Yes I am a Social Worker. So I know this to be true to an extent. I coined "Subtle Racism" I did a paper on the subject. Things that make people who think they are not racist, show that they really are. However there is a difference in Prejudice and Racism. I will not cover that right now. My point is the Tea Party. It is full of Subtle Racist. Who really think they are not, however one only has to do a little digging to see that they really are. As well they are showing it more and more. I made a hub entitled "Racist Tea Party Movement In America" It explains some of it.
