    LOL, so they are considered racist for being against racist policies. Other than that, I've not seen them take a position on this. I'd guess they likely are against racism in government programs but do you have a link?

    Also, how many whites, asians, hispanics are in the Congressional Black Caucus? What do we call a group that only allows admission based upon being the correct race?

    No they're not. That justification for affirmative action died in the Bakke decision. Affirmative action can now only be justified on the basis of bringing diversity into an institution on the basis of the axiom that diversity is good for people.

    If you believe that I'm twisting the logic, please set me straight. What policies that the TEA Party supports are racist?
    I didn't say they support racist policies. I also didn't say that policies perceived as racist by others have to explicitly mention race. Again, racism is not required to be overt. However, any policies that are perceived to have negative effects on the majority of the black community are often considered racist. Here it is, in their own words:

    “The Tea Party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos and other disadvantaged minorities,” Tomcsi wrote. “We are talking about child nutrition, job creation, job training, housing assistance, and Head Start, and that is just the beginning. A child without basic nutrition, secure housing, and quality education has no real chance at a meaningful and productive life.”

    You do realize that groups based on race, gender and sexuality are usually based on the minority or traditionally marginalized race, gender or sexuality? These types of groups are created and maintained for specific purposes. I hate when people ask questions like this. It shows either an embarrassing lack of awareness or willful ignorance.

    I'd like idiots such as Carson and the hate speech they portend, to be seen for what they are... partisan ignorant suck holes. Just like his supporters.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    This just goes to show that racism is good as long as it's the correct type of racism. No, racism is never or should never be acceptable, especially in our government. Racism will never end as long as we support racism.

    I'm sure you do hate these type of questions. It's just like how the KKK Grand dragon hates being asked why he hates blacks and keep on answering that he doesn't hate blacks he just supports whites.

    What do we call groups that only allow members based upon being the proper race? (NAACP allows whites to join)

    Oh so now, I'm like the Grand Dragon of the KKK. You're ridiculous. I've already made my point. You're taking to another level that I'm not interested in.
