Science and bigotry

DNA pioneer makes racist remarks | The Australian It’s sad that men of science still try to push their own bigoted opinions ignoring available scientific evidence. What’s particularly sad about this scientist is he makes no distinction between genetics and enviornment (in this case educational opportunities) instead opting for a blatantly racist line of thought.

I shouldn’t be surprised. Many scientists have made ridiculous discriminatory assertions over the centuries in order to foist their personal bigotry and hate on others such as women, blacks, gays, and so on. It’s just truly said that supposedly well educated and otherwise well reasoned people act and think in such an unreasonable manner.
