Brilliant article, Bayo.
No punches pulled, actionable, visceral, feisty, perceptive and utterly readable! Kudos! Really admire the research and examples. And not only is Idris a Brit, he's a bonfaide Gooner.

My tuppence based on Angela Sahini's excellent "Superior": Race isn't real. There is no scientific consensus that it exists. Or how many there are. Or how to classify them. Racial categories we use are arbitrary. Moulded by social and cultural constructs. I genuinely think this book is the only origin story of our species we need. I reckon it makes a perfect science-backed companion article to your brilliant writing - so would really appreciate your feedback!
