Grand Wizard+ degree + title - good judgment=just how stupid are you?

Commentary: Why is It Always the Learned, ‘Intelligent’ Racists Who Spout Nonsense About Black Intellect?

Oh, no -- not again.

It appears to be that time once more for the race and IQ debate to rear its foolish head by dint of something said or published by a person of purportedly high intelligence.

We were last here in 1994, with the release of "The Bell Curve," in which Charles Murray, a historian, and Richard Hernstein, a behavioral psychologist, argued that black people, on the whole, are of lower intelligence than whites as a whole.

A firestorm erupted, with loads of dissenters and critics on one side and loads of defenders and believers on the other. Murray swam through the turbulence, laughing all the way to the bank as the book climbed the bestseller lists. His co-conspirator in the publishing crime had died shortly before the book came out.

Now comes the chancellor of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a scientific research facility in New York, telling a British audience that he sees a dire future for Africans 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.”
Who died and made this sucka honorary authority on black people?!
Lawd, everybody wants a piece of us.
I say, "kick rocks!"
If you read the commentary under the pic, posted above, you'll see that Watson has been shut down and is now quiet. Hmmm, why is that?!
Check this out...if that's your conviction-stick with it.
What do you stand to lose that has caused you to suddenly shut up?
Shutting up should've been the 1st course of action anyway.
Just because an idiot with a title says something doesn't mean it's true.
I say to you old chap-kick rocks!

Please know...threats of hell and bible scriptures are futile-look at your church if you don't believe me! Get your 'body of christ' in order and then come talk to me.

Yours in Reason, Bria :)
