Racism Alive At The RNC

RNC attendee allegedly calls black camerawoman ‘animal,’ throws nuts at her

According to a Tuesday evening Tweet posted by a newsman attending the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., one attendee allegedly threw nuts at a black CNN camerawoman, saying “This is how we feed animals.”

David Shuster, formerly of MSNBC and now a Current TV host, wrote in his Tweet, “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”

The Huffington Post reports that CNN later confirmed an incident had taken place in a statement that read, “CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon… CNN worked with the convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.”

Talking Points Memo reports it is unclear whether the individual who allegedly perpetrated the incident was a delegate to the convention. It notes calls to the RNC and convention officials were not returned.

  1. The wedding is an extremely essential event in the lives of these involved,
    as well as the photographer must remember
    that the photographs aren’t the only purpose of the event. Mix Fashion, Portrait, Genuine and Journalistic Creative Approaches. Queries should capture their own experience, examples of weddings they have chance, information about lighting and using different camcorders.
