    Pseudoscience is a practice in which people convince themselves that what they’re doing is science – that it meets scientific standards – but, on closer examination, it turns out that they’re merely aping the methods of science. It’s a kind of fake science. I’m particularly interested in pseudoscience and other dodgy systems of belief. Yet, as Dorothy Roberts’ new book—Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-Create Race in the Twenty-First Century—makes clear, the colorblind ideology is only one aspect of contemporary racism. In often chilling detail, Roberts argues that good old-fashioned biological race thinking has made a comeback alongside newer.

    University of Illinois Press, - Social Science - pages 0 Reviews A comprehensive account of the origins of scientific racism in the Industrial Revolution, its theorists and propagandists, its malign influence on public policy, and its destructive effects on past and present American life.   “What causes racism? And what can be done to overcome our nation's legacy of intolerance and hatred?” Weathering: stress and heart disease .

    Haas, François. “German Science and Black Racism--Roots of the Nazi Holocaust.” FASEB Jour no. 2 (): (Subject Files) [Find in a library near you] Traces the origin of the concept of “racial hygiene” to the work of German physicians and scientists of the late 19th century. The problem with labelling views such as scientific racism as pseudoscience is that it is anachronistic. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries scientific racism was mainstream in biology and anthropology; it was taught at most major universities and was featured in most textbooks.
