    I don't think that as a group Common Cause is racist.

    But, as a whole, no, I don't think the Progressive movement as a whole is racist

    Re: Is the Tea Party racist?

    The Tea Party Movement largely contains citizens who reject any judgments based on external and stupid criteria of pigmentation. As a female comedienne of color once said, "Hating anyone because of race is so stupid....once you get to know folks, you find that there are many LEGITIMATE reasons to hate them!"

    None of my definitions have unfair in it, but it's not important.

    Either way, bias doesn't require active discrimination, bigotry or racism. Everybody has biases and not everybody actively discriminates, is bigoted or is racist.

    It has nothing to do with who they welcome. It's about who primarily constitutes the group - white, decently well off people.

    Nobody is saying that they aren't welcoming black people. The comment is about the reality of their constitution and the types of people it does and does not include.

    Do they not welcome black conservative candidates? It's not the fault of the tea party that most blacks are democrats. Conservatives don't pander to people because of race. In my opinion that makes them less racist, not more than than the democratic party.
    Certainly. Perhaps I mispoke. I meant to say that they are primarily a white movement but I don't think they are racist.

    There's nothing can be said or done against our black president Obama that is not racist.

    That's why we should not allow black people to be president. They are free to break our laws without fear of reprimand or repercussions.

    People are just not ready for it yet.They still keep thinking blacks are inferior and need their help. We need to wait till they think a black is no different before this country is ready for a black president. If he breaks laws it will be accepted as relevant.

    so when someone says the TP has racial bias, they might mean it in a good way.

    When I was in girl scouts, my troop was all white. I guess we were racially biased even though black girls would have been welcomed?

    I don't see how any group can be racially biased if they are welcoming to another race.
