This from ABC news. But Google for other images of Mass in Philadelphia and notice how white the congregation is.

That not too many U.S. Catholics are black is something I have known for a long time.

Nonetheless, it was quite striking to watch TV coverage of Pope Francis’ Mass in Philadelphia today and see the sea of white faces — especially since I, like so many, know that Philadelphia has quite a few blacks. I just looked it up. Whites, at 42%, are a minority! 43% of the population is Black or African American. Well that certainly was not the case at this Mass — or for that matter what will be the case on Sunday’s Mass.

Only 3% of U.S. Catholic’s are black.
