Black people love to protest. Whether it is perceived injustices against the assailants of one lone white boy in Jena, Louisiana or for taking Michael Jackson back to the “Dark Side” after his death, Black people enjoy nothing more than a good sit-in.

Protesting and the Black community go hand in hand, with many Black people making a solid living off of the vocation title as “professional agitator” or “community organizer”. In fact, our current president spent the majority of his professional career as a “community organizer” and, like many Black people, built his resume and reputation upon his many accomplishments as a stirrer of Black angst.

However, one protest that Black people are firmly against is the Tea Party Tax Protests that swept the nation on April 15th of 2009 – a backlash against the high taxation by the US Government and the seemingly never ending spending and large deficits racked up in the name of Freedom and Democracy – and will again be held on July 4th.

The Tea Party Protests originated from The Boston Tea Party of 1773, when American Colonialists protests a minor tax on tea that the British Crown had legislated and the Americans were upset about “taxation without representation.”

For decades now, Americans have been taxed up to 45 percent of their income with hardly a peep of protest, but with the election of Barack Obama – the uber “community organizer” – ordinary Americans finally had had enough.

Bailout after Bailout to companies that were failing enraged middle-America, as hard-earned money was given to companies that had failed and were rewarded for failing with tax-payer money.

The Tea Party Protests lacked the most important thing in America however: diversity. There has been a paucity of Black people at all of the rallies, as a Black person at a Tea Party Protest is rarer than a white person at a Black barbershop.

The reason is simple and Stuff Black People Don’t Like will delineate it soon, but one website lays it all out:

“Obama and liberals in Congress are taking us down the road to socialism, seizing control of key banks, insurance companies, the automobile industry, etc. They are currently working on a government funded national health care program which is expected to cost roughly $2 trillion while rationing services.”

Criticism of Barack Obama in the Black community is synonymous with virulent racism. And, more importantly, Black people are great beneficiaries of taxation. Why would you protest something that helps you greatly, thereby endangering your milk ticket and the very thing that subsidizes your existence?

A list of programs that have been created with the specific and stated purpose of helping Black people would be long and would stretch into the quadrillion of dollars, a number so incomprehensible it barely deserves utterance and would defy belief if seen.

To turn the faucet of money coming out Washington DC and state governments would be disastrous to the Black community, thus why Black people are hesitant to join protests with the white people who pay the taxes they in turn depend on to live.

One commenter that Black people love is Janeane Garofalo – a comedian of varying repute – who decry the Tea Parties that attracted 500,000+ white people across the nation as racist:

“Garofalo actually called Party-goers “a bunch of teabagging rednecks,” adding “this is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up.”

Black people do love to protest, but they will never join a protest that endangers the loss of Federally mandated funds that allow the proliferation of their race, at the expense of all others.

  1. I went into a Black babershop one time out of interest. The name of the shop was "Afros and Fades."

    I went in and was stared at suspiciously, but was eventually taken back to a chair.

    The barber asked what I wanted and I looked at him and said "Well, I sure as fuck don't want an Afro."

    The Tea Parties lacked diversity? In fact, the Euro-Americans in attendance are the most diverse group in any listing of American demography. Whether it is pre-migration language, hair color, height, education, religion, or any other measure, the white American peoples are remarkably diverse.

    Black Americans may need education and correction when they make statements that contradict this reality.

    It has always seemed strange to me that "diversity" means the forced injection of people with brown eyes and black hair into a population of people who have blue, green, hazel, and brown eyes, and blond, red, brown and black hair…

    Reading this most ignorant article has proven once again; people like the writer of this garbage and the brainless followers thereof are so far behind in what's really happening right before there eyes. Your time has ended and ours is evolving again. Since you are so vocal, why not write a piece on the originators of civilization—you will be quite suprised I'm sure; Black people are those great minds you racist bigot.

    I can't believe how many of my people (black) believe this crap when the truth is right in front of their face. You can clearly see the author is a racist bigot by reading this statement "To turn the faucet of money coming out Washington DC and state governments would be disastrous to the Black community, thus why Black people are hesitant to join protests with the white people who pay the taxes they in turn depend on to live". The Democrat Party has been racist towards blacks for years, it created the Jim Crow Bill which prevented blacks from doing a lot things, and founded the K.K.K in 1866 after President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. The Tea Party group is not racist it is made of black and white, I am a member and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a member also.

  6. Anon from March 17,

    What article should I read to learn about the originators of civilization?

    I'm curious to know what you speak of, my friend!

    Believe me, once you supply a link, I'll read it!

    Hope you have a great day!

  7. Last anon,

    The Tea Party movement is almost exclusively white. I stand by what I wrote about the faucet of money for government programs that Black people are the disproportionate beneficiaries of (when it comes to money)…

    I have to ask… where is your source that Martin Luther King Jr. is a member of the Tea Party movement from?

    The Tea Party movement is relatively new… like 2009. Didn't MLK die in 1967?

    What is the point to say such things about black people. or any of the minorities. All you do is make us white people seem like idiots. In this time and age do you not realize blacks and other minorities are becoming just as successful if not more than we are. Truly can the government cut the faucet off if the minorities are to be the dominant group as a whole while we will become the minority. Im sorry pal but your ways of thinking are just obsolete

    This article is a bunch of garbage – there are many states with more white people on welfare and government programs than African Amreicans. Look at Idaho and Utah. Most of the people in those states ARE REPUBLICANS. This is how dumb they are – Those white folk that recieve welfare are actually out protesting against taxes to pay for their welfare.

    KLU KLUX KLAN MEMBERS,racist scum bags..
