QuoteOriginally posted by: quantmehit simply doesn't make any sense to see 95% male IT personnel. they can argue all day long that "girls don't like computers", i don't buy this bullshit. this country is roughly 50/50 in terms of male/female division, there's no reasonable explanation to have all male in IT. the same goes with quants. you can't make an argument that only asians like math and programming, therefore a quant group in 9 asians out of 10 people. this simply doesn't make any sense.Not trying to prolong this debate, but a friend of mine works in a more glamorous industry and is the exact opposite of what we are talking about here. Almost everyone in that industry is Caucasian and that seems to be an accepted fact of life. Your IQ is irrelevant to that industry; nothing but the colour of your skin, eyes or hair matter too much.It may be just that even if there's an equal proportion of ethnicities who like maths and programming, there's a barrier to different ethnicities in different types of professions. In the industry where my friend works, you can forget about it unless you have certain physical characteristics. On a final note; the day the Asians take over Hollywood and learn to rap properly, we can say Goodbye to America
