I have to admit he is rather a moron for writing such a thing. There are plenty of ways to discuss issues without throwing race into it. He could have taken the academic approach and used a hypothetical group and how government help or lack of would effect them.

Many claim it was parody, but parody is not an excuse for being racist. At one time parody included whites wearing blackface with exaggerated stereotypical behavior characteristics. Something we look back upon as being racist, but it was the height of parody during it's time. With more examples being the watermelon emails and the like.

The tea Party really needs some sanity in its leadership. They need to focus on the issues and simply ignore claims they are being racist. Most importantly, they need to stop propagating the belief with such poorly thought through act such as writing the letter in question.

You do not get the honor of identifying tea party priorities, you are not qualified and you have a contrary agenda to them which are to limit govt, and allow earners to keep the fruits of their labor which you have an issue with.
As far as I can tell, far more black tea party participants than white naacp conventioneers.
On the other hand naacp wants to honor a dead pedophile by turning his former home into a state park, and the funny thing is that michael jackson liked white boys exclusively. What do yo think would be some good names for the games and rides? Maybe "It's all rite it's turning white licking game"? Pink Starfish ride, gee the list is endless and amusing

One cannot simply ignore the accusations of racism thrown by even bigger racists and thieves intent of tribute. One has to respond by demonstrating the accusations are spurious and will not be tolerated. It's never been about race per se, although statistically there is an significant association of thuggish antisocial behavior given certain appearances, and that continued behavior and attempt to dominate without a valid complaint makes it clearer that the only solution is separation, but as those demanding reparations cant exist on their own, so there will be no comfortable solution with one sided demands of perpetual sacrifice and unwillingness to participate in a dialogue comprized of words and concepts that are agreed upon by all.

He's using sarcasm to make a point. Perhaps you guys would have more credibility if the rest of the free world didn't have a good understanding that you guys cry racism every time you don't get your way. It's really just that simple. The fact that Benjamin Jealos makes claims about signs that never existed speaks volumes. Proportionally, blacks make up a percenntage of the tea party movement that is equal to their percentage of the population as a whole. It won't work, so give it up. Any racism that exits in the united states is a result of guys like you who use the term as a means to scam the system. We don't really give a rats ass. I notice you had nothing to say about the "black panther" advocating "we have to kill white people and their babies." But if you did, it would go something like this. "Well that's just because you honkies is so racist."
I can only imagine your outcry if one day, Glenn Beck got on television and signed up folks for the naawp. You'd be crying racism again. In short, why don't you try taking responsibilities for your own failures. We laugh at you when you call us racist, because it simply means you can't cut it and don't have a legitimate argument. Several of the candidates we have endorsed are black. I guess you missed that one. I know, they're a bunch of uncle toms, right? Or maybe they just don't like socialism and are pro personal accountability. Pro Individual. So grow a pair or be a slave to government. And know that everytime you play the racism card, we laugh at you, because we know that you mean "I am not a capable individual and want preferential treatment in exchange for my vote." You sir, are weak.

You said Mark Williams is the leader of the Tea Party. I fail to see where he is the leader. He is a spokesman for the "Tea Party Express" which means he speaks at the events. His views on the obvious racism and disingenuous goals of the NAACP are right but to call him the leader of the Tea Party is a distortion. There is no official political party. The Tea Party, and this is what liberals will never understand or admit to is comprised almost entirely of pissed off, overtaxed, overworked, normal people that see administration after administration selling the United States off to the highest bidder in an apparent attempt to undermine our position within the world. The "Tea Party Reveals its Racism" is a sensationalist headline making you no better than Mark Williams.

To distill the complaints of the race baiters and in particular the issue of uncle toms, the obvious answer is that the proper urban experience is to have no job, or intent to find one. Responsibility is apparently a racist belief. One MAY be acceptable if provided with as little obligation as possible to adhere to any standards.
One must be dependant as possible on those that one hates, ie employed white/jews/christians/uncletoms for their cashflow.

How pitiful one must be as a man or culture to beg and demand support from strangers one choses to hate and refuses to emulate

The key point in your post is "urban experience". So long as that does not solely refer to blacks I agree (somewhat) - I wouldn't classify it solely as an urban problem though. At some point people on the economic scale give up and decide to live off the state and the children born in to that have a nearly impossible uphill battle to overcome it - I think to your point, you find that there are groups in the urban areas in particular that defend the lifestyle.

The clear answer to your point is that the government is an enabler of bad anti-social behavior because it secures votes and allows politicians to stay in power for decades. The only solution is to reverse the programs that enable it. I cannot say it isn't any different working with a lot of middle class people either - a lot of them have the same view that they are entitled to much of what they have to work for.

This might shock people to hear me say this...but this isn't racist. Yes, it does appear racist and he is going to be crucified for this, but it isn't racist.

The man is equating government reliance with slavery, which to a degree it really is.

He's saying that black people wanted to be free, yet they cling to a man who is taking away their freedom because he is "one of them".

Through the use of his sarcasm, one could easily infer this to be racist but I really don't think it is.

I don't think you really read the memo. If you oppose the republican party destroying your civil rights in order to "protect" your freedom... you're a SOCIALIST NAZI LIBERAL COMMUNIST, not a racist.

From my experience, and it is extensive, there is nobody that cant achieve success, but one has to stop seeking intoxication, sloth and thug life and attitude to do so. There is not one successful country based upon thug life that you'd want to go to, although there are plenty of them in existence, and you know where they tend to be most concentrated.

One has to choose if one is entitled to what they want simply because they exist or entitled to what they earned as an individual through honorable labor.
Yes, I expect in the near future, there will be quite a few of those that feel my desire to keep what I earned is unfair to them, and I need to provide for them and not myself, well, I have an answer to that already provided for sssooooo bring it.

I understand Williams' general point in writing the letter. He certainly could have taken a different route in getting his point across.

Nonetheless... Read his explanations for yourself

Better route? Better than the truth? I think not. I think it's perfect, other than its directed at those that by now must be congenitally incapable of understanding the message or wisdom in it. Dialogue is a two way street the assumption has to be that both parties have valid needs to be heard.

Bottom line? Those that feel the need to feel discriminated against to give themselves a purpose for living and justificaation for an institutionalized thuggish attitude and entitlement based onlust for theft will not be easily compelled by their intended victims to see the problem is actually within themselves to avoid taking responsibility for how others perceive them.
I'm done dialoging because the opposition demonstrates a desperation to remain unchanged in the face of my explanations that all that;s needed is for equal treatment, not preferential treatment, so I just prepare for a visit that I know is inevitable

This is overt ignorance but the typical ploy of the Govt. to weed out the REALLY Radical Racists out there. See the concept of a third party gaining recognition is a REAL threat to the Powers That Be.

Just look at the typical modus operandi of Law Enforcement and how the FBI infiltrates any other radical organization they seek to bring down. They send in one of their own, deep undercover to be the baddest Mobster or Motor Cycle Gang Member there is.

Look at the Mob Bosses and Motorcycle gangs Hells Angels and Outlaws, for example and how they were infiltrated and then informed upon and eventually brought down under RICO.

The threat to the status quo bi-partisan system is a definite threat to the powers that be. For if they can't cover both sides of elections with their own puppets then how can they continue to win ?

Yeah, ok. I read that and it didn't take long to "hear" more:

I personally do not care what the lowest common denominator thinks of me, they are the current administration’s power base and are kept like favored house pets.

(Emphasis mine)

What an arrogant and conceited snob....or...most likely, bigoted, racist, pig trash. Also, I love how in another response he was being coy trying to say "colored" doesn't refer to "black".


Where in that article do you see me addressing American Blacks, or any black people for that matter?


Oh, boy. I guess it works with the intended audience.

Is an opinion held in private more or less arrogant than a publicly held expectation that others who have no obligation labor and sacrifiece for those that dont for themselves?
I assume as you pass judgment on what is in all other mens hearts and what should be that you are an ascendent master yourself and somehow in your need to cast obligations of punishment on others you cant ever know, somehow perfect yourself?

Are you opining that the non-color-challenged don't do for themselves and just want to sit there on government assistance? Maybe some things happen to center around where they feel more welcome in general, which will tend to override other concerns in where people go.

(Empahsis mine)

Who said...what now? Yeah, what in their hearts, or what they want to believe is in their hearts, sure, what else is there to consider? Their haircuts?
