Republicans: The Party of White

"If Democratic majorities survive the backlash against big government in this election cycle, it will be because Republicans, the party of the right, became the 'Party of White.' ....

"'s not true, that Republicans, all Republicans are racist. That would be silly and wrong. But nowadays, if you are racist, you're probably a Republican. "
- Bill Maher on ABC

Is it any surprise the Tea Party movement is notoriously 99.8% white in an America that is 65% white? I was just looking at a Facebook group of "Conservative Musicians" .... 100% white. Could it be anymore obvious?

UPDATE: Could it be anymore obvious?
