"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil:  God will not hold us guiltless.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act."

In an alternate reality, 54 million blacks would be alive in America today.  When adjusted for abortion, the number is 39 million.
The National Black Prolife Coalition says an average of 1,000 black babies are aborted every day.  Nationally, nearly one in three black pregnancies ends in abortion each year.  In New York City in 2009, 47%, or 40,798, of the city’s 87,273 abortions were performed on black women.
This led Alveda King, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, to declare that, “The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb!

With a bit of Chicago-machine swagger about him, Bill Clinton, a “war room” veteran, is back in the spotlight and stumping for Obama.
Speaking to Campus Progress last Wednesday, Clinton asked the crowd of young progressives, “Are you fighting?”  Taking talking points almost directly from the mouth of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz (D.-Fla.), the former President asserted, “There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the voter Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit a franchise that we see today." arrived on the campus of the University of California, Merced, last May to gather signatures on a petition calling for a redistribution of grade-point averages.  Not surprisingly, few star students wanted to share the fruits of their academic labors.

But the logic was liberally sound.  Students who worked hard and studied longer than their peers—in the spirit of fairness—should be willing to sacrifice their higher GPAs to benefit those whose grades weren’t so high due to laziness or ineptitude (or both).

Now that the political dust is settling, 2010 can be officially coined as the “Year of the Tea Party” (or something like that).

Amazingly, the boom that was Obama’s historic election and subsequent two-year reign of unchecked activist governance has led to Tuesday’s Democratic bust. And thus, the Democrats’ Progressive monopoly has been squelched by the Tea Party’s now apparent ability to translate protest into political power. 

In recent weeks, the corrupt procedural process and the subsequent passing and signing of President Obama’s health care overhaul have left many Americans feeling deeply disenchanted and disappointed.

But many mainstream media outlets have been reporting that the Tea Party movement, in reaction to the federal government’s unprecedented intervention into the American health care system, is a movement of “old racist white people.”

It seems almost laughable, the utter hypocrisy of major broadcast networks and newspapers reporting on allegations of congressmen having racial slurs shouted at them by a misguided few. Paradoxically, you would be hard pressed to see those same media outlets make the case that the supposed race baiters who (allegedly) screamed N____ and other racist and insensitive statements at Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga), Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass), were saying the same racist and incendiary statements repeated constantly by rappers like Jay Z (who recently visited the Situation Room with President Obama) on bestselling rap albums for the last two decades.

Yes folks, we have seen this movie before.

Time and time again, those on the Left in the media and persons with a specific political agenda, associate any white person who has the ‘audacity’ to espouse any substantive disagreement to President Obama and his policies, with racist, hate speech hurling Klansmen.

Yes, the majority of Tea Party protesters are white men and women. But white men and women make up the majority of the American population. In fact, the U.S Census Bureau concludes that in 2008 white Americans made up 79.8 percent of the population, and black Americans were 12.8 percent.

What’s more, the 92 percent of blacks who voted for President Obama in 2008 are still “giving him a chance.”

But there is more to consider.

What two things do Angela McGlowan, former Fox News political analyst and Republican candidate for the 1st congressional district in Mississippi, Kenneth Blackwell, former Secretary of State of Ohio and current Vice Chairman of the Republican National Committee’s Platform Committee and Herman Cain, radio talk show host and former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza have in common? They are all proud proponents of the Tea Party movement and yes, you guessed it, they are all Black.

The old ‘dinosaur media’ would have you believe that like the author of this opinion piece, not only do black conservatives not exist; they are certainly not present at any Tea Party rallies.

But sadly, this is contrary to fact.

“We want our country back” (a widely used Tea Party chant) is not an attack on all things minority, it simply illustrates the increasing frustration that hardworking Americans have over the growing number in our society who are all but comfortable with being “wards of the State,” on our dime. “We want our country back” from those at the highest levels of federal government who admire and quote communists and socialists.

The Tea Party movement, rooted in individual volition, represents a contingent of concerned Americans of all races and ethnic backgrounds, who at the end of the day, don’t want their hard earned income to be “spread around” or “redistributed.”

Unlike most things liberal, the Tea Party movement does not have a “racial quota” to meet.

The Tea Party is not and never has been about race; but instead, exists only to argue why we are, and what we must do to remain, the greatest country in the history of the world.
