There should be more black physicists.

p>I am a retired White physicist and worked with hundreds of colleagues over the course of my career. I could count the Black ones on one hand. Go to any major scientific conference and look for the black faces – they are few and far between. We’ve had diversity programs for as long as I can remember but they’re not working. I don’t know why we’re failing to train Black scientists, but we are.
