Black Tea Partiers Called “Sell Out Negroes” Who “Wish They Were White” At NAACP Convention

If you’re black, then you’re supposed to subscribe to liberal dogma. There is no thinking for your self, apparently.

I don’t understand why so many on the left feel threatened by minorities who are conservative. The left either likes to ignore the presence of minorities in the conservative/tea party/libertarian ranks, or else accuse the minorities in those movements of being sell-outs. Or unauthentic, though I’m not sure how anyone can fail to authentically be whatever ethnicity they are just by thinking a certain way.

Really, I think the left feels threatened by conservatives who are something other than Caucasian because it throws a monkey wrench in the narrative. The fall-back talking point for the left is that the limited government movement motivated by racism and/or a desire to keep the poor, downtrodden masses poor and downtrodden. But if blacks, for instance, are a part of the limited government movement too then the race card isn’t nearly as effective.

It’s hard to accuse a movement of being racist when it’s inclusive of all races.

There’s something exploitative in it too, though. See, blacks and other minorities are seen, inherently, as victims by the left to be exploited for political gain by both politicians and organizations like the NAACP alike. But if the minorities stop seeing themselves as victims, the NAACP and the liberal politicians will lose chunks of their power base.

The minorities can’t be allowed to wander off the liberal plantation, to put it another way, which is why minorities who do are so viciously attacked. For what it’s worth, I don’t think your skin color has to dictate what you think.
