You might find this 

Not long ago I was at a conference of about 200 people.  It was the 
kind of conference Extropians would be comfortable at.

Inadvertently it comprised an example of what Watson got attacked 
for.  One ethnic classification was considerably over represented 
compared to their numbers in the population and another 
classification was under represented, consisting of only a single 
individual.  That's about what you would expect from a selection 
process that is blind on this axis, but highly discriminatory on 
another axis.

Sorry to be vague about the conference and details.


PS. There is an addendum apologizing for referencing Philip Rushton.
