Uh, I disagree, its actually quite the opposite, at one point during ancient times Asia was the technological hub of the world. Many of the things we have today is because of their innovation, science and intelligence. There was only a time from about 150-800 years ago that Asia slowed down due to constant turmoil and change.

then, contrary to what you're saying, you do believe they are born smarter. if they are born with "something that makes them want to learn more than others", then that's the same thing. and unless there's a lot of evidence of that, it's just a theory. i'm not yelling, just saying. it all comes down to culture, society, and education.

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

Are you serious? The person who invented gunpowder was from Asia, before Guttenberg perfected the printing press someone from Asia first invented it. Genghis Khan was Asian. If you need more enlightenment so you can reassess your view that " Asia was never a powerful, smart, or innovative part of the world", I suggest reading this book called The Year of Rice and Salt.

During the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment, what was Asia doing? I'm not trying to put down Asia by any means, but I think it's safe to say that modern day Asia is more influenced by Western civilization than vice verca.

Should whites be put together as one group? I mean, I'm Irish on my dad's side and Eastern European from my mom's side. Wouldn't you consider those two different groups? Germanic vs Celtic.

Lol, I didn't know The Inquisition happened in Asia.

And Wukkadb, unfortunately very little is known about Asian powerhouses Japan and China during the Scientific Revolution and The Age of Enlightenment because they adopted an Isolationist mentality. BTW the Age of Enlightenment is my favourite era of all time because folks like Thomas Paine, Napoleon, Voltaire, Immanuel Kant and Goethe were around.
