Here is an excellent column about the black caucus and their recent disappointing behavior in regards to Congressman William Jefferson.
The black caucus has resorted to claiming racism as a root cause for Congressman Jefferson's recent run-in with the law and potential indictment for bribery. Racism?
They are absolutely right. What kind of country do we live in when a black man can't commit bribery without coming under the scrutiny of the FBI. We should all be ashamed.
Now, to North Carolina Supreme Court candidate Rachel Lea Hunter, a democrat, who had this to say about Vernon Robinson, a Republican congressional candidate.
"Like a good slave, he has returned to the plantation."
I'm not one to throw out accusations of racism and bigotry loosely, but doesn't this qualify. In fairness to the Dems, they aren't too happy with Ms Hunter, but where is the black caucus? If they rally to anyone's side shouldn't it be Mr. Robinson after someone calls him a slave?
Word of advice to the black caucus, if you quit crying racism about Congressman Jefferson and start defending Mr Robinson it will do wonders for your credibility. At least, from my perspective.
