One source of bias,which may explain race related IQ differences,is the fact that most IQ tests rely heavily on the
individual's:

A.MATH SKILLS
B.ABILITY TO PAY ATTENTION
C.VOCABULARY LEVEL
D.INTERPERSONAL (SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE)

I AM THINKING BETWEEN C or D, what do you think?


















I am thinking that ones total life experience has a great effect on IQ testing results.

GuruBlue is right in that total life experience has a great effect on IQ results. To be more specific, IQ tests rely greatly on vocabulary. However, race — and socioeconomic differences related to race — lead to differences in vocabulary levels.

Here is an article with additional information:
