Your argument does not hold water. This thread is not worth the digital space it takes up.
And I am not a Democrat...
NEWS reporting GIMPING you,
It was MSNBC who decided to omit them. Not the RNC

The fact that we have to make a big deal over having minorities speaking at the RNC speaks volumes. It shouldn't even be news or a discussion. It should be a normal expected thing.
You can argue over the reason why until every tuns blue, but the fact remains that the Republican party lacks diversity.

Who really cares?
The only reason why so many minorities are speaking is because the GOP wants to make it seem like Black people are against Obama too. They are painfully tokennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
It's like when Fox wants to talk about black people or urban issues, then they bring one of their tokens on to discuss it.
And of course black republicans exist, I'm not saying they don't.
Herman Cain, Artur Hawking, Clarence Thomas, Mia Love....
All have been called all kinds of "fun" names ... by the left. Seems the left ONLY cares about tolerance and respect when it's one of "their" minorities....
See the contradiction?
Who brings up race and/or gender every election? Do the GOP folks ever say "white people, you need to vote for us because otherwise all those scary black people and women folk will get all kinds of new powers!"
Does the DNC ever say "black people and women, you need to vote for us because the RNC hates you!"
Which stance shows a higher sense of equality?
- We are not going to mention race or gender because that doesn't mater
- We are going to hammer you with race and gender issues because we think that matters
One says your race and gender DON'T matter, the other says it's THE issue...
Equality is everyone being treated equally, not some groups being treated special over others.

On the first page of this thread, another member pointed out that none of the MSM outlets aired the speeches. The only exception being PBS.
I was watching both MSNBC and FoxNews and neither covered it.
If we apply the same thinking you just mentioned, does this mean the the far Right hates Republicans and FoxNews did not cover the speeches because they want to make the Republicans look racist?
