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.

  • Rob Stevely

    He must be related to Toure.

  • Ron Rowan

    The Dems love to stir up the race pot, but will they tolerate a conservative black politician?

    • bbgunplinkplink

      they sure as heck didn’t tolerate Herman Cain!

    • http://www.facebook.com/thomas.baranowski1 Thomas Baranowski

      they sure do, lets skip right to the root, maybe reserve the hashtag for civil humans for the DNC bet that one comes in lower than this one!

      • Peggy Saunders Cilano

        Did the GOP get those women to testify against Herman Cain. i don’t know, do you ? It’s possible. I think maybe the Dems got that black women, Anita Hill to testify against Clarence Thomas? I don’t know, did they?

        • jim

          you don’t know much do you

    • http://twitter.com/BenSmull Ben Smull

      No. Just look what happened to Herman Cain, he was short of being nailed to the cross, but as soon as he dropped out of the race, you never never heard another word about sexual harassment claims, gee i wonder why? did anyone else pick up on that? the liberal media was terrified of Herman Cain!

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Of course we picked up on it. My husband and I called it, we knew that we weren’t going to hear anymore from the whore Sharon ‘Buy-a-lick’.

      • jim

        I saw that and I remember when they did that toClarene Thomas,same tactiks they believe true good people can’t be black they are wrong I knowmany black people that I would rather be with then most libs.

    • http://www.facebook.com/babette.aben.cohen Elizabeth Cohen

      Actually they would not. Do you remember what they called Colin Powell before he threw his banner in with the idiot in the house on the hill, the called him an “Uncle Tom”. I think it is the black folks on the hill who have proven to be the most racist, mean spirited people. Even if I agreed one iota with the idiot I would not vote for him, just based on his racist buddies. He is ugly and so are they.

    i’m guessing they still havent grown up. that was for highschool, wasnt it? And im not sure if they see the commercials on bullying. It might help them a bit.

  • http://www.facebook.com/don.e.mikeska Don E. Mikeska

    hell, I like the rebuttals…this guy (councilman???? who the HELL elected you-I can probably guess) is truly yet another racist, racebaiting assclown.

  • http://thehayride.com MacAoidh

    If he calls Mia Love, who speaks in a few minutes, an Oreo, we can start #douchespotting I guess.

    • righthook38

      Just watched Mia Love. She’s awesome!

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      I think the entire Republican constituency would be roaring drunk within the first 10 minutes of the DNC. If they made a drinking game out of it, as these morons have.

      • jim

        very true

  • Johnny Blade

    I’m impressed with the quality of smackdown… is the right finally tired of being spit on and going to start fighting back? I sure hope the trend continues.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.d.baca Mark D. Baca

    I’m blind and can’t see skin color, but some ass on MSNBC is telling the occupyer in the WH is Half black and half white, What he sound idiotic to me. Help me President Romney….

  • http://twitter.com/barbara_huggins Barbara Huggins

    @CouncilmanRice I’ve been #negrospotting the crowds that are at support rallies for Obama. I wonder where they all are?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jennylunney Jenny Allen Lunney

      I love this!!!

    • jim

      they are all at home spotting negros at the RNC thinking they are funny

  • docmacs

    So then at the DNC we should do our own version #commonsensespotting.

    • http://twitter.com/timarm1964 Tim Armstrong

      You’d never get past #1

  • http://twitter.com/CharmaChameleon Dennis Glover

    @JammieWF – try #functioningbrainspotting at the DNC. There may be actual Americans there.

  • Diane Stephan

    How many food stamps do they get if they spot one?

    • jim

      the winner get to sleep in the Lincoln bed at the White House

  • Jane Goodwin

    You aren’t looking very hard then.

    • MPR1776

      Ha, they are using MSNBC’s coverage to do the spotting!

  • Eric Gullett

    Wait until the democratic convention and we start “Cracker” spotting.

  • nc

    Flippin’ bean counters. They can’t intimidate black conservatives who are “out” but it might give pause to those still in the closet. Especially those who support traditional marriage. Think that number is insignificant?

  • Charlotte Powell

    What is wrong with those people? Is there no respect left in America? Is that fundamental change enough for you Obama?? FOOLS!

  • http://www.facebook.com/phil.powers.10 Phil Powers

    Next up: Anti-American spotting. This’ll be easier.

  • $18780199

    Well, Jared Rice, here’s an idea: get your head out of you ass, take a deep breath, and look around and you’ll see Blacks. Word is that at the DNC the only Blacks allowed are located in the restrooms handing out towels. Is that true?

  • djaz

    Racist thugs and nothing more.

  • Stevie

    It’s how the Libs divide us by groups.

  • MovingToNevada

    Well, I know I’ll be busy #moronspotting at the DNC.

    • WingedBishop

      Where’s the challenge in that?

    • jim

      you need to try to find the non-morons thats the challege

  • Joe W.

    Is there a sign prohibiting blacks?? No. If they prefer to vote for the black guy because he’s black, why is that the Republican’s fault? Must really suck to be a liberal and have to resort to this bull shit.

  • http://www.facebook.com/babette.aben.cohen Elizabeth Cohen

    Are these G-d damned people EVER going to grow the F**k up! What is going on here. This is worse than the 1960’s race riots!!! Back then you did not tolerate it and fought for civil rights, now it has become a game of who can be more racist. Well hell I can play, what about the damn stupid “Oreo” in the white house, he’s a muslim and a traitor, hang the bastard!! How is that for a hate filled racist comment?????

    • Isabella1709

      I love it Elizabeth! Ditto!

    And Libs call everyone else racist? LOL

  • Bart

    I do believe he was looking for “Negroes” to tell a family secret, Their grandmothers were dutch! #EPICFAIL

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    I don’t understand why they are called ‘African-American’… I mean, they were all born here, right? How many can actually recall Grandma and Grandpa emigrating to the United States as children….?

    I’m not white, by the way. I’m more of a peachy color. My grandparents lived in Georgia, so I guess I must be a ‘Peach-American’.

    • http://twitter.com/BLeFonque Buckshot LeFonque

      yeah…that makes me a European American, I guess.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        One of the best things I got from my family: No family history. I have no clue what my heritage is, other than I am an American. Thanks Honey, Grandma and Grandpa! (Honey was my great-grandmother!)

        I even fondly refer to myself as a ‘mutt’.

      • pepjrp

        Yes, it does mean you are as being known by a color is not acceptable by any race except for people of European ancestry. I say that I am European American as long as these other terms are popular. As much as I love Michelle Melkin and admire O’Reilly and Hennity, they all African-American us just as often as any left-wing liberals. I guess they all are afraid of being called a racist if they don’t use those terms as often as possible.

        I am a Czech-Austrian-French Canadian-Greek-German-English American, possibly with some Polish, Hungarian, and maybe Turkish or Syrian.

      • Guest

        I’m white and have freckles does that make me half and half? I guess I will be watching the DNC convention and muslimspotting!!!

  • http://twitter.com/BLeFonque Buckshot LeFonque

    Barack Obama has set race relations back in this country by at least a decade. Negrospotting?? I haven’t heard anything that ugly in a long, long time. I am ashamed for my black friends who prefer to be known as Americans.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    The sad part of it is, no one seems to care that the African-American unemployment rate is over 14% and people become feral once they get on welfare. Well, the Dem party is the selfish party. I got mine…”oh, here’s a crumb”…wait, what were we talking about. Good luck with that counting thing, keep your shoes on.

  • Rocky

    HEY COUNCILMAN, DO YOU WORK FOR THE PEOPLE OR FOR ONLY BLACK PEOPLE. YOU ARE A RACIST BUT AS LONG AS YOU RUN IN NEW ROCHELLE YOU WILL KEEP GETTING ELECTED.

  • BeeKaaay

    More proof that leftwingwackos are racist.

  • EclecticHorseman

    The racism is more insidious. The “negro” is a thinly-veiled reference to the old “house negro” slur, meaning the black person who lives with the white folks and ingratiates himself (or herself) to them. One small step away from “Uncle Tom” but all the nastier because it is less obvious.

  • pepjrp

    This type of racism is nothing new that conservatives have dealt with by Black bigots like Rice a Roni for decades. No mention by this clown of the true racism in voting by Black voters who only vote for Obama because he is half Black. So will the Dems have to keep coming up with a Black candidate for the next 50 elections as Black voters will not be happy top go back to a White candidate. They have tasted some negro spotting of their own and want to keep it that way.

    How would you like me to share this with my Black and Latino students tomorrow? What would you like these 50 students to know and understand? I know, I’ll let them figure it out and perhaps write an essay about it and share with their families; ah, now we are in the hundreds of folks.

    Next week, we’ll begin the game of #brainspotting at the Democrat convention in NC.

    We all had hope that racism would diminish, not exponentiate. Let’s short out this racist circuit – my race is HUMAN and my ethnicity is EARTH!

  • Guest

    On NBC? Isn’t that the network that’s refusing to broadcast all speeches by minorities at the RNC?

    There is no way we can honestly know whether they’re taking the same editing liberality they’ve become famous for with all of their coverage.

  • jim

    they are negrespotting for Joe Biden to put them back in chains
