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?
