View Poll Results: What Are the Tea Party Patriots
If you don't recall the clean cut black man comments from Reid and Biden.....
And if you recall the comments, you must also recall Obama's response:
"I didn't take Sen. Biden's comments personally, but obviously they were historically inaccurate. African-American presidential candidates like Jesse Jackson, Shirley Chisholm, Carol Moseley Braun and Al Sharpton gave a voice to many important issues through their campaigns, and no one would call them inarticulate."
I believe those names and the fact that they were all candidates for democratic presidental nominee also belies your earlier article which implied that white Democrats have not appreciated black candidates who did not sound indistinguishable from themselves.

None of that has to do with the Tea Party, bottom line it isn't the 50's you need to get to the 21st century.
The 1950s is only relevant in the sense that it has an impact on those who were children at that time. Those people still pay the price for discrimination of the past. But, most of the discussion is about a later period when you seem to believe that there was no affirmative action in the military, when in fact there was.
Also, all my links concern the Tea Party and Republicans in the, I believe, 2007 to present period. Reid and Biden did apologize to Obama. The same article also mentions Lott's comments. At any rate, while it appears Obama's election has sensitized many to issues of race, my links show it has not had that affect on many politicians and political operatives of the right.
