But to keep a sense of perspective it is always worth breaking the debate down, and measuring along some equitable variables. It is widely reported that approximately 10 percent of the white population live in poverty. There is enough evidence to show that poverty is inversely proportional to IQ. In other words, the lower your IQ, the higher your propensity to be poverty striken. So using this as a yardstick, we can calculate what the approximate white IQ is at the lower 10 percentile. Using a Monte Carlo simulator you arrive at an IQ of about 81.
What does this mean? You may want to read an earlier article where I suggested that South Africa is probably graduating higher grade matrics at an IQ of 89, and standard grade matrics at 75. So most of these whites would probably be incapable of getting a fairly good education, and may have enjoyed protected employment in the past.
Bear in mind that a functional first world economy needs a minimum IQ of 90 to prosper.
Now let's have a look at the black numbers, to see how the 81 IQ level relates to them. A stunning 87% are below this level. Using a black population of 40 million, this would mean that only 5.3 million are above this level; if this is considered the competency level. Moreover, if there is no white prejudice, and this is considered the minimum equitable threshold in order to participate in the economy, then South Africa is completely incapable of joining the first world ranks, by creating employment for the majority, given the dearth of brain power.
But some of us already know this.
Finally, if you add the white portion to the black portion (above 81), you get approximately 9.3 million. Which seems remarkably close to the 9.2 million SITE and Income Tax payers. Arguably if we are at "full employment", as dictated by IQ. If this is so, then the levels of white poverty are proportional, and we cannot expect South Africa to advance any further. It's Peter Principle has been breached, in other words, we have reached our level of incompetence.
