RACE, THE CONCEPT OF : CONTROVERSY
Morning, Ann. ""Everyone Knows It's a Social Construct": Contemporary Science and the Nature of Race."
 
Sociological Focus
40.4 (2007): pp. 436-454.
(This is the definitive article for any argument showing the widespread scientific confusion about "race" between anthros, socios, medicaldoctors, biolos, geneticists, etc. She gives all the money quotes from academic association official declarations, etc. She interviews a bunch of 
 
 profs, to update Lieberman's work from the 1980s«phenomenal verbal gymnastics by these 'academics' to avoid saying what makes themuncomfortable. Truly something to witness.)"Sociological literature frequently claims that scientists across the disciplinary spectrum have arrived at the common conclusion that race issocially constructed, not biologically anchored. I investigate contemporary scientific thinking about race by interviewing more than 40 biologistsand anthropologists at four northeastern universities. Contrary to sociologists' expectations, racial constructionism is revealed to be a minorityviewpoint. Moreover, this research shows that the usual "constructionist" versus "essentialist" dichotomy a blunt tool for characterizing thedebate about race«""«anthropologist Leonard Lieberman and his colleagues. In 1984-1985, they surveyed 725 professors of biology, anthropology, and psychology, randomly selected from professional association directories (response rates ranged from 54-84% by subfield). When asked for their opinion of the statement, 'There are biological races in the species Homo sapiens,' 74% of the biologists surveyed agreed with it, whereas 49% of the physical anthropologists agreed and only 31% of the cultural anthropologists did (Lieberman 1997).""one embraces the ideas that are perceived, consciously or unconsciously, as legitimizing or favorably accounting for one's status. In support of this hypothesis, Lieberman (1997) found that across disciplines, women were consistently more likely than their male colleagues to refute thenotion of biological races." (interesting!)

34.1 (2004): 1+.
(Long, detailed report from big scientific ('hard' and 'soft') working group in the early 2000s, an important effort towards giving tools to thosewho want to have Holder's famous 'conversation on race.' Author is clearly a blank-slatist himself but reports the varied biological findings, behavioral findings, philosophical debates, legal problems, genetic manipulation possibilities, etc. of his colleagues with objectivity. Animportant base document for any serious, sober public debate about genetics & what policies should flow from it.)

(Quote: "The Universal Nonverbal Intelligence Test (UNIT; Bracken & McCallum, 1998) is standardized, norm referenced measureof intelligence that requires only universal hand gestures from the examiner and examinee. The UNIT was constructed in order to measure thecognitive abilities of children who may be disadvantaged by more traditional intelligence tests, which typically emphasize receptive andexpressive language abilities. In the present study, standardization data from the UNIT is examined to identify group differences in performance.

espite its novel nonverbal format and response demands
