4. That is a HORRIBLE thing to say
made even more horrible by the fact that last night I myself said "The people at the door who let her in must have thought she was there to serve drinks." :o

10. Either in 2000 or 2004
I remember reading an interview with a Black GOP delegate who was complaining that everywhere he went at the convention, all the White people assumed he was "the help." At the hotel, they asked him to carry his bags, at the convention to get them refills, etc. It didn't matter that he was dressed in a very nice suit instead of some kind of uniform, which the staff at hotels and events would wear. They couldn't see past his color.

2. They kept displaying the same six black people in the arena over and over.
The media fascists were desperate to show that the RNC really didn't look like a Klan rally.

Of course, when the same media fascists were broadcasting the DNC, they couldn't stop showing pictures of overweight black people, as if to show that only black people were for Obama...

3. Because black people aren't allowed to think for themselves?
I'm sorry, but racial restrictions on people's political viewpoints is bullshit. It's no worse for a black person than for a white person to be a Republican.

7. They had a lot of white women speaking.
I wondered about them too. I kept thinking they're trying a little too hard to show us how "diverse" they are.

6. White or black - I can't understand why anyone who makes under 100K a year was there. NT

8. Why just Black Women?
As an AA male, I was disgusted to see ANY people of color there
