In case you missed it: when Zoraida Fonalledas of Puerto Rico spoke at the RNC yesterday, she was shouted down.
According to Harper’s:
The chanting carried on for nearly a minute while most of the other delegates and the media stood by in stunned silence. The Puerto Rican correspondent turned to me and asked, “Is this happening?” I said I honestly didn’t know what was happening—it was astonishing to see all the brittle work of narrative construction that is a modern political convention suddenly crack before our eyes. None of us could quite believe what we were seeing: A sea of twentysomething bowties and cowboy hats morphing into frat bros apparently shrieking over (or at) a Latina.
This is UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE. Just watch it. I am so ashamed to share a country with these people.
