I've always wondered why James Watson said what he did a while back in the article below: I even went out to find some information on intelligence and race, reread my biology notes, and I've found nothing correlating the different races with a set-average intelligence meter. Why would an accredited scientist who won a Nobel prize say something like that? Was it that his anger for a specific person caused him to commit a fallacy known as hasty generalization? Although he apologized, I think it was more of a forceful apology and that he still believes what he stated. Since the people here have more experience in Biology than I do currently, I wanted to discuss this as someone may point me into the right direction. It conflicts with the knowledge I've attained so far which is still fresh and the basics of biology.
