Perceived intelligence of blacks and whites among members of various groups

Expounding on the average perceived differences in intelligence between blacks and whites, the following graph shows the mean score on a 7-point scale asking respondents separately if blacks and if whites "tend to be unintelligent or tend to be intelligent"--the higher the score the more intelligent members of each race are perceived to be--by selected characteristics of the respondents making the assessments:


With Jews, assessments of blacks are in line with how most other groups (except blacks) perceive blacks. The narrow black-white gap stems from Jews rating whites as being less intelligent than any other group does.

The story is reversed for Asians, whose view of whites is in line with how other groups perceive whites. They assess black intelligence at a markedly lower level than others do, however. Consequently, they perceive the overall black-white gap to be wider than any other considered group does.

GSS variables: INTLWHTS, INTLBLKS, YEAR(2000-2014), RELIG(3), RACECEN1(1,2,4-10,15-16), SEX, AGE(18-34,35-54,55-89), EDUC(1-15,16-20), POLVIEWS(1-2,5-6)

There's been another round of anti-Russian missives from cucks, Dems, and the globo elites/media. One neat thing about google news is that publishing time is tracked. And the latest anti-Russia blitz commenced around midnight. Are people really that naive about what's going on? The globalist task masters care obviously coordinating anti-Trump propaganda campaigns. Remember that Haberman chick bragging about being a Clinton whore in a Wikileaks dump? The insane thing is that most of the people totally compromised by Wikileaks haven't even been disciplined, let alone fired or best of all, blacklisted from high paying MSM positions.

Sure enough, after Trump delivers a speech carefully crafted to appeal to everyone who isn't a criminal, terrorist, or communist, the response of the Octopus is to draw attention away from Trump's persuasiveness and the Dems embarrassingly ineffectual response to it.

I have to say, the most interesting thing about this graph and the one you posted earlier on the same subject is that college seems to teach people whites are stupid.

Fortunately the anti-Russian hysteria, to the extent that middle Americans share it, has already been priced in. I suspect Trump's approval numbers will go up after this week.

This election was not just a victory for Trump but a refutation of bog standard beltway politics. The public does not care about Russophobia, they just want more jobs, lower taxes, repealing Obamacare, etc. Trump has done a good job so far of cutting through the BS and he should continue to to do so. The media is always going to complain about anything he does but we're in an era where media disapproval is at an all time high with people of all political affiliations. The moment Trump listens to the media more than the public is when he is in real trouble.

How would the picture look if you control for both IQ proxy (wordsum) and education?

Here in the ghetto, the Asian view of IQ and race is hilariously obvious at times. South Asians are the newest and therefore the most sensitive to the culture police, but they struggle to hide their disdain for blacks. East Asians are more financially secure and don't seem to care as much about being called racist. My dry cleaner is East Asian and she often sounds like a Klan member.

My hunch is these groups see how easy it is to live a decent life in American and naturally assume the plight of blacks is nature over nurture. They also interface with blacks more than most whites do so they are more realistic about these things. Asians are also smart and less prone to self-delusion.

The interesting thing I notice with Jews is that they seem to delight in taking abuse from their black employees. There's a deli near me that tries to be a traditional Jewish deli. The owner hires all blacks and many of them treat him like dirt. The cooks are Spanish and male, but the rest of the staff is black it is not uncommon to hear them muttering about "the Jew."

Random Dude,

It would be suicidal to listen to the major media. Having dealt with it for four decades, Trump knows that. His address to Congress was good but his approval numbers aren't moving much. They haven't moved much since his inauguration, and they may stay static for years. No one who supports Trump trusts the media, and no one in the media supports Trump. Consequently neither side is going to move the other much.

Alliumnsk,

There's little difference among the perception of black intelligence across the wordsum spectrum. Lower wordsum scores tend towards higher perceptions of white intelligence, however. IOW, it roughly resembles what you see with the no-college/college distinction.

Z,

Ethnomasochism--at least of the virtual-signalling variety--is a Jewish thing. It's emphatically not an East Asian thing.

Thanks to the vast inaccuracy of the polls during the election, I have a hard time believing these approval ratings.

Having said that, I wouldn't be surprised if Trump is stuck permanently between 40 and 50 percent for his time in office. Half of the other side is crystallizing their contempt for him and you have the usual cucks and NeoCohens who are mad that the President isn't their guy. I will only get concerned if he starts backtracking on all of his populist proposals to be more media/neocon friendly.

Obama was in a similar approval range and the media pretended he was beloved by all. So if we apply their logic to Donald Trump, then everything is fine!

Random Dude,

There is a fairly wide variation between the approval rating polls. Quinnipiac is ~10 points lower than Reuters, for example (or has been anyway, I don't follow them that closely).

Approval ratings among whites are higher than they were for Obama.

You were... arch-surprised of who rates the intellect of whites the lowest, weren't you, AE?
