What if the Tea Party was majority Black, instead of overwhelmingly white? CNN asked this question during an intense debate on one of the 24/7 news channels increasingly unwatched and irrelevant shows.
Tea Party people still don’t understand: The ideas they espouse aren’t universal and they obviously don’t transcend racial barriers.
Any movement that is frequented by a majority of white people will be automatically pegged as racist in its intent. The dreaded N-word, NASCAR, has long been the butt of numerous jokes regarding the monochromatic fan base of the sport.
Limited government and low taxation are foundational myths of the Tea Party belief structure and these run counter to the manner in which Black Run America (BRA) is governed.
Indeed, someone must pay for social programs and if the Tea Party movement had their ideas implemented then programs that help maintain BRA would be sorely under-funded.
Sadly, what is lost to those who even pose the question of a fictional “Black Tea Party” is that anti-racism is accepted as the tool to control unpopular thought in America. The Tea Party people fear being called racist and run from any unpopular discourse that might label them as such, despite the righteous indignation of Disingenuous White Liberals who know – axiomatically – that the Tea Party participants are inherently racist.
It is an interesting thought experiment though: What would happen if the Tea Party participants were Black? How would the media depict this movement?
Perhaps, they would cover the Tea Party with the same zeal they cover Flash Mobs, a uniquely Black activity that usually results in major property damage wherever they occur?
Here is the ultimate question: Who stands to lose the most if the Tea Party people succeed? If limited government, fiscal responsibilities and the rollback of government intrusion into Americans lives happened tomorrow, who would benefit?
How many government programs that benefit Black people would be cut immediately, as the taxes collected and money allocated for these programs ended?
If the Tea Party were Black, you can be assured that no media talking-head would dare insinuate that the participants were racist as Black people exercising their right to demonstrate collectively is never, ever construed as racist, but merely an outgrowth of positive community feedback.
Anytime a Tea Party activist is interviewed by the media, they immediately are on the defensive from accusatory questions of the racist nature of their organization. This is never the case of majority Black endeavors, which are treated with the utmost respect. Indeed, CNN ran a glowing story entitled “Black in America” which never at hinted at the intrinsic prejudicial elements within that feature.
Does anyone really believe CNN would put together a feature entitled “White in America” that asked penetrating and probing questions about the future for whites in America?
No. If the Tea Party is to survive and become relevant in an increasingly tribal America (fragmenting by the day) then they must become numb the term “racist”. That term is the nullifies any arguement, for know matter how well-argued or factual a case may be against something if it is labeled racist then that characterization sticks. That is ultimate hate fact.
You can’t wash it off with soap and then present it to the public again with a smiling Black face (like Lloyd Marcus) and expect people to embrace your movement with open arms.
The elite of this nation have declared war on the Tea Party movement in America for one reason: they represent a challenge to Black Run America, unlike any entity before. And if BRA goes, so goes Disingenuous White Liberals. The latter has wedded itself to the former and the symbiotic relationship will wither away if the Tea Party would only deflect the criticisms of their devout enemies.
Remember, if the Tea Party people got their way then no programs that help out Black people and minorities would be funded through taxes. Redistribution of wealth would end.
The Tea Party is still a disjointed, splintered group of disgruntled white people afraid to rally around the only banner they secretly share: the love of Pre-Obama America.
When they do, Black Run America is finished.
The Tea Party is not Black, nor will it ever be and there is an obvious reason for this: the policies Tea Party participants espouse are not universal. They are particular to a distinct people who refuse to admit that their ancestors brought forth these ideals to the land mass that became the United States.
