Needs serious editing and removal of irrelevant references[edit]

It seems like nearly half of the article's quotes come from one Dorothy Roberts, who is an anti-race crusading law professor and not a scientist. It's clear that whoever added those is on a mission to balance out the article, but has had trouble finding strong support for his ideological views among actual experts, and has sullied the article with the overuse of her quotes. I'm not for removing them all (and I just took out a couple particularly political ones), but they need to be seriously trimmed down, much more than what I've done. I'm hoping someone else will take a look as there are just so many of them that I'd struggle to do the amount of pruning and rewriting required. Nonetheless, this article contains important information and it's needed on Wikipedia, especially after removal of the A.F. Edwards discussion from the Human Genetic Diversity article.

Population clustering from copy number variation genotypes[edit]

This topic should be discussed in this article. It is discussed in this article and includes this figure. --Saul Greenberg (talk) 12:17, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Hopeless article[edit]

The text in this article is an incoherent rambling with no structure. It's also based almost entirely on primary sources. Hardly anything from here is salvageable besides the references and pictures. Tijfo098 (talk) 23:13, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

I know that you've stopped editing Wikipedia, Tijfo098, at least for now or under your Tijfo098 username, but I felt the need to state that I just got through calling this article a mess, and I see that the first section after this pretty much does as well.

restored article[edit]

The article was recently reduced to a stub with no discussion. I have restored the article to it's non-stub state. aprock (talk) 23:25, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

All the edits were carefully explained and relevant material moved to other articles. This article now has many inaccuracies and overlap with other articles. I will restore prior state.Miradre (talk) 20:12, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
I see that you have reverted again. Please explain here on talk. See my above response.Miradre (talk) 00:28, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
