Tea Party Blacks Face A Sceptical Press

Several black conservative members of the Tea Party movement recently held a press conference to introduce themselves and to opine that the Tea Party movement is not animated by race. The press was a bit aggressive, with much attention paid to the Congressional Black Caucus charges of racial animus dating back to the weekend of the healthcare vote. The speakers make several good points, the two most important being that there is no place in the press, including the black press, for demonizing those with whom they disagree, and that our nation will be a far stronger nation when we stop thinking in terms of black and white.
