Black is What?


This is interesting. How different is this story from being called animals? Sorry, Tina can't get over it yet.
LONDON, England (CNN) -- Nobel laureate biologist James Watson was suspended Friday from his longtime post at a research laboratory and canceled his planned British book tour after controversial comments that black people are not as intelligent as white people.

James Watson won the 1962 Nobel prize for discovering the structure of DNA. Watson has apologized for the controversial remarks. Photos from CNN.com

He obviously isn't familiar with Lucky Dube?

He obviously hasn't learned anything from Percy Julian either.

He looks like the spooky guy in Poltergeist.

The man must be ailing from Alzheimers or something. To have been so brilliant to have discovered the structure of DNA he must obviously know that as my hero Mosche Feldenkrais states "The structure and tissues of this nerve system are inherited, but their function depends largely on individual experiences". Intelligence is a capacity, not an genetic inheritance.
