Two attendees at the Republican National Convention were thrown out of the convention center in Tampa on Tuesday after throwing nuts at a black CNN camerawoman and saying, “this is how we feed the animals.” It’s beyond ridiculous that these things still happen all of the time. It just usually doesn’t make national news.
CNN reported that multiple witnesses saw it happen, and police immediately removed the two people from the premises. Former MSNBC and Current host David Shuster, who is attending the convention, tweeted about the incident earlier on Tuesday:
GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying “This is how we feed animals.”
Talking Points Memo then reached out to CNN, which confirmed that an incident had taken place in a statement it later sent to The Huffington Post.
“CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon,” the statement read. “CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.”
There was no immediate mention of the attack on CNN’s air.
The convention condemned the incident in a statement, saying, “Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”
My thoughts and prayers go out to the woman that those idiots tried to humiliate. What they are too stupid to realize is that instead of humiliating her, they showed everyone that they are the animals. Jack Asses to be exact. My people are a proud and beautiful people and what we’ve learned from past experiences like this one, is to keep our head high, persevere and succeed despite all odds. The best revenge is success. Don’t believe me?

Am I making my point? No matter the color of your skin, your sexual orientation, religion, class, gender etc. we all will be faced with adversity, prejudice and ignorance. Be strong, persevere and don’t sink to their level. We are all beautiful.
