James Watson needs to get out more

Apparently 79-year-old Nobel Prize winner James Watson (co-discoverer of the double-helix structure of DNA) doesn't get out much.

He's spent too much time locked up in the lab with white scientists. He hasn't met a scientific sampling of blacks.

He seems to think you have to be smart to be successful, and you have to be white to be smart.

I know lots of successful people who are as simple as celery.

And lots of white people who are puzzled from morning until night, decade after decade.

Recently I read an article about how shrinking frontal lobes cause people to lose their inhibitions as they get older, resulting in a rise in racist language. I'm guessing that's what's happening to Mr. Watson.
