Last night I’m watching the RNC on the PBS News Hour. (I love PBS’s Multi-Channel Livestream, by the way) Anyway, as the cameras panned across the RNC convention floor, up and down, I came to a conclusion: Gwen Ifill, of PBS, Herman Cain and Condoleezza Rice were likely the ONLY 3 Black people in the entire arena.
It’s uncanny because no one in the media is reporting anything like this: why? There’s no story about how the GOP is calling out — yelling, actually — that they are the party of inclusion, one big tent, they say, but not a single black face, or any color other than WHITE, is visible anywhere. That’s not a story?
