The National Venture Capital Association has completed its 2011 census. Now we all know the business of doling out money to tech startups is a pasty one—right? we’re all clear on this, yes?—but the association this year trumpets “signs of increasing ethnic diversity.” So, take a wild guess at the combined percentage of blacks and Latinos among venture capitalists.
Did you guess two percent? If so, congratulations, you win another several decades of continued de facto exclusion and OMG HOW DARE YOU CALL ME A RACIST push back. (Gawker)
