According to news reports, two RNC attendees threw nuts at a black CNN camerawoman and yelled at her "this is how we feed animals".
The incident happened on Tuesday in the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where delegates officially nominated Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate to face President Barack Obama in the November presidential election.
As of the time of this post, the identities of the individuals have not been named and there is no additional details besides confirmation of the incident.
If the allegations are true, what these men/women did is wrong. No ifs ands or buts about it. But to automatically assume the incident occurred because of racism is not necessarily fair. A lot of Conservatives don’t trust the media and because she was a camerawoman, that may have more to do with it.
Earlier this month, the media was harrassing Chick-fil-A workers in an attempt to get statements out of them. The cops were called. Again, no excuse for throwing nuts at a person… but we do not know if the camerawoman was in any way provocating an incident.
