Is racial IQ a myth?

Can anyone name a group with the same dark history( slavery, Jim Crow) as African Americans who have succeeded without any form reperations/aid? 

FYI: Jews and Asian Americans received reperations

Update:

Why are people overlooking the fact that the Jewish population that was here before the 1940 built wealth, funded and profited off slavery? And Asians were never enslaved here, they never endured Jim Crow, sundown towns and Tuskegee experiments.

    Yes. No race has a higher IQ than the rest

    Neither Jews nor Asian Americans received "reperations" [sic] with the following exceptions:

    1.  Jews got reparations from Germany, not the USA.  Israel was a separate matter.

    2.  ONLY Japanese Americans got reparations from the USA because of their WW2 internments.

    Why did your question refer to racial IQ?

    "FYI: Jews and Asian Americans received reperations"

    Incorrect. Holocaust survivors received reparations. These reparations were paid by the country that committed the Holocaust.

    Not sure I understand the tie in with success or IQ.

    The Irish!

    Study history and you will find that the Irish were displaced by freed slaves when they went north. That many cities would allow a black man to live there but the Irish had to "move on". They arrived on our shores at their own expense and often lacked a basic education level that a lot of former slaves had.

    Enslaved by England from about 1100 CE till about 1913 with Irish Catholic's being the most oppressed. Which in case you can't do the math is longer then slavery in North America lasted.

    Some time do some study on how this anti-Irish mentality still is hurting the Irish Catholic's of Northern Ireland to this day.

    Are you aware that close to 90% of Africans taken as slaves in the 19th century did not get taken to the United States? Most went to central and South America.

    Not FYI, in this instance. It should be FYM (for misinformation), unless you can prove it.

    Yes. They only compare IQ by country. The USA averages about 89.
