(Not saying that anyone here is making that assumption, just something I've noticed from time to time.) There is also a lot of entertaining gender ambiguity.
I don't know how the profile of admitted students compares to the general population on TLS, but I think that we are actually a pretty diverse bunch under our 'tars, and it seems that Yale values that diversity (read very broadly to include much more than just race and ethnicity)
Yeah, you're green!!
Since something like 65% of applicants are Caucasian (with 10% declining to state, so likely Caucasian also), 3/4 of the time the person to whom you are referring on TLS is white.
Looking at SLS' and HLS' facebook groups, they also seem super diverse... although I don't spend much time pursuing YLS' group to see if its more diverse or not
