postdarwinist…//Richard Lewontin: Race Science for the People | Portside

Lewontin has also a post-Darwinist, but he was to scared to really say so in public.

“The apparent homogeneity within races as compared to the ‘obvious’ difference between them stems partly from the fact that our consciousness of racial differences is constantly being reinforced socially because racial distinctions serve economic and political ends.”—Richard Lewontin, The Genetic Basis of Evolutionary Change, 1974. Pg. 152.
