What an outrageous comment. ::)

André Carson, a Democratic representative from Indiana and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, suggested last week that certain members of the tea party in Congress are indistinguishable from violent racists.

"This is the effort that we're seeing of Jim Crow. Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens," Carson said at a caucus event in Miami on Aug. 22. "Some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me ... hanging on a tree."

Jeese, these people are so ignorant and hateful. I thought Debbie "Downer" Wasser-Schultz was the last to rant the Jim Crow line. Now a black fearmongers. Where's the violence from the TP, those people even pick up the trash when they leave.
