On the day Dr. James Watson proclaimed that Africans had lower intelligence, African-American sisters Karah, Safiya, and Diana Cesar had him sign a copy of his book, Avoid Boring People. Now the sisters have put that signed copy up on eBay at a starting bid of $300. The auction ends on October 31st at 7:29 PDT.
Safiya, 17, a senior at Cold Spring Harbor High School:
He signed our book and we’re African-Americans. With all the hype still up, we thought it might be valuable to someone.
Twin sister Karah ina letter to Dr. Watson:
This incident has taught me a lesson that may not be in your book. No matter how venerable you are, you are still human.
James Watson apparently lives just 10 minutes from from the Cesar girls.
