    This is why I purposefully included the phrase "We are all basically the same thing" when referencing humans, my point was to emphasise that some humans may be more inclined to one activity vs another. You don't specifically NEED a labrador to bring back the duck you shot, any dog could do that with proper training, but, the labrador is specifically bred to do it. So will do that particular task well.

    Dogs can vary quite wildly so maybe not the best example but hopefully I made my point, but since we're on the subject of intelligence, it isn't just race difference, what about male female differences. Are girls smarter than boys nowadays because they seem to be performing better in school? There is no "danger" in talking about things like this as long as you realise that there is no "superior" race, just one race may be more inclined to one activity than another.


Inclination is fine, and is part of cultural, locational, environmental factors etc...

If girls are doing better it could be for many reasons...but since we haven't changed genetically in the last 50years or so with big pushes in public schools...this definitely seems and environmental change. What was done to help young girls...how do we continue to do this and also find a similar change for boys? That's a very productive discussion I would agree.
