This is the "Speed Bump" cartoon from Sunday. Can anyone explain what's funny, or at least what's supposed to be funny, about it? I don't get it.

At first glance, I think the idea is that the seminar is dedicated to "diversity", yet the audience seems to be primarily an un-diverse groupings of minorities.

Just my guess. It really isn't all that clear.

Fairly obvious to me. Even though it is a diversity conference, the Blacks are sitting with other Blacks; the Whites are sitting with other Whites; the Asians are sitting with Asians, etc. Nobody is mixing and being truly diverse.

Edwin, yeah, good observation. I didn't think of that. Not too obvious, except after you pointed it out. Almost like one of those IQ tests. :)

With the "Diversity Seminar" banner the joke misses because there is actually diversity in the crowd so you're left saying 'I don't get it'

I think the banner should read "Integration Seminar" instead of "Diversity Seminar". That way the joke makes a little more sense.
