Interesting dichotomy

Glenn Reynolds mentioned the "overwhelmingly white" meme, and malcontent that I am, I just had to click. The first link went to a story with the following "headline" (more editorial than headline, really):

"Tea Party rally big on God, short on colour"
If they were interested in mathematical balance, you'd think they could have at least mentioned that there are innumerable churches which are big on both.

To say nothing of certain houses of incestuous worship that are notoriously small on both.

I'm feeling overwhelmingly underwhelmed.

Eric, I don't know if you read FrnakJ, but he had something illuminating to say about this, and did it in his inimitible style.

In case you can't read URLish:
Headline
This Weekend’s Rally Caused Much Fear and Concern for Predominantly White Liberals

a paragraph
“Today, the predominantly white White House Press Corps asked questions about the president’s predominantly white cabinet. The predominantly white Robert Gibbs assured them that they were working towards the best interests of the predominantly white United States of America, but he had to cut questions short as he was going on vacation with his predominantly white family. Now, stay tuned for the Emmy-winning, predominantly white Modern Family. Predominantly white people love it!”
