Playing the Race Card – A Bad Deal for Everyone

RaceCardEvent Announcement

SANTA MONICA, CA, Saturday, November 16th 2013 at the Santa Monica Library auditorium on how those who promote racial divisiveness are hurting America.  Politicians (along with activists, pundits and many in the media) now routinely charge racism against those who oppose their point of view. Tea Parties and other organizations that support free enterprise, limited government, and conservative positions are frequently targeted with such hate speech on a daily basis. On Oct 21st a Florida Congressman even compared Tea Parties to the Klu Klux Klan. “Playing the race card” quickly ends constructive dialogue and prevents the ability of people with diverse viewpoints to get together and find solutions to problems. Worst of all, indiscriminately playing the race card trivializes the meaning of the word “racism” and undercuts the ongoing struggle to end genuine racism.



Participating in the panel discussion will be:
