Here is a good piece of reading, from a African-American Tea Party Patriot.
"I Condemn the NAACP: It Needs to Wake Up!"Emery McClendon a member of the Project 21 black leadership network and a tea party organizer and speaker in Indiana. His essay for Project 21 on the tea parties appeared in Freedom’s Journal magazine. McClendon is a disabled veteran of the U S Air Force, a lifetime member of the Disabled American Veterans and the founder of Amateur Radio Military Appreciation Day.And Emery's take on this controversial attitude by the NAACP:I condemn the NAACP. I am really upset over their recent charge that the tea party movement is racist. When will these people wake up?What is the basis of their allegations? Speaking from experience, I will say that the claims they seem to be relying upon are false. The NAACP has once again been duped by the left.
I organized a tea party rally in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have also travelled around the State of Indiana speaking at similar events. I have attended events and rallies with other conservative groups in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC and elsewhere. I can say that these events were open to anyone that wished to attend. I was even recently awarded a plaque by a tea party group in Madison County, Indiana. Is this racism?
Wake up, NAACP!
UPDATE: Democrats "Racist" agenda has been exposed-From Big Government.com Andrew Breitbart
This from Mary Frances Berry, appointed to the head of the US Commission on Civil Rights by Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, has been quoted as authoring the following Statement:
"Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness."
I have said it once before... THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR IT (Calling the Tea Party racist). I strongly suggest to everyone, DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS DIVERSION. It's a Saul Alinsky tactic.
