47. There's no shortage of talented people in any demographic.

There are shortages of opportunities.

If most pilots are white guys you can assume it's a shortage of opportunity.

The same applies to college admissions and 99% of all work, even physical labor.

My grandmother was a welder in the shipyards during World War II. She must have been good at it because they kept her on when the war ended. Most women were sent home so that returning soldiers could take their jobs. My grandma then got assigned to lightweight repetitive detail work that women were supposedly better at. I think she would have been happier if she'd continued on with the "men's work," assembling huge plates of steel.
