Talking about designer babies, my department ran a workshop on this a couple years back. I was the only non-white in the room and everyone was worried that if gene editing was to be widely available all people of colour would want their children to be white and there would be a loss of diversity. I was too dumbfounded to even comment.

What the hell? Sounds like the most cringe concern trolling I’ve ever heard lmao.

Editing race will be the hardest anyway so it should be the least of anyone’s concerns. The subtle facial differences between racial groups are controlled by thousands of genes.

So if gene editing ever becomes widespread and some Black couple wants White children all they’ll be getting is a Black child with blue eyes, blonde hair, and light skin. Basically an albino.
