That doesn't quite help though, it just tell us to forget about those who are doing something different and daring regardless of the demographic around them.

it helps a lot, it tells us we need to focus on culture and not demographics. This rabbit hole will lead to nothing but issues down the line. Let me ask you this. When is White people month? When is yellow people month? When is X people month?
You get where I'm going with this, if you start separating achievements based on how someone looks, we're at the start of a society that is judged on appearance and not on achievement.
