Congressional Black Caucus?Submitted by We the People on Thu, 11/19/2009 - 19:09
Today during discussion on the voting, the Congressional Black Caucus was brought up. Not being familiar with this, I figured it was just a nickname for some congressional group. However, after I did a Google, I found out that it's literally called "Black" because it's members have dark skin!
This is outrageous, it's one of the most racist things you could have for determining membership, and this is right in one of the highest branches of our government, Congress! A congressional caucus that is based upon skin color?
Am I the only one that was not aware of this absurdity?
