The roots of genetics, anthropology and indeed all the biological sciences are inextricably intertwined with the invention of racial taxonomies. These were designed to serve a political ideology. We have a pernicious history in that regard, but the trajectory of our history is worth celebrating, especially in the dismantling of the biological essentialism of race by contemporary genetics. Nevertheless, the legacy of historical scientific racism persists in our labs and language, and must be confronted in order to serve better representation and better science.
