    Beck: Help us restore traditional American values

    WASHINGTON – Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King's message. Civil rights leaders who accused the group of hijacking King's legacy held their own rally and march.

    Beck: Help us restore traditional American values - Yahoo! News

    the irony...when do other crowds get labeled as predominantly this color or ethnicity....especially when talking about king's message where he dreamed one day we would not be judged by the color of our skin, but the content of our character

    why was it important to focus on the skin color?

    So, let me get this straight. The us population is 87% white, and the rally attenders were 87% white and someone says there is a problem?

    When it's pointed out that the Republican Party is 90% white and nearly all Christian, they deny it.

    Why?

    After all, they target minorities. Next, they'll be denying that.
