Their opposition is politically and not racially motivated. All true Americans regardless of color support the protesting of forced legislation that was written and approved by big business for big business i.e the Insurance Industry and their overseers the Big Banking Corporations and the non-Federal IRS. The combination of topics opposed by the tea party people cross the bounds of race, creed, color and religion so why use the 'race card'? The reasons is a simple one because it takes the eye off the actual subject being protested and stirs up long held divisions. Divide and conquer but perhaps the average American will see through this disinformation and see it for what it really is - lies. Every time some one opposes Barry's (Barry Soetoro - Obama's real name on his real birth certificate) ill conceived legislation they are labeled as such and it happens too often to be an accident. Peaceful protesting against democratic government is not just a right it is an obligation that all true citizens should uphold regardless of the color of their skin.
