Charlie Rangel says the Tea Party is just a bunch of white crackers, the same people who fought civil rights.
I wonder what black members of the Tea Party think about that?
Oh, and by the way Charlie, it was white Democrats who fought civil rights legislation. Can you say Jim Crow?
"White Democrats had regained political power in every Southern state. These conservative, white, Democratic Redeemer governments legislated Jim Crow laws, segregating black people from the white population."
And who was it that filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Democrats!
