White republicans throwing peanuts at a black CNN camera woman? “We know how to treat animals,” one report had a convention member say.
“I can’t change these people’s hearts and minds,” [Patricia]Carroll told Journal-isms. “No, it doesn’t feel good. But I know who I am. I’m a proud black woman. A lot of black people are upset. This should be a wake-up call to black people… . People were living in euphoria for a while. People think we’re gone further than we have.”
Carroll says she hopes the story goes away.
“I was hoping this story would go away,” she said. “I’m not interested in talking to any other media about this.”
In her interview with Journal-isms Carroll also thanked CNN for being “behind me 100 percent.”
And peanuts? I don’t want to go there.
