Dear Mr. Lincoln
We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!
In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.
The tea party position to “end the bailouts” for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.
And the ridiculous idea of “reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government.” What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!
The racist tea parties also demand that the government “stop the out of control spending.” Again, they directly target coloreds. That means we Coloreds would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.
Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government “stop raising our taxes.” That is outrageous! How will we coloreds ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?
Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.

He is being sarcastic and I don't think people will see the true message and will just grasp the easy arguement that he is just a racist. Kind of how you did in your title.

Get the memo people, if you oppose the government in any way or think that limited government is the best, you are a racist.
I really don't understand how people can disagree with the ideas of the Tea Party. It is too bad the propoganda of the MSM has turned people into believing it is a racist movement (LMAO) and caused true racists to join.

This guy is just another shill. Honestly no reason to read it. The Tea Party isn't a new trend. It started before Obama came into the picture.
If you keep fighting at the little things, you'll miss the big picture. The Tea Party has been taken over and hijacked. This guy is a part of that hijacking, whether he knows it or not.
No need to read the message, it is worthless. It is just a small part of the big picture. Any "Tea Party member" who is stuck on the race issue has been tricked by the MSM to believe it is a part of the fight. It wasn't, but now it is.
Just trying to look at the big picture. As I said, it has tricked people into believing the Tea Party is racist and ALSO brought out the true racists to join the Tea Party.

I understand what he was trying to say, but what a way to write it! I don't think this guy has the brain mouth filter functioning. Well too bad for this guy after this he will forever be labeled a racist. Oh well and so the story goes on. I love however that there is no reverse racism, it seems these days only a white person is capable of racist statements and every other race gets a pass.
