Mark Williams Tea Party Express Implosion

In the spirit of accurate information, I went hunting. Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP accused the Tea Party movement of harboring racists elements. Got it. In response, Mark Williams, leader of the influential Tea Party Express, writes a letter to Abraham Lincoln, in the voice of Black folks, to do what? - prove Jealous right? That makes sense. In turn, the National Tea Party Federation boots Tea Party Express and Williams. Amazing!

Read it for yourself...

Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don't cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the 'tea party movement'.

The tea party position to "end the bailouts" for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn't that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.

And the ridiculous idea of "reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government." What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!

The racist tea parties also demand that the government "stop the out of control spending." Again, they directly target Colored People. That means we Colored People would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.

Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government "stop raising our taxes." That is outrageous! How will we Colored People ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?

Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.

Have to give it to the Tea party for booting this guy. Sure don't need people like that in any organization.

I heard on the radio a speech given by a women speaker at the recent NAACP get together.

She apparently works with farm aid somehow. She spoke about how a white farmer came in in financial trouble and how all she could think about was the many black farmers that had lost their farms.

She then admitted to not doing everything she could (as described in her job) to help this man because he was white and laughed about it.

So will the NAACP boot racist elements like her and others out of that group?

Will they even hear talk that they exist?
Hell no.

They need to take care of their own issues before calling anyone else out for theirs and we know their are plenty of issues in the black community that need taking care of but all they can do is play the same old blame the white guy game.

Apparently, the Obama Administration apologized to this lady for making her resign or firing her.. I don't think she deserved the apology. She shouldn't have said what she said. Its obvious that there are still racist white people. And it seems that there are more racist black people.

Theres racism on both sides BUT the difference is, we blacks have a 'double standard' of sorts because of the past. It's a shame that as soon as civil rights legistation came out, the whole country got hit with the sex and drug culture, so we went downhill as a group instead of progressing like other minority groups like some africans and immigrants as a whole. 'English only'whites arent doing too good either.
