Where was the diversity at the Stewart/Colbert rally?

November 01, 2010

Whether it was a "political revival for the left" or a modern day vaudeville show, the most striking visual of the crowd at the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert gathering on the National Mall was its lily white demographics ("Comedy? Politics? Crowd at 'Sanity' rally sees both," Oct. 31).

Who would have guessed? I thought it was only supposed to be tea party gatherings and Republican conventions that were lacking in diversity.

Actually, this was nothing out of the ordinary for the so-called progressives. After all, Washington, D.C., that bastion of liberalism, is one of the most segregated large cities in America.
