    Sounds like they need a thesaurus…for that matter the Republican party could be described as “overwhelmingly white” and how would it be perceived if they said that Al Sharptons event was “overwhelmingly black”??? Can’t they hear how racist this sounds??? Don’t they know that the reverse racial comments add to the divide???? They are trying to demonize the Tea Party by trying to portray them as ‘angry white racist’…
