Keith Olbermann and people of color

Keith Olbermann mocked the Tea Party movement by demanding to know where the "people of color" were, insinuating that it was a movement of racists. I had to track the clip down, because I've found it odd that I'm only hearing from the left wing on the issue; the people I've talked to and heard from on the right don't seem to give a damn about color. (Not that there aren't racists -- on both sides.)

Well, there it was, Olbermann pleading with Tea Party activists to admit they were motivated by racism. He then read from conservative blogs, and followed each reading by saying over and over, "Well my response to this would be: Where are the people of color at the Tea parties?" Even when the blog was unrelated to any issue of race.

Yeah, someone's obsessing on race, that's for sure.

Mr. Olbermann, here are the people of color at the Tea Parties:

Olbermann must feel very lonely, being the sole player in a race card game. Let's get over this racism smokescreen. There is bigotry in the world, plenty enough to challenge us, without inventing it where it doesn't exist.

My conclusion: Keith Olbermann is an ass.
