NPR trying to say something

We heard a segment on NPR the other day about recent viewership of television programs that feature black actors.

The commentator made a point of letting us know that non-black people watch the programs.  It sounded like this was a surprise to her.

She gave an example of a TV program where over 60% of the viewers were not black.

The percentage of black members in our population is around 13%.

It is not difficult to figure out how the viewers were predominantly not black.

It seems to us that these guys are trying too hard to make issues out of what in fact is normal.

Have we missed something here?

We deserve better

    For a government-subsidized non-profit corp. with left leanings, pro-Democrat, anti-Trump, commentators are sure paid well for their opinions, http://www.mediaite.com/online/report-non-profit-npr-to-make-a-modest-margin-this-year/

    Difficult to comment without having a link to the original story so we can hear for ourselves what was reported.

  3. Yes, I think you did miss something. They did not sound surprised to this listener, but I just got the impression they were pointing out something that too many people try to ignore. I don’t think they are trying to create an issue where none existed, but perhaps too gently for some, simply reminding us that reality is not always what the rest of the media would have us believe.
