Bob Beckel caught up in RNC #NegroSpotting; ‘More blacks in the band’

You would have thought that Clay Aiken’s embrace of the bigoted #NegroSpotting trend during the Republican National Convention would have proved to be the end of that pathetic craze. But look who’s playing now: it’s Bob Beckel of Fox’s “The Five,” The Right Scoop helpfully provides the video.
Bob Beckel: Racism self-evident at RNC, more blacks in the band than entire RNC delegation http://t.co/tz0dDJ1W

Bob Beckel pulling the race card again… There were more black people in the band than blacks at the RNC

We’re not sure what band Beckel was talking about, and we’re not sure he knows either. Perhaps he was watching MSNBC’s whitewash of RNC coverage when he started his tally.
We have to wonder if Bob Beckel will bring his dubious color-counting skills over to his coverage of the overwhelmingly white Democratic National Convention line-up next week.
