In St. Louis, the NAACP held a press conference to condemn 'racism within the Tea Party' in which they were confronted by a citizen journalist about their applied double-standard on the issue. The interviewer questions them about racism within their ranks, particularly the aftermath of the beating of Kenneth Gladney, an African-American Tea Party participant in attendance at a Russ Carnahan town hall meeting who was attacked by two members of the SEIU. After the incident, the Missouri NAACP held a press conference in which they urged prosecutors to drop the assault charges against Gladney and referred to him as an 'uncle tom'. Towards the end of the video the NAACP members asked the few in attendance to shut off their cameras so they could "talk honestly." The interviewer then questions one of the men asking if he were aware of the NAACP conference following the beating, in which he says he wasn't. Problem is, he's actually in the video in which the NAACP spoke on the Gladney incident.
