Diversity in the Minor Leagues

There are roughly 145 minor league players in the Twins organization. As I look at the Twins current players - I found these approximate numbers:
96 Players - White 66%
40 Players - Hispanic / Latino 28%
06 Players - African American 4%
03 Players - Asian 2%
Does anyone know how these numbers correlate with the rest of the (MLB) league? This has the Twins with at least 34% of their MiLB players being minorities. What happened to all the African American baseball players in America?
It was fun watching the Cedar Rapids players getting along so well and playing as a team. Coach Mauer did an excellent job of bringing his diverse ball club together and playing as professionals. They seem to have genuine love for each other. I'm excited to see these players grow into future Twins at the MLB level.
