That racism was apparently less obvious to James Earl Jones, as he needed the help of MSNBC and right-wing talk shows to clarify it for him. Jones is trending today as his remarks, made Sunday on the Smiley & West Show, once again connect the Tea Party and racism.
I listened to the clip, and while James Earl Jones did not directly call the Tea Party racist, he defined liberal racism perfectly.

Is there room under the bus for one more grandmother? Jones says he learned racism from his part-Native American, part-black grandmother, who “hated everybody.”
But if Jones’s grandmother taught his family to judge based on race, how does that implicate the Tea Party, exactly? “I think I know what racism is better than anybody who’s ever been a racist,” Jones explained.
Just proves Jones is racist, not the tea party. James Earl Jones: Tea Party Is 'Racist' – James Earl Jones – Fox Nation http://t.co/BCeugCrR

So, is anyone else getting tired of hearing this script?

Here’s a good question:
Why does anyone, in particular anyone in the Tea Party, care what James Earl Jones thinks?

Perhaps a better question would be, does Jones or anyone else in Hollywood care what the Tea Party actually thinks?
James Earl Jones, the #teaparty doesn't give a hoot about race. It just wants the Feds to stop growing the debt. 1 issue: STOP SPENDING!
