BET Wire: Did Rep. Alan Grayson Cross the Line With Tea Party/KKK Comparison?
Crossing the Line
Florida Rep. Alan Grayson is under fire for a fundraising email that uses a burning Ku Klux Klan flag to represent the "T" in Tea Party. DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said it was "disappointing" and former congressman Alan West called on Black leaders to denounce the email. Grayson is unmoved. “If the hood fits, wear it,” he said, adding that the far-right faction has a history of making racist remarks.
