Tech Pipeline Is Alarmingly White 
By Emily DeRuy, Fusion 
January 14, 2014 
The pipeline of students who will be tomorrow's tech leaders is alarmingly vanilla.

The unobjectionability of food-based ethnic slurs (vanilla, white bread, mayonnaise, etc.) against white people dumbs down public discourse.

According to a new analysis of test-takers, not a single girl, African-American or Hispanic student took the computer science Advanced Placement test in Mississippi or Montana last year. More than a third of the population in Mississippi is black. 
In other words, a hugely disproportionate bunch of white guys took the test.

Obviously, an even more disproportionate number of Asians took the computer science AP test, but we don't have a conceptual category for whites and Asians combined.

Is there some well-known dessert that combines vanilla and lemon flavors? It would sure help the quality of discourse on education and demographics and discrimination if journalists had a food-based ethnic slur that lumps together whites + Asians.

Here are the pass rates (3 out of 5 or higher, equivalent to a C or better in a college 101-level intro course):

All test takers: 67%
Males: 68%
Females: 62%
Blacks: 36%
Black males: 38%
Black females: 27%
Hispanics: 45%
Hispanic Males: 49%
Hispanic Females: 31%
Whites: 66%
White Males: NA
White Females: NA
Asians: 70%
Asian Males: NA
Asian Females: NA
