Worst Pickup Line Ever
December 18, 2006
I ran across this essay that discusses the relationship between IQ and success in society. It summarizes the state of research in psychometrics up to 1995. Here are some correlations that appear to be strong. Remember that correlation does not equal causation. Remember this does not mean all people in a group are like this, but a statistically significant percentage are.
- Low IQ is correlated with poor academic performance, poverty, and criminality.
- Low IQ is correlated with low IQ parents and low socio-economic status.
- IQ appears to be immutable. Better education does not improve IQ substantially.
- On IQ tests, Asians score higher than average, while blacks and Latinos score lower than average. Whites are average.
If these statistics are true, then blacks and Latinos could become a permanent underclass in a globalized world that devalues manual labor and enriches a high IQ elite. Since most people mate with someone within their same socio-economic class, the low and high IQ groups will become more firmly entrenched. This disparity can lead to social instability and is undesirable in a country that aspires to give every child a fair shot at a comfortable middle class life.
I propose that black & Hispanic women mate with high IQ Asian men. This solves many problems at once. Black & Hispanic women have a hard time meeting eligible men who can, or are willing to, support a family. On the other hand, high IQ Asian men have a hard time meeting women and are perpetually single. Get these two groups together and they can produce children that will be closer to the white IQ average. Problem solved.
Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to explain all this to low IQ, yet smoking hot, black & Hispanic women. I haven’t been able to condense this into a quick pickup line yet. The line, “how would you like to make some smart babies tonight”, has gotten me slapped several times. Anyone got a better idea?
