The idea that genes are connected to behavior carries the potential for people to ignore the historical forces that bring people to where they are. The danger lies in assuming that this new science, along with computer technology, will put us on a level playing field. That is a dangerous mistake because it doesn't. Who will have access to these amazing technologies? Will it be poor people or people with lots of cash? Right now, it's people with money. It's very classist and racist."
