Brilliant article, Jay.

No punches pulled, actionable, visceral, feisty, perceptive and utterly readable! Kudos! Really admire the personal examples you write about. Bookmarking this for future referral - so much to soak in! As an Indian residing in Ireland for the last decade, I can attest to this burden of being a "good Indian".

My tuppence based on Angela Saini'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 and arguments on my assertions.
