Equally Capable Equally Smart: A Candid Look at Race, Gender and Intelligence in our Society, by Ralford W. Jones

Publication Date: 
September 2015

Race and intelligence are usually controversial topics and I usually approach articles or books about these topics with caution or apprehension because the debate surrounding these topics seems to be never-ending. Traditional views on intelligence contend that we inherit our intelligence from our genes (nature) or our environment (nurture) while contemporary views about intelligence hold that our cognitive ability is dependent on both nature (genes) and nurture (the environment). There is no consensus, however, as to the degree that each factor contributes to an individual’s or group’s intelligence.
