Load of (*)(*)(*)(*)ing hogwash.
Is the "warrior gene" more predominant in blacks? Yes, according to at least one researcher.
But according to the same researcher, it is even more prevalent in the Chinese.
This is why racists shouldn't do "science". They make presumptions that aren't supported by any form of empirical data.

“Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit. Social Security is totally funded by the payroll tax levied on employers and employees. If you reduce the outgo of Social Security, that money would not go into the General Fund to reduce the deficit, that would go into the Social Security Trust Fund. So Social Security has nothing to do with balancing the budget or lowering the deficit.” –Ronald Reagan

IRANIANS SHOULD NOT DO Science , but Jews are OK wit it...
Here are some problems I have with your post.
1. The sample size of the study that showed that 14% of African-Americans have the allele was exceedingly small. 37 people? That is a terrible sample size. A drug company testing a drug on only 37 people would be laughed at.
2. Do the MAOA alleles appear in Africans with the same frequency as African-Americans? What is the frequency in other races like Asian?
3. I would have concluded that you actually believed this if it wasn't for the fact that you don't think that 14% of African-Americans are violent criminals, you think most are.
"Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man." - Bertrand Russell
The Iran never would be able to attack any country with nuclear weapons if the Iran had nucaler weapons. The USA, Russia, China and others had to destroy the Iran in this case - and because of the gigantic risk for the survival of all mankind we all had to do this very fast and very efficiently - what could mean that the Iran would be a nuclear hell after this hard and cruel attack of defense without any chance to find any identity again.
So: With nuclear weapons the Iran would not be in a better position in communication with any other nation and foreign culture in this world. Because it helps the Iran absolutelly nothing in the international relationships - so why are the governing "elites" of the Iran interested in unislamic nuclear weapon? Answer: This wrong "elites" like to have nuclear weapons because in case the government of the Iran is slaughtering the own people no one could help this people without taking the risk of a nuclear war - and this risk is always to high even if the whole population of the Iran woud be slaughtered. The mad iranian government and the "elites" of this mad political system could slaughter everyone in their own country and no one would be able to help.

So i spent 20 minutes googling this topic. My impression as I was reading this idiocy was, "There might be a corollary relationship, but certainly no causal relationship is proven."
I suspected early that there were some unethical scientific practices going on, only to have it confirmed with this:
"Its presence might predispose towards such behaviour but only in the context of a disadvantageous environment. To make the causal claim on the evidence of association alone is naïve. In this case, the naïvety is masked by the positive public stereotype of the cutting edge scientist reporting a breakthrough."
Then to top it all off the source blog cross referenced ITSELF to poorly analyze another study:
Source: "One study wrote that 6% of their non-white (but probably mostly African-American) male subjects had this allele."
Cross Reference: "http://theunsilencedscience.blogspot. com/2010/01/deus-ex-machina-genetics.html"
Original Study: "http://www.bnl.gov/medical/personnel/rita-goldstein/files/Fowler_BiolPsych07.pdf" Which is based on a study of only 38 subjects, 9 of which are classified as 'African American"
Basically this is an exercise in Quackery, which anyone with half a brain and no agenda can figure out on their own without a poorly researched blog.
