The New York Times Board of Directors is whiter than a Tea Party

Oops, looks like we have a case of people in glass houses throwing stones. Yesterday, New York Times columnist Charles Blow, said he found the Dallas Tea Party he attended to be a minstrel show because of the lack of diversity. Well it looks like Mr. Blow might want to check out the minstrel show going on right under his very nose.

Just One Minute blog caught this glaring lack of diversity at the New York Times: 
… Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting a correction on this from Mr. Blow:
A New York Times/CBS News poll released on Wednesday found that only 1 percent of Tea Party supporters are black and only 1 percent are Hispanic. It’s almost all white.
It's almost all white and he has the pictures to prove it.  Ooops, my bad - that was a link to the NY Times Board of Directors, which seems to be utterly free of any Hispanic, black or Asian presence.  
The left is oh so very quick to point out the lack of diversity in everything the right does, but they seem very reluctant to apply the same standards to themselves. Never fear, Michelle Malkin put on her racial bean counting cap and takes a closer look at just how diverse the media really is.

Your link to Michelle Malkin's site doesn't work. Here is the real one:

Thanks for the heads up. Michelle might want to check her link at Memeorandum, it too isn't working.

Yep - that lineup looks pretty "white bread" to me. As an American of Italian descent, I take great offense to that bunch of pasty-faced Euro-weenies. My best friend Tony (Soprano) is also offended.
