No, I don’t. There’s no fallacy here. It’s just looking at evidence (or, in this case, a complete absence thereof) and reporting the results.

One cannot derive the presence or absence of cause from a result. For what is perhaps a clearer example, the absence of women in a given profession is insufficient to conclude that there is discrimination against women in that profession.

Similarly, if you have a dominant race and gender, that dominance cannot be used to conclude that there is no active effort to discriminate against that dominant race and gender. It is also possible that the active effort has simply not yet succeeded.

That is all.
