    Yes, Dr. May gave a great speech at our Lubbock Tea Party. However, not only is he white, he is a regular blogger on our local newspaper’s website (as “Mr. Conservative”), and his contributions to our Tea Party certainly were reported by the paper and by TV stations. This speech does appear to be Dr. May’s words. The black gentleman who spoke at our Tea Party is Dr. Robert L. McKenzie, who is a minister as well as the executive director of the Lubbock Boys’ and Girls’ Club. His speech was excellent as well. Our Sheriff David Guiterrez, also a good speaker, gave a very inspiring speech. There were several other speakers at our courthouse that day, and some good music as well. We had a great Tea Party, well attended by a variety of citizens, black, white, Latino, men, women, children, and a few conservative and well-behaved canines. I am not pleased by the racial implications connected with our city in this posting that has made rounds across the country. Why not dig up a copy of Dr. McKenzie’s speech and post it also? And Sheriff Guiterrez’s speech, and the rest of them? Yes, Dr. May’s speech is good. So were the others. I was there.
