Skin Deep

Reading through the Washington Post this morning, I stumbled upon an article about how scientists have discovered a genetic mutation that accounts for white skin.

"It’s a major finding in a very sensitive area," said Stephen Oppenheimer, an expert in anthropological genetics at Oxford University, who was not involved in the work. "Almost all the differences used to differentiate populations from around the world really are skin deep."

Probably not something they will be teaching in Kansas schools.
