Statement by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Board of Trustees and President Bruce Stillman, Ph.D. Regarding Dr. Watson’s Comments in The Sunday Times on October 14, 2007

Earlier this evening, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Board of Trustees decided to suspend the administrative responsibilities of Chancellor James D. Watson, Ph.D., pending further deliberation by the Board.

This action follows the Board’s public statement yesterday disagreeing with the comments attributed to Dr. Watson in the October 14, 2007 edition of The Sunday Times U.K.

There is no force in the physical universe as simultaneously unstoppable and destructive as the implacable need people have to feel better about themselves at the expense of others.

Everything else aside, I would not be surprised in the least to find that Africans are less intelligent. Decades, centuries of privation, starvation, lack of development, all that, must have an impact.

I think it can’t be true of American blacks. But Africans? Sure. Most of them, many of them, live in the most abject poverty and deprivation compared to the civilized world.

I don’t know. After watching the B.E.T. Hip Hop awards I am starting to have doubts about alot of things I once held as true.

Remember, nurture as much as nature has much to do with the capabilities and personalities of others. In a barren intellectual environment, where there is no perceived relationship between hard work and learning and success and wealth, the thug and the NEET grow to be dominant. It’s not just hip-hop; it’s Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan and all those kids in England who want to be rich and famous but won’t do GSCE maths.

As with the Dixie Chicks, you have a constitutional freedom of speech to give your opinion, but others have the freedom to ostracize you for doing so.

Good move for the laboratory. They should fire him next.

So much for freedom of speech and freedom of scientific inquiry.

And yes, aware that the expression of the constitutional freedom of speech in comment 7 permits others the freedom to ostracize for that post and similar comments.

Why doesn’t something like this happen to Noam Chomsky? Isn’t he a college professor? Or is he just about anti-American books nowadays?

You wish to see the guy fired for stating his opinions. Sounds like something I would read at DU.

Let’s not ignore the fact that a lot of the world’s internet scams, directed mostly at Americans, seem to emanate from Africa. So one has to wonder who are really stupid.

Nobel laureate and thief Jim Watson: "We only stole a woman's (sneer) data. So what. Women are not as intelligent as men."

His freedom of speech was removed by being suspended from the laboratory?

He’s free to say and hypothesize all he wants, from the comfort of his own home.

Thief?? The data was given to them by Maurice Wilkins and Max Perutz who were on Franklin’s committee, they didn’t steal it. Franklin would have shared the Nobel prize if she hadn’t died before it was awarded (making her ineligible.)

Oh gee. You’re free to say what you want but you’ll be fired for doing so.

Didn’t Rush get canned from his NFL gig for saying something innocuous about black quarterbacks?

No wonder the left is handing your asses to you.

Maybe.

Then again, look at the number of freepers who want to deport all Muslims in this country.
