TEDxMidAtlantic conference, Washington DC, October 2012 [ via TED ]

Камерон Расселл[wiki] рвёт, что называется, покровы. Пост возник по мотивам дискуссий в пятничной рубрике.

Вообще-то не совсем по теме, но не мог не заметить этот пассаж:
I have to inform you that in 2007, a very inspired NYU Ph.D. student counted all the models on the runway, every single one that was hired, and of the 677 models that were hired, only 27, or less than four percent, were non-white.
Очередной раз переосмыслил собственные годы в аспирантуре :)
