San Francisco (CNN) — Wayne Sutton has been asking venture-capital investors and Silicon Valley executives a question that’s not often broached here in the epicenter of the technology industry:

“Why aren’t there more black people in tech?”

The vast majority of top executives at the leading Silicon Valley tech firms are white men. Women and Asians have made some inroads, but African-American and Latino tech leaders remain a rarity. About 1% of entrepreneurs who received venture capital in the first half of last year are black, according to a study by research firm CB Insights.

  1. yeah they proaply do

  2. Yes!! There has got to be someone in the African American community smart enough to build a site and get some of the business like FB and Google and Microsoft get from African Americans. We post our business on these sites and buy products from the advertisements on their sites yet we cannot get support from them. Where are the rich rappers, actors and actresses’ in the public eye that think they are all that? Football, basketball players? Stop selling out they don’t, and lets get it together!
