Whites Need Not Apply

Can you imagine the outrage were this article the other way around and blacks were excluded purely due to the color of their skin? Still a long way to go.

Well it is called the National BLACK Caucus! The WHITE supremisist would let a non white join that either. Extreme groups are extreme groups black or white.

When elected, I'm going to start the Coon-ass Caucus. Non coon-asses need not apply.

LMC...definitely none at all.

FI...but that's the problem, they aren't considered an extreme group. They are considered mainstream and the voice for blacks on Congress. If as their website states their goal is to: "to close (and, ultimately, to eliminate) disparities that exist between African-Americans and white Americans in every aspect of life." Why can't a white person who represents a majority of blacks in his or her district or has the same concerns be allowed to be a part of the caucus purely because he or she is white? That would absolutely not stand were it the other way around.

Nick...would be glad to join that caucus when I join you in Congress =)

That's just like "Black History Month".

If we had a "White History Month" that would be racist.
