The minority population of the United States is approximately 32 percent." Schiller responds: "I couldn't agree more that NPR must increase the diversity of its staff -- particularly in management and editorial." || Schiller's letter to NABJSchiller's letter to NABJ || NPR staff compositionNPR staff composition
