I'm going to have to agree with starsnstripes162. I look at the crowd at the Sharpton Rally. Yes there were some whites. But as far as percentages go... Looks like 90%+ black.
Not that there is anything wrong with that. But if I'm not mistaken, the country has roughly 12-13% african American population. Looking at the Tea Party photo's, they were far more representative of the population than Mr. Sharptons rally.
If any rally is racist, wouldn't common sense say it's the the rally that had such a disproportionate number of one certain race over another as it relates to the general population?
Not too the racist liberals I guess.

Couldn't help but notice in the clips of the speakers I saw. One rally was about personal liberty, self sufficiency and freedom. The other was about hand outs and legislation from the government.
One rally was about the individual being you are important and can do anything you set your dreams on. The other was, though we have gone far. We need to force others to use the power of government to favor our race over others.
One rally poked fun at the other, trying to say they are the ones that told them not to march. The other... Was al about self reflection.

I just don't understand why progressives call the conservative movement racist, when it's so absolutly clear that it's the Al Sharpton's of the world that try to base everything possible on the color of a person's skin.

Sharpton's rally didn't have a mix of races. BS. Look at the pictures, you'll see more ethnic and racial diversity there than the tea partiers. Try again twit.

Beck's rally or what i could see on CNN today which by the way was extremely biased for some reason, was great. It seems everybody wants to come together to become a stronger America. I noticed that the Sharpton rally did not have a mix of different races. Why was that? Beck's rally invited everyone. I really don't believe that the other rally would have welcomed me with open arms. I think the Sharpton rally is jealous that so many people of different races came together for consideration of others and togetherness. But some have an agenda and it isn't GB.
