A Tripartite Taxonomy of Theories Explaining the Black-White Group Difference on Standardized IQ Tests, Based on the Models of Development.
Grubb, Henry J.
Negro Educational Review, v36 n2 p66-71 Apr 1985
Theories explaining differences in IQ performances between races in terms of (a) genetics and (b) the role of the environment are both criticized. It is argued that the Cultural Distance Approach, which stresses the role of a subculture's distance from the major culture on which IQ questions are based, has the greatest explanatory power. (RDN)
