You can’t make stuff like this up. Nobel prize winning white scientist James Watson who claimed that black Africans were less intelligent than whites, according to the Independent,
has a DNA profile with up to 16 times more genes of black origin than the average white European.
An analysis of the genome of James Watson showed that 16 per cent of his genes were likely to have come from a black ancestor of African descent. By contrast, most people of European descent would have no more than 1 per cent.
16 Times more black genes. Hmmm.
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.
I’ll bet Jim was even more suprised. To make it even more interesting, James Watson (along with Francis Crick, and Maurice Wilkins) won the nobel prize for discovering the double helix structure of DNA.
Watson apologized for his remarks about blacks in October.
