there was an earlier winner, william shockley, of transistor fame, who humiliated himself with his views on the superiority of whites.
now here comes watson of DNA fame.
clearly amartya sen falls into this category of idiot nobel prize winners who should keep their mouths shut on subjects outside their immediate areas.
although come to think of it, watson does deal with genetics and so strictly speaking race is not outside the purview of his area.
but history is clearly outside the purview of amartya sen, whose economics has also been shown to be suspect. his famed 'kerala model' is rank nonsense.
