Human Genetics Needs an Antiracism Plan

Human Genetics Needs an Antiracism Plan

The study of human genetics emerged from a deep curiosity of our human inheritance that was firmly rooted in white supremacy. In this moment, we are presented with an opportunity to adopt a true culture change—one of antiracism—in the field of human genetics. Even if we are not to blame for these ideas, as members of the human genetics field, we can take responsibility for them. Human genetics is not strictly a biological science, it is also a social science, and we ignore other social sciences to our peril. Human genetics needs an antiracism plan now, otherwise, we must admit we plan to be racist.
