Genes determine our culture? What?

I said they influence our nature, and thus influence our culture.

Yet in every culture the people that break stereotype and influence change in their collective society are the ones who "think differently", they are not people who are in any way brought up differently or genetically different than those who they influence.

No unique genes required, only a view of the world looking past the proverbial cultural box. It's a human tendency, not a racial tendency.

RE: White people in the US are so privileged.
Other than being in America where is my privilege? I would like to cash in on it please where is it?

I work and worked for everything I have to the bone some years. I have almost nothing and I am not just laying about dicking off. I work harder than most people do is that my issue? Should I be like most other lazy ass white people I know and just try and get you to do it for me?

Some white people fit the bill, oh but so do some black, red, yellow, green, brown, beige, rouge...people. Constantly labeling everything in groups just makes us all look like assholes but at least you look like one first.

Not surprised at all.

Not only do those of North East Asian descent come a hardworking culture, they are also the most intelligent people on the planet. While the U.S and European IQ means are between 95-105, 6 year olds from Hong Kong average around 110-115.

Um, no. Besides not providing any evidence, the statement is wrong.

IQ measure is not absolute - it is relative. '100' means 50th percentile in your comparative group. So the 6-year-olds from Hong Kong may well be above average for 6-year-olds, that's all that score would mean.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
