Macro, specifically International Monetary Relations. And he's from the Scottish side of my family.

The five micro profs I had in college were: Puerto Rican, Asian, Arab, Indian and White.

I took too many macro classes to remember... trying to remember if I had a non-white macro prof, though. I think one of them might have been Arab or Persian. A plurality (if not majority) of them were Jewish. The ones I remember off hand 3 waspy dudes, 2 jewish dudes, 1 jewish female and 1 waspy female.

I never never drew the connection.
