    Unfortunately, they don't have a text online.

    It's about the Kennewick Man, and is interesting in that its sole intent appears to be to muddle the concept of race. It concludes, lamely, with "science will find the truth." It talks at first about European ancestry, then tries to insinuate that while race does exist it's not anything but a skin-color difference, then finally mentions ancient European sub-races to try to debunk race as an argument. It's a very scummy article hiding beneath a modicum of scientific and cultural literacy. Anyone else read it?

    Racial nihilism is preached simply for the sake of unity in a diverse society.

    Race exists physical difference exists anyone with half a brain understands this. But they also that racial differences aren't to be discussed.
