    Keith’s argument is not a real sound one unless you thought the Tea Party movement was racist in the beginning. African Americans voted in large numbers (96%) for the president, and therefore they support his policies. Because the Tea Party movement doesn’t support his policies, they would have less minority representation naturally, correct? It’s almost as if to say that the NHL is racist because most of the players are white and of European descent.

    Are African Americans being kept out of tea parties that they’d like to attend? Are they not allowed at such gatherings? Then it could be called “racism”.

    I’m glad Keith Olbermann admits his prejudices, but really, he doesn’t speak for all white people.

    Please explain the racist signs held up at the Tea party convention? Please explain why African Americans don’t feel invited or welcomed to to Tea party Events, not even Mike Steele. I mean where is even that 4% you mentioned? Statistically that should amount to 1-2 persons of color, ain’t seen them yet. Hispanics didn’t go 96% for Obama and yet where is the Hispanic Teabagger out there encouraging the masses. No Mr Olbermann is describing the Tea Party and you to a “T.” You are afraid and it shows in these ridiculous attempts to hide your racism. BTW can you tell me about the NHL inner city, south american, asian, african outreach program? thought not. Time for you to admit your prejudice……or do you speak for all white people.

    The race card is so old and tired, nobody cares anymore. The boy cried wolf too many times. Even if the movement is White oriented, so what? Whites are tired of racism perpetuated on them and of Liberal racist, self haters. Consider this a backlash on multicultural theory BS!!!!

    Olbermann completely ignores the fact that Afro-Americans are overwhelmingly liberal Democrats and Tea Parties attract conservatives. So, if there’s a Tea Party where all are welcome and no liberal Democrats show up, how does that make them racist?

    Ever look at the MessNBC line up?
    tingles matthews=white
    ed shultz=white
    dylan ratigan=white
    morning joe=white
    contessa brewer=white

    sounds like a racist unorganization.
