Given the power structure of this country - white dudes rule! - it makes some sense that white dudes are overrepresented on the cable teevee. "Newsmakers" - politicians and the like - are going to disproportionately be white dudes. But when it comes to the highly skilled job of "cable news bloviator" there's no reason for white dudes to be overrepresented. More than that, it provides an easy opportunity to correct the inherent imbalance.
