>End of the day both both sides of the argument have evidence.

No they don't. One side has one crappy study from 1972. Here's a list of sources supporting the other side:

Humans can be genetically categorized into five racial groups, corresponding to traditional races. Source:

Genetic analysis “supports the traditional racial groups classification.” Source:

“Human genetic variation is geographically structured” and corresponds with race. Source:

Race can be determined via genetics with certainty for >99.8% of individuals. Source:

Oral bacteria can be used to determine race. Source:

Race can be determined via brain scans. Source:

96-97% of Whites have no African ancestry. Source:

97% of Whites have no Black ancestry whatsoever. Source:

There was minimal gene flow between archaic Europeans and Asians. Source:

Common-sense racial categories have biological meaning. Source:

A substantial amount of the human genome has been subjected to natural selection since the races diverged. Source:

With 160 short gene sequences, race can be determined with 100% accuracy for Whites, Asians, and Africans. Source:

Principal continent of origin (race) can be determined with 87% accuracy even for highly mixed populations. Source:

“It is inaccurate to state that race is biologically meaningless.” Source:

Race is biologically real and represents “genetic clusters” of variation. Source:

“Empirical structure within human genetic variation … resembles continentally based racial classifications”. Source:

“Recent research in genetics demonstrates that certain racial, and also ethnic, categories have a biological basis in statistically discernible clusters of alleles.” Source:

“Numerous human population genetic studies have come to the identical conclusion that genetic differentiation is greatest when defined on a continental basis.” Source:

Genetic analysis of race corresponds with self-identification more than 99% of the time. Source:

The “social constructionist account of race lacks biological reality”. Source:

Race can be determined from fingerprints. Source:

For 99.86% of individuals, genetic analysis of race matches self-identification. Source:

Predefined ethnic/racial labels are “highly informative” about genetic identity. Source:

Over 2000 genes have been subject to recent (post out-of-Africa) evolution. Source:

The concept of race existed in ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, China, India, and Arabia. Source:

Racial classification has genetic significance. Source:

Racial identity is real and is hidden in correlations between different traits. Source:

With enough data points, an individual will never be closer related to someone of another race than someone of their own race. Source:

An individual’s geographic origin can be determined from their genes “with remarkable accuracy”. Source:

>So you believe which research makes you happy, and I’ll believe the research that makes me happy.

Your "research" gets minorities killed.

Amazon has a $25 car air mattress (link) , which fits into the back seat of your car. It would really help you sleep better, and you can get it delivered to an amazon locker since you don’t have an address.

Before I was in a tight money spot myself, I used to buy food or things like the mattress for people in the r/assistance and r/RandomKindness groups. The people there are super helpful, and you should definitely post a link (with other things too if you need). I know sleeping in a car sucks, so even this little thing would make it a little easier!

Well, I guess I don't know if everyone calls it that. That's what we called it in the Anthropology department that I went through. My advisor wrote a book that was tangentially about it:

Caught in Play: How Entertainment Works on You

But, it might be easier to think of as a recurrence of the social opinions and thought that characterized the first Romantic movement. Glorification of subjectivism and of emotional expression. There has been a rise in the far right in virtually every country in the West and Middle East over the last 15 or so years. Part of that is due to the rise of the overall "emotional temperature", so-to-speak.

Pronghorns are a living Artifact in thay sense. As it sits, no predator in their natural range can catch them unless they get an ambush or the prey is wounded.

The Americas had a great diversity of large wildlife several thousand years ago. For anyone interested, I would recommend the book American Serengeti by Dan Flores.

On the other hand the extermination campaign this started against H. Pylori was a bad thing. Microbiomics is showing the importance of complex and healthy gut flora.

Here is a book written about how H. Pylori is also one of the “good guys” in your intestinal flora

Here is a book written about how H. Pylori is sometimes also one of the “good guys” among your intestinal flora

PSA: Don’t buy the book. If you’re interested check it out from a local library. It is very interesting though.

Yeah it's pretty amazing. The doctor who discovered phantom pain wrote a book about it, if you're interested:

It's from 1998 so the science has probably progressed a fair amount, but I think it would still be an interesting read.

If anyone reading this guy's comment finds this sort of stuff interesting, I would highly, highly recommend this book on Morality, Justice, Society, that sort of thing. This comment reminded me of this guy's writing style & I couldn't put this thing down:

Justice by Michael J. Sandel

u/Leovinus_Jones · 25 pointsr/HumansBeingBros

Better yet, keep one of these in your car for occasions like this, or when you need to break a window to escape.

The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success

That's the book. They asked a question along the lines of "what's the difference in this group of pictures?" And the difference wasn't the subject. The difference was the persons hand in all of the shots had six fingers, and for some reason psychopaths tend to notice those things more than others.

We’ve reached the times when we are thankful to a robot. Maybe we should start a flashmob? #thanksoppy

The End of Alzheimer’s is a newer book that suggests a series of lifestyle choices to limit the effects of Alzheimer’s and maintain, and possibly regain, cognitive ability.

It requires fairly strict adherence to lifestyle and diet choices and monitoring several metabolic factors through blood tests to keep the metabolic factors within an optimal range.

It’s interesting stuff but I think I’d rather live a more normal life and indulge in some vices rather than prolong the inevitable outcome by some number of years.

If anyone is interested in learning more, try The Discovery of Insulin by Michael Bliss (amazon link). The before/after pictures of diabetic children are horrifying and compelling. It also makes you think hard about what it means to test on animals.

They are also referred to as Terms of Venery or "Company terms" and some of the earliest can be found in the Book of Saint Albans, pub. 1486. A good contemporary compendium of terms of Venery is an Exaltation of Larks pub. 1993.

If you haven't read Notorious RBG, I highly recommend it.

Everyone should invest in a window breaking tool for emergencies such as this. Many of them have seatbelt cutters built in if it gets jammed too.

This is so out of sync with research on social capital theory though.... Nan Lim's book on social capital theory is a remarkable piece that discusses access to resources. You should consider reading it to inform your perspective?

He uses a pyramid to frame his approach with three tiers. Those with little social capital (poor, folks of color, etc..) on the bottom, those with some (middle class) in the middle, and those with a lot on top (usually wealthy, white). He argues that social capital never flows up from the bottom to the top (poor to rich) but can always flow down (rich to the poor).

Think about this, a rich wealthy person can enter a poor community, meet with local nonprofits, have police escort them around the community where they walk around and shake hands and such. Its also why you see all these shit youtube videos with white kids doing stuff in the ghetto because its "safe" for them from a social capital theory perspective to enter this space.

You don't see the reversal. A person from the bottom of a triangle can't go into Manhattan and demand meetings with CEOs of hedgefunds. We don't see folks from the poor communities going to the wealthy communities to make their shit youtube videos.

Now these are not absolutes (cause its sociology lol) but are generalities about society functions. Its just academically lazy to read a clickbait putnam article and be like "see diversity sucks" without thinking at the larger level. I would also argue that how people experience racism rather than everyone is racist has an impact of social capital as well...

I also think saying everyone is prejudice vs everyone is racist is a bit better as well but yeah, that gets in to how you want to define racism/prejudice as there has been general shifts in thought.
