No really a huge shocker. The vast majority of people we let into the US from Africa get in either on employer visas or through demonstrating that they have valuable skills. No shocker a sample that is hand picked beats a random sample.
While about 8 percent
, or about 530, of Harvard's undergraduates were black, Lani Guinier, a Harvard law professor, and Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Harvard's African and African-American studies department, pointed out that the majority of them — perhaps as many as two-thirds — were West Indian and African immigrants or their children, or to a lesser extent, children of biracial couples.
