"We Need More White People"

That is what was heard at a Michelle Obama campaign event.

Via: The Tartan student newspaper: While the crowd was indeed diverse, some students at the event questioned the practices of Mrs. Obama’s event coordinators, who handpicked the crowd sitting behind Mrs. Obama. The Tartan’s correspondents observed one event coordinator say to another, “Get me more white people, we need more white people.” To an Asian girl sitting in the back row, one coordinator said, “We’re moving you, sorry. It’s going to look so pretty, though.”

“I didn’t know they would say, ‘We need a white person here,’ ” said attendee and senior psychology major Shayna Watson, who sat in the crowd behind Mrs. Obama. “I understood they would want a show of diversity, but to pick up people and to reseat them, I didn’t know it would be so outright.”

Politics as usual but I think that Jeralyn is right. If someone from Hillary's campaign demanded more black people, this would be covered 24/7 by the cable news and all over network news. All we'd hear about was how racist and manipulative the Clinton camp is.

What do you think?

Everyone knows that the crowds behind candidates at events are often staged. And if you don't, and think the rainbow, multigenerational, mixed-gendered (or not) coaltions that just happened to be like that, then you are fooling yourself.

The difference b/t the Obama camp and the Clinton camp is that her camp wasn't dumb enough to get caught...or folks just don't care enough to report it from her. There are plenty of other things to talk about how manipulative the Clintons are when it comes to race.

I think modern politics is TV with the sound turned off.

Yeah maybe or maybe not. Depends on what else is on the news. Depends on whether or not you have a YouTube video. Depends on who said it.

Take the example of the McSame surrogate introduced McSame by comparing Barack Obama to Tiger Woods.

Who cares about some podunk village trustee when you got a Republican nominee for president who thinks all black people look the same?

Next thing you know, he'll get Shi'ites confused with Sunnis?

P.S. Getting back to the importance of background faces, who TF is the guy in the black Resistol cowboy hat standing behind McSame in the video? Little Bill Daggett?
