I speak from direct experience about the underhandedness of tea-party smear merchants. On Feb. 17, 2009, at one of the country’s first tax-revolt rallies in Denver, a man approached me amid a throng of bona fide anti-stimulus protesters and thrust a camera in my face. I obliged cheerfully, as I usually do after such speaking events. I later learned from the character assassins at Progress Now, a left-wing outfit that just happened to be there and just happened to snap a close-up photo of the interaction, that the man pulled out a sign at the last minute (which I didn’t see until later) sporting Obama’s name with a swastika on it. He held the sign away from me, but in direct view of the Progress Now cameraperson.

That cameraperson just happened to be a former CNN producer, whose blog post on the photo just happened to be immediately disseminated by the local press and to the hit men at the radical-left Media Matters website. The narrative was set: A conservative supporter of the nascent tea-party movement posed for a photo with a man holding up a swastika at a protest against out-of-control spending! Ergo, the anti-stimulus protesters and the entire tea-party membership are all racist, fascist menaces to society!

The interpretation of the answers is what's slanted. I would answer these questions the exact same way and I *am* a black guy. It's not that I'm hostile to my own race, just that I know that I'm a person like anyone else and can succeed without mommy gubmint's "help".

The topics that the TEA Party (I'm a proud member) addresses are all race-neutral. Balance the budget, get a handle on the national debt, reduce the size and scope of government, obey the Constitution. These matters have *NOTHING* to do with race, but the big government types in Washington have no valid counter argument, so they revert to "racist" ad-homs.
The majority of Americans agree with the TEA Party on every issue. If our agreement was truly racially motivated, it would be impossible for Obama to be President.

His statement is pretty clear to me. A hell of a lot of black people think that the only way they can succeed is if the government gives them something, because they feel they are being held back by "the man." That is a HUGE reason why you see 90% of them voting for Democrats. I have not and have never felt that way, and many of the problems facing the black community would be solved if they all felt this way. Any person in this country, regardless of race or national origin, can succeed if they are willing to put in the work. Problem is, if you actually believe that and you're black, as I am, you are sometimes met with hostility. Lord knows I can't tell you how many times I've been called an "Uncle Tom" in my lifetime, simply because I don't subscribe to the typical black community "groupthink."

Are there some racists in the TEA Party movement? Sure there are. You put any group of people together from any walk of life, and there's a good chance there's a few racists in the crowd. But I don't believe for a second that it represents the movement as a whole.

Tea-partiers aren't racist. If a black person shows up to one of their rallies, he's treated like the guest of honor. He gets to be in all the pictures, and interviews. How can you call that racist?
