“The Idea of Race is Fallacious in a Scientific Sense” – Gavin Evans, Author of Black Brain White Brain (Video)

Black Brain, White BrainGavin Evans was recently interviewed by Jennifer Sanasie for News24 about his book Black Brain, White Brain: Is Intelligence Skin Deep?

In the video, Evans explains why the concept of race is scientifically “fallacious.” He says, “race is at most a convenient shorthand description, but really it has no scientific basis.”

The genetic difference within a race group is often much greater than the variance between race groups, and race refers to superficial characteristics that have no bearing on the genes that predict intelligence.
