RE: A Genome-Wide Association Study Identified New Variants Associated With Mathematical Abilities in Chinese Children
Mathematical ability is moderately heritable, and it is a complex trait which can be evaluated in several different categories. A few genetic studies have been published on general mathematical ability. However, no genetic study focused on specific mathematical ability categories. In this study, we separately performed genome-wide association studies (GWASs) on 11 mathematical ability categories in 1 146 students from Chinese elementary schools. We identified 7 genome-wide significant single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with strong linkage disequilibrium (LD) among each other (all r2>0.8) associated with mathematical reasoning ability.
All gene variants associated with intelligence that have been identified so far are more frequent in whites and east Asian populations than blacks. How goes the liberal effort to prove all races are equal and that random historical accidents affect the brain more than one's genes? Oh that's right. They refuse to do the research because they're afraid of what they might find.

The research is known to everyone and the results on the ground bear out the research. Consider, for example, that five percent to six percent of all American college professors in subjects like literature, history and political science are black. In the quantitative (hard) sciences, it's one percent or less. Not much better in the qualitative (soft) sciences.
Given that the median IQ of black Americans is about 85, that five or six percent in the humanities and social science is representative of what you would expect noting that verbal ability is the strong suit of the black race in the aggregate.
Always exceptions. The exceptions are not the measure of the aggregate.
It's a great, big open secret that everyone is fully aware of… but through a constant barrage of propaganda, conditioning and brainwashing, even this narrative can be altered, especially during the formative years of one's life.
