Expounding on the average perceived differences in intelligence between blacks and whites, the following graph shows the mean score on a 7-point scale asking respondents separately if blacks and if whites “tend to be unintelligent or tend to be intelligent”–the higher the score the more intelligent members of each race are perceived to be–by selected characteristics of the respondents making the assessments:
With Jews, assessments of blacks are in line with how most other groups (except blacks) perceive blacks. The narrow black-white gap stems from Jews rating whites as being less intelligent than any other group does.
The story is reversed for Asians, whose view of whites is in line with how other groups perceive whites. They assess black intelligence at a markedly lower level than others do, however. Consequently, they perceive the overall black-white gap to be wider than any other considered group does.
