Default DNA pioneer James Watson stripped of honours after 'reckless' race remarks


In 2007, Dr Watson said he was
'inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa'


He had told a magazine in 2007
he was "inherently gloomy about
the prospect of Africa" as "all our social policies
are based on the fact that their intelligence
is the same as ours - where all the testing
says not really".

While Dr Watson also said he hoped everyone was equal, he added: "People who have to deal with black employees find this is not true."

If it was a case of it being an old statement that he has since learned from then I think it would be silly but, judging from LT's post on his comments about black employees, it's an attitude that he still has and in that case, **** everything about him.
