    When Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., told a friendly crowd that some of his fellow members of Congress associated with the Tea Party wanted him lynched, he didn't actually mean it, he told the Washington Examiner today.......Carson's remarks at a Congressional Black Caucus job fair had clearly attributed murderous desires to unnamed conservative colleagues, with the explicit racial emphasis as he invoked Jim Crow laws:

    "This is the effort that we're seeing of Jim Crow. Some of these folks in congress right now would love to see us as second class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me hanging on a tree."

    Carson said that he was only figuratively accusing his colleagues of Jim Crow racism and homicidal ideation.
