Racism rampant in 2010 Tea Party?!?
If you know anything about me you know I LOVE Rachel Maddow. She is not only my idol, but also my long lost twin. Being a televisionless household, I do not have the opportunity to watch her show in the evening, so every morning I download her podcast from the previous evening and that is how I begin my day.
I could easily post her video everyday as my blog, but you could just as easily go to rachel.msnbc.com and watch it for yourself. Today is an exception, because there was a segment that I feel is extremely important to share. It stems from a speech given at the Tea Party Convention.
It is 2010 right? Everyone should know what is really going on with the far Right in this country.
Feb. 8: Rachel Maddow reviews the history of how “literacy tests” were used to prevent black people from voting in America and why Tom Tancredo’s opening speech to the Tea Party Convention calling for the return of those tests is so abhorrent. Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree shares his insights on racism in the United States.
