Ain't No Black Geniuses
16,513 of the creme de la creme of American black women, after a multi-TRILLION dollar investment in educating blacks, took the Graduate Record Exam and proved once and for all that:
Did ANY of One Billion Blacks Score Where Obama Claims He Scored?If you've ever asked yourself this question, then you deserve an answer to your question. And to be specific, only 0.0000003 of any population group scores more than five standard deviations higher than their mean, in any test, or endeavor, or income, or whatever other way you choose to measure that group.
Of the almost 400 million Black women in the world, it would be expected that 120 of them would score five standard deviations higher than their mean GRE score of 388, or 608. This is the theoretical upper limit of their scores based only on the assumption that scores this low would follow a normal bell curve, an extremely optimistic assumption. Needless to say, none of them would be expected to score six standard deviations higher, or 652.
Conversely, a score of 611 for Asian men who take the GRE WHO ARE US CITIZENS ONLY, is only two standard deviations higher than their mean of 490, which means that 2.27% of them score higher than 611.
These international tests are now proof positive that Asian men educated in their own countries score MUCH, MUCH higher than Asian men who are American citizens who are educated HERE. Ignoring that for a moment, of the one billion people in the world who are Asian men, we would expect more than 22.7 MILLION of them to score higher than 611 IF say Japanese or Korean or Chinese men educated THERE score no higher than those educated HERE.
These are only the verbal scores. The race and sex differences are much bigger in math.
BASE GRE Score is 450
I know, I know--a standardized verbal and quantitative test is not an iq test. I know that you get 200 points just for signing your name, so the test is already skewed right off the bat. I know that there are many noise level questions which even kindergartners can answer, which adds another 100 points. I know that many of the questions are multiple choice which means that a person who knows utterly nothing about the subject could get as many as 150 points just by guessing. So I DO recognize that a score of 450 is what a person who knows how to take tests, but knows NOTHING about the subject of the test, might "achieve".
But black women scored lower than this on GRE Verbal, at 388. And black women scored lower than this on GRE Analytical, at 421. And black women scored MUCH lower than this on GRE quantitative, at 404.
AH, but, you say, there are SOME black geniuses. After all, George Washington Carver only a century ago got four patents for peanut butter, and look at Condoleza Rice and Colin Powell and Obama. They're geniuses.
Maybe so. Maybe they didn't take GRE. Maybe black geniuses are so smart they manage to get into graduate school without even bothering with the Graduate Record Exam [or affirmative action mandated they not be required to take it] just like affirmative action permitted them to be admitted to undergraduate schools as MILLIONS of much more qualified White and Asian students were DENIED admission.
The creme de la creme of of blackhood, 16,513 black women, did so well in undergraduate school that they were permitted to take the GRE.
But NOT A ONE of them scored 800 on EITHER of these three parts of the GRE!
Does this make them geniuses? Not exactly. NONE of them scored higher than 570 in GRE Verbal, NONE of them scored higher than 620 in GRE Quantitative, and NONE of them scored higher than 640 on GRE Analytical.
With NONE of them scoring 800 on ANY of these three portions of the test, NONE of these 16,513 black women could possibly be considered to be geniuses, could they?
So the crowning achievement of our multi-trillion dollar experiment to educate blacks, of the creme de la creme of 16,513 black women, NONE scored over 620 on GRE Quantitative while half of the Asian men scored higher than 671, NONE scored over 570 on GRE Verbal, and 84% of them scored LOWER than the AVERAGE Mexican male in GRE Analytical (who scored 514).
Is it still possible that there black geniuses hidden in this number, enough blacks to fill up the average US town? Is there a pony in all this bs?
Who Scored 800 on GRE Quantitative?
Would it be fair to say that a "genius" might be one of the above 1,283 students who scored 800 on the quantitative portion of the test? Sure.
Either way you define it, how many of the above geniuses were blacks? NONE.
Let's not kid ourselves. According to the world's BEST standards of measurement, even with all the fudging and fiddling and dumbing down of our students and mind-numbing expenditures, even after REJECTING MILLIONS of the most qualified White and Asian students from our once-fine universities, ALL of these tests have proven time and time again, for decades now, that NO American black woman came even CLOSE to being classified as even LITERATE, much less as a "genius".
If there's even one black woman who scored higher than all the rest of the blacks who took GRE in all three sections, the real creme de la creme of American blackhood, her quantitative skills are lower than the AVERAGE Asian man, her verbal skills are lower than the AVERAGE White man, and her analytical skills are only slightly higher than your Mexican gardener, hardly a candidate for a Ph.D, an M.D.--nor even gardnerhood.
Gaussian Distribution? Probably Not
This makes the optimistic presumption that black scores follow a regular Gaussian Distribution. It accepts carte blanche, without question, the relatively large standard deviation for blacks reported by the College Board. It ignores that some state laws require a person to be counted as black if 1/64th of their genealogy is black. It doesn't compensate for the number of blacks admitted through the now illegal affirmative action programs which permitted Whites to be admitted because they posed as blacks. It doesn't consider the academic theory that the reason American blacks have higher IQs than African blacks is their higher proportion of Caucasoid genes, perhaps as much as 25%. If this theory is correct, then the 26 who scored higher than 520 in GRE Verbal, the 26 who scored higher than 560 in GRE Quantitative, and the 27 who scored higher than 585 on GRE Analytical, would not be black at all (at least according to their own brethren) because they would be mostly Caucasian.
One standard deviation = 68.3%, or 15.85% above 1 sd
Two standard deviations = 95.4%, or 2.3% above 2 sd
Three Standard deviations = 99.7%, or 0.15% above 3 sd
Four standard deviations = 99.99366%, or 0.00317% above 4 sd
five standard deviations = 99.99994%, or 0.00004% above 5 sd
GRE scores of black women
Verbal = 388 s/d of 88, 2,617 scored above 478, 380 scored above 566, 25 scored above 654, 1/2 (read: NONE) scored above 742, 0.007 [read: NONE] scored 800
Quantitative = 404 s/d of 104, 2,617 scored above 508, 380 scored above 612, 25 scored above 716, NONE scored 800
Analytical = 421 sd of 109, 2,617 scored above 530, 380 scored above 639, 25 scored above 746, NONE scored 800
