'The crowd, however, was overwhelmingly white' Journo-judges select color of skin over content of character.

"A relatively dense and overwhelmingly white crowd stretched from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial out past the Washington Monument. Thousands strained to hear Beck and his most prominent guest, Sarah Palin, because they couldn’t get in range of the massive TV screens and speakers surrounding the Reflecting Pool.
  • A friend of mine walked the whole stretch of the rally and
  • counted 27 African-Americans -- three of them were onstage giving speeches.
  • I could count the number I saw on my fingers." Salon.com, M. Benjamin, 8/28
"appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall"...AP, 8/28
  • "The crowd, however, was overwhelmingly white. "...Cleveland.com, Washington bureau, 8/28
"Meanwhile, many in the predominantly white crowd bent over backward
  • to insist that they are not racists"...Politico, Hohmann, 8/28
UPDATE: "Carlos in DC": "Shocking video evidence of rampant Tea Party racism and violence,"
