becoming the first black person to win a Nobel Prize in a category other than peace.
Maybe I am overly PC here, but doesn't this sentence have a tinge of bigotry? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (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 188.8.131.52 (talk) 04:45, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
