    Do all ethnic groups have the same innate intellectual potential?

    I would say no, because of two reasons: 1. IQ tests which consistently show very big differences in intellectual abilities among the different peoples of the world. 2. Lack of new revolutionary inventions, among everyone else, except the European descended people, and the Northeast Asian...

These tribal communities are not...

    Were any Communist parties outside of Europe supporters of ethnic federalization?

    In the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia (and, to some extent, in Yugoslavia as well), Communists federalized their countries along ethnic lines. In turn, this helped facilitate the break-up of these countries once Communist rule there collapsed--with the Soviet Union becoming fifteen separate...

    I am curious as what ethnic background this person might be as pictured in this old tin type image, which I estimate to be from the 1860s or 1870s. His hat appears similar to a pakakha / cossak hat so it could be he is from a region of Russia as opposed to China or a similar region. Most...
