Comments: Black delegates at 2004 RNC double the number of 2000

Even a bursting dam starts out as a mere crack through which only a trickle flows.

Hmm...167 blacks is still not even 6% of the total attendees. Not impressed. And where are the Asian-Americans and Muslim Americans?

You don't need to be impressed.

You can stay comfortably on the Democratic "plantation."

Considering that blacks only accounted for about 2% of total ballots cast for George W. Bush in 2000, blacks are arguably overrepresented here. It should also be noted that the RNC doesn't have the Democrats' delegate quota scheme for its convention.
