Did you spot a non-white person in Romney's crowd?
No, but did you see the two women the camera focused on for a few minutes? Probably late twenties, mid thirties, makeup packed on, false eyelashes, highlighted hair, fake Chanel outfits, and pouts for days.
I saw some Indians (that is India the country, not Native American). Not a surprise; they're the biggest assholes in Asia.
I saw a couple of African- Americans.
But the contrast between Mitt's crowd and the veritable rainbow that was Obama's was undeniable.
I saw one carrying a cheese and fruit tray...
I thought I saw an Asian-looking lady there.

Nah, that was just a middle-aged white woman with a bad facelift.
I saw a few Hispanics, but they were with the cleaning crew - no confetti and balloons to sweep up, but lots of tears to mop up. Those sweet, sweet, tasty tears that I wish to drink from a goblet.
There is a lack of political diversity among non-white people.

Wasn't that the intent of the GOP?
That is the triumph of the Democratic party, R8, and the ultimate failure of the GOP. That the Democratic party could manage to fit so many diverse groups with such different and at times opposing backgrounds and interests under one coalition.
What do Asians have in common with Latinos, with African-Americans, with LGBT people? Really, not much of a fuck lot. They find different issues to be important to them (immigration vs. same-sex marriage vs. education, etc.) But they all break Democrat.
That the GOP has managed to alienate all of them is a severe failure and miscalculation on its part.

Don't Indian Americans and Korean Americans tend to vote Republican, generally speaking?
I noticed that in event after event of Romney's closing campaign. Behind the podium, 99% white with hardly any young people. At Obama's events, diversity was on display everywhere you looked.
They were seated in the back according to te seating plan.
There are no non-white people in Country Music.
I forgot about the help - they were there.
One of the waiters was black.
My Consuela was there. Someone had to serve the punch.
What color is Rafalca?
Rumor has it Cowboy Troy was brought in.
The problem is, they didn't move him around fast enough to keep up with the TV cameras, so few saw him.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
