eventually graduated and went on to become a prominent figure who helped craft the current presidential administration’s travel ban and immigration policy and is credited with creating #DonaldTrump’s “America first” slogan. His name is Stephen Miller. #melanin #panafrican #foodforthought #blackisbeautiful #blackwomenrock #blackboyjoy #blackexcellence #culture #blackmagic #rbg #blackmenrock #repost @merciful.melanin
