  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/feb/17/no-10-refuses-to-comment-on-pms-views-of-racial-iq) reduced by 77%. (I’m a bot)

    > Boris Johnson's spokesman has refused to say whether the prime minister thinks black people have lower IQs on average, or agrees with eugenics, after No 10 hired an adviser with highly controversial views.

    > "The prime minister's views are well publicised and well documented," the spokesman said more than 10 times, when asked to give Johnson's views on the intelligence of black people and eugenics, the study of methods to selectively breed people to improve the human race.

    > Ian Lavery, the Labour party chairman, said: "It is disgusting that not only has No 10 failed to condemn Andrew Sabisky's appalling comments but also seems to have endorsed the idea that white people are more intelligent than black people."Boris Johnson should have the backbone to make a statement in his own words on why he has made this appointment, whether he stands by it, and his own views on the subject of eugenics.
