That's so racist... though all but three are Indian on my team, and one of them is Asian :lol:
My team is 96% Indian, 3% Chinese, 0.75% White, and 0.25% Hispanic. This is the kind of diversity you see in teams from Katy, TX.
The 2015 FSA Nationals team is so racially diverse by comparison: 20% Asian, 27% Indian, 27% White, 27% Black
See, my school is from the same district as Beckendorff Junior High, and it's like 94% Indian, 6% Chinese there. Oh, and the gender diversity at my school is even worse- I am one of the three girls out of the 30+ people on my team.

FSA's gender diversity when I was there was rotating; 2014's 8th graders were ~75% male, 2015's 8th graders were ~90% female, 2016's 8th graders were ~65% male. This is probably just because the school is so small; with 30-50 people per grade, variations are a lot larger.

Nevermind, last year was closer to 80% male; most of my memories of that grade comes from when I was competing, when there were less males (or at least, less that seemed competent).

Oh wow, only 30-50 people per grade? Our school has an average of about 678 people per grade (there are 2035 people in the whole school). Seven Lakes High School (right next to my school) has almost 4000, so I've heard.

On this topic, my senior year team was majority female and white at the beginning of the year. However, the state team was majority male and Indian.

But honestly, IT SHOULD NOT MATTER.
Remember, we are proud of every team that participated and you are all winners.

1. Yes, my state team was majority male and Indian, too, except for me (I am female and Indian).
2. I know people's gender and ethnicity shouldn't matter here, but it's still interesting to notice this kind of stuff.
