That is the title of that article, not my own. The article is pretty low on detail so I'm not sure if he was suggesting that on average black people have lower IQs or that all black people have lower intelligence. I'm also not sure about the real statistics, but if it is a true statement, should people not be saying it because it is such a sensitive issue, or do facts always trump feelings?
In an interview aired on US television earlier this month, James Watson — who won the Nobel in 1962 for his role in discovering DNA's double helix structure — said genes were responsible for a difference between black and white people on IQ tests.
