Nobel Prize winning DNA pioneer Watson stripped of his titles for claiming black people are less intelligent

Dr James Watson, 1962 Nobel Prize winner
for his co-discovery of the DNA double helix.

A scientist who won the Nobel Prize for his work on DNA has been stripped of honorary titles over his ‘racist’ theories on genetics. James Watson, who shared his prize for his work at Cambridge with Francis Crick, has repeated his claim that black people are inherently less intelligent.

The American biologist, 90, said in a TV documentary shown this month that he stood by his views that ‘all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – where all the testing says not really’.

He claimed the differences in intelligence between black and white people was borne out by their average scores in IQ tests. In his original remarks to a magazine in 2007, Dr Watson had added that while he hoped everyone was equal, ‘people who have to deal with black employees find this is not true’.

LD: See this author’s 2012 article, World IQ Figures: A Complete Chart with Notes and Comments, based on research done by one of the world foremost IQ experts, Dr Richard Lynn.

Last week Dr Watson was removed from three honorary positions at the New York lab where he spent most of his career. The board of trustees at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island described the views of Dr Watson as “reprehensible”.

He and British biologist Dr Crick were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962 for their discovery nine years earlier of the double helix structure of DNA, the molecules that carry all the genetic information determining how we grow, function and reproduce. The breakthrough was key to understanding the body’s genetic code.

In February 1953, a jubilant Dr Crick walked into The Eagle pub in Cambridge, the local for scientists at the University’s Cavendish Laboratory, and proclaimed he and Dr Watson had ‘found the secret of life’.


LD:  The unsung genius in the race to discover the DNA structure is the figure on the far left, Rosalind Franklin. Franklin and her colleague Maurice Wilkins were working on DNA in an entirely different lab from Watson and Crick. The two groups were working in competition to see who could crack the code first, with Franklin and Wilkins nearer to finding the secret of life than Watson and Crick. At some point Wilkins, without Franklin’s permission, passed on their joint data to Watson and Crick, in effect betraying their secret findings to the rival researchers. Franklin, who had done most of the hard work on the DNA structure, was appalled at this betrayal. When Watson and Crick finally won the race and bagged the Nobel Prize in 1962, Rosalind Franklin’s vitally important contributions were not recognised. [LD]  

In a statement, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory said it ‘unequivocally rejects the unsubstantiated and reckless personal opinions Dr Watson expressed on the subject of ethnicity and genetics’. It said it was revoking his titles as chancellor emeritus, professor emeritus and honorary trustee.

The lab added: ‘Dr Watson’s statements are reprehensible, unsupported by science, and in no way represent the views of CSHL, its trustees, faculty, staff, or students. The laboratory condemns the misuse of science to justify prejudice.’

Dr Watson’s son Rufus said his father, who is in a nursing home following a car crash in October, was being made out to be a bigot, which was untrue. ‘They just represent his rather narrow interpretation of genetic destiny,’ he said.

  1. I was in high school in the mid 1970’s when I first heard about the famous Dr’s. Watson and Crick in biology class. Learning about DNA of course. It’s amazing he’s still around, even more amazing that they could do this to him and he had to sell his Nobel Prize Medal for the money.

    I just read the comment about Dr. Franklin and Dr. Wilkins. I was not aware of that.

    1. I am reliably informed that a Russian billionaire bought the good doctor’s Nobel Prize Medal and promptly returned it to its rightful owner…

    2. Francis Crick was a physicist. I attended a talk he gave; nice man. I believe that Rosalind Franklin died before the Nobel prizes were declared, and they are not awarded posthumously, so the lady was not cheated. Her collaboraor in London, Wilkins, was awarded the Nobel prize together with Crick and Watson.

      The crystallography X-rays were the work of Wilkins and Franklin. That is how science works. Information is not held back.

      Crick and Watson used the X-rays in the old Cavendish Laboratory and came up with the double helix, brilliant.

      1. Regarding intelligence, how do you define it? “Jeopardy” tests memory, not intelligence.

        I find that most ordinary working people are smarter than they give themselves credit for. A good carpenter solves problems every day.

  2. Noble prize – A prize, taken over by Jews, awarded to those doing critical work that benefits Jews. Peace Prize? Look at the murdering, psychopathic warmongers awarded this prize by the Jew masters of phony ceremony.

    Elite Jews don’t believe in these types of aggrandizing awards, as beginning to end, (((they))) know these are merely gold-plated shit. However, Jews know very well how much stock the gullible goyim put in such ceremonial claptrap; in the same manner goyim put great stock in titles like “sir,” “lord” and “Phd.” That is why there is an almost endless list of Jew prizes and titles for just about every conceivable category. Look at how many Non-Jews have been awarded titles of English nobility over the last fifty years. Then put these names beside Jews given such titles – by other titled Jews of course.

    The Title of Nobility Clause is a provision in Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution, that prohibits the federal government from granting titles of nobility, and restricts members of the government from receiving gifts, emoluments, offices or titles from foreign states and monarchies without the consent of the United States Congress. Also known as the Emoluments Clause, it was designed to shield the republican character of the United States against so-called “corrupting foreign influences.” This shield is reinforced by the corresponding prohibition on state titles of nobility in Article I, Section 10, and more generally by the Republican Guarantee Clause in Article IV, Section 4.

    Gorsh Mickey, ya think the founders were on to something? Like mebbe Jewish perfidy?

    The Titles of Nobility Amendment is a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution. The 11th Congress passed it on May 1, 1810, and submitted to the state legislatures for ratification. It would strip United States citizenship from any citizen who accepted a title of nobility from an “emperor, king, prince or foreign power.” On two occasions between 1812 and 1816, it was within two states of the number needed to become part of the Constitution. Congress did not set a time limit for its ratification, so the amendment is still pending before the states. Ratification by an additional 26 states is now needed for its adoption.

    Fat chance of this amendment ever being ratified with Jews running America.

    Every one of these prizes and titles are maintained to provide Jewish recognition for work furthering the Jews’ agenda. When these titles and prizes are awarded to Jews, and all too frequently they are, they serve to provide “proof” to stupid goyim how “brilliant” and “hard working” Jews really are at their Tikkun Olam efforts, making the world better – for Jews of course. Few, very few, notice how Jews steal or forge the work of others and then take the credit for themselves. Like Einstein stealing the famed concept of E=mc2 from the Italian industrialist Olinto de Pretto.

    This thoroughly Jewed trait of stealing the ideas and work of others is then projected unto intelligent, hard working goy whom Jews hate. Thomas Edison is but one of many such examples of Jews projecting one of their most horrid, criminal traits on the white man. As is typical with common thieves, Jews stay awake at night in fear that someone might steal their lousy, corrupt ideas. That is why you have to endure those dire FBI threats of criminal prosecution for rooting though the Jews’ Hollywood dumpster and copying their half-baked, cinema horror. Gasp! The horror of it all! Stealing Jew garbage from Jew thieves, a monumental crime against gawd, it’z!

    Self respecting whites should applaud the day when Lord Jew taketh away their phony prize that Lord Jew gavith them in the first place. How refreshing it would be to hear people saying, “Prize? Award? Who wants that phony Jew crap anyway? I don’t need it and I don’t want it. Take your lousy Jew prize and shove it up your shiny, sheeny tuchas.” But of course, that won’t happen.

    To paraphrase Adolf Hitler, Anyone that has not had their Jew prize revoked has not made profitable use of their work…”

    1. Barack Hussein Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Ironic, since Nobel invented dynamite. But, that’s beside the point. The fact that Barry Hussein received it should give Watson solace in knowing that he no longer is remotely associated with the biggest fraud perpetrated on the American public.

      Geil Lundestad, director at the institute for 25 years, said in his just-published memoir that he and the committee had unanimously decided to grant the award to Barry Hussein just after his election in 2009 more in hopes of aiding the American president to achieve his goals on nuclear disarmament, rather than in recognition of what Barry Hussein had already accomplished.

      It was to grease the American public’s’ wheels in accepting this fraud as the *installed* POTUS.

      LOL…sort of like “Pass the (Obamacare) bill and read it later.”

    1. Hola fellow Darkmooners.
      Intelligence is overrated. It’s an abstract and difficult to define. It’s impossible to assign a # to “intelligence”. Throughout life Donaldo has witnessed that success is most often achieved by discipline and motivation. Very few people actually utilize higher intelligence in their everyday lives. Just a thought from Donaldo from a lonely Louisiana truckstop.

      1. @ Donaldo

        I agree that intelligence is overrated, and that _drive_ is more important than intelligence for accomplishment to happen.

        At the same time, what makes the White man special, in my opinion, is _creativity_, which is something different from both intelligence and _drive_.

      2. @ Donaldo Colina

        The reality is that IQ is overrated and intelligence is an unknown to “science” and ed-Jew-cation.

        IQ can only measure exposure and retention/memory of that exposure. Those who can spew back the BS they are exposed to have “high IQ.”

        Intelligence is an unknown to science and ed-Jew-cation because it is tied to the creator of all things, The Father, if the string is pulled to its end. Science and ed-Jew-cation are based on an accidental beginning so intelligence is unknown which results in an IQ. Real intelligence is responding to the nudges from The Father that we all get instead of ignoring them.

  3. Why are the less knowledgeable able to credibly critique the more knowledgeable Dr. Watson? I believe Dr. Watson.

  4. A long time ago, nearly 40 years ago, I lived in a wooden hut built on the back of an old Ford pick-up truck parked on the lot of a Black mechanic. I would get free parking for my truck in exchange for running the thieves out of the lot at night. Every day at 5 o’clock a number of Black mechanics would gather in the office of this place for a happy hour, and I would always be invited. I got to know these Black men very well, and I retain fond memories of them.

    Times have changed since then. In 2016 when Trump was running for President I encountered hatred of White people for the first time in my life. I had encountered such hatred of Whites in Blacks, for it is a remnant from slavery, but never before had I encountered it in such a big way, and not only in Blacks but in all “people of color.”

    Racial segregation may have been a blessing to American Blacks. Why? Because it limited the harm they could do to White society, and therefore limited the impetus in Whites to ship them back to Africa.

      1. Carlos, the Swami once summed it up in one short all encompassimg sentence, back in the early 70’s.
        He makes it seem so easy to realize the nature of truth itself.
        I guess this is because he really is a Swami..

        “You brought them out of the jungle to live with you and now you’re afraid of them” (lol)

  5. Shockley, a big man in Physics who invented the transistor, also made the claim that Black intelligence was not equal to that of the White, and that this was hereditary and that social conditions would not change it. I wonder if Watkins was influenced by Shockley.

    In any case the statement that Watkin’s opinion was “reprehensible” is a good example of the vibes of the Jewish mind. This extreme self-righteousness is Jewish in essence. Such moral condemnation is not natural to humans. The Jews gave rise to it with their “worship of idols” stuff, by which they condemned to death people with non-Jewish values.

      1. @ Sardonicus

        You’re right. My logic is my strength, not my language skill. But I shouldn’t have made that mistake.

        1. Kendra,

          I was just ribbing you. I make mistakes like that all the time. You are one of the best posters here. In a class of your own. I mean that.

          Since you have made a pertinent comment about “logic”, I need to tell you that I agree with people like Brownhawk and Donaldo Collina who point out that logic and even high IQ can be overrated. Intuition and inspired guesswork play a far greater part in arriving at startling truths than logic and common sense. But I guess you already know that.

          The Indian mystical poet Rabindranath Tagore said, “A mind all logic is like a knife all blade.”

          Perhaps the best quote on the limitations of logic comes from Niels Bohr, pioneer of quantum physics:

          “No, no, you’re not thinking; you’re just being logical.”

          Priceless! That really does cut logic down to size.

          BTW, I got those quotes from LD.

  6. Of course, in the present dispensation, all peoples are equal in IQ intelligence. That is, all except the (((tribe)). How can anyone know this? Just ask them. In point of fact, I believe Richard Lynn said something about the IQ of the average Israeli is highly overrated not including the Arab Israeli citizen. How can anyone know anything about the mind of the European? Very simple, listen to their classical music from the last 500 years.

  7. Hi Sard,
    Where is lifes journey taking you? May Donaldo suggest something? The next time you have a chance, look into a 🌟 lit sky and contemplate the millions of years the light traveled just to touch your face……….no “intelligence” required. 😘

    1. Donaldo,

      I was only pulling your leg. I was speaking “sardonically”. You are a self-confessed Jew, so your intelligence would have to be higher than average.

  8. There is one thing clear in my mind, such as it is. I don’t know what the average IQ of he English in the 13 American colonies was, including a handful of other NW Europeans, but the IQ’s of the founding fathers must have been through the roof, especially the IQ of Tom Jefferson. Another thing is clear: As Dr. Elmer Pendell proved in his book “Why Civilizations Self-Destruct” from early times to the present, the high IQ cultural bearing stock and creators of Empires and Civilizations, will disappear over time, because they will not or do not replace themselves as their cultural creation turns to dust as the low IQ rabble proliferate.
    Isn’t this exactly what is happening to the White race in Europe and around the World including America right now.
    Also, the high IQ Japanese and Chinese have got themselves in a fix. The Japanese refuse to have kids even with about equal numbers of male and female. The Chinese on the other hand have millions of males with no corresponding number of females. (Through the years the Chinese killed or aborted millions of the baby girls).
    The bottom line here is that a population can decrease just as fast as it can decrease as fewer and fewer females enter into their child bearing years. It goes without saying, one man can knock up a thousand females in nine months, while it takes 9 months for one female to birth a child. The US is in further do-do as it has aborted around 70 millions babies since Roe vs Wade (1973). That is why America has imported millions of third world breeders to fill the vacuum created by the abortion industry. Many of the third world and native low IQ breeders will go on welfare thus putting more pressure, on whats left of the cultural bearing taxpaying stock, to have fewer and even no children.
    Dr. Elmer Pendell
    Giant intellects like Gibbon, Spengler and Toynbee have given us complex and tortuous reasons for the decline of civilizations. Dr. Pendell presents us with a simple one. Civilizations fall because the less capable slice of the population regularly out-breeds the more capable. In pre-civilized times nature weeds out the unfit and eventually produces a superior variety of men whose intelligence and industriousness are channeled into constructing an advanced social order that defeats nature’s best-laid plans by protecting instead of eliminating the unfit. The out-come is that in several generations the protected outnumber the protectors.
    Dr. Pendell scours the annals of history to prove his point, after beginning his seminal study with a remarkable analysis of the inborn, polarized egotistic and altruistic drives which are the biological basis for both the building and un-building of civilizations.
    Most importantly, Dr. Pendell offers us ways and means to stop the historic and hitherto unstoppable processes of social entropy. One of his most intriguing-and most controversial-remedies is a genetically oriented marriage law to raise the birthrate of our better human specimens and substantially lower the proliferation rate of the civilization-destroying people who can neither provide for themselves nor their offspring.
    (Good luck with that as in the Western World the better specimens are punished by the commies in control while the cultural destroyers are rewarded by the likes of the commies recently elected to the US Congress.)

  9. roughly 2,000,000 cells fit on the head of a pin, each with smaller nucleus, inside each of which there are 6 feet of dna coil… that’s 12,000,000 feet or 2,272 miles of dna on the head of a pin…
    the stuff is a lot finer than frog hair…
    i didn’t see anything in this article explaining just how someone can tell from looking at dna whether one person is more intelligent than another… i’d like to know, before i take it to heart…
    it is ok if it can be done, because iq tests don’t really prove a damn thing about how ‘smart’ someone is, much less do they indicate how ‘good’, which is far more important…..
    whatever the case – the fact is that in advanced countries like the usa the birth rate always goes down..
    it’s a sure sign the people there are smarter…
    this however is not seen to be in the interest of corporations and religions, which always want more and more people and are now co-conspirators in the great immigrant invasion of white europe and the usa…
    because they’re really in the exploitation business…
    and we know religion has blocked and stalled science in plenty of cases…
    ideally, the human population of the earth declines until all ecosystems have been restored to their natural state, as it was 2000 years ago, or at least prior to the industrial revolution…
    that’s what a really smart person thinks..
    arch – so true… i wonder what genuine prizes are out there?

  10. Hans Eysenck had a lot of trouble for saying much the same things about IQ and race. I’m just not sure how much there is bias by design, inadvertently, by those who invented IQ testing and whether it can really be universally applied. Try dropping a high IQ white person in the middle of the jungle and see if he may not in fact be more stupid than a low IQ native, if he can’t survive as long. The IQ may not be influenced by environmental factors but it may correspond to a different environment than true inborn intelligence, i.e. it was designed for assessing ability in a numerate, literate, modern type civilisation.

  11. I also think that
    Haiku is overrated
    cause I can’t do ’em.

    Oh IQ! Sorry, grasped the wrong end of the shtick there 😉

  12. The opinion of dr. Watson is a gift for the juice as it gives them the possibility to pretend of being ” social justice warriors ” of dark people, of “minorities”.

  13. Here’s an oldie but goodie:

    “Press on
    Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
    Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
    Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
    Persistence & determination alone are omnipotent.”

    1. Persistance and determination is common for the average people, the workers, as it is people with genius who can create, new things, solutions, inventions for average people

  14. If you read George Washington’s speeches and comments, you will get the idea how intelligent the man was.. he could literate several thoughts interactively through one sentence, combined to logicize his conclusion… he was smart and tough, a good combination…
    A few more years of the cell phone and vaccine idiot culture and there might not be anybody left who can even follow him…
    Fwiw, I believe John quincy Adams was the highest iq president, somewhere around 190? Though I didn’t know they had iq tests in those days.
    Mine is higher than average, but I’m often accusing myself out loud of being retarded…
    My guess – awareness has got a lot more to do with a person’s ability to project his consciousness across time, call it intuition or whatever.
    the leader is the person in the crowd who knows what’s happening next, before anyone else does.
    I would draft high iq players on my football team..
    A memory is not necessarily a file stored in a circuit in your gray matter, nor obviously is an intuition… when you’re remembering something, you may be visiting the Akasha..
    Also, since everything is made of light, the brain bieng not just an electro-chemical reactor, indeed the whole body, but actually a photon computer, i wonder if the skin pigments, which are blocking photons, that is, reflecting light rather than absorbing it, are not adversely affecting darker people’s supply of the material necessary to think and talk like big George…
    The color black is the combination of all visible light, which means blacks do not absorb it, whereas white people show no reflected aggregate of colors on the outside…

  15. persistence, yes..
    but persistence comes after determination..
    you have to be inspired with what it is you want…
    if you didn’t really want it, the no wonder you were not persistent..
    the question is – how to lower your resistance to inspiration?

    1. A perfect case in point from the world of competitive sports is Tom Brady. A man who truly loves the game of football (which inspires him, and in turn the players he leads) and is driven in being determined to excel at it through persistence. Combine that with developing a high football IQ while receiving the best coaching in the history of the game and you see the results – triumph of the will.

    Music to sing by –

  17. Blaming by association is a common theme in our human double-speak.

    We must reinforce our personal prejudices whenever possible:

    Examples — Almost look like strawmen, but I’m afraid prejudices come in many “colors” (pun intended):

    1)The Black people I’ve met are culturally different, so black people must be stupid.
    2)Religions cause the delaying of scientific advancement, so religious people are stupid.

    Religion comes from the Latin “Religare”, which means ‘to choose back [anything]’. Theistic believers, agnostics and atheists alike choose back to what they feel comfortable with. But, personally, I’ve seen fanaticism from every part of the spectrum, so I see why antithetical ideologues tend to be so prejudicial with each other without paying attention to the phenomena in hand. I believe many religious people, agnostics and atheists alike are just vocal and wrong in their self-validating fundamentalism.

    Simultaneously, I’m afraid that scientific materialism is a rather opaque proposition to understand the nature of the observable and un-observable.

    Regarding the racial prejudice, many racist people have the tendency of confusing racial realism from racism, in such a way that becomes a silly will to power, that in consequence, leads them to even kill their light-skinned or fair-skinned fellows, pretty much like a sort of fundamentalist war against any small amicable dissent.

    Watson is still a racist and someone who took Franklin’s ideas and posted them as his, so stripping his titles is a good move. Karma is paid in life. Linus Pauling was close to it as well, but he earned 2 nobel prizes already, so why bother?

    The dogmatism in academia is never ending now that many people keep having such narrow views of the universe by power differentials and mindless rote indoctrination.

    There are many people here who’s writing here looks to the likes of a psychopath, and if they see me in person and live the will to power, no doubt they’d like to kill me. In the same way Watson would love to see all Blacks/Hispanics dead, in the same way Dawkins/Coyne/Atkins would like to see theists/agnostics dead. So much for racism and religions and believeing only SJWs and Ortodox Religious people may become fanatics?
