My question is are we (white and Asian) just smarter or they (brown/black) just dumber?

These are two ways of stating the same thing. If one group is smarter compared to another, then that necessarily means that the second group is dumber compared to the first. There is no gold standard against which to measure this sort of thing.

And it's not entirely accurate. These are about averages. On average, whites may be smarter, but this in no way says anything about the qualities of any individual white, no more than the higher IQs of Jews compared to whites says anything about individuals.

When a poor Asian with severe learning disability (without help) while putting minimal effort still surpass regular healthy brown/black students should be a major red flag. What is going on here? They have the exact same opportunity as anyone else.

They do, but they just don't use these opportunities well enough. Part of it no doubt is cultural - when Asian parents get mad at their kids for not being straight A students, while black kids get bullied by other black kids for 'acting white' when they do well in school, that no doubt has a huge effect on the incentives to do well in school.

Around this time last year, the thought that the left would make killing right wingers mainstream was an extreme outcome.

It was inevitable though, as soon as they started justifying political violence. It started around 2015, when they justified violence against legal KKK rallies, and then Trump supporters - now they've leveled up to straight up justifying murder.

If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.

Jazmine Barnes, Jussie Smollett, Covington, Erica Thomas, Dreadlocks Girl.

And that's just scratching the surface of 2019. One year.

The bar to be granted anonymity, at least in local news, is high.

This part I believe, but local news is generally much better than the corporate propaganda masquerading as 'national news media'.

Contrary to popular belief, journalists have no shred of honesty, decency or humanity.

So, please, by all means, tell me why a journalist would risk ruining their career and tarnishing their industry by making up a source.

Just yesterday, I was reading an article that made the exact same argument about Rolling Stone/UVA Jackie.

Not saying that it's justified, only that there's a difference between cruelty for profit and for the sake of extermination.

I don't disagree, but there's something slightly more pathetic about capitulating when you have enough power to fix the issues

It's a mirage, these politicians have no power to fix anything, even if they wanted to, which they don't.

Johnson will not be re-elected.

It'll be three years till the next election.

At least the riots are only in certain far-left cities and not everywhere, it could be worse. Although, if a black man dies from police anywhere near me, I'm going on a long vacation.

Eh, use your 2A rights to defend yourself.

The BBC is an open air asylum. Most British are not mental patients though. It is not an accurate reflection of England by any means.

And that's not even discussing Jimmy Savile.

In part, though that is not the sole reason by any means, elite institutions are on roughly the same side as Stalin, the side that gives them more power over the people. You should read what they were writing about Stalin at the time, and even during the purges. It was not just Walter Duranty. Countless other 'intellectuals' worshiped Stalin.

Disagree, Leopold just wanted to make a profit at the great expense of the people of the Congo, which I think is quite a bit different than if he wanted consciously to wipe them from the face of the earth.

These radical leftist 'teachers' have basically one example of bad colonialism, and they're going to milk it for all it's worth. They sure as hell aren't going to talk about how the British set free the slaves, or how missionary schools elevated people from Sri Lanka to Nigeria.

WRONG, blacks can't be racist.

Least of all against Jews, who are outranked by blacks on the Oppwession Scale by quite a bit.
