Here's a good image that shows off that difference that additional resolution can achieve.
IQ tests have been shown to be culturally biased (and thus indirectly racially biased), as there's an assumption that people will have certain cultural knowledge & norms.
Perhaps those tests which rely on questions that require some cultural knowledge (which seem to be more of a test of how well you know a culture than general learning ability, but I digress), but please tell me how something like Raven's progressive matrices is culturally or racially biased.
My guess is that it's an effort to avoid the looming backlash as Congress (who barely even perceives the internet yet) starts to get waves of angry mail from constituents complaining that they've "lost our life savings on this Kick-Starter-thing and now they claim they're not responsible"....
If that were true, Congress would have come down much harder on the banks and stock market already after the housing crisis.
They don't really care, but a few might use it as a point to extort^H^H^H^H^H^H get campaign donations from Kickstarter.
