    The movement has grown large enough where we are starting to have to kick members with certain mindsets out of their leadership positions.

    For all those who think teapartiers accept racism I implore you to read the article

    From what i've read up on and seen of Ben Jealous he is a very fairminded man.

    He may see some things as racist when they aren't but considering his age I find it easy to overlook that and look into what the core message of what he has said is. I think he is a good man.

    TruthMatters you need to stop with the drive by talking points posts. Keep them out of my threads I want honest and open discussions not talking points meant to hurt people's feelings and demean entire groups based on the actions of a few individuals.

    Thanks in advance.

    BTW your post is sorta hypocritical considering this thread is an EXAMPLE OF the TeaParty doing the very things your post claimst they dont.
