This is great and compelled me to subscribe.

Distressing stuff, but I couldn't help but chuckle at this:

"...GWAS results are not "portable"; a study conducted on white Britons tells you little about people in Estonia or Nigeria."

A theory based on an experiment without the possibility of a "control", and that can't replicate it's results if you switch out the people.

Then she throws out the assertion that only a quarter of the inequality is structural/societal. What could she possibly be basing that on?
