From David Klinghoffer at Evolution News & Views:
In Human Zoos, Dr. West explores the shameful legacy of pseudo-scientific racism that has trailed Darwinian theory from its inception down to today, with the emergence of the so-called alt-right.
The film will premiere at the Oregon Documentary Film Festival on Saturday evening, November 11. It will release to the general public next year. More.
The pseudo-scientific racism was predictable from the get-go, once humans were proclaimed to be not special (we became subject to science-based reckonings as if we were animals). And once the Darwinian worldview was adopted by Big Cool Science, the racism became something those who wanted to get ahead just did not talk about. Call Darwinian racism, if you want, the Harvey Weinstein of science. Protected by everybody whose interests are served. Collapses tend to follow.

The alt right, Donald Trump, and – oddly enough – Darwin. Anyone not committed to Darwinian survival of the fittest cannot be ‘alt right’.
