The very White nature of the Hispter South by Southwest conference

During the peak of the Tea Party, the media claimed it was racist. They used as evidence that the movement was mostly white members of the movement. But the media is selective when there is an all White gathering of the Left.

The Hipster Movement are the intelligentsia of the Left. They have an annual gathering called the South by Southwest conference. Independent observers have noted how White this gathering in. Twitchy shows Tweets mocking this fact.

You can always count on the hypocritical media outlets to report how overwhelmingly white gatherings of conservative are, while ignoring the overwhelming white complexion of every major liberal media institution and deified Democratic political machine.

See, for example, here, herehere, here, and here. For starters.

As we’ve been reporting, the hipster South by Southwest conference has been taking place all week in Austin, Texas. But we’ve yet to find any major national media publication or news station headlining the lack of racial diversity at SXSW. Nope, no massive, front-page photos or editorials decrying the racial imbalance of the attendees the way Tea Party gatherings were attacked relentlessly.

Fortunately, many Twitter users have resisted the urge to whitewash the truth about the failure of progressives of pallor to practice what they preach.

This is media hypocrisy. They say nothing about this Hipster gathering being non diverse. For the record, I could care less about what race attends which conferences, but the media double standard here is blatant.

    Ever been to Washington D.C.? Philadelphia? Birmingham? Santa Ana? Whites are underrepresented there. So what.

    SXSW is extremely SWPL if you know what I mean.

    The last big Tea Party rally held in Norfolk VA three out of eight speakers were African-American. The large crowd though, was less diverse. The large public park is ringed by public housing and minority neighborhoods. There was no poll tax or entrance fee, so there was no reason for them not to attend, unless Gadsden flags scare you. Yogi Berra said it best-” If people don’t want to come out to the ballpark-nothing is gonna stop ‘em.
