This is just messed up

I don't know what to make of this. But my first response is: whacked out racist fantasy heavily influenced by the original Willie Wonka film (the one with Gene Wilder, not the one with Johnny Depp doing Michael Jackson-as-Wonka).

Unfortunately the 'underclass' look in a larger size is pretty common in the Gulag. . . large ubermenschen are just not seen around here. I don't think either specimen looks normal or attractive.

I did some search on Mr Curry... he got his PhD last year and the photo shows he's quite young as well, so he might (at least subconsciously) want to be famous and favours controversial conclusions.
Anyway, here is a very nice article about the value of such theories
(see also first and third part of the series).

It may be too early to tell, but I'm pretty sure Oliver Curry just earned himself a spot on this list:

Steve Jones dealt with Oliver Curry pretty summarily on Radio 4 yesterday - and if anyone knows what he's talking about when it comes to evolutionary theory it's Jones.

The words "self-publciser", "self-publiciser" and "self-publiciser" come to mind.
