A rather hilarious conclusion, perhaps derived from the ignorance of a pre-internet era of study?"Three: Carol Barnes notes that human mental processes are controlled by melanin -- that same chemical which gives Blacks their superior physical and mental abilities.
My simple understanding is that while members of any significantly large group demonstrate a wide range on both scales, the averages would suggest physical and mental prowess existing as opposites. On average. Which is almost meaningless when applied to an individual level. And I'm not sure we've ever successfully avoided the mess that is environmental / societal / developmental factors.
TL;DR It's a bunch of racist rubbish and we all know it.
I am sure a nominee, if before the Senate, will be challenged on said controversy. She can very well speak for herself on the matter.
