Has Denver become, in the words of esteemed funkers Parliament, a Chocolate City?

It has, for one week at least, according to Maryland blogger c3 over at Charles Black Politics blog.

“At every turn I’m finding people who’ve brought others to Denver to experience this convention. Word is the migration won’t stop until Thursday when the population in the city is going to burst at the seams. Delegations from every state have new delegates that are Black.
So who does this Chocolate City benefit? It’s obvious black entertainment. The names are like an A-list of those pushing the envelope on big screens and small screens. Spike Lee is making the rounds promoting his upcoming movie Miracle at St. Ann. It’s the story of an all Black World War Two regiment that liberates an Italian town.”
