A curious statistic from the survey of broadcasting representation.
Broadcast network programs had higher percentages of black female (28%) and Latina (7%) characters in major roles than programs on streaming services (21% and 3%, respectively). Streaming programs included a higher percentage of Asian and Asian American females than those on the broadcast networks (15% vs. 10%).
White people make up 57% of the country, Latinos 18.7%, black people 12% and Asians 6%.
Black women are highly overrepresented, Asians somewhat so, while Latino women hardly exist.
But that’s what artificial managed diversity looks like. It’s not representative of the actual demographics. It doesn’t elevate minority groups. Instead, it plays favorites, it picks and chooses based on which minority groups are politically in vogue and politically useful.
