because I think your motivation (to say it) would be to deny race realism and a hereditary link to
IQ, because that would be in line with your pro-black, anti-white (self-loathing) politics.

Well, the papers that I can find suggest that the hereditary part of intelligence is 75-80%. Another
part is certainly due to nutrition. I just read a piece that showed the IQ of Indian-Americans
rising due to their increased meat intake.
I have always argued for genetics as a strong predictor of behaviour, including intelligence. My
teacher in Moral Philosophy in the 70's thought I was a Nazi.
