on Tea Party
The Tea Party Movement is rife with an underlying Hate theme that is undeniable. However small the numbers, the sentimentality is not lost on me, as an African American.
This whole "Tea Party" thing is reprehensable to me. Why weren't these people protesting when Bush was giving tax cuts to the rich and sending us in unbelievable debt? Does the strength of this "movement" have something to do with Obama's election?
This isn't covered enough by the media, and frankly it send shivers down my spine. ANY "movement" that gives racists and hate speech ANY legitimacy is dangerous. If this goes as far as I think it could, I feel I will become an ex-patriot one day. I cannot live in a place where I feel unwelcome. Even if it's my own country.
How is this more interesting or important than Earth Day? Blechh!
