James Watson, the other half of “Watson and Crick”, is famous for his outlandish comments about the human race. Well he’s at it again. Touring London, promoting his new book, he was set to speak at London’s Science Museum, and then he said this. “Black people are less intelligent than white people.” And this. “People who have to deal with black employees find that we are not all equal.”
This is the same guy who thinks we ought to work ‘ugly’ women out of the gene pool and that women ought to be able to end their pregnancy if the baby has the gay gene.
Needless to say, the museum canceled his talk as they said he’d crossed the line.
