The struggle continues....

It never ceases to amaze me how the argument that people of African decent are still seen as less intellectually capable as those of European decent.

James Watson, a Nobel Prize winner for his part in the unraveling of DNA who now runs one of America's leading scientific research institutions was attempting to get back on the road to spout his racists beliefs, again. I'm incline to think that Watson's reason to revive his postulation at this time is fueled by Barack Obama's popular presidential candidacy. I don't think Watson's actions are coincidental. Unfortunately, I fear that for those whites (or even black folks) who may be on the proverbial "fence"about Obama, Watson's scholastic venom may be just enough to push them into another political camp.
