what's the mysterious trip to new york, huh?

a topic request for you to wax wise about:

i was reading coverage in the philadelphia inquirer on mayor nutter's "philly clean up" thing, where thousands of people came out to clean up trash in the city. a lovely-ly (i made that word up) reported little piece(http://www.philly.com/inquirer/home_top_stories/20080405_Raking_like_a_man_possessed__49-year-old_Dennis_McNeil_NO_HEAD_SPECIFIED.html), in my humble. but as descriptive as it was, i found myself wondering what the ethnicities were of the people who came out to do the clean-up. the reporter didn't include that info on a broad level, though it seems he made an effort to include names/types of peeps from different groups.
so a few questions:

- why did i wonder this?
- is it wrong for me to wonder this?
- if it's not wrong, and a normal question to have, then why don't reporters include the info in their stories?
