I’ve been enjoyably blown away by the diversity at the convention. No picture of a group is of all white folk. Or all black folk. Everyone is all mixed up, with brown, red and yellow in the mix as well. I love it when the camera pans the room.
The speakers are also all mixed up. One after the other on the podium, young, old, black, white, other, women, men, rich, poor, elected officials, just folks. The people in charge of each session – same deal. It sure looks like America.
No need to even speculate about the Republican convention. Rich old white guys showcasing here and there a women, a minority, a youth. Just sad. And not much about America.
It’ll be interesting to see how Sarah Palin plays out. Looks like a ringer to me.
