I forget exactly how, but yesterday I wound up digging up this old coot in a news search yesterday:
Figure 1: Enjoys black people
In case you’ve forgotten who this guy is, he’s American DNA pioneer Dr. James Watson who, after an illustrious career that included countless accolades and a Nobel Prize, effectively ended it with the following ill-advised remarks:
“[I’m] 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 then said that he hopes everyone is equal, but “people who have to deal with black employees find this is not true.”
Way to put the final nail in your own coffin, dipshit.
So one of the most highly acclaimed genetic scientists in the world wraps up his career by basing the intelligence (or lack thereof) of black people on IQ tests and the fact that Shanequa fucked up his order at Burger King. Nevermind the fact that the ‘testing’ he’s referring to increasingly indicates that a.) IQ differences between the races can be attributed to environmental factors and cultural bias in the tests themselves, and b.) no genetically causal relationship exists between skin color and intelligence – and the idea that there IS a causal relationship is considered ludicrous in the scientific community at-large.
There’s something about this idiot’s downfall that just makes me smile, especially given his statement about black employees. It makes me smile because, if basing the intelligence of an entire race of people on a sample of a few bad apples is the game we’re going to play, then by all means deal me in, motherfucker:

Followup: If you go to Google Images and search “Ugly White People”, James Watson is fifth on the list.
Followup 2: Even funnier, if you go to Google Images and search “Ugly Black People”, he’s number six.
