Memo To White Nationalists From A Geneticist: Why White Purity Is A Terrible Idea

On August 14th, UCLA researchers Aaron Panofsky and Joan Donovan presented findings of their study,  “When Genetics Challenges a Racist’s Identity: Genetic Ancestry Testing among White Nationalists,” at a sociology conference in Montreal. They’d analyzed 3,070 comments organized into 70 threads publicly posted to the (sometimes difficult to access) “social movement online community”  Stormfront.Former KKK Grand Wizard Don Black launched Stormfront on March 27, 1995. Posts exceed 12 million, ramping up since the 2016 election season. Panofsky and Donovan’s report has a lot of sociology speak, such as “scholars of whiteness” and “affiliative self-fashioning,” amid some quite alarming posts – yet also reveals a sophisticated understanding of genetics from some contributors.A WHITE NATIONALIST ONLINE MEET-UP: STORMFRONT“We are the voice of the new, embattled White minority!”proclaims the bold, blood-tinged-hued message on the opening page of Stormfront, the “community of racial realists and idealists.” It’s a site for white nationalists, who are a little less extreme than white supremacists, who want to dominate the world from their pinnacle of a perceived racial hierarchy. The Stormfronters seem more concerned with establishing their white purity – defined as “non-Jewish people of wholly European descent.”Yet the lines between whit...

Sharma, Shailendra Kumar AryaAbstractA laccase producing new bacterial strain (Alcaligenes faecalis XF1) was isolated from green site of Chandigarh (India) by standard screening method. Nutrient broth medium containing 0.2 mM CuSO4 was used for the production of laccase. Maximum production (110 U/ml) was achieved after four days of incubation. The extracellular laccase from the medium was purified by simple salt precipitation and ion exchange technique to get 3.8 fold purified protein with 1637.8 U/mg spec...

In this study, four different weight% of Punica granatum fruit peel extract were used as green stabilizers to synthesize IONPs followed by a series of characterization experiments and in vitro anticancer evaluation. Results revealed that all synthesized IONPs have high degree of crystallinity and purity. The optimum saturation magnetization, and hydrodynamic size were found to be ∼69 emu.g−1, and 26.52 nm, respectively. Morphological studies demonstrated that adding peel extract decreased size of NPs with the average particle size below 11 nm. Cytotoxicity assay showed that the IONPs were not react...

It is highly sensitive to hypoxia, and this has posed a challenge to its intensive culturing. To date, the effects of hypoxia on reproduction in female prawns are not entirely clear, as are the underlying mechanisms of the effects of hypoxia. In this work, comparative t...

This study highlighted the expression pattern of BnapPLAs and BnaPLCs in different tissues and their expression in response to abiotic stresses in Brassica napus. The results revealed that several members of BnapPLA3, PI-PLC1/2 and NPC1 were actively regulated by abiotic stresses. Lipid changes at different time points under stress conditions were also measured. Lipid profiling revealed that the level of lysophospholipids and diacylglycerol (DAG) showed a varied pattern of changes under different abiotic stress treatments. The change of lipids correlated with the transcriptional regulation of a few specific members of pPLA...
