National Geographic editor in chief Susan Goldberg published a dramatic front-page article in 2018 stating that the concept of race is “a made-up label” with “no scientific basis.”
“There’s no scientific basis for race — it’s a made-up label,” the article title read.
“It’s been used to define and separate people for millennia,” said the subheadline. “But the concept of race is not grounded in genetics.”
Last week, Goldberg published an article bashing white people as a group that prominently featured a white woman declaring, “I’m ashamed for my ancestors’ race.”
The article, which is part of the Race Card Project that asked half a million people over ten years “to describe their feelings on race in just 6 words,” featured just a handful of people — almost all of whom exclusively bashed whites, mostly for perceived microaggressions.

Meanwhile, Rod Dreher on Twitter highlighted how Goldberg sent out a mass email describing herself on her “race card” as “white, privileged, with much to learn.”
In 2018, Goldberg did a interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency where she said she “identifies as a Reform Jew.”
“[Goldberg] was involved in the Habonim Labour Zionist youth movement, and at the age of 17 she lived for six months on a kibbutz in southern Israel,” JTA reported.
Goldberg said that since starting her position at NatGeo “her ‘biggest push’ has been to increase gender, ethnic and racial diversity on the staff,” JTA noted.
“I just don’t think that you are going to end up with authentic stories if you’ve only got an all-white staff, and a majority male staff, and that is what it was,” Goldberg told JTA. “We’ve been working very hard to change it.”
I guess race is real after all!
