Were There ‘Tribal Aspects’ To The Anti War Protests?

Noel Sheppard pointed out: at Newsbusters y[1]esterday that Chris Matthews once again accuses the Tea Party goers of being too white:

“This is a largely white — almost no minorities in this crowd,” reported MSNBC’s O’Donnell live from the scene.

Matthews reiterated, “Well, they look like a white crowd to me,” later claiming, “I think there is a tribal aspect to this thing, in other words, white vs. other people.”

Here are pics [2]from the left’s Code Pink’s latest march on Washington D.C. I don’t see ONE face of color. Go ahead and look through their photo stream back into the Bush years and the protests then. Still a sea of white faces. Here are a few anti war protest pics [3]from that time when I pointed this out back in April.

Let’s compare. Here are anti-war protests [4](I warn you, they may be overtly white, but they are also overtly weird). Here are the Tea Party Protests.[5]

I’m wondering if Chris Matthews or MSNBC ever commented on the “whiteness” or the “tribal aspect”: of the left’s anti-war protests?

I think you know the answer to that.
