2013: President Obama’s Cabinet, a Diversity Breakdown

2013: President Obama’s Cabinet, a Diversity Breakdown

Obama’s current cabinet:
11 white males
6 white females
2 Black males (Clinton = 7, Bush = 3)
1 Hispanic male
1 Asian male
1 Black female (Clinton = 2, Bush = 1)
0 Hispanic females

(even though FCC + FHFA are technically not “cabinet” level they are in this count)

15 men. 7 women. President Obama is done with his cabinet picks. Do they represent America? Is he ahead or behind George W and Bill Clinton when it comes to diversity. The President has three years and a half to go. He has plenty of time to time to pass President Clinton on the issue of cabinet diversity.  The chart below pretty much says it all:
