Paul Ryan shared this selfie to Instagram on Sunday and it got a lot of attention, but not for its “record number of #CapitolHill interns”. Take a quick survey of the crowd and you’ll see a sea of very white faces.
Just a few of the comments:
“Perhaps all the blacks are off camera on the far left?”
“This isn’t about presidential canidates (sic). This is about an internship program being entirely white in a place like Washington DC where 50.7% of the people are black. Its about unequal opportunity in the epicenter of our country. I find it atrocious.”
“This sums up the problem with the GOP. It’s like looking at 1950s America. I guess this is what making America Great Again looks like.”
“And people have said the GOP is the party of bigoted white guys. Now WHERE could anyone have gotten SUCH a strange idea?”
