Camerawoman Patricia Carroll says she hates that it happened. The Alabama native told Maynard Institute blogger Richard Prince on Thursday it could have happened on a street corner or at the Democratic convention, scheduled for next week in Charlotte, N.C.
Carroll says she hopes it's a wake-up call for black people.
GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign says it has apologized to CNN for what happened. A Romney campaign strategist calls the two white people's behavior "reprehensible."
