This is one of the oddest videos I've seen in a while.
Below, you're about to see a man who apparently doesn't like the Tea Party and any black person who is involved with the movement. In fact, he goes on to make some outlandish statements, such as whites are the only ones who are capable of racism. And that's just the beginning.
Here is a collection of some of what you're about to hear:
"You hate the president because he is black, and you think the white race is superior."
"As far as the black sell outs who wish they were white and are part of the Tea Party, these sell-out Negroes have no business speaking for and joining with racists who want to kick them back into slavery."
"No, they're not talking, they're too dumb to talk. All they're talking about is Tea Party, or white supremacy, blacks should go back to Africa, America was better 400 years ago."
All the tea Party cares about is "hating black people."
Racism is "a genetic trait of whites."
"You can't find that kind of hatred in anybody but white people."
"This is hatred. This is racism. ... And it's only [something] white people are capable of. Only white people."
The video is below:
That's certainly a lot to stomach. In fact, the man's statements are so incredible that undoubtedly some will wonder if the video is real. We did. So we contacted the Tea Party group from San Diego supposedly responsible for posting the video on YouTube. We have yet to hear back. When we do, we will let you know.
However, it is worth pointing out that, as the title in the video claims, there was indeed a Tea Party event happening in L.A. on July 24. It was in protest of the NAACP, and was spearheaded by black Tea Party members. A press release explains:
LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- The newly formed black led South Central L.A. Tea Party group will hold a major rally to expose the lies and misinformation of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) during its102nd annual convention in Los Angeles on July 24. The purpose of the rally is to bring attention to the failed liberal big government agenda of the NAACP and to expose their lies and hypocrisy on race issues.
Who: South Central L.A. Tea Party
What: Rally to expose the failed big government agenda and lies of the NAACP
When: Sunday, July 24, 2011, from 2-4 p.m.
Where:1201 S Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90015 (Outside the L.A. Convention Center- West Hall).
So, it would certainly make sense for a black man to show up and express his displeasure over fellow blacks expressing conservative viewpoints.
Also, it's worth noting that the videographer doesn't appear to goad the man in to saying what he said. He doesn't appear to pretend to be a fellow liberal trying to capture some banter between the two, or make equally divisive statements in order to make the man feel comfortable enough to let down his guard. From the video, it appears the videographer is simply asking the man questions about his opinions, an the man obliges with some fiery answers.
The Blaze spoke with Rich of the San Diego Tea Party about the video. He said he couldn't speak to specific details about the video or those seen in it because he was not the original poster of the video. Rather, he saw the video posted by a YouTube poster called GeauxNOSaints. However, in that video, Rich said, the man who says the most inflammatory remarks doesn't appear until well into it. So, he decided to re-edit the video to feature the man at the beginning.
Here's that original video:
The YouTube description in that video says its the work of a group called derailamnesty.com. We've reached out to them but have yet to hear back.
