There's No Excuse For A Dumb White Person

When the head of one of America's leading scientific institutes states that Blacks are genetically less intelligent than Whites then there's just no excuse for dumb blonds and stupid White men.

And if you were to ask Nobel Prize Winner, James Watson I'm sure that he would say that I do not possess the reasoning capacity to comment on his findings.

This type of "scientific" reasoning clearly explains why there is little response to genocides in African nations. There is clearly a segment of the world community that believes that nothing more than a replaceable labor force is being lost. It also explains why world leaders like Nicholas Sarkozy, President of France, believes that Africa has no cultural history. And, for that matter, explain whys George W Bush could sit passively by while thousands suffered in New Orleans.

So this leave us all trying to explain the behavior of " _________ ". I'll let you fill in the blank. I just can't be that mean.

And you were surprised by the story of the Jena 6!

Fury at DNA pioneer's theory: Africans are less intelligent than Westerners

Celebrated scientist attacked for race comments: "All our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really"

One of the world's most eminent scientists was embroiled in an extraordinary row last night after he claimed that black people were less intelligent than white people and the idea that "equal powers of reason" were shared across racial groups was a delusion.

James Watson, a Nobel Prize winner for his part in the unravelling of DNA who now runs one of America's leading scientific research institutions (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) , drew widespread condemnation for comments he made ahead of his arrival in Britain today for a speaking tour at venues including the Science Museum in London.

The 79-year-old geneticist reopened the explosive debate about race and science in a newspaper interview in which he said Western policies towards African countries were wrongly based on an assumption that black people were as clever as their white counterparts when "testing" suggested the contrary. He claimed genes responsible for creating differences in human intelligence could be found within a decade.

The newly formed Equality and Human Rights Commission, successor to the Commission for Racial Equality, said it was studying Dr Watson's remarks " in full". Dr Watson told The Sunday Times that he was "inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa" because "all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really". He said there was a natural desire that all human beings should be equal but "people who have to deal with black employees find this not true".

His views are also reflected in a book published next week, in which he writes: "There is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically. Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so."

The furore echoes the controversy created in the 1990s by The Bell Curve, a book co-authored by the American political scientist Charles Murray, which suggested differences in IQ were genetic and discussed the implications of a racial divide in intelligence. The work was heavily criticised across the world, in particular by leading scientists who described it as a work of " scientific racism".
