If they want their, white intolerant racist, America back they are out of luck.

"If Obama’s first legislative priority had been immigration or financial reform or climate change, we would have seen the same trajectory. The conjunction of a black president and a female speaker of the House — topped off by a wise Latina on the Supreme Court and a powerful gay Congressional committee chairman — would sow fears of disenfranchisement among a dwindling and threatened minority in the country no matter what policies were in play."
~Frank Rich, New York Times

It has been a mad weekend. I spent the last four days at ArtExpoNYC with my artist wife at her booth showing her art work, hence no blogging. New York City is a great city and the diversity of the people attending the event is indicative of the diversity of not just New York City but of America. The show was a huge event with artists from all over the world which reflected the creativity of a diverse slice of society. I didn't see political statements reflected in the art but a diverse cultural statement in the art was apparent. I doubt that the mostly older white Tea Baggers would have approved of that diversity, "diversity" not being their favorite word. But it is clear that all people are not walking to the same beat and that the Tea Baggers are a lonely group of people who lack diversity and toleration and are holding on to that last vestige of a perceived American ideology, that has in fact passed them by. By 2012 babies born to white Americans will be in the minority. America is changing, in 2012 more babies will be born to black, hispanic and asian Americans than to their white counterparts. This is the problem for the Tea Baggers , their perceived loss of control of America. As Frank Rich pointed out in his piece, in the New York Times, they are upset about a black man in the white house, a Puerto Rican American woman on the supreme court and woman speaker of the house. If they want their, white intolerant racist, America back they are out of luck.
