    the real/Science prizes are difficult to give to tokens.
    Hard to make up a brilliant body of work.
    Literature/Peace/BS prizes do go to PC/politcal-point winners.

    When a Jewish guy wins the Marathon or NBA MVP, an Ethiopean/Kenyan will win the Physics prize.
    Don't hold your breath on either of those counts.

    Genius is common in the Jewish people.

    Overachieving academically and then in ones field also common in that ethnic.

    That's basically all there is to it.

    It's not ethnic imo.

    Eugenics has provided the impetus.

    South Koreans study the central text of Judaism, the Talmud, in the hope of cultivating genius.
    Close to 50 million people live in South Korea, and almost everyone is taught the Talmud at home by their parents.

    "We tried to understand why the Jews are geniuses, and we came to the conclusion that we think it is because they study the Talmud," said the Korean ambassador to Israel, Young Sam Ma. Almost every home in South Korea now contains a Korean-translated Talmud. But unlike in Israel, the Korean mothers teach the Talmud to their children. In a country of close to 49 million people who believe in Buddhism and Christianity, there are more people who read the Talmud - or at least own their own copy at home - more than in the Jewish state. Much more.

    Young, who was hosted on the Channel 1 TV programme “Culture Today”.

    "A high percentage of Nobel laureates in all fields – literature, science and economics – are Jews. This is a remarkable achievement. We tried to understand the secret of the Jewish people. How they – more than other people – are able to reach those impressive accomplishments. We wanted to know why Jews are so intelligent. In our opinion, one of your secrets is that you study the Talmud.

    And because of such a small population we have been able to follow intellectual bloodlines for thousands of years. Memory tools to transfer the knowledge of our books when we were not allowed to have them in print, etc.

    While some other people are doing the opposite and thinning their lines.

    It was the Nazi's who perverted the science of training and raising intellect and turned it into a racist ideology.

    The Jews just knew that they needed every chance they could have since they knew what tendering the laws to the world would entail.

    Smart eh?

    But not because of ethnicity imo ....

    The culture of the Hebrews has cultivated and respected intellectual achievement for a couple of thousand years. Any culture that does the same will get the same results, irregardless of the color of the skin, or point of origin of the culture.

    They believe in science. Like Liberals and Democrats.

    Republicans? Conservatives? Not so much.

    Bet all those winners understand "climate change" and "evolution".
