    Race probably factors into cultural tendencies, or at least correlates with them. Correlation with intelligence is much harder to demonstrate, partly because it is hard to define "intelligence", and harder to measure it, especially to devise measures that are not dependent on factors like culture. @ColonelGadaafi explained in more detail.

    Then this abused child and used woman killed herself.

    Yet Marilyn, Elvis, JFK and Robert Kennedy, all are idols.
    I hope you aren't holding Marilyn's background as a child abuse victim against her.

    It is possible to find fault with even the most apparently unassailable of idols: Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, even Mother Theresa. But people idolize them for their virtues, not their faults. If we wait for the perfect hero or role model, we will never find one.

    Marilyn Monroe's sexuality is what she is famous for.

    And it is so easy to see her sexuality is that of a little girl. As a little girl she was forced to be sexy for men and she parlayed that into a career.

    And yet it says so much about the sexuality of powerful men that they are attracted to the forced sexuality of a little girl.

    Of course the greatest sign of male power is to rape a little girl and get away with it.

    And this fantasy of power imbues our society.

    Power, Kissinger tells us, is the greatest aphrodisiac. And we know who he wants power over - he want power over a helpless little girl call Norma Jean, later to become Marilyn Monroe.

    And ask yourself, how did the two most powerful men in the world, JFK and his brother Robert, act out their sexual fantasy of power?

    The answer is with a woman posing as a little girl.

    Pity the country that needs a hero.

    We don't need heroes, any more than we need music, parks in the city, or strawberry ice cream. They enrich our lives, though, and are experienced best as individuals, not countries.

    Do the racism of Elvis was based on a false 19th century biological theory of race that said half castes were inferior.
    So? Those were the values of his era.

    Source? Any direct quotes or statements? Again, I could well believe this to be the case (given the time period)... although in general I think Elvis was seen as pretty racially progressive for his day.

    And, again, Elvis is not one of my idols.

    er... Yes, many Southerners of Elvis' era endorsed racial harmony, right? haha...

    Is saying "Elvis was a dick because he was racist", no different from the millions of other white Americans who either lived in or came from Dixie?

    And I may get accused of excusing his actions lol.. I just think it's best in life to see things in their given context.

    This is true. The false 19th century biological theory of race was accepted throughout the scientific world.

    However one of the most important jobs of scientists is to falsify scientific theories. And this biological theory of race was falsified by biologists themselves in the 20th century.

    However popular culture still believes the false 19th century biological theory of race.

    Keep repeating yourself and the dummies will believe you. The false belief of racial equality is popular but foolish.
