27 Percent Of Democratic Convention Delegates Are African-Americans


Now to balance this post I want my readers to know that the GOP did have a diverse crowd on the convention floor—both for building the set, and tearing it down!  They also let African-Americans sing and play musical instruments during the convention.

The Democrats, though, actually have a diverse number of delegates.

There are 5,556 delegates and 407 alternates at the Democratic National Convention. 50 percent are women.  27 percent are African-Americans. 285 are currently students. The oldest delegate – Elzena Johnson, of Terry, Miss. -was born in 1914. The youngest delegate – Samuel Gray, of Marion, Iowa – was born in 1994

    Congrats, as only 12.6 of the US is African-American this makes for a disproportional impact. I suspect that some cause should take this up as this party has a better chance of benefiting a specific race vs society as a whole.

  2. You have finally discovered the conspiracy theory! There it is being so coy as it plays out on live national television. You must be proud that your intellect was able to ferret this out for all to know.
