Racist Nobel Prize winner turns out to be 16% black

The Times Online (click link for whole story) Reports…

JAMES WATSON, the DNA pioneer who claimed Africans are less intelligent than whites, has been found to have 16 times more genes of black origin than the average white European.

An analysis of his genome shows that 16% of his genes are likely to have come from a black ancestor of African descent. By contrast, most people of European descent would have no more than 1%.

The study was made possible when he allowed his genome – the map of all his genes – to be published on the internet in the interests of science.

“This level is what you would expect in someone who had a great-grandparent who was African,” said Kari Stefansson of deCODE Genetics, whose company carried out the analysis. “It was very surprising to get this result for Jim.”

Watson won the Nobel prize, with Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, after working out the structure of DNA in 1953. However, he provoked an outcry earlier this year when he suggested black people were genetically less intelligent than whites.

Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha Ha!!! Who is the dumb African now?

    we learned about them in biology class and their research was actually discovered by a woman. What we didn’t learn however was that they were racist!! Where was that in the history books?!!

    The irony of it all. Would this make James one of the first nobel prize winning negros? 🙂

    So, James can not be accused of being a racist when he claims that whites are on an average more intelligent than negroes.

    I guess a fact is a fact, no matter how much we wish that it was not true. That is what we call science.

    By the way, their research was not discovered by a woman. She saw in the microscope that there was a “spiral” in the cells.

    The two men started to discuss one evening what this “spiral” could be, then made a molecule model to explain what this spiral was made of, AND figured out what the spiral was. It was the DNA-spiral.

    I would say the right persons got the nobel-price.
