The St. Louis Tea Party had an all-hands-on-deck response to the NAACP’s plan to denounce the nationwide network of activists at its annual convention across the state in Kansas City. The NAACP as early as Tuesday could take up language to “repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties” and stand against the movement’s attempt to “push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”
In a matter of hours, the St. Louis group drafted and fired off to the NAACP a resolution demanding the organization withdraw its “bigoted, false and inflammatory” statement. The missive accused the NAACP of resorting to political tactics and urged the IRS to reconsider whether it can continue to qualify for tax-exempt status. (source)

Keep in mind that the same NAACP that is claiming Tea Partiers are racist is the same NAACP that refuses to stand up for Kenneth Gladney, and is in fact backing the men who attacked him.
I can not speak for my local tea party, but I stand in solidarity with the St Louis Tea Party on this matter.
