Fallout From The NAACP's Tea Party Resolution
Kansas City, MO – Last week, NAACP delegates debated and voted on a resolution calling the Tea Party movement to repudiate "racist elements." But convention attendees seemed to disagree on whether the issue should be the Tea Party's central agenda, or just fringe members.
KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross brings you voices from the convention, including NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous and Reverend Al Sharpton. She also speaks to Brendan Steinhauser, of Freedomworks, a group that helps organizes local Tea Party groups.
Plus, Susan B. Wilson speaks to Cynthia Tucker, columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who argues in a recent column that the NAACP set back its agenda by taking on the issue of racism in the Tea Party.
