    I graduated college in California 30 years ago and the races were somewhat segregated by major then too -

    Asians - Information Technology
    Middle Easterners - Engineering
    Blacks - Physical Education, African-American Studies
    Hispanics - Mexican-American Studies

    I was a business major and remember only 1 Black and 1 Asian student who was also a business major.

    Women also are segregated by favoring the Humanities over the Sciences and Engineering. Some feminists complain that women make less than men due to sexism. I believe that it is due, in part, to the above.
