Tea Party Leaders Speak Out on Racism in National on Air Townhall Broadcast
LOS ANGELES - National and local Tea Party leaders will answer charges that tea party groups are racist or harbor racist elements. They will discuss the NAACP resolution condemning them for not denouncing racists within tea party affiliates, and tell why they accuse the NAACP of playing the race card. The Tea Party leaders will tell how and what steps if any they are taking to purge racist elements within the various affiliates. The phone lines will be open for listeners nationally to dialogue with tea party leaders on racism and their party.
The on-air townhall airs on Hutchinson Report on Saturday, July 31, from Noon to 1:00 PM on KPFK-Radio 90.7 FM Los Angeles and streamed on kpfk.org. It will be videocast on hutchinsonreport.tv from Noon to 2:00PM.
“This is the first national radio on air townhall that exclusively features tea party leaders discussing race and racism and their party, “says Hutchinson Report Host Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “This is a milestone in broadcasting. It will lift and broaden the public dialogue on the tea party and the thorny issue of race.”
