Default What if the Tea Party wasn't a bunch of white people?

Read an interesting blog entry, curious to see if any Tea Party folks can offer an intelligent rebuttal.

I'd consider myself a Tea Party supporter; I am completely against government healthcare, bailouts, and for the most part welfare in general. However, you will not see me going out to protests waiving guns in the air and spitting on politicians. You want to ask what would happen to a "black man" that did such things... I would certainly hope the same thing would happen to him that should happen to a white man. They should be arrested.

As for your musician, political commentator, radio host, and pastor who have made their personal dissatisfaction with our president public, I'm sure no african american ever had negative comments to say about George Bush right? The recent dissatisfaction with our political representatives has nothing to do with racism, if it did there is absolutely no way a man whose race represents a mere 12% of the US population would have ever been elected president. This is about politics, and about spending money we don't have, and people being upset about that.

What if 99% of Black Americans (who voted) didn't vote for obama? Who gives a ****; **** diversity.


R: Holy **** Batman, all these white people are voting for a black man for president!

B: Those racist *****!

-----

R: Holy **** Batman, this president is bankrupting our country and taking us down a path American should never travel.

B: Robin, you **** sucking racist ****!

----

R: Holy **** Batman, all these people are mad about having to give away their freedoms, pay higher taxes to support others, and watch this congress ruin our country. Look how they gather peacefully to protest this new socialist agenda!

B: Robin, look at me...I'm about to BLAMO-POW your racist ***.

----

R: Holy **** Batman, It's the NAACP!

B: Hello Rev. Sharpton? My colleague Robin just spit on me and called me ------ 15 times!


How's that for intelligent?

A professional race baiter baiting racists to sell his article? Say it ain't so.
Using fabricated events to create a straw-man fallacy? That could never happen.
Lying about the demographics at political rallies to make political hay? I can't imagine it.
Choosing to make personal attacks on a group of people instead of addressing the actual point of their protest? I can't believe it.

Let me see...what would happen to a "prominent anti-racial writer" if there was no racism. Oh yeah, he'd be out of a job.

So it would probably be in his best interest if racism remained. Might even be worthwhile for him to promote it, wouldn't it?

wrong. By my definition of racism, and that of which is held by most other minority figures (like Dr. Marc Lemont Hill), it is only racism if it is done by the group/person/race in power. Therefore, in America for example, pretty much only white people can be racist.

Google: Institutional racism

This definition means that something is being withheld, or someone is being held back. In other words, the people in power have something the discriminated don't.

To me this is a step beyond racism, and falls under exactly that, discrimination.


Now what flier is alluding to is called ethnocentrism, the partiality that nearly all people hold for their own people, the feeling that they are more important.

Racism only requires a sense of superiority, which usual entails hatred towards others due to viewing them as inferior. Racism occupies the middle ground between acceptable and natural ethnocentrism, and "institutional racism", or discrimination.

I might lend some credence to that argument if the facts weren't so skewed and the only details that were included were carefully hand picked excerpts that specifically fit the authors needs. You can smell the bias and ulterior motive in it.

This is exactly what the elitists in government want, for us to be fighting amongst ourselves so they can sneak by their personal agenda when we're not paying attention. The only concern they have is themselves, not us or our country.

Don't believe the hype, it's all a shell game.

If I go down a certain road in my town, I'll get pulled over, questioned and possibly searched.... because the only reason a white boy would be there is to buy drugs. lawl
