    I don't know why my first reply didn't appear, despite my other message, so I'l try again.

    First, Economy having math in the coursework, doesn't mean that is as exact science as pure Math, Physics or Chemistry.

    And Economy itself, is as exact science as Psychology, for instance. Psychology relying heavily on stats won't turn them into an exact science, cause it also depends on subjective speculation, same as Economy.

    Second, the Economy prize IS NOT AN OFFICIAL NOBEL PRIZE. The real name of the prize is Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.

    Third, it's only ONE prize, in a field that doesn't require the out-of-this-world abstraction capability.

    Call me when a black scientist wins a Nobel prize in physics or chemistry, or a Fields Medal, then, and only then, we'd start thinking about blacks having the benefit of the doubt the hispanics have, with their laureates, the mayas precedent, the Escalante precedent or the superelite chess GMs precedents.
