Sad to see that certain groups are deemed to be more worthy than others. Simply racist/sexist.

Sad, anonymous Steven: it's pretty clear you don't know what "racist" or "sexist" mean. But more importantly: if you haven't seen the benefits that initiatives like Forwards and R-Ladies have brought to the R Community -- not least by bringing in a new cohort of talented and enthusiastic developers and data scientists to the community -- then it's pretty clear you're not part of the community.

I make no judgement about Forwards and R-Ladies. Ask yourself if you would be fine with a conference giving financial support to only men or asian/white people?
