… the nub of the story is that Dr. Watson was quoted in a British newspaper as saying that Africans are less intelligent than Europeans.
The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in the US suspended him, the Science Museum in London cancelled a talk he was scheduled to give. He’s gone home now without completing his book tour.
Regardless of whether you agree with the assertions attributed to him, should he or anyone else be allowed to make such comments? Or does race have to be removed from science’s research? Are there some beliefs about race which are simply intolerable and deserve disassociation and condemnation?
It’s worth adding that Dr. Watson says he doesn’t remember saying the comments. (BBC)
Scietists should be allowed to discover any aspect of human life; coz no one can stop that.
And of course, even acc to evolutionary theory, some races may be more intelligent than the other, if their predecessors were in the business which required mental skills. Some races are physically sturdier similarly.
However, this should by no means be applied to decide on individual cases.
