well, Laklak could tell you about them Khoisan people from the kalahari desert who speak in clicks, does that count as being dumb?

Can you speak in clicks? I guess not. Does that make you dumb?

Dolphins and bats speak in clicks. Humans speak in cliques.

I welcome your dumb responses. But I was seeking a broad word, since IQ and the intelligence to survive in your present environment may not be the same.

People who think you can test intelligence are dumb. Intelligent people will never reveal how intelligent they are for fear of persecution.

Does this mean my brother (not me, I go red) is dumber in the Summer than the Winter?

Put some of these so-called intelligent palefaces into the Kalahari and see how long they survive.

Srsly:

Let's not forget that IQ is an arbitrary, subjective measure and thus isn't an absolute measure of an individuals worth or value. When a lot of people say 'Them dark skinned people are dumb' they're actually saying that the non-white members of the community are demonstrably less-than: less capable, less deserving, less valuable, and in some senses less human with fewer rights and protections, than themselves.

Where one sits on the bell curve of IQ only signifies where one sits on the bell curve of IQ, where the 'top' of the bell is described by the azimuth of the curve - the high point of the bit in the middle, not the tapering sliver of the bit on the right-hand side.
