All it takes, according to wraith825, to absolve the RNC nut-thrower of racism is an unreasonable suspicion of the "liberal media" and a casual perusal of Eats, Shoots & Leaves:

This is just like the liberal media to twist things around and make a negative story out of an incident that was taken way out of context. The RNC attendee was knocked around due to the excitable commotion and lost control of his/her nuts, sending a small amount onto the face of said black CNN camerawoman. The person's reply, in a sense of regret and disgust with accidentally spilling peanuts, was actually "This is how we feed? Animals!!!"
