The Anti-Racist Democratic Genome?
The opening decade of this millennium witnessed genome scientists, policy makers, critical race theorists and world leaders proclaiming the anti-racist democratic potential of human genomics. These views stand in stark contrast to the 1990s concern that genomics might create new forms of racism. Jenny Reardon (Science & Justice Research Center, UC, Santa Cruz) explores this shift, both why it happened and what it reveals about emerging challenges for understanding issues of race and racism in the genomic age.
