    As an A/A myself, this is just something I'd like to get a good answer for.

    There are no significant cortico-morphological differences across people with different melanin contents in their skin. Overall, humans are remarkably similar in this regard, independent of how much light their epidermis absorbs or reflects.

    African American frontal lobes would be indiscernible from the frontal lobes of non-African Americans if skin color was unknown and you had access only to view the lobes themselves.

    Not only this, but size or volume might be of zero importance here. Schizophrenics have some glitches in their frontal lobes, but it's not volume related.

    A/A's are lawyers, doctors, pilots, philosophs ..etc, just as any other race. I think it's only eviroment, not genetic heritage.

    A/A's started out on the low end, been discriminated and keept under foot, it's only in "recent" time that the racism has eased and A/A's have been granted more fairness.
