Yes, I would have to learn to be an Uncle Tom. It would be foreign territory for me, as a Black man, adopting a white racist agenda.

This story comes from the NPR, which is basically a publicly funded version of Daily Kos or the NY Times; hence, the inclusion of a comment from an Obama-supporting political science professor wasting space at the University of Oklahoma.

I'm curious, give us a list why you dislike him so much, and please don't allow Negro emotionalism to overcome your rant. Usually when a person name-calls, he hasn't got much credibility.

I'm all ears.

Don't need a list. Any Black man that would align themselves with the Tea Party, is a Black man with no integrity, no dignity, and no valid point of view. The Tea Party formed ONLY after the First Black President was elected to office. Now, they can deny it if they want to, but that fact tells you volumes about them. In the 1960's, during the great social movement, blacks like Shannon would have been too afraid to show their faces. That's because the level of awareness among Blacks was so strong, that there were certain things that united us all. Sure, we had minor differences, but they were minor. For instance, Clarence Thomas, in 1972, strongly supported George McGovern for President.
Any Black person that claim to share the values of the Tea Party is simply a Black person that places power and money over principle and integrity. Those kind, if they existed in the 1960's, would dare show their faces.
There is absolutely NOTHING in the Tea Party agenda that a black person should support. It is basically a White Supremacist platform, that again, didn't exist until the election of the First Black President. Call that a coincidence if you so wish, but to any rational person, that sums up their plight. Shannon has been campaigning while employing the social wedge issues. He uses the same coded language that Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, and Bill O'Reilly uses. The man is a disgrace, and I will, if he wins the Republican primary, as a Black man, tell every single black voter that I know not to vote for this disgraceful man., Blacks died in the streets, were beaten, were terrorized in the past in order to make sure Blacks like him receive their just due in America. Then, he sides with the offspring of those who tried to derail the Black movement. I sincerely hope that he will be defeated, and soundly. He's a disgrace.

So what problems that you have with the "Tea Party"? Being a citizen of this country, everyone should have the RIGHT to join whatever party they want to. No one stops Blacks from joing the NOI,nor do anyone stops a person wanting to join the KKK, and NAACP. I have no problem with the TEA PARTY, nor the NAACP.

Perhaps you, as many others do, use this simple equation.
\
Republicans are conservatives

=Only whites are Republicans

=Since the Republican Party is mainly white

= All whites hate blacks and are racists.

Problem solved!

No, your response is insufficient. Blacks never passed laws in this nation in an attempt to deny white people their constitutional rights. Blacks never told white people that they cannot vote, Blacks never told white people that they could not go to this school, go to this restaurant, go to this public facility, because they were white. But whites did that to blacks. So don't give me this BS false equivalency bullshit.

I know, I was one in college back in the fifties and sixties that marched, protested, hoping for a better day for all non-whites in this country.

Ok, we now have the right to vote, so what?
Last runoff election here in Atlanta, less then ten percent even bothered to vote.

To tell you the truth, more people that become citizens of this country, have a better understanding of how politics work, then native born citizens.

All of this hoopla about voting rights, is just that, hoopla.

Listening to your response about the past, there is no letting up on all whites in this country. If one used that logic, then we should HATE all people that placed us into this dilemma, including the black Africans that sold the slaves to begin with.

There is nothing new or unusual about Africans in the GOP. What bothers is not that we have always been in the GOP but the low quality that we have seen since Aunt Condi Rice. She is nothing but a perverted sellout not one bit better than Obama. Now, this guy is talking like an idiot. They are people of color who want nothing except to deny their own ethnicity in order to ape the white man. They are totally useful and irrelevant to us as Africans. So is Obama. Nobody needs them or wants them

Yeah. That is about the way I see it. The guy is a tom. He has nothing to offer an African except a hard time. But this type if foolishness did not start with him, Aunt Condi Rice was much worse. It is nearly impossible for anybody to be worse than Aunt Condi. Then Uncle Obama came along and attacked Africa. Nobody wants to criticize Aunt Condi because she is a woman. I cannot imagine why nobody criticizes Obama after he lynched Qaddafi and starved 260,000 Somalis to death. But we cannot ignore tomism forever. Sooner or latter we have no choice but to make them accountable. Otherwise, they will sell us down river every time.

Of course he is likely to win. I can tell by his rhetoric. He is too polished and smooth. They have been preparing him for years because the3y control him. He is almost certain to win. Our job is to make life miserable for him and all other toms and jamemas.
