  • Give it up OP lol..they will call those black folks ..'tokens' ...trust me it's very predictable indeed! Crying racism is overused today and alot use it as a tactic to silence.

  • Some on here will call anyone who has a differing opinion from them a racist or bigot. I have learned to ignore those people they are morons.

  • That's the losing end of an argument (calling someone a racist or bigot just means they have nothing else to b*tch about).

  • The Tea party is not racist. The left just tells their sheep that to attempt to discredit them because they know the tea party is successful.

  • Generalized sweeping statements about an entire group of people, ANY people, points to the speakers ignorance.

  • Not all tea partiers are racist and no one is trying to say they are but there are some very vocal bad apples that give you a bad name.

  • When you can't think of any facts to use against a person or group to discredit them, pull out the race card. That will get attention. If there are ten thousand people at a rally and one nut shows up with a racist sign, that will be plastered all over liberal newsprint and tv, "proving" that the group is racist.

  • I don't have to explain that. I can be as racist as I want, even if there are some blacks that also belong to my movement, my political affiliation, my church, my neighborhood, anything. It doesn't make me less racist.
