DNA pioneer James Watson is blacker than he thought.

From the December 9, 2007 Sunday Times:

The genome of James Watson

And from the October, 2007 interview in The Sunday Times:
He [James Watson] says that he is “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”, and I know that this “hot potato” is going to be difficult to address. His hope is that everyone is equal, but he counters that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”.
