First Black Tea Party Forms in Houston
big government ^ | 1/20/11 | James M. Simpson

Posted on 01/20/2011 7:23:29 PM PST by Nachum

Anita MonCrief, infamous ACORN whistleblower, was asked to go on Sean Hannity’s radio show Thursday the 20th to discuss the founding of America’s first black Tea Party.

Named after the first person to die in the Revolutionary War, the Crispus Attucks Tea Party was founded January 18th, 2011, at “This Is It” soul food restaurant in the heart of Houston, Texas’ 3rd district. (Read the interesting original court documents about the “Boston Massacre,” including a dramatic description of Attucks’ slaying, here.)

The 3rd district is Represented by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, and was the focal point of rampant ACORN-style vote fraud and widespread voter intimidation this past November. It is thus fitting that this tea party had its inaugural meeting right down the street from Lee’s residence.

With the typical politesse and considerate attitude of conservatives — always left unreported by the press (do ya think?) – Rep. Lee was extended an invitation to the event. And with typical leftist rudeness, Lee snubbed it. Wonder why? These are her constituents, after all.

Surprisingly, the local Fox News channel reporting on the event hastened to observe that many attendees at this founding meeting were white. Simply unbelievable. Is it not even possible to attend an event in support of the group without the information being somehow skewed by the media to suggest that it wasn’t “authentic” because white people were there???

Sharpton, Jackson, et al will call this a racist organization, or will they?

Really...this is stupid. Why are they intentionally segregating themselves?

(no I didn’t read the entire article)

“Why are they intentionally segregating themselves?”

Because they are IGNORED by the MSM when they are with the rest of the Tea Party...which would I’m sure is fine with them. But then the MSM takes it one step further and calls the Tea Party racist or at least lily white. They really have no other way to stop this propaganda.

"Why are they intentionally segregating themselves?"

Because they are black, of course. Otherwise, they probably wouldn't be allowed to segregate.

So blacks aren't racist and by having a Black Tea Party it couldn't possibly be racist? Also, is their something wrong with being 'lily white'?

They really have no other way to stop this propaganda.

Just not sure which propaganda you are talking about. The propaganda that whites are evil or the propaganda that it is alright for blacks to use race but whites are racist?

I understand your point, but I am really happy that they are joining the force. It will gradually be ok for more of our fellow Americans to be TEA partiers of any color you want.

This is intentional segregation and will not bode well for the TEA party idea in general.

Not a good thing, IMO.

>> This is intentional segregation and will not bode well for the TEA party idea in general.

In the context that I have no concern for the Left’s distortions, I disagree with the premise that the formation of likeness constitutes segregation.

Providing the Tea Party principles are held, our sense of unity cannot be bound to the notion that we must at all times be indistinguishable from one another - in any sense.

I definitely approve of a Tea Party group that blacks who don't have easy access to other Tea Party groups can get to.

I think the label "Black Tea Party" should be shouted down at the top of our lungs.

This is not a black/white thing, it's an "American" thing.

They are simply stepping up as Americans like every patriot in the Tea Party, and we heartily welcome them.

“The media is calling us a “black Tea Party” but we are simply a Tea Party set up in a urban minority area. All are welcome. We are also a party of the Texas Tea Party Federation.”

I agree, it is nice for people to hear. But I can see the other side too. :)

Their mission statement reads in part:

“To build a strong base of conservative Black entrepreneurs, elected officials and constituents that provide Black conservatives a viable way to express and implement their conservative values politically.”

Well, is there not tons of criticism of black overwhelming adherence to the Democratic Party? Why then are conservative blacks castigated when they try to actively pull blacks away from the Democratic Party?

If we are to be truly colorblind, then we must cease to notice that 90% of blacks vote Democrat and stop repeatedly talking about it. If we are to be truly colorblind, we must stop repeatedly relating the wrongdoings of individual blacks to the entire group. It is not right to see color when blacks do something negative, yet declare colorblindness when blacks do something positive.

This particular Tea Party movement includes blacks, whites, etc. trying, among other things, to counter the overwhelming trend of black adherence to the Democratic Party. I have no complaint and I sense that many of the complainers are actually comfortable with the current status quo.

This is excellent.

Hopefully this group will bring forth a good candidate against Queen Sheila.

Sheila is such a disgusting career communist racist. Not only is she extremely bigoted, her vanity knows no bounds.

She was a jerk on City Council. She’s been a jerk ever since. She’s an embarassment to all of us who live in her district.

And she’s a transplant from New York ! But then, as someone “brought here in shackles” (according to her) she feels she deserves her position.

Thanks for that clarification. Once again, the MSM seeks to divide.

Lets pray for their success...and kick some a** between prayers...:)
