No malice here, just a problem to solve.

I attended an International Scientific Conference and it was packed by Hindus, Latinos and Chinese. All the session Chairs were Hindus and 99% of the participants of the students' section were the bushy-tailed and bright-eyed Latino and Chinese students. Obviously, most of them were from the US universities. I sat there, in the lobby of the posh hotel and remembered that jackass- Russian immigrant who wrote an article in the Russian-language US newspaper 'Forward' (currently 'Forum') several years ago. In that article he professed that the US would be overridden by the minorities and 'lower-level' immigrants which would result in the general lower standards and also in the 'communism coming to America'. One the gems of his was, 'I recently attended a conference on physics and there were no Mexicans or Blacks there'. That was supposed to prove to the reader that 'Mexicans and Blacks' were not inclined to the exact sciences. I really would love to see his face now! On the other hand, as far as I know, such people are incurable.
