A bizarre fragment from Tucker. He shows a clip of Ana Navarro (I've heard the name a couple of times, but it's the first time I saw her on the screen) talking about (as far as I could understand from the clip) how happy she was with the non-whiteness of the DNC convention.

"It was all about representation. My little melanated cynical heart, my immigrant melanated woman heart felt so full last night".



That's when I learnt the word melanated :-) And was amazed to see that this woman, whom I'd have taken for white if I'd seen her on the street, thinks of herself as not being one. So weird.
