If Psych is science, it should be free from culture bias. But there are accusations of culture bias in psych. Perhaps suggest/exaggerate diffs between/within cultures when none or ignore or underestimate them when they do exist. But are accusations of culture bias real biases or uncomfortable truths which reflect genuine differences/similarities?
1. Research into Intelligence
POINT = one eg of culture bias, which may have exaggerated the diffs between cultures, is research into intelligence. Today African American children in USA score on average 10 pts lower than white children on range of IQ tests (although was more and is continuing to narrow) - led to accusations that this diff is not real but but reflects bias
EXAMPLE/EXPLANATION = IQ tests biased towards certain ethnicities and cultures as designed by Western, white, middle class educated individuals. Many argue qs on them contain refs to vocab, objects, general knowledge and experiences familiar to Western, white, middle class, educated individuals, supporting idea cultural bias affects intelligence as qs only appropriate for culture that designed them
