I've had a conversation where a woman scientist implored me to never forget the struggle of women in science, or even more rarely, a hispanic (male) scientist (even in my neck of the woods!). And she's absolutely right on both accounts. Extrapolating the rarity of brown to black makes for even more appalling statistics, in line with my own experiences.
