DNA Discoverer: Blacks Less Intelligent Than Whites
Echoing other notable scientists like William Shockley and Richard J. Herrnstein...James D. Watson, co-discoverer of the DNA helix, told the Sunday Times of London 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."

Do you agree with Watson when he wrote in his memoirs that "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."?
Or do you feel that it is just a perception brought on by a race hindered by economic and social factors that contribute to low IQ scores?
Personally, I think it is common sense that genetics places a strong role in race intelligence, and I agree with all of the above people in regards to their notion that there are extremely distinct differences in overall intelligence between races and that the more intelligent races suffer by being outbred by the lesser intelligent ones.
