Apostle Claver, Leader and founder of Raging Elephanats,  a movement to increase racial diversity within the Republican Party, addressed the  South Carolina Tea Party Convention.

Claver told a crowd of tea party supporters that they weren't racist and that the Democrat Party are the real racists. 

"We need to have the courage to go into their neighborhoods and tell them the truth about the partyof Jim Crow, the party of the KKK, the party of Dredd Scott, the party of segregation. The Democrats are the ones who are the racists, not you," said Claver.

He explained that Republicans would need to attract black and Latino voters if they intended to win elections in the future and called out several prominent African-Americans politicians.

  "Look around," Claver told Claver asked the southern white audience. "Ya'll hear me? Turn around and take a look. Where's our black brothers and sisters? Where's our Hispanic and Latino brothers and sisters? Our Asian brothers and sisters?" 

The Deomcat party has damaged the black community, decimated their family; miseducated children, devoured, destroyed their economic base, throught their liberal policies,  said Claver.  

"Now here's the good news," he continued. "Them folks, them blacks and Hispanics, they're just as conservative as you are... But the point is, we're their friends, not the Democrats

He called out prominent Democrats by name as racists. 

“They want to say your are the racist," he said. "No. No. If anybody is a racist, it’s [Texas Congresswoman] Shiela Jackson Lee! If anybody is a racist, it’s [Democratic Congressman] John Conyers! If anybody is a racist, it’s [South Carolina Congressman] James Clyburn! If anybody is a racist, it’s Jesse ‘castration’ Jackson! If anybody is a racist, it’s Al ‘shakedown’ Sharpton! They’re the racists! We’re their friends!”
