Is It Not Worth Mentioning That One of the Tea Party Standard Bearers in the Republican Primary is Black?

You can say what you will about the Tea Party, but since it’s long crystallized into the public consciousness that the Tea Party movement is borne of racism and hate and white male privilege, it should at least be pointed out that the two candidates for Pres who arguably are the MOST a part of the Tea Party milieu are a black man and a woman.

On that front, I do have to second Jay Nordlinger. Again, that’s not the end of the argument, but it is at least a data point worth being conscious of.
