If she doesn't get therapeutic exposure to molded plastic resin immediately, she risks chronic back pain, wrecked shoulders, horrible body odor, disfiguring scars, and permanent nasty attitude. Please notify the parents.

It shows up on a small percentage of faces of every shape and color exposed to the heights. If the propensity is there, opportunity and support are the limiting factors.

In the US, this generally skews the profile of your average climber to one with a fairer complexion. Here in California, using this same set of influences (& the corresponding demographics of the area), you can extend this 'typical climber' profile a bit to include people of eastern Asian descent as well.
If you're struggling to support your family & to just make ends meet, you're not going to be as inclined to go out & suffer in your freetime, regardless of your skin color (go to your nearest trailer park & take a poll to see how many climbers you find there).

A black dude in LG? That's almost as rare as seeing a black dude in the back country!
