Naacp Tea Party Movement Racism Resolution – The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is prepared to release a resolution that condemns the racist group that they believes stems from the tea party movement. The measure will receive a vote this week by NAACP delegates, and must receive at least half of the votes to pass. The measure asks that “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”
Representatives for the organization have said that they are fairly certain that the resolution will be approved during the vote. Tea Party conservatives have been dealing with charges of racism since the party became popular over the course of the last year. A recent poll that was conducted by ABC news stated that 28 percent of all Americans see underlying racial prejudices in the group.
“I just don’t see racism in the tea party movement.” Said Brendan Steinhauser, who serves as director of campaigns for the group Freedomworks. “Racism is something we’re absolutely opposed to.”
It will be interesting to see how the charges are handled by some of the larger Tea Party Movement supporters like Sarah Palin and Rand Paul. Both have come under fire since they openly supported the group, but have not withdrawn their support.
