Huntsville, Alabama, April 4, 2010 - Blogger and Author Kevin Jackson discusses race during a Tea Party Express rally in Shuttle Park at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, the nineteenth stop in a 43-city tour across the country which will conclude with a large rally in Washington, D.C. on April 15, Tax Day. The Tea Party has been criticized of late with charges of racism and inciting violence in the wake of the health care vote. It has been careful during the tour to show itself as inclusive and peaceful. The Tea Party Express tour titled "Just Vote Them Out" is taking an aggressive approach by targeting Democratic incumbents competitive districts, as well as Republicans deemed not conservative enough who are facing primary challenges from more conservative candidates. While not endorsing any candidates so far, the Tea Party Express does not hide its desire to replace incumbents with new conservatives that more closely hew to its goals of smaller government and less taxes..
