The black CNN camerawoman who two Republican National Convention attendees pelted with nuts, saying “that’s how we feed animals,” has been revealed as Patricia Carroll, 34. The Alabama native spoke out, saying that the incident didn’t surprise her “at all.”
“This is Florida and I’m from the Deep South. You come to places like this, you can count the black people on your hand. They see us doing things they don’t think I should do,” Patricia Carroll, 34, told the Maynard Institute.
After the attendees threw nuts at her and said, “This is how we feed animals,” Carroll told colleagues and CNN security about the incident. In a separateinterview with Witches’ Brew, Carroll said the incident occurred around 3 p.m. Tuesday. She looked up and saw two men throwing peanuts at her, she said. The head of the delegation of an unidentified state told her the nut-throwers were likely not delegates, according to the Maynard Institute report.
Patricia Carroll is based in CNN’s Washington, D.C. bureau. To the RNC’s credit, they ejected the two racist delegates, but I would venture to say, there are many more like them still in the Republican Party.
