"James McClatchy (above), editor of the Sacramento Bee and long-time Sacramento resident, supported the street-raising project. He believed that maintaining a positive image of the city justified the extreme measures needed to raise the streets by 15 feet. He printed nume[r]ous articles in his newspaper in support of the cause."

Question by Da Realest Pymp: What on Earth is wrong with the Tea Party?
I planned on attending a Tea Party rally the other day, and as a black man I had heard they were very accepting of minorities. I heard this on Fox News

However, as I was walking in with my sign, I was approached by an older white gentleman and was told that I wold have to pack up my things and go home. I inquired, ‘Why?’ because I am a lifelong supporter of small government and low taxes. He declined to answer, but raised his voice and accused me of being an infiltrator, whatever that is. By this time quite a throng had gathered around us, and I could feel all the beady eyes resting uncomfortably upon me as I got up to leave

I asked him once more what the problem was, but he did not answer, but I did here one of them mutter, ‘You’re the wrong color’

  6. Typical tea party. You shouldn’t have left. I would have pulled out my cell and started video taping them.

    Chances are you’ll pay lower taxes under a democrat president. Come to the Dem party where ALL people are welcome.

  13. I think the comment, made by the man as you got up to leave, is probably representative of Republican opinion in the main.

  18. That’s not surprising.

    The Tea Party is an offshoot of the GOP’s “white power” supremacist base after all.

  19. Hmmm! Maybe you should have reported this guy to the Atlanta Tea Party organizer… He happens to be Black… That is of course, if you are telling the truth, which I highly doubt.

  20. I’m not surprised about your story and I’m not surprised if you’re lying. If that was true you should told him to f*ck off then do your thing.
