Tea Party Leader Pens Racist Rant on NAACP Lazy Welfare ‘Coloreds’

July 15, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Tea party leaders called out by the NAACP to clean house and repudiate the racists and bigots within their ranks, have responded with a puzzling tactic. Deny tea party racism exists, despite documented evidence to the contrary, hurl counter charges of racism at the oldest civil rights organization in the country and double down on racist and bigoted behavior for good measure. Meet Mark Williams, former chairman and current spokesman of The Tea Party Express, a nationally recognized and corporate-backed tea party group that invited Sarah Palin to speak at one of its rallies. Williams is known for his incendiary and bigoted verbal grenades, such as attacking President Obama, as “an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief.”

The NAACP’s resolution condemning the bigoted elements within the tea party, has caused Williams to become unhinged. In the past 48-hours, Williams has gone on the attack, by denouncing the NAACP, as “professional race-baiters” who “make more money off of race than any slave trader ever.” And during a testy appearance on CNN last night, Williams, said “Racists have their own movement. It’s called the NAACP.” And the “I’m not a racist” tea party leader was just getting started. He penned an insane bigoted rant in the form of a letter from the “colored” NAACP head Ben Jealous to Abe Lincoln, asking for a return to slavery, so the government as “massa” can continue to dole out welfare to lazy “coloreds.” What a great way to show the world that teapartiers are not racists!

Williams believes that since the NAACP has the word “colored” in its name that means the organization is racist. His racist screed portrays “coloreds” as lazy bums whom don’t want to work for a living. The coloreds prefer to take money from the whites to put a “wide screen TV in every room,” writes Williams.

In response to commenters criticizing his “coloreds” post, Williams responded:

“I am mocking those people who call themselves “Colored People” and who are now fighting to be kept as government owned pets, whilst hurling charges of racism at those who embrace freedom and civil rights.”

And in another comment Williams, wrote: ‘“massa” owned slaves. The group that calls itself “Colored People” want government to be the new massa.”

The entire “coloreds” post is below:

“NAACP Resolution: Colored People change minds about emancipation


In every one of the dozens of interviews that I have done regarding the anti-Tea Party resolution passed by the NAACP I have brought up the absurdity of a group that calls blacks “Colored People” hurling charges of racism. Whats more, each interviewer has defended that phrase and expressed surprise that I would consider that phrase to be racist!

Apparently Colored People are an entirely new race of people and one to which the title applies. Here NAACP President Precious Ben Jealous explains to President Abraham Lincoln the reasons for the resolution in this newly discovered letter :

Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Colored People 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 Colored People. That means we Colored People 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 Colored People 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.


Precious Ben Jealous, Tom’s Nephew National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Head Colored Person”

    And some of the “conservatives” keep wondering aloud why we African Americans don’t join their party. It’s because we recognize users and abusers, and we recognize a den of snakes that will turn on you on a dime. William exemplifies this very well.

    The Tea Party Express is a GOP backed group that has NOTHING to do with “the tea party movement” there is a great distinction there. It is a Sarah Palin / John Mccain abomination that does not represent the same views or ideals of the main tea party movment.

    please, Farakahn, Wright, Jackson, and all the other “supposed” black leaders are the racists… The NAACP has decided that the “race card” keeps business booming.. Think about it, if racism was at a minimum, where it is, who’d need em? right? WIthout racism the NAACP would be obsolete and therefore not needed….

    Sorry, but the “modern NAACP”, not to be confused with the latter, is nothing but a political organization here to serve Obama, and the black panther organization…

    Blacks have every opportunity in this country as everyone else, in fact, with all the affirmative action shit out there, they probably have a better chance than even whitey! yet, all their supposed leaers teach only victamization and how the world owes them for everything….

    Incredible. Now where are the Sarah Palins and Michele Bauchmanns? Why aren’t they denouncing this guy?

    If the tea party guys said these things then that’s obviously inappropriate. But here’s my opinion about your idea that not raising taxes is a racist idea:

    Grow up. Know that the world is an unfair place. Keep trying to reach the next step up rather than complaining.

    I say this because I am a colored person, but your rhetoric does not represent me. I am Chinese, an Asian American. I came out of the inner city as many underpriveleged, we were very poor. I didn’t have other people of my culture in my class. My parents didn’t speak English hardly at all. So by your logic I must have no chance.

    2 Masters degrees and a successful career later, I feel blessed to be in this country. But this doesn’t mean things were fair. I dealt with affirmative action, where I couldn’t get student scholarships for my 4.0 GPA and 99th percentile test scores. I didn’t get accepted to many of the schools I applied, but I kept plugging away, kept trying. No one told me affirmative action didn’t apply to me, yet somehow it doesn’t dawn on your organization that you support a premise that punishes the upper end and defines “colored” (obviously not me). If anything this is inherently racist, as it clearly tells which races/sexes are allowed to participate.

    When I came out of school, I was 200K in debt due to the lack of this scholarship money (thanks affirmative action). I came out in the recession, jobs were scarce. Once again, I kept trying first — I grumbled about my misfortune, felt depressed, but kept going. Kept going meant 100+ hour weeks working towards that job, countless nights on friends’ couches or ratty motels on my dime. And finally, after 10-15 years of sacrifice, I am married, finally settling.

    You want to tax people like me more. My question is why. What did I do to deserve this? Who are you to judge me for what I have done or gone through? I worked my tail off to get here, sacrificed and put off having a family for the sake of trying to plan and provide for them. Now that I am finally catching up, you want a piece?

    Wake up and look yourself in the mirror, and learn what it takes to succeed even when all the cards are stacked against you.

    @jdude: keep your mouth silent about who MY leaders are; you know nothing of my people or our leaders. The people you mentioned like Farrakahn and others have their followers. However Black people are not monolithic (look up the term in a dictionary), a fact you’d know if you actually had any education. Your leaders, on the other hand, are damned near single-handedly responsible for the rape of the Earth, the theft of resources from people of color, the rape of women of color, and the probable suffocating death of the planet because of your rapaciousness and inborn evil. Everything you have “conquered” except Black people and American Indians has rotted on the vine. The Earth is dying as are her animal inhabitants, thanks to your leaders/rapists.

    Boy, you wanna start slinging arrows, then you better get the right equipment. Otherwise, go play your effing video games.

    Some good points up there. Note that Mark Williams is taking advantage of history-based use of “colored” in NAACP’s own name. Looking at actual polls may say more:
    BTW note that even if poll shows “more” teapartiers are racist than average but most of them aren’t. But I think the issue is “tone.” As for things like affirmative action, those are game points to consider pros and cons, and opposition does not equate to racism (anymore than opposition to Israel’s policies is “anti-semitic” – the right’s flip-side of sometimes overbearing liberal responses to criticism.)

    drew: Then your “better” teaparty faction needs to openly declare a break from the other kind!

    jdude: whether or not we should have affirmative action, and over and above racism: black people are in worse shape due to documented overall shifting of resources and power to the wealthy. Welfare has already been cut, and did you know that more money now goes out in payments to child tax credits in general, like to families of all races making up to around 100k? Why am I subsidizing those upper middle class kids? And look at farm and industry subsidies, the way mining companies pay 1800s level for use of land because of lobbyists etc.

    I guess discrimination doesn’t happen in jdude’s world….

    Well, if the show fits…..

    Looks like this guy is just saying what everyone (including “coloreds”) already knows.

    Speaking the truth is now the new racist. MORONS.
