This debate over intelligence is silly. "Intelligence" is not the right word to use here, because intelligence becomes associated with words like, "better", and, "superior", which is not the case. Europeans and Africans are different, that much is clear. The focus should be on what works best for each group, as opposed to saying that certain races do things worse or better. The Europeans created automobiles, for example, to get from one point to another faster, where the land is flat and open. This is a great invention to accomplish this. The Indians of Brazil, on the other hand, would find this vehicle useless. These Indians in the rainforest would be better off with a machete in order to cut a path through the jungle. Different environments need specific tools to accomplish certain tasks. The Europeans and the Indians don't have the same goals or the same ideals. That is the key here. The high-tech, fast pace lifestyle of Europeans may not be what other peoples throughout the world want. For the Europeans, or any race for that matter, to instill their own ways upon others and to claim that their ways are better is illogical. People don't live the same, and no one should expect them to. Why certain people developed a certain way of living in their small portion of the world is irrelevant. The point is that they did, and it works for them, and that's all that should matter.
