Race-y Pictures

With the ongoing budget skirmishes bringing the Tea Party into the limelight again, I was interested in this photo from a rally last Thursday in San Francisco. I’m wondering if this guy was that bad at laying out the sign, or if he didn’t actually telegraph one of the primary underlying fears/motivators behind the movement, and who exactly he thought were the main beneficiaries of the bureauc-racy.
