Absolutely. You cnnot submit a request for funding to NIH, NSF, or NASA without documenting how you will provide extra help to Afro Americans who might be interestd in the research no matter if people of other races and ethnicities are more adept and more qualified. Submit a request without tjis addendum and see how quickly it is denied.

I am confident that someday our entire society will be race neutral - but that will not happen in my lifetime. Someday we may mix and mingle our DNA enough that we will all be effectively the same race.
