A brand-new episode (No. 86) of Addicted to Race is out! Addicted to Race is New Demographic’s weekly podcast about America’s obsession with race.
Carmen interviews Dr. Joseph L. Graves, author of the book The Race Myth: Why We Pretend Race Exists in America. They discuss the recent controversy over scientist James Watson’s comments about the intellectual inferiority of black people. Watson won a Nobel prize for being one of the people responsible for discovering the structure of DNA.
Dr. Joseph L. Graves is the Dean of University Studies and a professor of biology at North Caroline A&T State University. He is the author of the books The Emperor’s New Clothes: Biological Theories of Race at the Millennium, Rutgers University Press, 2001, 2005 and The Race Myth: Why We Pretend Race Exists in America, Dutton Press, 2004, 2005. Dr. Joseph Graves, Jr. received his Ph.D. in Environmental, Evolutionary and Systematic Biology from Wayne State University in 1988. In 1994, he was elected a Fellow of the Council of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for his pioneering work in establishing the genetic and physiological controls of aging. His research concerns the evolutionary genetics of postponed aging and biological concepts of race in humans, with over fifty papers and book chapters published, and appearances in six documentary films on these general topics. He has been a Principal Investigator on grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and the Arizona Disease Research Commission.
