CNN camerawoman called an animal at RNC says "this should be a wake up call for black people"
The CNN camerawoman pelted with peanuts and called an "animal" while covering the Republican National convention has spoken out, saying she wasn't surprised by the incident because "people think we've gone further than we have."
Online columnist Richard Prince got the only interview camerawoman Patricia Carroll said she would give on the subject, featuring the story on his Journal-isms website.
CNN has confirmed that two people at the RNC threw peanuts at Carroll, telling her "this is how we feed animals"; after the incident, the pair was ejected by police, but neither the cable news channel nor the convention organizers have said if the people were alternates, delegates or guests of someone else.
"This is Florida, and I'm from the Deep South," she told Journal-isms. "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."
