You know, a lot of media time has been given to the teabaggers. And one question seems to be at the forefront of what passes for "minds" in the media. Are the Tea Parties racist?
Well, realistically, if you allow racist forces to link up with your movement, then you are (thanks to "guilt by association") going to be labeled racist. So, you know, live with it.
On the other hand, if studies are showing that you're much more likely to be racist than the average citizen, then... well, sorry. Once again, you've earned the label.
You'll find apologists trying to claim that it's all some kind of plot. ("See? It's the Man, tryin' to bring us down!")
Unfortunately for that argument, there's all kinds of evidence to tell you they might just be a little untrusting of the darker skin tones. But then, just to put the final nail in the coffin... just in case all the evidence from the rallies themselves aren't enough...
