Is the man in the second row waving to say, “Hey, there are white guys in the military, too”? Or is he saying, “I’m actually Filipino; it’s the pale faceless folks in the third row who are the white men who do most of the fighting and dying”?

By the way, I estimated in 2009 that whites were 1.89 times more likely to die fighting in Iraq and 2.46 times more likely to die in combat in Afghanistan than their share of the population would suggest.

Update: Commenter the cruncher points out about Google:

They put POCs in their image so they don’t have to put them in their workforce.

Ouch.
