This was a thought-provoking article by an Asian male programmer about disparities in his experience learning programming, and those around him: http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/technology/2014/01/programmer_privilege_as_an_asian_male_computer_science_major_everyone_gave.html

I sometimes wonder if I somehow missed this micro-inequity or if I never noticed it. I can’t think of many discouraging words I had to shrug off in my career.
