    Huh? Race is biological.

    I already knew that some scientists want to study more Black people so they can tailor medicines for them.

    Yeah, I think "race isn't biological" is becoming increasingly absurd with the advance of genetics. It is too difficult to reconcile that belief with the genetic realities reinforcing the significance of race. Racial diversity really would serve genome-wide association studies, because race is a social construct rooted in biology. With only whites participating, you would learn a lot of about the genetic variants common among whites, and the genetic variants more common among non-whites would remain in the black box.

    race as a social construct is a believe of philosophers, sociologists, and other ideology driven retards incapable to do simple mathematics.

    You can't define people by how they look. How a person looks doesn't necessarily correlate to genetics/ancestry or ability.

    Plus those are two different reports by two different reporters.
