"In February 1978 the Sociobiology Study Group organized a two-day symposium at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington D.C. The symposium is perhaps best remembered for an incident involving a group of protesters from the International Committee Against Racism (INCAR). Just before E. O. Wilson gave his talk, the microphone was taken over by members of INCAR chanting "Racist Wilson you can't hide, we charge you with genocide"." --Sholem Stein
