At the same time, he is enacting policies through a militarized police force that are economically oppressing the majority of Puerto Ricans or outright pushing them off their land.
Unfortunately, some in the broader population of Latinx/a/o people in the United States practice anti-Blackness on a daily basis.
Anti-Blackness is taught and reinforced in homes, in church, at school and via TV networks like Univision and Telemundo.
Through an SNP database — single nucleotide polymorphisms, the most common type of genetic variation among people — he created the perfect human in silico by setting the alleles at all SNPs so they are “good” and “add the perfect human” to a panel of genotyped individuals from various populations to perform PCA (principal component analysis) to reveal the location and population origin of the individual.
Pachter further explained, “an SNP entry includes fields for ‘magnitude’ (a subjective measure of significance on a scale of 0–10) and ‘repute’ (good or bad), and allele classifications for many diseases and medical conditions.” He added, “If the genotype of an individual is known at many SNPs, it is therefore possible to guess where they are from.” Pachter then unveiled the perfect human with genetic advantages actually lives in the U. but were born on the island have been shown to have a mixture of 50 percent European, 30 percent West African, and 20 percent Native American.
As I sat down and gathered my thoughts, I reminded myself that this is not just White Supremacy; this is anti-Blackness. Ramos’ is the colonized mindset that Frantz Fanon wrote about.
Fanon was a Martinique-born psychiatrist, philosopher and revolutionary.
Interestingly, in Brazil, the affluent people are overwhelmingly of European ancestry, while favelas are primarily home to people of mixed race.
He believes mixed-race people are more likely to have a good functioning copy of each gene from their mother and father, which means they are more likely to have healthy biological systems that allow them to cope with stress.
For those of us who have studied our history and understand our connection to the African-American struggle here in the United States, we must align ourselves unapologetically with our Blackness. First and foremost, we are going to have to stand up and reject the race to whiteness.
We are going to have to see Blackness outside of phenotype.
Offspring tend to produce unpredictable characteristics that are advantageous to the human population.
Diverse genetic ancestry could be the gateway to attaining better health. Violence and post-traumatic stress disorder in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: the protocol for an epidemiological and genetic survey.
Two days ago, while watching the “Vice News” report on what happened in Charlottesville, I noticed a man getting into a van with David Duke and I saw the Puerto Rican flag folded in his hands.
