Of course not. Race is just a social construct: individuals tend to be sorted into certain "races" as they share similar phenotypes and such with others.
Though, I think people may claim that intelligence is relevant to one's race because of the way one interacts socially, beliefs of their community, etc. This is all specific to the location and culture, not the race.
While intelligence is not fixed over races, race can impact intelligence in terms of discrimination, which is why Affirmative Action has come about in the US (e.g some may be forced to live in poverty-stricken areas, are unable to get good careers and hence impacts future education as one cannot pay for university fees - given that they don't live in Scotland).

You're new. Stick around and you will see how much of a joke that title is!

Does anyone in this thread actually study psychology to give an informed opinion on this topic and take part in a discussion? I think that would be useful instead of wishful speculation.
Wonder how we have doctors and neurosurgeons of all races around the world, what a stupid theory get in the bin
The reason for somr races being less intelligent on average is because poorer families reproduce like 12 kids but they won't be educated whereas the educated ones don't have as many kids which causes average intelligence to fall for a country/race.
Not implying that if you have many siblings you're dumb. don't cry snowflakes!!
