Black Tea Party

I actually prefer green tea parties, but to each his own. conservatives say they were drawn to the tea party movement because of what they consider its commonsense fiscal values of controlled spending, less taxes and smaller government. The fact that they're black—or that most tea partyers are white—should have nothing to do with it, they say.

Angela McGlowan, a black congressional candidate from Mississippi, said her tea party involvement is "not about a black or white issue."

"It's not even about Republican or Democrat, from my standpoint," she told The Associated Press. "All of us are taxed too much."

Black conservative tea party backers take heat

  1. Black conservatives were driven to the tea movement by their conservative Christian churches. Black people have been convinced slavery is a good idea by Christianity, as well.

    Score another irrational victory for religion!
