MSNBC's newest race code-word
Clearly, the pundits at MSNBC are being driven mad by the success of the GOP convention, particularly Paul Ryan's barn-burner Wednesday night. When desperate that the message of limited govenrment and opportunity is connecting with the American public, they resort to the last, worn-out, obsolete weapon in their arsenal: the race card.
Last night, they really stretched, and offered a novel theory, that the city of Chicago is actually a code word for black. See for yourself:
For the record:
The racial makeup of the city in 2010 was 32.9% black, 31.4% white, 28.9% Hispanic of any race, 5.5% Asian, 0.5% Native American, and 2.7% from two or more races. In 2000, 21.7% of the population was foreign born; of this, 56.3% came from Latin America, 23.1% from Europe, 18.0% from Asia and 2.6% from other parts of the world
