Genetics for ethnic groups RfC[edit]

For editors interested, there's an RfC currently being held: Should sections on genetics be removed from pages on ethnic groups?. Cheers! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 01:51, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

It should either be removed or updated. The information is over 10 years old and quite dated now since new genetic sequencing tools have been used.-- (talk) 20:55, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

^Agreed. The LGM Theory has been scientifically debunked. Can a certified geneticist revise this?-- (talk) 00:00, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

This genetics section is really bad. It's all from 2003 back when population history was inferred from Y-chromosomes. If no one wants to rewrite it based on current science, it should be removed. It's better not to have a genetic section than to present false information. People reading this might not know about recent advances in ancient dna. 2600:1702:890:73F0:D31:BFAA:E601:A367 (talk) 17:20, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Care to try a hand at rewriting it? I don't know enough about the subject, but if you do, be bold and give it a shot. ~Anachronist (talk) 17:43, 2 November 2018 (UTC)


Let's best continue the discussion here: Before adopting Pan-Slavism Broz initially identified as a Croat, per refs 20-22 in his article, so certainly it makes sense to acknowledge that. Secondly, while he was of both Croatian and Slovenian origin, the Croatian part is what's relevant here as the article is about -- Croats. Besides, one doesn't need to have a 100% homogenous origin to identify as part of an ethnicity. Thirdly, please remain WP:CIVIL and don't call other editors' good faith and informed contributions "mind-boggling", "dubious", etc. DaßWölf 05:13, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
