DNA Pioneer James Watson Continues to Speak the Truth About Race; Now Stripped of His Titles

James Watson

NINETY-YEAR-OLD Nobel Prize-winning scientist James Watson has been stripped of his honorary titles by a leading American research institution, after doubling down on his conclusions linking race and intelligence.

Despite nearly half a century service to the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), Watson, a world-renowned geneticist, lost all of his honorary titles of Chancellor Emeritus, Oliver R. Grace Professor Emeritus and Honorary Trustee, for refusing to retract his own scientific conclusions.

In 2007, Watson was suspended from all of his positions held at the New York lab following a scandal centering around his claim about the “inherently gloomy future of the African continent. “All our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours — whereas all the testing says not really,” he told the Times newspaper at the time.

While having initially issued an apology for his comments, allowing him to maintain his honorary titles at the CSHL, when asked more than a decade later whether his views about race and intelligence have changed, he told the PBS documentary they haven’t.

“Not at all. I would like for them to have changed, that there be new knowledge that says that your nurture is much more important than nature,” the scientist was quoted as saying in a recently previewed PBS documentary, titled American Masters: Decoding Watson. “There’s a difference on the average between blacks and whites on IQ tests. I would say the difference is, it’s genetic.”

CSHL alleged that Dr. Watson’s recent statements, which were consistent with his findings and his past statements, were “reprehensible.” After “unequivocally” rejecting Watson’s “unsubstantiated and reckless” opinions, the Laboratory stripped the 90-year-old scientist of all of his titles, calling Watson’s findings “prejudice.” [It is quite interesting that RT included some trenchant and witty racial-realist remarks in its reportage of the reactions to this outrageous mistreatment of one of our greatest scientific minds. — Ed.]

Watson rose to international scientific fame in 1953 after helping discover DNA’s double helix structure with fellow geneticists Maurice Wilkins and Francis Crick. In 1962, the team was awarded a Nobel Prize in Physiology “for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material.” In 1968 Watson began serving as director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, subsequently assuming the roles of president and chancellor, before being suspended and retiring from the research lab in 2007.

    Scorched earth. Only complete information supremacy will suffice. Get with the program goy. We are all the same. Critical mass is coming.

    Why did he “apologize” at his age? Is he so bright
    after all? TV preacher Billy Graham backed out of
    his comment with Nixon on the Jew problem. What
    is so wrong with these old people at their age they
    still have a need to “apologize?”

      His apology of more than a decade ago was pretty weak and didn’t satisfy the bloodthirsty haters, who forced him out of his own laboratory anyway. Many believed he hadn’t truly recanted. Now he has essentially un-apologized, so, as long as he sticks to his guns, he has regained his due share of honor.

        Apologies are like spilling blood in the presence of sharks. It drives them from just hunting around and into a feeding frenzy. When you’re right, never apologize.

        And when you’re called a “racist” by these same yahoos? Say “thank you!” There’s no shame in being for your own people either, quite the opposite really.

        But I might be preaching to the choir…

    Locating and re-publishing this and the piece on government-facilitated transgender brainwashing are such a credit to the NATIONAL ALLIANCE. These ought to motivate all but the most brain-dead of those professing concern with “Living White” yet supporting the opposite with volunteer debt-slavery and government-extorted taxes.

    Thank you, Vanessa

    This man Watson has scientific proof that the black race is not as intelligent as the white race and i definitely believe it. I see it every day. The world doesn’t want to hear the truth. And now with all the mixing of the races, the white race is becoming less intelligent too. This world is over as I know it. A sad situation for my grand children and theirs.

      There is no reason to give up. There are still hundreds of millions of White people on this planet, and a significant percentage would agree with us if only we could reach them. And we only need a million or so to make a revolution. Courage, courage, courage, and outreach, outreach, outreach should be our watchwords.

    This man is an atheist who sold his nobel prize to raise money for his research. He has been married to the same woman since 1968. One of his sons has schizophrenia.

    A man of dedication, sacrifice, honor and truth. I believe what he says.

      The MSM seemingly supported Mr. Watson with this article noting how investigators believe in a partial genetic link to intelligence: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/smart-parents-smart-kids/ , which states “Researchers didn’t ID any genes affecting IQ. But they estimated that they found a genetic influence that accounts for at least 40 percent to 50 percent of the differences on intelligence test scores in the 3,511 unrelated adults”. There’s this federally-sponsored study using the mother-child IQ relationship as a baseline when analyzing the prenatal effects of anti-epilepsy medications: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3114203/ , which states (highlites mine), ” In population-based studies, maternal IQ is the single greatest predictor of child IQ [17]. Maternal IQ reflects not only *genetic* influences, but also incorporates environmental factors affecting the child.” and, ” Because maternal IQ and [maternal] education are *independently* related to child cognitive outcome,…”. The ncbi statement “maternal IQ” is PC-speak for “maternal genetic IQ”. An article at https://www.newscientist.com/article/2163484-found-more-than-500-genes-that-are-linked-to-intelligence/ states, “It is thought that around 50 to 80 per cent of variation in general intelligence between people is down to genetics. ” So since IQ is largely genetic, then wouldn’t racial trends in IQ scores also be? The liberal’s answer is simple and effective, for now: In the absence of locating specific intelligence-effecting genes with a racial correlation attributed to them, there is no definitive proof of a genetic cause to the average lower IQ in certain racial groups, therefore racism or cultural bias, poverty and school overcrowding *must* be the evils that are reducing the environmental component to their IQ, justifying equality’s totalitarian ethos. It bypasses the potential of actually helping those groups (and society) through genetic counseling and testing, lest eugenics raise its ugly head. Mr. Watson knew all this going in, and his latest statement is too sweeping in its conclusion for modern genetics to support – for now.

        I would be very surprised if any instinct, tropism, or mental quality of human beings is less than 90 per cent. genetic, even if that can’t be rigorously proven — yet. And I believe it is certain that all — 100 per cent. — of the potential for good or great or ill in us is genetically determined, and that the averages of such potentials differ by race. That potential can be stifled by environmental factors, of course, but it can never be induced when it is absent genetically. An apple-tree seedling can be made wan and sickly and small if it is kept out of the sunlight and seldom watered. But even if you plant it in the most ideal spot imaginable, it will never grow into a sequoia. You can maim or kill a mouse with a hammer. But no matter how assiduously you avoid hammering it, it will never become James Watson.

    Erase the names of the Thought Criminals, rewrite every story and poem, change the past to suit the needs of powerful and organized evil in the present. We must punish the vile “hater” who offended the kosher orthodoxy. Your scientific conclusions, based on a lifetime of study and achievement, are wrong. All the races are the same (Whites are bad, jews are g*d’s chosen). There are no intelligence differences. We have always been at war with Eastasia. -Modern Heretic
