Some African Americans (not all) still think Obama is a great president, that we should have patience and that he will succeed.
Others know better than that by now and realize he's just a puppet like Bush and the other former presidents where...

Here's my point: I fail to see how you can be a moderator when you harass a group of people in one political paradigm for alleged name calling, but fall all over yourself to engage in civil discourse with someone who calls conservative African Americans the derogatory "Uncle Tom" without reprimanding him for committing the same offense. Maybe you should step down as moderator, since you are obviously biased and unfair in your moderating duties.

So when these people are pointed out, the defense is - 'The Tea Party is not a cohesive group. It is not really a party. It is not a group of certain anything, it is just random people. If there are some racists then they only represent themselves.'
Then why is it that the 5 black Tea Party members are held up as somehow representative of the idea that the Tea Party is indeed a cohesive group that is not at all racist?
How can it be both?

This is the argument that I have seen play out in so many different situation.
"I'm not racist, I have a black friend"
No, it doesn't work that way.
Here is how you end racism. Stop talking about. Do what Morgan Freeman said, see each other as people, rather than "insertrandomddescription" people.
Send your kids to school with white, black, hispanic, and asian children. Don't talk about race, and it'll be over in a few generations.

Maybe Tea Baggers shouldn't harass black congressmen and black liberals.
Karma is a bitch huh?

If you actually read my post you would see that I said "people call you an uncle tom for belonging to The Tea Party". Not my words.
