In terms of group differences, people of northeast Asian descent have higher average IQ scores than people of European lineage, who in turn have higher average scores than people of sub-Saharan African descent

The average score for Hispanic Americans falls somewhere between the white and black American averages. The American Psychological Association (APA) issued a report in 1996 and concluded that IQ tests reliably measure a real human trait, that ethnic differences in average IQ exist, that good tests of IQ are not culturally biased against minority groups, and that IQ is a product of both genetic inheritance and early childhood environment.

East Asian do not have higher IQs. They prepare for tests more than white people. There is an entire industry with East Asians dedicated to preparing students to take tests that non-Asians are not familiar with. Two weeks ago, an East Asian SAT prep teacher was on the game show "Hollywood Game Night." East Asians also get their hands on answer books.
