MuskegonPundit: Summit set to address “Politics of Race”
Summit set to address “Politics of Race” - Holland, MI - The Holland Sentinel
Is the tea party racist?
That’s one of the questions a panel will explore at next week’s “Politics of Race” summit — hosted by the Ottawa County Patriots themselves.
The group’s founder, Jim Chiodo, was inspired to organize the event, in part, because of the “racial divide” caused by the Trayvon Martin case and its subsequent media coverage, he said.
“I’ve noticed when somebody’s political opinion is different than yours, and they don’t have a logical argument, they fall back on name-calling,” including using terms such as “racist,” Chiodo said.
The panel discussion will be 7-9 p.m. Wednesday (July 11) at the Howard Miller Library, 14 S. Church St., in Zeeland. Doors open at 6:15.
