The RNC looks like a White People Convention

I know I’m not the only one watching the Republican National Convention and saying, “Are there only white people in the audience tonight?  I thought the Republicans have said they have a diverse party make up?”. I saw about 9 black people, 2 Asian people, one dark skinned Indian woman behind Cindy McCain, and about 10 people who I can’t say what they are.  Other than that the RNC is just a sea of White people, mostly in suits.  So this is what the ruling class looks like?!?!  Must be nice.

Sure, call me a racist for pointing it out, but the DNC was much more diverse.  It actually looked like MY America.  An America filled with all kinds of people.

I’m just saying, I’m a black woman and I notice these things.  Thompson threw them some red meat, at least.
