Racial weight of images in Wine Spectator

I decided to double-check the images in Wine Spectator, just to reassure myself I wasn't crazy. Here are the results from the 6 issues I pulled out of our recycling bin:
WhiteBlackAsianLatino/aIndianAndroidAmbiguousTotal% whiteb/w %

4% black/white is a lot higher than the 1% I'd estimated, but the figure is still unimpressive.
