What if the tea baggers were black?

(from BAR) Polite white society ponders the nature of the Tea Party “movement,” applauding, ignoring or deriding their fellow Euro-Americans but seldom considering them prime candidates for suppression by deadly force and endless imprisonment. But what if the rowdy rabble were Black? To ask the question is to answer it.

my first thought was St. Ronnie restricting weapons rights during his tenure as California's governor. Too bad we don't need to look to the past to see this glaring double standard.

The media's reaction would be horrific. I can already see Fox & Friends' hosts calling people lazy and labeling everyone as looking for a handout. There would already have been unprovoked police violence.
