It seems at least one other #nn13 panel was similarly afflicted:

In comparison to these panels, even Paula Deen’s staff looks diverse:

One tweeter saw it coming:

Alas, the Netroots Nation staff is “whiter than an albino ghost at a KKK rally.”

Someone call a Civil Rights attorney!

What exactly do progressives have against people of color, anyway?

    Next time there is a meeting that has no white people, can we run around screaming about lack of diversity?

      You mean the Congressional Black Caucus?

        nothing screams “we are all the same” like dividing people up by skin tone, or ethnic origin.

  • CombatDiver

    Why are they so racist and intolerant? They are anti-Caucasian.

    • Elaine

      Plus they all have “Conservaphobia!” (we can make up a hate word, too)

  • V the K

    See, while conservatives are concerned about trillion-dollar deficits, a stagnant economy, and preserving freedom for another generation or two… the left is freaking because someone forgot to invite the tokens to their drum circles.

    • fred2


      True, but still “Ouch!”

    • Catchance

      “Drum circles”! Oh, snort!

    Look at their amazing diversity! White and slightly less white!

    New promo for FoxNews: “Hannity—as diverse as a Netroots Nation panel! Make the switch to Fox!”

    • MissJames

      Did you catch Hannity last night? He had an all black audience panel of conservatives and it was awesome. My husband and I are white ,have 7 kids,4 are adopted and 3 of those are black males . I’m sensitive to the way they are treated differently in stores and restaurants ,etc( and they often are treated w/ suspicion), but we are raising them in a conservative home.Last night Hannity gave me HOPE,real hope . Everyone has the opportunity to create their own American Dream ,if the government would just get out of our way!

      • CO2 Producer

        No, I had to drop cable a while back. It was getting way too expensive for me. Regarding last night’s Hannity, how timely. I feel bad now for equating Hannity to Netroots Nation.

        • MissJames

          Hannity started the show referring to his audience as African-Americans and they objected to the term quite vocally. Called it self-segration coined by Jesse Jackson and they refused to be put in that box.
          It was a great show and a good reminder of what the US is supposed to be for every citizen. It’s the melting pot that makes us stronger ,IMO.
          One interesting point was made,though and it shows up in this story; the black community doesn’t show up at events like this,or Occupy Wallstreet,etc……

          • CO2 Producer

            Video from last night’s Hannity is on the Fox News website now. It can be found on YouTube, too. I intend to check it out sometime this weekend.

    More importantly, they allow even less diversity of opinion.

  • Glitter

    My gosh, that conference sounds like a bore. Those people are bores, too.

    • Garth Haycock

      They’re also boors.

  • Bui van vat

    White people! They’re everywhere! They don’t even know they’re white!

    • Marcy Cook

      Stop you’re scaring me.

  • Rulz

    If white people vote democrat, they sometimes think that’s enough. They don’t actually HAVE to be pro-active in being diverse, helping poor people or wondering about the welfare of foreigners and prisoners or keeping the environment nice and clean.

    No sir, they’ve done their duty and have been cleansed of the heredity sin of slavery (even though it’s 98% likely none of of their colonial ancestors owned Black slaves from Africa, and that’s a # from a study, not a guess).

    PS–I’m an environmental scientist, and conservatism is the best thing that could happen to our surroundings.

    • Catchance

      Bill Whittle calls it “unearned moral superiority”.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        Un-earned and imaginary moral superiority.

    • Ntr

      White liberals love diversity from afar. They’d break down and have a panic attack if they had to physically be in any ‘inner city’ area to physically help people out. Besides their fear of brown people they fear, even moreso, dirtying up their “higher-end” clothing. The same goes for their similar classist disdain for anyone rural. So that’s why they typically clean up city parks in their own safe neighborhoods.

      White liberals are disgusting people. Conservation to them is another fashion to wear on their sleeve and not a life like most of the rest of us. I agree with you. Conservatism and environmentalism are natural partners and always have been.

      • MissJames

        Couldn’t agree with you more. Why do you think they want the government to do everything instead of volunteering w/churches and ministries that are hands on?
        We were foster parents for many years and the other foster parents we met were never liberals. Never.

  • Hellpig

    Those are not white people they are “RED” through and through

    That SooperMexican guy has skills. I’m following his tweets. BTW, he posted the absolute best Obama shooting gun parody ever! Gotta see it. Make sure it’s the high-speed version. It’ll have you in stitches!

  • $6565218

    Their diversity is at home LtheirMFA’sO at them and collecting free stuff while these yahoo’s sing Kumbaya and vote liberal.

  • John Alvarado

    I think there are more minorities at tea party rallies than environment conferences.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    The progressives can relax.

    While there was, in fact, zero “diversity” on the all white environmental panel, I have it on good authority that no one on the panel was a Conservative or a Jew.

  • Ntr

    Nothing better than “calling out” the left for their racial exclusion and unfriendly atmosphere for minorities at their events. I mean, they’re big fans of calling out people over their “liberal” definition of racism so make them live up to their own standards and sets of rules whenever possible.

  • masscraft

    So, do all groups need to ensure they have at least one minority? Then, of course, they’ll be accused of tokenism.

  • Wilkins Micawber

    Not that I hold much truck with these lib fools, but why are black, hispanic and asian groups always given a pass on their lack of “diversity”?

    • MrSnuggles2k2

      “diversity” means not white.

  • Jeffrey Lamela

    If they start offering free stuff at these things they will have plenty of “diversity”.

  • Marcy Cook

    Isn’t it raaaaacist to complain that non-whites don’t give sh*t about your environmental issues.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Isn’t it strange that the people who lecture others the most about “diversity”, actually practice it the least?

  • LegalizeShemp

    They are never interested in ideological diversity, they are not “open-minded and tolerant” enough for that.

  • Dane Gunderson

    environmental caucus… is Weiner(D) a… member?

  • KansasGirl

    What a bunch of “jerks” in that “circle”
    Think about it.
