    Lol I've worked in banking and could surpass him at his stupid job within half a decade if I decided to stay in the financial services industry.

    My whole family (I have a big family) are either at university or are qualified professionals with degrees. My mum is one of the cleverest women I have ever met.

    In America the most highly educated group is the African immigrants. So yeah, that banker hasn't a clue what he is talking about.

    My spelling and grammar is also heaps better than yours. It is unlikely that you will be in a position in which you would need to consider whether or not to hire Black people.
    Yeah yeah. All that and you can't even comprehend how Black immigrants in the UK are the most uneducated and poorest of all major ethnic groups. Get a grasp of the context before bringing up irrelevancies like the Nigerian sub-group in the US.

    Often IQ doesnt matter its how hard they wanna work. Hell, if a black person has half the Iq but works 3x harder, they would be hired any day. Skin colour doesnt matter.

    Shouldn't this serve as motivation for blacks to prove this banker otherwise? As usual, people on here are getting emotional for no reason
    I don't feel the need to prove anything to an irrelevant person in an irrelevant job. My achievements are for myself and my loved ones.

    You got an E in maths why are you acting smart for?

    What she said was wholly relevant and just shows how racists use stereotypes and assert them as facts.

    Do you have stats to prove that Blacks in the UK are the least educated?

    Of course he doesnt, and he's stupid, he doesnt realise things like social and economic factors should also be factored, not just "you are x race, therefore you are smart/dumb"

    standard closet racist, there's many of them particularly in the upper class who try to veil it with silly logic.
    I wouldn't call it closet racism. It's pretty overt.

    Of course it's racist , you can't have a generalized statement lumping all black people , the President of the US is practically black lmao.

    The banker just seems to be out of touch , very out of touch.

    True, but if you asked the idiot he would probably say he isnt.

    Did you read under what circumstances that E was achieved? It has nothing to do with intelligence. I was dropping maths so I simply turned up to the exam because I had to be there. Surely a smart person would be able to infer something so basic. Evidently you are not.

    What she said is not relevant. She is talking about a tiny Nigerian minority in the USA, whereas the banker is talking about the typical black youth in the UK. Surely I'm smarter than both of you if you are unable to comprehend this.

    Go on, try and out-reason me, no ad-hominem, simply rational argument. You're not going to be able to.

    IQ is not immutable. And people are known to present results in a way that benefits them or supports their opinion. Soo its still irrelevant. And no **** OP its obviously a racist comment. The same way if it said "men" instead of black it would be sexist
