I found the imagery surreal and a bit sad: the minorities trying desperately to prove that they were “one of the good ones”; the organizers trying desperately to resolve any racial guilt among the crowd. The message was clear: How could we be intolerant if these multicolored faces feel the same way we do?
It was a farce. This Tea Party wanted to project a mainstream image of a group that is anything but. A New York Times/CBS News poll released on Wednesday found that only 1 percent of Tea Party supporters are black and only 1 percent are Hispanic. It’s almost all white…
Thursday night I saw a political minstrel show devised for the entertainment of those on the rim of obliviousness and for those engaged in the subterfuge of intolerance. I was not amused.
So the entire premise of his article is that the tea party can't be legit if there aren't enough black people for his satisfaction. Roland Martin who is as liberal and an Obama ass kisser as Blow says that black people who do attend are crazy negroes in his commentary on Tom Joyner show.
Basically the entire liberal black group think is to use the race card as they always do to tear down something or someone they do not like rocking their worldview.
Just as an aside, Black people from this 2007 poll on the role of big government.
The public is split on whether they would rather have a smaller government providing fewer services (45%) or a bigger government providing more services (43%). However, among blacks, there is no such ambivalence: By a margin of more than three-to-one (69%-21%), blacks favor a bigger government with more services. The candidates are also on firm ground among the Democratic Party's rank-and-file, fully six-in-ten (60%) favor a bigger government compared with 28% who favor a smaller government with fewer services.
I wouldn't think tea party views would gel with most blacks or African-Americans.
