Re: The Bell Curve : Reaction time and IQ

I have a question to the bell curve people. What exactly
constitutes "Black" or "White," since there are really no
'true' races? There are great variations between English,
French, and Italians, and they are usually all considered
"white". Similarly, people from different regions of Africa
show great variation from East to West and North to South and
are mostly considered "black". What, if any, parameters were
used in classifying the races in the aforementioned studies?
Beyond all this, what is the use in performing such studies?
