A few months ago I read an article about a field called Forensic Anthropology. Apparently, forensic anthropology have a 90% success rates in determining the race of people from skulls.

What was fascinating to me was the article in essence told these anthropologists to stop doing that as they were creating a body of evidence that contradicted the notion of races as a social construct.

Thoughts anyone?

Would you consider doing a countercritical piece on a Troublesome Inheritance? Wikipedia is adamant that experts say it's fallacious, which I doubt. I've seen a few arguments that didn't make any sense like denying the objectivity of k means clustering, but I'm not an expert.
