It's a load of rubbish.

If one searches for the image, one also gets this disclaimer
en.wikipedia.o   r    g/w iki/Wik ipedia:Images_and_media_for_deletion/2007_January_17#Image:AverageIQ-Map-World. p   n    g_.28talk_.7C_delete.   2     9
Values from Race Differences in Intelligence by Richard Lynn, based on a similar but non-identical map in the book. Values are average IQ scores for the indigenous peoples of each region. For example, the values for Australia are for Indigenous Australians, not the immigrants of European ancestry that now make up the majority of the Australian population.


It is clearly racist, and has been marked for deletion by wikipedia.
One comment on the deletion discussion page says;
(there is a link to the discussion on the page url above)
Of course it's totally bogus, because it is a crackpot theory, but nonetheless it accurately illustrates a popular crackpot theory.


This IQ map is clearly posted for the wrong reasons, is a disgraceful slur on Australian Aboriginals and should be deleted.

I think you should delete it. As I said, it is a racist slur on our Aboriginal countrymen.

Thanks for deleting.

I will leave my follow up posts there as a warning to others who may be tempted to misuse that map for nefarious purposes.
