I'm watching the RNC convention and am looking for black faces but am hard pressed to find them. They say this is called #negrospotting lol.—

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.
Not everyone is on board, fortunately.
