Shades of Bell Curve: DNA Pioneer Watson Admits the Awful Truth

James Watson has the temerity to tell the Emperor's Court that he is naked as a jaybird.
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".

Mimicking the UN IRCC that just got a Nobel for fake science, there are surely many Committees the UN will establish to refute Nobel Prize winning-scientist Watson with fake science, as the IRCC did with its "consensus science" on Global Warming.

The Thought Police are beginning to swarm already:
Steven Rose, a professor of biological sciences at the Open University and a founder member of the Society for Social Responsibility in Science, said: "This is Watson at his most scandalous. He has said similar things about women before but I have never heard him get into this racist terrain. If he knew the literature in the subject he would know he was out of his depth scientifically, quite apart from socially and politically."

Of course, every kind of IQ test devised has over the last one hundred years demonstrated about two standard deviations between black Africans and white European ancestry test subjects. Indeed, Ashkenazi Jews & Japanese score half a standard deviation above White Europeans [though Germans & Poles score close to those two high flying outliers], with no cries of "racism" or being "unscientific."

Usually, when scientists stray from the quasi-religious orthodoxy of nanny-state multiculturalism, a campaign of personal character assassination is quickly ginned up to excommunicate the maverick offender from what is laughably called the "scientific community."
The respected journal Science wrote in 1990: "To many in the scientific community, Watson has long been something of a wild man, and his colleagues tend to hold their collective breath whenever he veers from the script."

For "script," read canonical rubrics approved by the Illuminati and Cabalmeisters.

Here is twaddle from committee composed of members of below-average intelligence:
Anti-racism campaigners called for Dr Watson's remarks to be looked at in the context of racial hatred laws. A spokesman for the 1990 Trust, a black human rights group, said: "It is astonishing that a man of such distinction should make comments that seem to perpetuate racism in this way. It amounts to fuelling bigotry and we would like it to be looked at for grounds of legal complaint."

The pitchfork-and-torches crowd of academicides are gathering to storm the gates of heterodoxy one more time.

And of course, the politicians can't let such an utterance go unpunished.
Critics of Dr Watson said there should be a robust response to his views across the spheres of politics and science. Keith Vaz, the Labour chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, said: "It is sad to see a scientist of such achievement making such baseless, unscientific and extremely offensive comments. I am sure the scientific community will roundly reject what appear to be Dr Watson's personal prejudices.

Of course, political bozos in Europe on the Left always have that WMD called "hate crimes" to punish heretical thoughts.

Dr. Larry Summers must be thinking: "There they go again."

UPDATE: I cross-posted at Redstate and received about 35 comments. Nothing like genes and race to get an on-line brawl started!

There have been a lot, trust me. They're just not conveniently discussed amongst us impressionable blank slates....

But I'd suggest you start with; 'The Bell Curve' by Richard J. Hernstein and Charles Murray; 'Why Race Matters',
by Michael Levin, Ph.D.; 'Race Differences
in Intelligence',
by Richard Lynn, Ph.D and 'Race, Evolution,
and Behavior',
by Philippe Rushton, Ph.D.
for starters.....

" Here is a shocking statistic showing that despite major gains, blacks have a huge distance to go to achieve racial parity with whites in higher education.

In 2004, 2,100 doctorates were awarded by universities in the United States in the fields of mathematical statistics, botany, optics physics, human and animal pathology, zoology, astrophysics, geometry, geophysics and seismology, general mathematics, nuclear physics, astronomy, marine sciences, nuclear engineering, polymer and plastics engineering, veterinary medicine, topology, hydrology and water resources, animal nutrition, wildlife/range management, number theory, fisheries science and management, atmospheric dynamics, engineering physics, paleontology, plant physiology, general atmospheric science, mathematical operations research, endocrinology, metallurgical engineering, meteorology, ocean engineering, poultry science, stratigraphy and sedimentation, wood science, polymer physics, acoustics, mineralogy and petrology, bacteriology, logic, ceramics science engineering, animal breeding and genetics, computing theory and practice, and mining and mineral engineering. Not one of these 2,100 doctoral degrees went to an African American."

of course when you consider how few white men received doctorates in such disciplines as, African-American Studies, Minority Feminist Conflict Resolution, African Immigrant Psychotherapy, Diversity Management, and related fields of study, it all evens out...
