Tea party rejects NAACP's racism claims, but concerns exist

Accusations about racism within the tea party have rumbled for a year, but they suddenly exploded this week with a resolution at the NAACP convention in Kansas City saying the party is attracting people and groups hostile to minorities. The allegations prompted irate denials from tea party supporters, and even critics make it clear that they're not accusing all tea parties or party members of racism. Still, it's clear that some with racist agendas are trying to make inroads into the party.
