According to the 2011 census, 3.5% of the population of England is black. 6 black managers out of 72 in the football league is over 8% (and even including the premiership that is still 6.5%), so there doesn't appear to be a lack of representation.
Women and Asian people on the other hand are a different story.
Nottingham Forest have appointed Chris Hughton as their new manager after sacking Sabri Lamouchi.
Forest have lost their first four Championship games of the season, with Saturday's 2-1 loss to Bristol City leaving them 22nd in the table.
They failed to win any of their last 10 league games under Lamouchi, collapsing spectacularly at the end of last season to miss out on the play-offs.
Hughton, 61, has taken his first job since leaving Brighton in 2019.
The former Tottenham and Republic of Ireland defender spent more than four years with the Seagulls, leading them to promotion from the Championship in 2017 and then keeping them in the Premier League for the following two seasons.
But he was dismissed in May 2019 after a poor second half of 2018-19 had seen them narrowly avoid relegation.
Prior to his time with Brighton, Hughton had spells as manager of Newcastle, Birmingham and Norwich.
He is the 13th full-time managerial appointment by Forest since Billy Davies' first spell at the club ended in the summer of 2011.
