Race is a bad fiction


THOUGHT I should post some resources for readers after yet another overseas race scandal of Dolezal proportions. (See my earlier post on this here).

First, there is some popular literature on the subject:

Newsweek’s There is no such thing as race

The Guardian’s Why racism is not backed up by science

Check out some books

Everyone is African – How Science Explodes the Myth of Race (Paperback) by Daniel J Fairbanks

A Dreadful Deceit – The Myth of Race from the Colonial Era to Obama’s America (Paperback) by Jacqueline Jones

The Myth of Race – The Troubling Persistence of an Unscientific Idea (Hardcover) by Robert Wald Sussman

The Myth of Race (Paperback) by Jefferson M. Fish

All books available via Loot or Amazon.

Or go ahead and read the scientific literature on the subject.
