Answering a question from a CNN reporter, Project 21 members Niger Innis (of the Congress of Racial Equality) and Bob Parks, along with Frantz Kebreau of the National Association for the Advancement of Conservative People of All Colors, question the validity of claims that the tea party movement is racist. Niger points out the "agent provocateur" angle, Bob talks about misrepresentation and Frantz questions whether the charges of racism are hyped from the very start.

Too much great stuff in here to summarize further. Just watch it all!

Okay, I have to share one great line from Niger Innis in the video above at the 6 minute mark: "Jackie Robinson did not complain about fastballs."
