You won't say why the tea party is commposed mostly of white people. Instead of saying why, you choose to argue that it is irrelevant or you get incredibly defensive and argue that anyone who would even mention race is a racist or hypocrite. That says an awful lot about you even though you aren't even aware that you are communicating. It says that it bothers you and you would rather avoid it entirely than think about it.

    Why don't you answer your own question.

    Most black people probably voted for Obama because he is a Democrat and black people vote consistantly Democrat. That was an easy answer. Now answer mine. Why is the tea party composed of white people? The longer you avoid the question, the more you prove my point that it bothers you that you belong to a movement of mostly white people.

    The problem is people who label millions of people "racist" simply because of what a handful of people have said. You agree, I assume. To not agree would be really, really stupid and you're not stupid.
    The difference being that when we see a gathering of tea party folk engaged in their public demonstrations, the visible signs of racism are unmistakable throuogh the many signs we have seen in videos presented right here in this thread and elsewhere.

    Can you say the same for a gathering of teachers? Of Liberals? of Communists? Of doctors? of lawyers? Of any of the groups or people who mentioned?

    No.

    For some reason, racist displays at tea party gatherings seem to be a component that is undeniable and part and parcel of that crowd.

    No one is bothered by it, Critical. I'm not going to bow down to racial generalizations since skin color isn't a factor in what I believe. Sorry that seems to bother you.

    Do you agree with the answer that lpast has suggested? Are the white people paying the lionshare of the taxes and are thus supporting ethnic minorities and as a result the ethnic minorities generally have no interest in belonging to a group that seeks lower taxes?

    It doesn't bother me at all. I just enjoy watching you dodge the question because you are ashamed of the answer.

    um, white people are the majority of the population, so we pay the majority of the taxes. it's interesting how you view your taxes as supporting minorities, i think. my view is that our taxes, (and i probably pay far more than you), help people who are in need, along with some who shouldn't be here. i doesn't occur to me that they are minorities.

    95% of blacks who did vote voted for Obama, it was up 13% or so from previous elections. no one cares about this.


    As the same no one cares why the tea party's makeup is what it is. It bothers me not.


    but lets play, black folks vote for democrats because how the left has enslaved them with entitlement plans, Good old white boys giving the black man a handout to keep him poor and dependant...


    You are right, this racial nonsense is fun!

    and yet that same thought process is not applied to the tea party. Game, set, match.

    I wish I had more time to discuss this, but I have to get back to work.

    I really don't understand why race and skin color is such an obsession still in the US. We shouldn't be asking "why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria?" but "why are all of these kids (of all skin colors) failing reading?" Ask the important questions, not the ones that will keep up divided by something as trivial as skin pigmentation.
