From Evelyn Haskins:

Re: Nobel scientist suspended from job over race comments (Oct. 18): Watson may or may not be racist.

But his comment shows his utter ignorance!

I would hazard a guess that Watson himself would do very, very poorly on an intelligence test devised by Africans based on THEIR cultural traditions and environment

Should he have beed sacked? I don’t think so, because he field is NOT education, intelligence, social science, psychology, neurology or nutrition.

But I do think he should be censured. And required to get at least a basic education in these above sciences.

And then advised to keep his mouth shut about things he knows nothing about!
