Are you sure the sample size of your survey for favorite black people and favorite commentator is big enough to carry statistical significance?
In all seriousness though, 1000 is a pretty small sample size, I thought the average was about 5000 to lower the chance of anomalies?

China, India, Pakistan Philippines etc. have a little smartphone penetration due to the fact that average people cannot afford one. They only earn average salary of $100-300 monthly so a
$40-100 cellphone is enough for them. As long as they can call and txt, thats all that matters.
