I don’t believe one race is smarter than another. Some cultures value intellect and scholars and provide a nurturing environment and some cultures don’t. Asian parents generally spend much more time with their kids on schoolwork and education-related issues than other cultures, but it’s not truly a grey matter issue. It’s a pragmatic approach, proven to be successful over the long run.

IQ doesn't mean high intelligence. It means that there is a greater possibility from one who scores higher than from one who scores lower. Race has only a slight influence with intelligent. There are other things that influence IQ's such as where one comes from, how they were raised, etc.

WHAT??? It doesn't depend on race, it depends on its culture, because parents over there are way more strict when it comes to education and most of them suck.

It has to do with education practices. In the west, education focuses on preparing students for life, whatever that may be for the student. For example, while all students are educated in Math and Science for a while, in later years, these become optional, and more "workforce oriented" courses are taken. I think in the east, more emphasis is placed on academic achievement. The system sets their goals higher, thus I think the standard is raised.

I think it has nothing to do with genetic differences.

In addition, political borders of countries have nothing to do with "race". We like to think of "races" as "nationalities", but those are two different things. Genetics don't have anything to do with what country you are born in. If this survey was based on actual ancestry and genetic makeup instead of citizenship, it might be more accurate.

Also, I think IQ is not a very good measure of "intelligence".

Also, I think this topic is inflammatory.

Does really matter who's smart or stupid. Who cares about it. Even I don't give a shit about it.

Like many have said, ethnicity plays a very small part overall while education, culture, and self motivation play the most important role in how much you are actually capable of learning.

exactly !
i would prefer being tolerant and open minded over super smart.
why always striving for superiority ,ego issues?
how about just trying to be a decent human being?
