The committee was the idea of Cambridge's police commissioner and was made up of experts in law enforcement and race.
How do I become an expert in race? Sounds like an interesting job.
The topic ("race") is fraught with very little objective fact, in my opinion, since the concept of race, in the way of analogy, is like judging a gift, based on whether the wrapping paper reflects one's favorite color or design.
Anyway, I think some people subscribe to the word "race" interchangebly with nationality, or ethnic group.
And, if the Nazis won, they would have been de facto experts on race.
However, I do not believe being an expert on race would be "interesting." It might be frustrating once one got some DNA samples from different populations of supposedly separate races, and discovered the similarities.
