    Since American society is multiracial, who are they being racist against?

    IDK but I bet it is higher than the Klan's so to claim it is a racist organization is a bit of a stretch.

    It's not a racist organization at it's core, but there are many racist members. It became the catch all of anyone who doesn't like Obama for whatever reason, and yes, there are some people who don't like him because he's black.

    Clearly the Tea Party is a racist organization

    My office is smack dab in the middle of my government center. From it I can see the fed complex, the local courts/government/popo, the offices of our congressman/senator and numerous state and local offices. I can see most every protest that goes on. One day I saw a black guy on the steps of the courthouse with lots of black faces in the crowd and walked down to see what they were protesting. That usually happens whenever a black person gets killed by the cops and I had not heard of a killing recently. It turned out it was my first encounter with my local Tea Party protesting Obamacare.

    That is what I was asking a while ago. All the tea party members I know in this area are white...cause everyone in my town is just about. Now where you live most members of the Tea Party are black?

    I can't say most but they are involved or were beyond just one token person. Maybe it is because I live in a southern city close to being a black majority. At that time, the leader of the local Tea Party was black. It is not an organization I know a ton about other than just noting that what people say about them and what I have witnessed seldom meshes.

    Care to back up that bolded assertion? Your next sentence is even more suspect, implying that those that do not like Obama "for any reason" are TP members; perhaps you should back that up as well.
