    Yeah, mostly. That's what my census records say, anyway.

    It's not hard to justify, but it's counter-productive. You can't "even out" the races while they are still considered separate entities.

    I find it funny, the government and special interest groups denegrate the Tea Party Movement (voters) and they cater to illegal aliens (non-voters)

    I hope that works for them in November and 2012.

    70% of Arizonans support the law. I'm sure there are some brown people among them.

    I think, they think, that the majority of Hispanics want open borders and amnesty. I wonder how many of them are saying "Hell no! I came here legally and played by all the rules. They can too."

    A noble sentiment.

    I would suggest that Racism will cease to be of any importance only when all peoples are treated equally with respect.
    For one part of society to grant another part of that society, advantages that are not granted to ALL of society means that hatreds will continue to exist.

    I am not aware of any political party that doesn't have their share of whackos. But the Tea Party, like the GOP, MUST make a concerted effort to seperate themselves from the fringe elements, the Becksters, the Limbaughnuts, as these people, due to their loud whining, have come to define the right and the truth is, that simply isn't so. It has cost the GOP and conservatives, as a whole, dearly. I do understand, however, why they would be reluctant to chastise this element as it probably makes up 12-20 percent of their voting block. That would be like the democrats standing against their supporters who look upon welfare as an entitlement. Perhaps there should be 3 party's. Democrats, Republicans and outright idiots. The idiots would probably take 12%-20% of the vote and the GOP and the Dems could fight over the other 80%. (Percentage numbers are just speculative on my part.)

    And my favorite line in the whole piece..........
    So the first line of the article demonstrates that these Tea Party members didn't trouble themselves to actually read the NAACP resolution.

    Excerpted from “Black tea partiers rebut NAACP” By ANDY BARR, Politico, 7/14/10 1:11 PM EDT
    Some African-American tea party candidates are displeased by a resolution that the NAACP approved on Tuesday calling the grass-roots conservative movement “racist.”
    If one actually troubles oneself to read the coverage of the NAACP resolution's passage, one quickly realizes that the accusation is not that the Tea Party is “racist” but that it has tolerated racism within its ranks, for which, I would add, there is abundant evidence for.

    Excerpted from “NAACP resolution condemns racism in tea party” By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH, Associated Press Writer, Yahoo! News, Tue Jul 13, 7:59 pm ET
    Leaders of the country's largest civil rights organization accused tea party activists on Tuesday of tolerating bigotry and approved a resolution condemning racism within the political movement.
    It's a simple declaration that the Tea Party should endorse, that it does not condone or support racism within its own membership or anywhere else for that matter. Period. That there is any controversy about this whatsoever, indicates that some within the Tea Party leadership aren't comfortable with that declaration.

    I have to say...I think one of the reasons we are starting to see anger is that people are TIRED of the racial bull****. I think a LOT of people...conservative, liberal, republicans, democrats...were HAPPY that Obama was elected. MOST PEOPLE have NO TRUCK with racism and never have. MOST PEOPLE are too busy taking care of our live, families, jobs, to BE racist let alone inclined to be. NONE of us were slaves or slave owners...a LOT of us had ancestors that came over here long after it was over and never had any involvement. And finally...after 150 years of the same tired bull**** I think a LOT of us thought...finally...a black president...now...can we get past all this bull****?

    We should have seen the signs of course. We should have seen a tolerance for racial hatred in the church he attended. We should have had our eyes opened when the man accused Bill Clinton...the nation s 'first black president' simply because he pointed out that Obama was more inexperienced and less qualified than his wife. But we just ignored it...he got in office...and...sunofabitch...its the same damn thing. EVERY TIME its conveeeenient. Every time someone disagrees. Every time they need to rally voters these assclowns pull the race card. Everytime. And frankly...I think a lot of people...left and right...black and white...are tired of it.
