I wonder how they compare to the average IQ of a tea party member. :rofl:

Social conservatism has been linked to lower average IQ. I see this statement as no more offensive than saying measured differences in average IQ between races has been observed.

One implies biological causation, leads to ethnic stereotyping, presumptions of capabilities and thus legitimizes discrimination...

I think it's partially cultural and partially socioeconomic.

Ethnic stereotyping exists with or without studying race and IQ. A large portion of the comedy world would not exist if not for ethnic stereotyping. Big money is made on ethnic stereotyping and most people enjoy it even if they believe in equality, diversity and hold only socially liberal views.

oh, now we're justifying stereotyping?

i suppose that's one way to prove your point in post #32. By, you know, completely destroying your point in post #32.
