NAACP resolution on alleged tea party racism: What's your view?

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is expected to pass a resolution today condemning the tea party for 'explicitly racist behavior.'

The tea party movement has been criticized before for allegedly harboring racist attitudes toward President Obama. Now the NAACP is set to vote on a resolution condemning supporters of the tea party for displaying "signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically." It calls "the racist elements" within the movement "a threat to progress."

Have you attended a tea party rally? If so, have you witnessed displays of racism? What do you see as the tea party's primary goals?
