I enter the venue and, WOW: The Republicans are white and old. You can’t help but notice. Statistics support that claim. It is what it is, I guess?
The oldness and whiteness is striking in person because it so does not represent where I live and what my version of America looks like. I work in New York City, arguably the most diverse place on the planet. And I live in Nyack, NY, which, you know, is about as diverse as suburbs go.
