I'm using a source, can you see if this makes sense.. It's just a piece of my report I'm writing

According to Deisinger, at the last two Project Connect events, KCPRI provided services to over 1,500 participants. The racial breakdown for their November, 2012 event was 45.2 percent were black, and 47 percent were white. This was a 12.6 percent increase for black people and a 2.4 percent decrease for white people in 2011.

    I assume you've identified KCPRI earlier in the story. I hope you've also identified Project Connect and why you're reporting racial statistics.

    What is the purpose of your story? I'm concerned about this racial breakdown. What about mixed-race people? Is a person black just because his skin is a little darker than the typical "white?"

    Also -- your statistics don't add up. 47 + 45.2 = 92.2%. Kalamazoo doesn't have any significant population of Asians or native Americans. Are you considering Hispanics as a separate race? How do you account for the nearly 8% discrepancy in percentages?

    Edited version

    According to Deisinger, at the last two Project Connect events, KCPRI provided services to over 15 hundred participants. The racial breakdown for their November, 2012 event was
    • The percentage black residents, 45.2 percent, which is a 12.6 percent increase from 2011.
    • The percentage of white residents, 47.2 percent, which is a 2.4 percent decrease from 2011.

    7.2% were all others.. I didn't put that in there since my lead is black and white..
