If the world really was like prime time American television, then the world would be:

– Half the population would be white men.

– Five percent of the population would be black men.

– Just 1.9 percent of the world would be Asian or Latino men.

– Overall, 57 percent of the population would be men.

– 34 percent of the world would be white women

– 3.8 percent would be African-American women

– 3.8 percent would be Latino or Asian women

– 31.8 percent of the population would work for the police or some sort of federal law enforcement agency.

– 9.7 percent of us would be doctors.

– 2.6 percent of us would be criminals.

-1.9 percent would be supernatural creatures or robots.
