This is why journalism needs more diversity

I'd love to know the racial demographics of Bloomberg Businessweek, because I guarantee a staff with blacks and Latinos would have caught this before it was too late:

It's not just the black and Latino caricatures—the whole cover plays into the widely-debunked myth that unreliable minority borrowers were responsible for the financial crash. As Ryan Chittum notes for the Columbia Journalism Review, the truth is that they were disproportionately victimized by unscrupulus lenders. This cover, however, all but implies that minorities are primed to cause another crisis. It's garbage.
