what if the tea party was black. this is the senario that is mentioned on this blog and it would be really important if u read the whole article as i would like to hear ur views. also i was wondering if the tea party is not racist why the over weelming numbers of whites i mean where are the blacks, asians and latino supporters and why are they not as vocal as the white supporters and i will not even begin the number of racial slurs that are thrown at the rallies. also one more thing, i get ur problem is with obama, lets say i agree the tea party is not racist why the attacks on hos wife and family, i do know one thing about american history and it is no matter how unpopular a president is none have ever gotten the level of personal attacks obamas family have had
Ephphatha Poetry: "Imagine if the Tea Party Was Black" - Tim Wise
I'm sure there's a number of reasons why the tea parties are majoritarily white :
- There's still a majority of voting age adults in america that are white.
- Obama's team have been incessantly playing the race card and TELLING the people that it's run by the KKK (effectively)
- A portion of black people very likely support Obama simply because he's black
- Black people bought into the propaganda of racism / race baiting and so they don't want to risk showing up somewhere where they are not welcome
- When they do show up, white people having witnessed all the race baiting see black people and are forced to wonder if he hates them because of the propaganda.
That said... to answer the thread question :
If the tea party was black they would still be racist, anti-american traitors and possibly linked with al-quaida and on the verge of shooting people, oh and they'd all be crazy too.
It's just the way it is... the ONLY reason someone doesn't support health care reform is because they don't like people of a different race afterall.... it's ALWAYS been that way. Same thing with the bailouts... if you don't want the government bailing out white owned banks is because of racism.
If you think that Obama is creating socialism, RACIST!!!!
It DOES NOT MATTER, you cannot oppose the system without some sort of name callng... regardless of whether or not the argument even makes sense.
