    Over the weekend I have been reading about the use mtDNA on determining human population distribution. I came a cross a name of anthropologist [FONT=&quot]Fatimah Jackson, who with her colleague (Lieberman) questioned the validity of race (the human race, that is) has a scientific concept.

    Anyway, I became curious about her name (Fatimah)....
    Sure enough she looks very much like an East African woman...
