“Negro Spotting” Popular Democrat Twitter Game Among Party Members Watching RNC
Every four years political junkies, spectators and commentators tend to point out the lack of racial diversity on the floor at the Republican National Convention.
Now Twitter users, whose influence in black culture has been well-documented, is getting into the act — with a not very subtle hashtag: #negrospotting
“#negrospotting at #GOP2012 update. of the 89 negroes spotted so far, only 20 are confirmed GOP (non-media, security, vendors). #staytuned,” tweeted comedian Baratunde Thurston.
Thurston later admitted that the BET tent at the RNC might have “inflated his numbers.”
Are you watching the Republican convention? And if so, how many African-Americans have you spotted?
