This video is a great demonstration of how awesome population genetics is! Enjoy!
By the way, the 2013 census has 17.1% of the US population being Hispanic - a group everyone recognizes as being a minority. According to this source, my blue eyes puts me in a category representing only 16% of the population. That's a difference of more than 3 million people. But, unfortunately, I can't go applying for any minority scholarships making that claim. My application would be laughed right into the trash. Culturally, being a minority is strictly a race distinction, but, from a genetic perspective, my genotype is actually more rare. Interesting to think about.
I am a biologist and my life is crap!
