I believe the Tea Party movement is, if not racist, certainly exclusionary. The Tea Party stance seems to be "we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it any more". Unfortunately, the "we" involved too often seems to be predominately white, conservative, religious, and anti-diversity (of almost any kind). I feel history will be unkind to the Tea Partyers, for the world will only continue to become one huge stirred-up gumbo of all colors, creeds, orientations, income levels, nationalities, loyalties, biases and beliefs. The job of all right-minded people should be to try to find ways to get along, not build walls between us. I feel that any movement that tries to assert the perceived rights of "our sort" — whether that sort is a Tea Party, Christian Coalition, jihad, Aryan Nation, Jugglers for Jehovah, or Southern Connecticut Amalgamated Dishwashers Credit Union — will eventually wink out of existence. As it should.
