In recent years, we have made great strides in understanding how our DNA makes us different in our personal life and in our health. Scientists are now saying that our refusal to recognize the power of DNA makes it harder for us to cope with dangerous ideas about racial superiority, equality, and inequality. We need to acknowledge the role of genetic luck if we are ever to create a fair society, a more perfect union. Will geneticists be able to reclaim genetics from the legacy of eugenics and help America deal with racism? Lunch is included.
