I did no such thing. I cited an article called Race and Intelligence, and they use IQ to measure intelligence.
I could have just as easily cited many other articles, such as Race and Wealth, Race and Strength, etc. The point was to show Nova that there is scientifically measurable differences between races, and those are inheritable (meaning genetic, not just environmental). You, yourself cited some piece about race and genitalia, did you not?
The reason I chose the Race and Intelligence article is because there is a definite correlation between IQ and academic achievement. That's in the article. Read it.
One thing I did say, and may have spurred this whole (misinformed) debate is that I do agree Asians perform better in academics. That article goes directly to that.
Nowhere did I say that Asians are superior as a race.

You're falling in the straw man trap that Nova laid out.
