Well Duh

Having a black guy as President is making rich old white guys nervous? Tell us something we didn't know, eh? Washington Post (07.04.10):
"(T)he Tea Party is essentially the reappearance of an old anti-government far right that has always been with us and accounts for about one-fifth of the country. The Times reported that Tea Party supporters 'tend to be Republican, white, male, married and older than 45.' They are also more affluent and better educated than Americans as a whole. This is the populism of the privileged."

The Tea Party: Populism of the privileged

"And the poll suggested something that white Americans are reluctant to discuss: Part of the anger at President Obama among Tea Partiers does appear to be driven by racial concerns."

Where was racism suggested by this poll? Is this it?

"They are more likely than the general public, and Republicans, to say that too much has been made of the problems facing black people."

Perhaps they think like I do. I believe affirmative action is racist. We're basically telling black people they can't do it by themselves. They aren't good enough or smart enough to make it on their own.

That's why we send them checks every month. They aren't smart enough to make it on their own, they'd starve to death without our help!

If the last two paragraphs didn't sound racist and condescending to blacks, you're a democrat.
