Alfonzo Rachel, a person with high melanin content in his skin who actually attends Tea Party rallies, knows why this is:

I think it’s safe to say that I’ve been to more tea parties than any of these race baiters, and if they were out to get us, Ida’ been got by now.

The majority of people attending tea parties are white, but it’s not because people of color aren’t welcome. There are no signs that say whites only or no coloreds allowed.

Democrats are the ones who made those signs of segregation legal.

The reason there aren’t that many people of color at tea parties isn’t because of the hostility they’ll face from the people on the right attending, it’s because of the hostility they’ll face from the left who don’t.

It’s because of their respective ethnic group that will disqualify their authenticity if they dare participate.

It’s because of all colors on the left beset on convincing people that the tea party is where angels fear to tread and it’s no place you’d ever want to be.

It’s prejudice on the part of the left that makes for the scarceness of people of color at tea parties.

Weren't you the one saying not too long ago that the allegations about tea parties being predominantly white were A) incorrect, then later B) due entirely to the fact that according to the census bureau only about 13% of the population is black?

So now it's changed to, "There are few people of color at the tea parties because non-attending people of color are hostile to those who do attend"?
