Are there any black food critics writing for major papers? What about other minorities? Is there any way to research this? Thanks!

Dorothy Gaiter at the Wall Street Journal. She's a pretty major figure in food and wine writing these days.

That is a hard question.
There is the Association of Food Journalists which might be worth emailing with the question. But even then - that sort of data seems unlikely to have been compiled in one spot.
Do you actually know of any yourself ? - if so, email and ask them.
Maybe it's more along the lines of sociology than food critic information - just musing out loud here. I will be interested to see if someone can provide a definitive resource.
There's labor data and census data but I'm not sure if/how to drill down.

I would try the National Association of Black Journalists. They should be able to search their directory for you.
