commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

New GOP Pledge feature has few..if any… black’s in promo’s….

Was that a mistake?

Or done on purpose?

Hummmmm?

A No Diversity Pledge

Political Wire reader spent time looking at the photos included in the GOP’s Pledge to America:

“I counted 42 photos with people in them, and in only two are there African-Americans — and they’re tiny specks in a much larger group, barely visible. There are maybe two identifiable people of Asian descent and no one who might be considered Latino. Basically almost all whites in the Pledge, hundreds of them, with barely any noticeable minorities. Most telling is the large auditorium featured on page 12 — a crowd of maybe 300 and only if you look hard toward the back do you see someone who might be African American.”

  1. Hey jb!
    You’re running two sites now? 🙂

    I suspect the all-white rebublican pledge is a reflection of the world they live in – mentally and neigborhoodwise. Probably an unconscious but telling aspect – just they way they see the “real” america..
