Blacks Less Intelligent? (via ELLIOT LAKE News & Views)


Blacks Less Intelligent? By Idang Alibi Daily Trust (Abuja) A few days ago, the Nobel Laureate, Dr James Watson, made a remark that is now generating worldwide uproar, especially among the blacks. He said what to me looks like a self-evident truth. He told The Sunday Times of London in an interview that in his humble opinion, Black people are less intelligent than the White people. Since then, some of us cannot hear anything else but the outrage of black people who feel … Read More

    That’s quite an assumption to make, he is assuming all white people are smart or smarter. I have met a lot of people and races and not one race is smarter than the next. There are stupid whites just as there are stupid blacks no difference.

    Wayne, I think the point that many people will not even try to disprove his assumption through facts, because they are too “outraged” over it.

    The 79-year-old geneticist reopened the explosive debate about race and science in a newspaper interview in which he said Western policies towards African countries were wrongly based on an assumption that black people were as clever as their white counterparts when “testing” suggested the contrary. He claimed genes responsible for creating differences in human intelligence could be found within a decade.

    This is also suggesting Black Americans are less intelligent. The Ol’ Boy tried going through the back door on this one. Despite the written conclusion here about those Blacks in African countries it is still implying that Black Americans are less intelligent, I don’t buy it.

    I worked with Black Americans and they are no different from White Americans or Brown Americans. Intelligence has to do with the individual and their study skills. If the persons mother and father were good at studies so will there children be if they are taught. Some Blacks even in poverty were able to become professors of the sciences or have degrees.

    Not buying this one.

    That article implies Whites are more intelligent than other races, this is the same that they were teaching after the theory of evolution came into being, I sold a book on this which was written in the 1800’s and was a regular school text book in America, the book suggested skull shapes and such determined that Blacks were less intelligent as with other races.

    None of this is a proven fact. So what are they going to say that this article was written by a black man?

    This article is giving Whites more credit than they all deserve, the common White man or woman is not that intelligent at all, the majority of them are no different in intelligence than Blacks or Browns.
