Not sure if OP is a minority or not, but as a minority I will tell you, we already knew these numbers. I think it's more the white people that never really had to think about it before that are like. Omg,I never really thought about the fact there only two black people on my floor. I promise you, the two black people did though.

yeah, so i’m an ethnic minority and in ad school. surprised by how few non-white class mates i had (from queens, so it was a huge shock). my first CD told me that i was the only non-white person in the office because of the industry itself... but that office was in a very diverse city (atl)... how can there be any excuse then?

I’m Hispanic and I prefer Latino or just Latin because “Latinx” is hard to say in Spanish and near impossible to say in Portuguese.
