MSNBC’s Chris Matthews again accused the Tea Party of being racist and wondered aloud Thursday if conservative Republicans only counted black people as 3/5 of a person. His reference was to the slavery era when black slaves were only partially counted in census information.

Tea Party activist Jennifer Burke took exception to Matthews’ assertion of racism within the Tea Party. During an interview on The Capitol Hill Show with Tim Constantine, Burke, who is black, talked of her own experience and took Chris Matthews apart. -- tpnn.com
