First Lady Michelle Obama brought renewed energy to the NAACP today, delivering the keynote speech at the annual convention one day before the nation's largest civil rights group is expected to condemn what it calls racist elements in the Tea Party movement.
The nation's largest and oldest civil rights organization will vote on the resolution Tuesday during its annual convention in Kansas City, Mo. In addition to jobs and the economy, anti-Tea Party activism has been a large focus of the gathering, which conservative leaders say is driven solely by a political agenda.
The resolution is part of the movement to realign people against the Tea Party, which has emerged as a strong grassroots, albeit fragmented, force across the country.
"We have to close the enthusiasm gap," NAACP president Ben Jealous said in an interview with the Associated Press Friday. "The danger of the Tea Party is that people see them and think about periods in history when groups like them were much more powerful than they are now, and so a lot of what we spend energy doing is explaining to people what reality is, and that the reality is that the majority from 2008 still exists."
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, in coordination with 170 other groups, including labor unions, is planning a protest march in Washington, D.C., Oct. 10 as the next step in building momentum against the Tea Party.

I don't live in the same country they do anymore.
These people are meatheads. They are also superb whiners.
The largest and oldest civil right organization in the US is the National Rifle Association.
I’ve never met a racists TEA party member.
But the NAACP is, by name, a racist hate organization.
“In March, Tea Party protesters opposing the health care bill shouted racial slurs at black House members in the halls of Congress. Liberal blogs have also seized on signs that have appeared in Tea Party protests, comparing President Obama to a monkey.”
Keep repeating a lie long enough and maybe people will believe you? Any FReeper knows this is a lie and I hope Breitbart gets Huma Khan and ABC to retract.
Michelle: “Let’s face it, ‘Whitey’ is racist.”
It’s racist to be an effective political opponent.”
IMO, the NAACP has yet to see the racist side of most AMERICANS.
Michelle Obama is an idiot.
Its a coordinated attack and an attempt to distract and intimidate anyone from going after the white house over the black pampers.
This coming from a woman who attended a racist, anti-Semitic church for years with her husband.
Michelle: Lets face it, Whitey is racist.”
We just cannot make up these kinds of statements!!
From a person who allegedly has a real college ‘education’.
What’s the use of being leftist if you can’t lie and make up stuff.
Do any white people attend NAACP meetings? Are they featured in photo-ops? Why does that make the Tea Party racist if Blacks aren’t featured in photos and not the NAACP? Come on Michelle, inquiring minds want to know.
Coming from an author names Huma Khan, should we expect anything different?
Needed a gag and barf alert.
