Is it bad that my innate cynicism suspects it was white guys that did it?
I'm not sure if you're serious or not Ethan. In the post directly above yours I listed seven examples of inherited behaviors.
My entry into this discussion was when you affirmed that you believed humans didn't evolve in response to environment. I don't think policy decisions should be based on it, but if you actually believe that humans are the only animal species without evolved behavioral and cognitive differences, I'm not sure what more there is to say.

Ten years? Fifty years? It's an area where the Left is especially anti-science in. I share your concern...
See guys?! She was only extremely careless with national security. Let's give her a promotion!She's the second-shittiest candidate of my lifetime, but she has the extraordinary luck of facing the shittiest.
