no imagination needed

... to guess how a non-white version of a certain much-hyped vocal national "grass-roots" movement would go over with the mainstream media:


what if the tea party was black?
holding guns like the black panther party was back?
if al was rush limbaugh and jesse was sean hannity
and tavis was glenn beck
would they harm they families?
if sarah palin was suddenly sistah souljah
would they leave it with the votes
or go and get the soldiers?
y'all know if the tea party was black
the government would have been
had the army attack!

what if michael baisden was on ya FM dial
for 3 hours every day calling the president foul?
would they say free speech or find evidence how
to charge him with treason
like see he's unamerican now?
what if minister farrakhan prayed for the death
of the commander in chief that he be laid to rest?
would they treat it as the gravest threat
or never make an arrest
even today he's still hated for less?

what if president obama would have lost the election?
quit his job so he could go talk to the left and
bash the government for being off of direction
fraught with deception?
and told black people they want all of our weapons
and we want our own country and called for secession?
would he be arrested and tossed in corrections
for trying to foster aggression
against the people's lawful selection?
our question's ...

what if the tea party was black?
holding guns like the black panther party was back?
if al was rush limbaugh and jesse was sean hannity
and tavis was glenn beck
would they harm they families?
if sarah palin was suddenly sistah souljah
would they leave it with the votes
or go and get the soldiers?
y'all know if the tea party was black
the government would have been
had the army attack!

what if black people went on facebook and made a page
that for the death of the president-elect we prayed?
would the creators be tazed and thrown in a cage?
we know the page wouldn't have
been displayed all these days!
what if jeremiah wright said that everybody white
wasn't a real america
would you feel scared of him?
if he had a militia with pictures
that depict the president as hitler
they would kill and bury that
wait ...

what if cynthia mckinney lamented
the winning of the new president
and hinted he wasn't really a true resident
with no proof or evidence?
would the media treat it like a huge press event?
they would have attacked whatever group she represents!
they would have called her a kook on precedent
and any network that gave her due preference
would be the laughing stock of the news
so our question is ...

what if the tea party was black?
holding guns like the black panther party was back?
if al was rush limbaugh and jesse was sean hannity
and tavis was glenn beck
would they harm they families?
if sarah palin was suddenly sistah souljah
would they leave it with the votes
or go and get the soldiers?
y'all know if the tea party was black
the government would have been
had the army attack!
