Some research is finding that people of different continental origins have different DNA. The article does give examples of products/designs that are already operating under that assumption (the heart disease drug for African Americans). Concern about “support” for racism is mentioned (if people really are genetically different, then…) and talk of this research leading to a tie between race and I.Q. I mean, there are all kinds of implications, I suppose, so let me ask what about the design implications (operating on the assumption that this research is valid and that folks from different continental origins do have different DNA)? And in a case where the role of environment and DNA were to be diametrically opposed, then what would take precedence?
