Congressional Black Caucus: The Last Legal Racists

At one time in America, signs like this were the norm. The Civil Rights movement, Martin Luther King, White guilt, Christian brotherhood, and too many deaths removed these signs of the time.

But today, "signs" meant to separate Whites and Blacks are back if favor. At least, among Black members of Congress. The Congressional Black Caucus, have declared unequivocally Whites are not allowed.

Freshman Rep. Stephen I. Cohen, D-Tenn, who won his seat as the only white candidate in a 60 percent black district. In 1975, Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., White man, requested membership because half his constituency was Black; the six year old Black caucus denied his entrance.

The groups bylaws do not require any racial heritage, however Black Caucus co-founder former Rep. William Lacy Clay Sr., D-Mo., wrote in a memo it was "critical" for the Caucus to remain "exclusively African- American."


The actions of the Congressional Black Caucus are wholely unacceptable. The Caucus itself is unacceptable and should be disbanded immediately. Congressionally approved racist organizations have no place in my America, an America in which Congressmen are not admitted or rejected by the color of their skin, but by the content of their voting districts and the political position they assume. The Congressional Black Caucus is a bigoted travesty and a throw-back to the days of the Ku Klux Klan.

The Congressional Black Caucus has burnt it's cross on the doorstep of the Union too many times to go unnoticed. The Black Caucus must be outlawed as the KKK has been outlawed. It has no place here.
