Blacks and the tea party…by George Bennett | February 8th, 2011
Marcus, author of Confessions of a Black Conservative: How the Left has Shattered the Dreams of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Black America, raised the race issue at Monday’s Rick Scott budget rollout rally shortly after finishing a tribute to Sarah Palin and other conservative women to the tune of the Motown classic My Girl.
“I have been to well over 200 tea parties around this country, including Alaska….I have a major revelation for the media: It ain’t about race,” Marcus said to loud applause.
Marcus told the crowd he’s often asked “Where are the black people?” His response: “I don’t know. They’re still hung up on that Barack Obama-is-black thing…I got over it.”
