The NAACP passed a resolution condemning "racist elements" within the Tea Party movement. NAACP president Benjamin Jealous called upon the Tea Party to "expel the bigots and racists in your ranks." In response, Mark Williams, national spokesman for the Tea Party Express, called the NAACP "professional race baiters" who belong on "the trash heap of history...with all the other vile racist groups..." Tea Party activists Alex Poulter of the Kansas City area and Phillip Dennis of the Dallas area see no evidence of racism in their movement.
Think Progress has put together a video demonstrating that there is indeed racism in the Tea Party movement:
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST 1: He’s too black to be President.
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST 2: I’m a proud racist, I’m white.
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST 3: Afro-Leninism! Coming to you on a silver platter, Barack Hussein Obama!
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST 4: Go home wetbacks!
