The Science of Racism

So my thoughts over the last month or so have been highly concentrated on the continuing evolution of humans. Because, as we all must admit, it is ridiculous to believe that (wo)man is any type of apex, any type of stopping point, any type of high point. Most of my ideas are influenced by Pierre Baldi at the moment as well as a myriad of past readings on the subject.

Now I'm not one to believe in synchronicity or any of that, but in the last two days AIDaily (aidaily.com) has published two articles on this general idea. I've listed them both below. One makes the argument for our differences, and in a way, that it is what makes us even more unique and amazingly human. The other one uses it as a basis for racism. It's funny how simple truths (truths?) can be used for both good and ill.
