I hope I don't sound racist, but how come  most American paleontologists I 
know of are what most call "white"? There seem  to exist very few black, 
Hispanic, or Asian-American paleontologists. This  strikes me as particularly 
because American paleontologists do not strike me  as reactionary or racist to 
unusual degrees. Are American racial minorities on  average less interested in 
paleontology or science than white  Americans?
