with Paul Ehrlich, Jeffrey Schloss, Lionel Tigervia Uncommon Knowledge
Friday, June 1, 2001

Behavioral scientists have begun to argue that the findings of evolutionary science should have legal, political, and moral consequences.

And if reparations are a good idea, who should receive them, all African Americans or just those descended from slaves?
