Regarding the pro-union protests in Wisconsin, a damned good question:
BTW...in no MSM coverage I have seen is there ANY note that the crowd is "predominantly white".... Why is that?
Compare to MSM coverage of the Tea Party, which dissected its demographics to the point of an obsessive compulsion. What can possibly account for the mainstream media's disinterest in the diversity of pigmentation in the pro-union crowds demonstrating against Republicans in Wisconsin? I am baffled and mystified, and cannot imagine why this question would not be of great interest, just as it was during the summer Tea Party rallies.
Wisconsin is about 6 percent black, so about 1 in 16 in those crowds should be black, for a proportional representation.
Milwaukee, which has the largest concentration of blacks, is just 77 miles from Madison.
