Essentially everyone pre-1980's was on board with scientific racism; and as a scientist I'm on board with scientific racism. I think the modern issue is not that people can't clearly see the data; but that they choose not to interrogate it and follow it down. I'd personally rather be working on essentially anything other than racial shit in any given moment honestly.You mean like James Watson or most of the people who studied DNA and biology for the better part of the last century, or are you just trying to say that anyone who disagrees with you is an incel?
EDIT: It's not a profitable, safe (in terms of career) or easily 'marketable' area of study unless you just shit out some selective piece that makes the data do what you want. The entire academic freedom thing is bullshit.
