In this rejoinder we provide notes to consider when reviewing the research on the relationship between race, personality and crime. We concur with DeLisi (2017, this issue) that the equivocal nature of this research demands that there is a need for further inquiry. We also agree with Zuckerman (2002) that there is a distinction between personality disorders and crime but also that crime cannot be used as a proxy for personality disorders. We argue that the research suggests that there are no genetic components of personality disorder and also that this disorder has been found to be equally distributed across racial/ethnic groups. Understanding why there appears to be a racial/ethnic personality disorder disparity within the criminal justice system may be more a function of social class and historical circumstance than genetic composition.
