Forensics of Race

Just came across this snapshot of an exhibit panel from the Science Museum of Minnesota’s exhibit on race.

One thought on “Forensics of Race

  1. Hehehe. That’s why when I see reports on human remains that claim something like “white male” I just roll my eyes and groan – the “male” part is easy to determine (for adolescent and adult specimens anyway) from a good specimen of the pelvic girdle but any pronouncements of white/red/pinko/yellow/black/brown is nonsense.
