New Rochelle councilman now engaging in #negrospotting at GOP convention

So this is post-racial America, huh? Jared Rice, a city councilman and NAACP member from New Rochelle, N.Y., is now playing a game he calls #negrospotting as he views coverage of the Republican National Convention.

Amusing? We’re not sure how amusing it would be if a conservative started a similar hashtag. Keep in mind that “The Grio” is “the official NBC News community devoted [to] perspectives that affect and reflect the African-American community.” Is there no end to the #NBCFail?

If comedian Baratunde Thurston is interested in those numbers, he’s not showing it with his tweets.

The “I see white people” game has previously enthralled celebrity players such as Mia Farrow and members of Congress, and now the media seem anxious to take a turn.

Not everyone is on board, fortunately.
