If you think of yourself as inferior, you will behave as if you are inferior.

No, of course not. "Genetic inferiority" of races is not supported by science.

But that doesn't mean I agree with trashing Einstein. The BS he wrote in his diary does not negate his status as one of humanity's great thinkers.

It is all about belief.

If you don't believe in yourself, you gave up without even starting.

There are plenty of Indians that have accomplished great things.

They didn't do those things by having a mindset of them being inferior..

You can dwell on the positive or negative.
That choice is up to you..

A) What does that even mean? B) Humanity isn't actually that genetically diverse, race is more of a social construct than indicative of anything.

In what regard? Are Indians biologically less adaptive to their environment? Because I don't see otherwise how they could be genetically inferior.
On the other hand India is an interesting mix, in part it's a developed and a culturally rich nation in other parts it's deplorable.

Even Einstein was human, which means he was wrong from time to time. This is one of them.

Either Einstein got it wrong or, ... sit down for a shocker, or maybe it's been misreported / taken out of context. He also said this -

Interesting and of course, I looked it up. Looks like Einstein believed the environment for Indians wasn’t very stimulating to their imaginations and left them caught up thinking in a box.

I’m an Indian and I believe ‘No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.’’- Eleanor Roosevelt.

[msn.com...]
“[Einstein] also believes that 'the climate prevents them from thinking backward or forward by more than a quarter of an hour', an attitude that reveals both Einstein's belief in geographical determinism and in the Indians' alleged intellectual inferiority," Rosenkranz writes.

No, I do not think race dictates genetic inferiority / superiority and honestly, I'm not even sure that "Indian" is a race.

That statement is meaningless. Besides being meaningless, it was made at a time when nobody knew anything about genetics, and even now when we know more it would still be meaningless.

It is very common for people who earn fame in one field to assume that their opinion in another field is also worth something. Entertainers do it a lot, but the people who carry it to extremes are the politicians.
