I guess going back to the post that sparked the convo, you're good.

The low IQ of the radical converts in question can reflect greater factors like you suggest, such as poverty (no access to education) or lack of infrastructure which could lead them to more drastic measures. I think that's why it's so common in war torn or 3rd world countries, and is likely the reason why terrorism has the highest death toll in the least stable Middle East and African countries.

I don't know how to read this in a way that isn't "racism is correct"

I think that's probably common to extra-legal revolutionaries in general. Who's gonna be the first one to pick up a gun cause they feel disaffected and dissatisfied with society? Probably the one who's gonna feel disaffected and dissatisfied in any society.

Muhammad Ali gave his wife grief about how long her skirt was and turned around and cheated her. I don't think he is at all great as he said he was.

The guy had faults especially in terms of attitude, but it doesn't mean that he wasn't educationally and skillfully intelligent.
