    BTW, do you dismiss the fact that liberal operatives were dispatched into Tea Party events with racist signs to harm the movement, and smear them unfairly?

    I haven't seen evidence of such, but if you can find such evidence then I'm willing to be completely honest that it exists.

    Is that not what liberals constantly ask of conservatives when these types of generalizations are made? Name names? Now when the shoe is on the other foot it pinches a little.

    Trying to defend Carson's statement. One only needs to know one thing about the CBC. They only let you join if you are the correct color. White? no. Hispanic? No. Asian? No.

    Do you feel groups that only allow membership based upon color should be a part of our government?

    We could have saved a ton of posting if that had been your position from the beginning.

    Good lord.

    Oh...and BTW...I would LOVE to read the whole study...not just the abstract. Just like I would love to know if this group wasnt setting out to prove their assertion that Tea Party = racist.
    well, now you're just being obtuse. And as I pointed out before, there's a distinction between nativism and racism. And it doesn't take a genius to that nativism and xenophobia still exist in large segments of America. FFS it exhibits itself right here on this forum.

    Still not fond of the Tea Party though.
    So, for the record, I believe Carson is wrong and that he should apologize.

    From the ColoradoSprings Gazette article linked in post #759:

    Though “tar baby” is defined in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as “something from which it is nearly impossible to extricate oneself,” it has also long been recognized as a derogatory term for blacks.
    Once you go in that direction, it's very difficult to be viewed as anything but a racist.

    Tar baby...money...ape...Sambo...welfare president...

    All such connotations denote racism.

    Obtuse? Why...because you think it is APPROPRIATE to use a study to label Tea Party members as racist based on some study by a group you know nothing about that uses vague genaralizations and NOT to other groups? You can express bigotry towards Tea Party participants (and be VERY clear...you are endorsing the congressmans comments and calling people you cant identify and dont know "racists") and dont think that is the same as someone saying that since there are so many blacks in prison it sure says a lot about blacks? Geeeezus, SB...really?
