Looking at this, Apple is over-represented in the Asian population and under-represented in Hispanic, African American and White. Also technically there are 686% more White than black, not 800% b/c you have to not include the original amount when figuring how much more than something there is. The gender off-balance is more of an open question, but it would appear that racially, Apple is at least close to US distribution. I would be more concerned about diversity issues if Apple was 90% White or something like that. White people are not on the same level as Windows market share here, so I don't see a problem there.
So discussion about how to have more women interested in working for Apple could have positive results and there has been a lot of griping about the largely "old white guys" on the board for awhile, so do whatever you want there. Overall, this seems to be a lot of griping about not very much tho.
