becoming the first black person to win a Nobel Prize in a category other than peace.[edit]

Maybe I am overly PC here, but doesn't this sentence have a tinge of bigotry? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.240.64.201 (talk) 20:02, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

"in a category other than peace." - this is outrageous to me, as the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Science has nothing to do with the actual Nobel prizes, of which Peace is a category. I'm removing the confusion between the Nobel Prize and the Economics Sciences Prize in Memory of Alfred Nobel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.189.210.175 (talk) 04:45, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Economics prize vs Nobel Prize[edit]

I fail to follow the argument of the distinction between between the real Nobel Prizes and the economic one instituted later on being merely technical given the fact that Nobel_Prize_in_Economics#Controversies_and_criticisms goes to quite some length to show up the dispute about that very issue.

The prize in economics is usually referred to as one of the Nobel prizes.VolunteerMarek 08:00, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
