According to the census the number for non-hispanic whites in the US is 63%. It was at the last census 69%. Sure you have your math correct.

Tea party- 21% Non-white, U.S. 26% Non-white. I would say that's pretty close

I never said they were all old white males. They are not representative of the demographics of America either.

Mr. Reeder: You stated some facts and then made a conjecture that is truly laughable. The Tea party is nowhere near representative of the American public.

So I guess they are all old white men and they all lied about their race. Liberal media threw out their conjecture, lies and stereo type of the tea party and of course, their followers believed it without checking facts.

Chayes I'm not quite sure how you think I'm starting a race war. And there must be great concern from black Americans regarding amnesty if the NAACP, BALA and many other organizations are pressing congress to rethink this decision.

" Democrats are h e l l bent on amnesty for 12 to 20 million illegal immigrants, but who do you think this amnesty is going to hurt the most? Black Americans."

Actually Gunny, I think it'll hurt Republicans more than anyone else. I'm not clear on how it would hurt black Americans at all. 12 million people living here in the shadows, working all too often off the books, and for sub-minimum wage, can suddenly start paying tax and expecting to be paid minimum wage. That sounds like a net gain for everyone to me.

Shaman once again you respond with no substance and only silly rhetoric. You have nothing in your little mind to dispute that democrats only wish to keep black Americans down and unemployed, needing assistance from liberal big government. Come back when you have something meaningful to add besides your same old lines that you wore out the second time you used them.

Be patient. They've GOTTA be warming-up, for the "big-one"...trying to convince everyone, the same, about Republican-conventions.

“According to Gallup, 75 percent of the U.S. population is non-Hispanic White, while 11 percent are non-Hispanic black, and 15 percent belong to other races. Meanwhile, 79% of Tea Party movement supporters are non-Hispanic white, while 6 percent are non-Hispanic black, and 15 percent belong to other races." - GysgtUSMC

"Shaman: ...Yet, it's pretty-much you White-Wingers who are throwing-out "racist", first...and, this letter is the perfect-example.

You use white-wingers and racist in the same sentence. Sham you are no doubt the only racist on this forum. You have no respect for anyone and it shows every time you open your mouth." - GysgtUSMC

Obama's top 50 accomplishments Shamster? Impossible to compile a top 50 list with a catalog of 5 to choose from. Remember, striving to be a modern-day Robin Hood-type hero want-to-be doesn't qualify. You "geniuses" should have paid more attention in arithmetic class and less time being envious of the "rich" kids who had more "stuff" in their lunch bags.

A letter from the Black American Leadership Alliance to Congress reads:

"We write to express our serious concerns with Senate Bill 744. Given the fact that more than 13% of all blacks are unemployed – nearly double that of the national average, it is our position that each Member of Congress must consider the disastrous effects that Senate Bill 744 would have on low skill workers of all races, while paying particular attention to the potential harm to African Americans."

1828 version of Websters.

I truly think that is too modern a version for you. You would need one several centuries before the US became a country.
