In the thread about racists, it was said that research has been done by racists to prove that africans have smaller brains. What I'm wondering is why anybody would care. From what I've seen, bigger brain doesn't seem to make people smarter at all. The smartest people I've ever known were always small people who would presumably have smaller brains. The smart people I associate(d) with do not follow any sort of pattern when it comes to head size. My highschool chem teacher was very smart and he had a small head. My highschool physics teacher had a master's degree in physics and spoke 4 languages; he had a big head. In my current school, some of the engineering profs have big heads, some have small heads. From what I have seen, head/brain size do not affect intelligence at all. Why would anybody care if africans had bigger or smaller brains?
