Gary Younge (born 1969) is a British journalist, author and broadcaster. In the late 1980s Younge attended Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh where he studied languages and was elected Vice President (Welfare) of the Student Association, a paid sabbatical post he held for a year. In 1984 and at age 15, Younge briefly joined the Young Socialists – the youth section of the Workers Revolutionary Party.
He argues, 'If race is an arbitrary fiction, then ‘race-mixing’ is a conceptual absurdity. ‘In neighboring populations there is much overlapping of genes and their phenotypic (physical) expressions,’ the AAA continues. ‘Throughout history whenever different groups have come into contact they have interbred. The continued sharing of genetic materials has maintained all of humankind as a single species.’ Put simply, to the extent to which ‘mixed race’ makes any sense at all, we are all mixed race.
