Statement by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Board of Trustees and President Bruce Stillman, Ph.D. Regarding Dr. Watson’s Comments in The Sunday Times on October 14, 2007
Earlier this evening, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Board of Trustees decided to suspend the administrative responsibilities of Chancellor James D. Watson, Ph.D., pending further deliberation by the Board.
This action follows the Board’s public statement yesterday disagreeing with the comments attributed to Dr. Watson in the October 14, 2007 edition of The Sunday Times U.K.
Watson: Black IQ less than or equal to White IQ.
CSH: We are the smartest whites and our IQ is zero.
IQ is greater than or equal to zero
Therefore all human IQ is zero.
The CSH Nihil IQ Argument. Note that Watson is a lab employee. So its all in the laboratory.
For shorter space in a quotation, we can restate this as follows. Watson: Whites are smarter than blacks. CSH: We are the smartest whites, and our IQ is zero. Therefore all human IQ is zero. CSHL might be considered White IQ Zeroists.
