Black Doctors and Asian Doctors

I watch television, not a lot just the average. When the series Grey's Anatomy debuted I noticed something new. Grey's Anatomy was one the first hospital dramas with an major Asian doctor character. This show has 3 black doctors to 1 Asian. In reality there are 3 times as many Asian doctor as black doctors in the US, see study.

Maybe TV doctor demographics are more a reflection of actor demographics than a reflection the US doctor population.
