Jews 120 Asians 110 Caucasions 100 Arabs 98 Blacks 80 [/quote] http://mn.gov/mnddc/parallels2/pdf/90s/99/99-MRI-MLW.pdf -snip- [i]In 1959 the AAMR, at that time called the American Association on Mental Deficiency, published a definition of mental retardation that read as follows: Mental retardation refers to subaverage general intellectual functioning which originates during the developmental period and is associated with impairment in adaptive behavior. (Heber, 1959) The definition was revised in 1961. That revision specified the meaning of the term subaverage general intellectual functioning in a manner that was to have considerable impact on the field of mental retardation. One standard deviation below the mean on an intelligence test was delineated as the point at which intellectual functioning should be considered subnormal (Hebcr, 1961). This specification meant that on an IQ test with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15, any score below 85 would be diagnostic of mental retardation. If the total population was tested and classified on this basis, almost 16% would be diagnosed as having mental retardation. Even higher percentages would be expected to be found in subpopulations where minority status, language factors, or socioeconomic background depresses intelligence test scores. There were criticisms of the concept of adaptive behavior as it appeared in the 1961 definition. The argument was made that adaptive behavior as it was presented in the definition was not actually functional for the diagnosis of mental retardation. In reality, it was argued, the determination of retardation continued to be based on intelligence tests and the idea that intelligence was not significantly "associated" with adaptive behavior in this process (Clausen, 1972). In 1973 an AAMR committee again revised the definition. The committee constructed this revision with criticism of the 1961 definition in mind. It specified that significantly subaverage general intellectual functioning was to be determined by a score of at least two standard deviations below the mean on an intelligence test (Grossman, 1973). This meant that the cutoff point for mental retardation was essentially moved downward from 85 to 70. This change lowered the percentage of the population that might be identified as having mental retardation from 16% to approximately 2.25%.[/i] [/quote]
The facts are this average score for the blacks is a clear indication of who will need government help. Not all but this is an average... Is it possible that a majority of the black kids just dont give a crap ?
The black community should be outraged, at least the ones that try in life
