The diversity gods are angry, and the target of their wrath is (horrors!) Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Painful but true. At a time when candidates with Hispanic surnames and/or a fluency in Spanish are throwing their sombreros in the ring, Clinton is displaying an unconscionable lack of ethnic diversity.
An analysis at the Editor’s Blog of the Washington Free Beacon notes that the pre-screened, hand-picked “everyday Americans” at Clinton’s campaign events tend heavily toward lily-whiteness, a contention the WFB backs up with pictures that “speak for themselves.”
Here are two of the nine photos provided, the first shot at a small business roundtable in Norwalk, Iowa, April 15, 2015, the second an NHTI roundtable in Concord, N.H., April 21, 2015.
Of course, Hillary’s preference for people who look like her hasn’t been picked up on by a left-leaning news source, so she may get a pass after all. Besides, there are plenty of women in these pictures, so she has at least pleased one critical part of her base.
