    Why isn't W up there? W is for Windows users

        Correct a certain imbalance? That imbalance exists because these people are simply not imterested in coding...

            I think Outreachy spots a problem and I can't fault them for wanting to help, but imho it's going the wrong way about it.

            The reason why white men dominate STEM area isn't because white men are somehow discriminating against everyone else and thus you need to discriminate against them to fix it, it's because of stupid society stigmas and education. If you want to fix it, go into schools, get rid of gender-specific toys, campaign for free education for all and help on fixing society.

                  Think of all the features they'll be able to remove thanks to this extra funding!

                    Are you planning to replace their brains? It seems non white/east-asian guys and woman aren't good programmers.

                      Or not able to do so. I have nothing about other races, but I don't but 'everyone's equal bullshit'. I'd love to see black pianist playing Chopin on good level or white runner beating runners from Africa.
