White Privilege …yea right. More on this later.
Newsflash: The Top 10 Poorest Counties in America are in Appalachia and populated By Whites.
Folks, this is REAL Poverty seen below, as in no subsidized vouchers to pay for modern forced Central Air (HVAC) with which to set at 85F in the dead of winter paid for by tax payers, but (Whites) Living with NO power or running water, and using stoves that burn wood or coal for heat. No government supplied vouchers are sent to Appalachian families to burn said wood either.
Don’t cut wood= No heat.
Not many Section 8 vouchers either for that matter, in this neck of the woods. Majority White West Virginia is much safer than majority black Mississippi, despite being one of the poorest states in America. West Virginia is the 2nd poorest state (behind only Mississippi), the 4th whitest state at 93.9% white, and is the 13th safest state vs Mississippi which America’s Most Dangerous State at 40% Black, the highest percentage in America. This indicates that race is a better predictor of crime.
Stove and Heater all in one.
The 10 U.S. counties with the lowest annual median household incomes are:
1. Owsley County, Ky. – $21,177
2. Zavala County, Texas – $21,843
3. Clay County, Ky. – $22,255
4. Knox County, Ky. -$22,493
5. Wilcox County, Ala. – $22,611
6. Quitman County, Miss. – $22,625
7. Sumter County, Ala. – $22,857
8. McCreary County, Ky. – $23,163

Not much has changed from decades ago.
Have Axe, Will Heat!!
Families still stay together vs 3/4 Out of Wedlock Births in black community. And notice, still going to work…
Coal Mining has been decimated by the Obama Administration, A tough, dangerous job that paid the bills for many Appalachian families is all but gone.
Distrust of Government is pervasive.
Appalachian Miners and their families were bombed by the US Army Martin MB Bombers via President Harding, for their part in daring to object and strike due to unsafe mining work conditions, no overtime, no weekends, long and dangerous hours underground, rampant child labor, and other outrages from Zionist Robber Baron owners. The only time US Residents were bombed by their government was in the Miners Wars. The largest Armed Rebellion since the US Civil War.

Definately too proud to beg. Works for food..
Bluegrass, banjos and moonshine are still popular attractions, and good old fashioned fun can still be found here. I dont suspect covers of 50 Cent I’M A PIMP are performed here. Thank GOD.
Most are fiercely self sufficient and independent. Gardens
..And Hunting are ways of life here. ‘Smoked’ Turkey.
Will Hunt For Food..
Squirrel biscuits and Gravy are a local delicacy.
Shot over resident Mountain Feist dog.
The arguement that poverty causes crime prostrated forth by the apologists for black crime, is a (coon) dog that simply wont hunt. No pun intended.

Rock Climbing, River Rafting, Fishing, and Sky Diving are popular activities here.
Dont be afraid and knee jerk all things Appalachian, demonized by our Kosher media. Its beautiful, as are the people.
The above photos are of the poorest people in America.
You dare give these people sympathy, and youre liable to be be punched out…feeling sorry for themselves is not a condition they are familiar with.
Dwight Yoakam wrote and sang a really nice song about it called Route 23, miner folks coming up to Ohio and Michigan for factory work to escape the mines. (Red Line on Map is Highway Rural Route 23.)

Has anyone ever seen or heard of poor whites (hillbillys, crackers, rednecks, briars et al) ever rioting in their trailer parks due to police brutality or the closing of an illegal bar such as in Detroit 1967 when Blacks burned Detroit down?
I rest my case..
Please note that Many such Appalachian people (Irish-Scotch) were enslaved in early America. See the post here on White Slavery in America

Some facts on intelligence levels of blacks:
1) Whites on average have a 15 point higher IQ than blacks, across many different studies.
> “There is a long-standing 15 point or 1 standard deviation difference between the intelligence test scores of African Americans and White Americans, though it might have narrowed slightly in the then recent years. The difference was largest on those tests, verbal or non-verbal, that best represented the general intelligence factor (g).”
Source: American Psychological Association
2) IQ across different ethnic groups in the US: Blacks have an average IQ of 85, whites of 103, Asians 106 and Jewish Americans 113:
>The study found that the average IQ for African Americans was lower than those for Latino, White, Asian, and Jewish Americans (85, 89, 103, 106, and 113, respectively; Herrnstein & Murray, 1994, pp. 273–278)
Source: University of California and University of Western Ontario
3) Overall, 18% of Asians have an IQ over 120, 10% of whites do and only 1% of blacks. Nearly 84% of blacks have an IQ below 100, which is slightly below the average IQ for whites. The ratio of white Americans to black Americans who have an IQ over 125 is 30:1.
>The IQ gap between blacks and whites in the United States—15-17 points—has not changed since it was first measured nearly a century ago. Both races’ test scores rose during the century, but the gap remained as large at the end of the century as at the beginning despite considerable social change.

4) For those who claim that IQ tests are biased against blacks and that’s why they keep getting lower scores, there are IQ tests like the Raven’s Progressive Matrices which don’t have any language and rely entirely on visual pattern recognition. It’s simply finding patterns in visual shapes. Even then there is a marked difference between black and white IQ scores, not only in America but internationally as well, like in Africa between white and black engineering students:

5) Harvard psychologists took a look at how black children adopted by well off upper-middle class white families at a very young age perform on IQ tests once they grow up in white families with good socioeconomic conditions. Black children adopted by white parents average 89 on IQ tests at age 17 (slightly better than the 85 average for blacks nationally). White children who grew up in the same households and had white biological parents on average scored 109. Even with the same socioeconomic upbringing, the racial IQ gap remains.
>The Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study examined the IQ test scores of 130 black or interracial children adopted by advantaged white families. The aim of the study was to determine the contribution of environmental and genetic factors to the poor performance of black children on IQ tests as compared to white children. The studies’ general findings were that the IQs of children of a particular race did not differ significantly depending on whether they were raised by their biological parents or by adoptive parents of a different race. The gap between black and white IQ scores remained even if growing up in the same family.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Transracial_Adoption_Study
6) East Asian countries have on average the highest IQ scores. African countries have on average the lowest. European countries are generally between the Asian and African countries.
7) Blacks performs substantially worse in standard school tests than whites.
> From the higher education achievement perspective: In 2012, the mean critical reading SAT score for college accepted students was 428 for blacks and 527 for whites. For mathematics, it was 428 for blacks and 536 for whites. For writing it was 417 for blacks and 515 for whites.

9) For those looking to pin the lower IQ scores of blacks on socioeconomic factors, IQ is largely genetically determined:
> Estimates in the academic research of the heritability of IQ have varied from below 0.5 to a high of 0.8. (where 1.0 indicates that monozygotic twins have no variance in IQ and 0 indicates that their IQs are completely uncorrelated) Various studies have found the heritability of IQ to be between 0.7 and 0.8 in adults and 0.45 in childhood in the United States.
