    Is the Tea Party racist?

    Pretty simple question here.

    As a group, a collective, is the Tea Party movement racist?

    how does one assign an individual trait to a collective?

    I imagine some individuals are racist, but the purpose of the movement has nothing to do with race issues.

    No not at all, to claim otherwise is ludicrous.

    Not in any overt way, no. Do they appeal to some racists, sure. They are not alone in that. And there are questions concerning the timing of their rise, since none of this is new today. But I see no overt racism on the whole.
