I am trying to say that Science bypasses cultural frontiers. Oskar Lange (Polish), Alec Nove (Russian), Henry D. Dicksinson (British), James Yunker (USA), etc.
I know that Social Sciences are especially susceptible to respond to cultural patronage or cronyism, but today these kind of counter-scientific influences tend to be deluded thanks the development of Science itself and the Internet, migration, crossbreeding, etc.
In addition, it is dangerous to base Science upon cultural/ethnical rivalry.
The extreme case of James Watson is especially shameful:
Kind regards,
