In his Sunday Times interview, Dr James Watson was quoted as saying
he was "inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa" because "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 was further quoted as saying that his hope was that everyone was
equal but that "people who have to deal with black employees find
this is not true".

Just disgusting, racist, horrible...
