Would it be justifiable for society to discriminate based on IQ? Wouldn't there be some whites dumber than some blacks?

How would they handle the discrimination not based on race but their intelligence? The dumb white ones denied certain priviliges and access?

Discrimination is an ugly thing. I.Q is relative. Let's consider the drive of a human being. Given the right circumstances, the average human can outwit the most educated in terms of success. There are people that have come up from the sewers and have elevated others to a high lifestyle.

This is a trite and tired statement OP. You know it and most of us that grew up with humble beginnings know it. There are achievers across the board that overcame economic and social status positions. I'm proud to say I'm in my mid forties and retired. Failed miserably at school and adapting to social norms. Yet I nailed it to the hilt in business.

Laughing all the way to bank. ;-)

What you are talking about here is meritocracy. It would be much better for discrimination to be based on ability to perform tasks. To some extent we have had this situation in the past, but socialist like to deny reality and pretend that all people are equal. Socialist societies give jobs to anyone regardless of ability. We do still discriminate in favor of the more intelligent and more able in some senses, but not enough. Our society still discriminates in favor of people who have had passed medical degrees, when issuing licenses to perform medical procedures. Fortunately we discriminate in favor of those who have had flight training when issuing flying licenses. And it is a good thing that we are still allowed to discriminate in favor of highly intelligent people when hiring computer programmers. There was a time, not long ago when society agreed that it was good for people to be of discriminating taste, but we have been brainwashed to accept mediocrity to the extent that many people now hide their intelligence, proclivities and ability to discriminate. This will eventually lead to the destruction of our whole way of life.

I don't know about homosexuality, but I am pretty sure I would abort if I knew my kid was going to have an IQ under 80, or have downs syndrome or something like that.

There are some whites that are dumber than blacks, for the same reason: Poverty.

The problem is high IQ doesn't mean you're wise. Lots of high IQ people are extremely dumb (Yes, i think unwise and dumb is the same thing).

That is very true, which is why discrimination should only ever be on the basis of ability. A surprising number of people who are born with native intelligence, learn to coast on it and never develop it.
