"RNC Attendee Allegedly Threw Nuts At CNN Cameraperson, Said ‘This Is How We Feed Animals’"


If I saw this headline...I would immediately think "Hmmm...why would they call a camera operator an animal???"

Then I would go and look into it...and when I found that the camera operator was black...I would say, "Yep..that makes sense...no surprise that there are racist at the GOP convention". Honestly...any person who is aware of hte state of racism in this country would pretty much already know that the person was black...a Republican calling someone an "animal"...it's sad..but that is exactly what I would think.

Racism exist in this world...let's not bury our heads in the sand and ignore racism where it is blatantly obvious.


I honestly don't know what is worse...the fact that something like this happens in 2012...or the fact that so many people are trying to deny it happened or was racially motivated.

Very Dissapointing.

I think a lot of people really don't care and are tired of constantly hearing the racist card being played.

I mean what's the difference between this and a white person doing the same to another white person, or a black person to another black person? Would you care as much then? No. So if we're supposed to see everyone as the same, why should we care now? Why can't you just suck it up and forget such a trivial issue like everyone does in every other circumstance?

Most normal people, if someone threw nuts at them and called them an animal, would hardly get any media or internet attention and they would get over it in 5 minutes... but this is a big deal somehow and everyone must pay attention to this for some reason.

Not buying it.

Oh...I'm so sorry you are tired of hearing about racism.

You know what...I bet minorities are tired of experiencing racism.


But if it bothers you...then maybe we should just ask everyone who experiences racism to just please keep it to yourself...because you are upsetting people talking about it.

"racism card" lol, sorry i had to laugh since it is clearly an attempt to devalue the seriousness of racism with a term meant to discard its validity in a discussion.

Completely changing the context of the situation, and the meaning of the actions involved, is not a valid argument.

Well guess what?

I could really care less if someone "experiences racism" or is offended by some stupid little thing like having nuts thrown at them, because I've dealt with the same crap as everyone else my entire life.

Yea that's the whole point, if by changing up the races you change the context then isn't that the same thing?

Of course not, because apparently only whites can commit racism. That's racism in itself.

And there we have it, the feelings of other people do not matter to you because you "have dealt with crap".

Grow up, man up and deal with it like everyone else.

I am dealing with it, by discussing it. Maybe you should try it, instead of just ignoring reality.

Well good for you.


But guess what...no one cares what you dealt with...see how that works???


Racism still exist in this country...when I see it...I'm gonna call it out. I really don't care if you are tired of hearing about it.

But you and Outkast would rather poke little insults, tell me I'm ignoring reality and make eye roll emoticons while you star each other silly.

I never asked you to care about anything regarding me, in fact I don't want anyone to. I already know full well how it works because that's how *most* of the world works.

By calling racism every time someone throws nuts at someone else, you are doing nothing other than promoting racism. Real racism isn't calling names and throwing nuts.

No you aren't.

You very clearly said you want the discussion to stop. You are tired of hearing about it...you don't want to hear about it anymore.

That isn't exactly trying to discuss the issue...that is trying to shut down discussion of the issue.

No, you are not discussing it, you just say "why should we care, i don't."

As for OutKast, well he does love his emoticons.

The campaign in disarray , the convention attendees are just going thru the motions, and now all the moderate Republicans are beginning to question the leadership. I can't wait for the debates.

I have green money that says Mitt will chicken out.


The campaign is not in disarray (except maybe for that Secret Service guy who left his piece on the plane) but is merely being battered by the battering ram of the DNC operatives. It's not like it doesn't happen every election cycle.

Oh by the way, doesn't Condi look nice in Peach? I think it's a good color for her, and her speech was pretty nifty too. Susanna Martinez is pretty classy too.
Maybe Obama will get Valerie Jarrett to speak at his convention.


Speaking of debates, will the Prez be allowed to use his teleprompter?

That's really over the top and you are just plain full of it. This admin has advanced more racist nonsense than we've had since before JFK. I'm pretty sick of it. He said he wanted to unite and all he's done is be divisive. He is the most divisive Prez I've ever seen. For the record I think it's about marxist class and race warfare. The Prez uses both liberally and a lot of people are really seeing through it.

So Obama is "real racism"?? Figures it was the fault of Obama.

BTW, if you wish to discuss Obama, feel free to send a u2u as he, and his perceived divisiveness, is off topic in this thread.

No I've said it already, and since all you all have made race an issue here, I think it's only fair that someone poke holes in your theory. Again, the Democrat Party is all about race and class warfare and socialism. Leftist radicals have dominated the Democrat Party. What better way to make people glom on to their Party than to tell everybody the Republicans are just a bunch of racist selfish pigs?
I'm really just showing you what the Democrats are doing, why they are doing it, and why things like this are happening. They did it to the Tea Party when they completely fabricated that whole incident where the guy claimed Tea Partiers spit on him.
Marxists in the 30's saw that they could exploit racial issues concerning blacks and it has continued. The Prez is quite steeped in this stuff from his days with marxist mentor Frank Marshall Davis and other people in his life. Leftist radicals have turned the Democrat Party into a de facto socialist party bordering on communnism.
All you have to do is look at who Obama has had around him. Jarrett, Axelrod, Bill Ayers, Van Jones.....

I have a question, was there any more news on if the person in fact meant it in the context of race? Or is everyone still assuming that since the camera woman was black and the word "animal" was used?

Since you like to throw around the proof word so much Outkast, this is a good one for you. PROVE the word animal was meant in the context of race.
