Brilliant article, Tucker.
No punches pulled, actionable, visceral, feisty, perceptive, heartbreaking and utterly readable! I've ordered the book already as it had been on my TBR since 2020. Kudos! Your writing is so lucid, almost poetic!
As an Indian residing in Ireland for the last decade, I totally empathise with the author's frustrations & fear.
My tuppence based on Angela Saini's also 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!
