Black people 'less intelligent' scientist claims - Times Online

Black people 'less intelligent' scientist claims - Times Online

The 79-year-old geneticist said 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 he hoped that everyone was equal, but countered that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”.

Erm...what testing? This is clearly a statement of his own prejudices, nothing more, nothing less. I, personally, am unaware of any tests to support his wild, and quite simply, foolhardy assertion.

Apparently we're all dumbasses! The guy has clearly been too busy deconstructing the structure of DNA to watch an episode of the Jeremy Kyle Show or indeed, Jerry Springer. * extra looooooooooooooooong hiss*. Nonsense!

if u think his statements were annoying, read what half ofthe commenters said. It's fascinating how easily many of them just believed it. Goes to show the extent of prejudice this world still has to get rid of.

I saw this on the news stand yesterday and I hissed and remembering the childhood aphorism-silence is the best answer for a fool, went to work where I proceeded to disprove the gentleman's theory (even if I say so myself) mtchew!!!

This one has been doing the rounds ever since The Bell Curve was published about a decade ago. The authors, Murray and Hernstein even went one step further by doing a sort of intelligence league table. The Ashkenazic Jews came top and you can just guess which race was propping up the table.

What really gets me is the irresponsibily shown be these so called experts. All it takes is some fool to read that and a seed of prejudice is born. A prospective employer, for example, may recall how he read once that these blacks were really just glorified retards. Give the less qualified white guy the job or promotion instead then. Irresponsible spoutings from people who really should know better.

Thats all they know how looking down upon others and continously trying to find ways of creating the notion that they are superior in everyway. Make them commot for there. Nonsense!!

Yeah, I read about what this chap had to say. The guy has time on his hands. Scary thing is, though, is that people would actually believe his theory because of his scientific position!

Hahaha! I love your conclusion. But on a serious note, na wa, oh! People will never stop doubting the intelligence of 'black folks'. Anyway, I raised my blood pressure on this issue at my blog and so will have to let it rest. Not good for the heart, you know...
