It says this: "The trend is slow, but it's clear: Congress is getting a bit less white and a bit less male"

And the Washington Post is 100% a garbage wrapper. Who would waste time digging into such useless information? What does it matter, even if it is true?

78% of the public is white, if including white Hispanics in the racial ratio. 50% of citizens are male. 77% of Americans identify as Christian. Looks like the Congress represents a fairly close percentage with the population in USA.

Let's drum the White Christians out of government for sure, look at how great it's working for France.

I'm trying to think of minority white legislatures I'd rather have...Aside from the Japanese Diet, none come to mind.

Makeup more or less reflects America. What is controversial (Politics & other Controversies CD board) about this? Congress' makeup is changing, as it should to reflect what is America. Nothing controversial about that.
