  • African-American guests were nine percent of U.S. sources; African-Americans make up 13% of the American population
  • Latino guests were only two percent of U.S. sources; Hispanic or Latinos areĀ 16.9% of the American population
  • Asian-Americans made up one percent of U.S. sources; they account for 5.1% of the American population
