Girl, that ain't even news. LOL
We're extremely intelligent. The thing (I don't want to say "problem") with black women, though, is that we're so busy taking care of everyone else that we don't push for better for ourselves. We're just not that... selfish (for lack of a better word).
IMO, the only reason it's changing now is because women aren't expected to be married and have kids right out of high school like they were in my mother's day.
Also, we've always been smarter, but due to racism, sexism, and bias against the poor.....
And as you pointed out somewhere else, priviledge allows some people to get away with not being as intelligent as others.
So, on one hand you have: white, male, college grad, only has to fend for self, has to appear powerful to attract a mate.
on the other hand you have: black, female, could only afford to go to trade school, has to appear submissive to attract a mate.
There's no wonder that even though black females are smarter, they don't do as well in business.
