Mostly White?

Smart comment from a Kos reader:
Funny how the press mentions that Dean's crowds are "mostly white", without saying the same for Bush's fundraisers which are 99% white. Or the Republican Congress which is, what, 99.4% white, .4% Latino, .2% Native American, 0% Black?

P.S. If a diverse group reflecting the exact ethnic percentages of Americans showed up (12% Black, etc.), the crowd could still be correctly characterized as "mostly white", so what does that mean anyway?
