    It needs to be pointed out that the title of this thread is a lie.

    Not only did the CBC not make any official statement stating what the OP claims, but the CBC member quoted in the OP isn't even the chairman of the CBC.

    Meanwhile, back at the OP...where the history of US racism was NOT being discussed...

    "We don't put pressure on the president," Waters told the audience at Wayne County Community College. "Let me tell you why. We don't put pressure on the president because ya'll love the president. You love the president. You're very proud to have a black man -- first time in the history of the United States of America. If we go after the president too hard, you're going after us."

    CBC recognizes Obamas failings but cant attack him, because if they attack him on his failed leadership as PRESIDENT, the CBC members will get attacked by black folks because the CBC attacked him...because he is black.

    There aint no white IN this fight...cept the one y'all keep dragging in.

    Why do i have to put my race on just about everything i sign with a government form?

    Again i don't think there should be any laws against a Black caucus or a white caucus group but i think they are distasteful and indirectly racist.

    please quote the official CBC statement saying this.

    no? then please quote the official or even unofficial statement from the chairman of the CBC, Emmanuel Cleaver, stating this.

    no, then your claim is a lie.

    It is often optional, but it is more for statisitcs than anything else.

    And no, it is not racism. You're making a huge leap in logic.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    but maxine still said stupid crap
    she appears to believe that blacks vote in a monolithic manner
    waters declines doing her duty as a representative for fear that it will adversely impact her chances for re-election
    and she attributes the higher percentage of unemployment among blacks to be due to something other than that segment of society's weak skill set (on average)
    examine the unemployment rate of another minority, asians, with a higher average skill set, and we will find that better educated minority group is not beset by magnified unemployment
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    100 white kids bussed into black schools. 100 black kids bussed into white schools. 200 students placed in some pretty bad 'educational' experiences because of a bunch of adult politicians decided to use them as pawns to save the world. It wasnt effective.

    I lived one street west of Sweetwater in a run down trailer park...one of the poorest housing neighborhoods in Jacksonville. Many of the houses occupied there had not even been finished by the developers. Those were my neighbors and classmates. We played on the city sports teams together. We didnt NEED to be 'de-segregated'. We were de-segregated by socio-economic status. Students that got bussed into those majority schools...you dont think that reenforced certain resentments in some folks? We were kids for gods sake.

    you appear not to have read the article within the OP to make such a bold - and quite erroneous - statement
    here is an excerpt which evidences why my comment was very much relevant to this thread
    ... The problem, Waters said, is that Obama is not paying enough attention to the problems of some black Americans. The unemployment rate for African-Americans nationally is a little over 16 percent, and almost twice that in Detroit. And yet, Waters said, the president is on a jobs-promotion trip through the Midwest that does not include any stops in black communities. ...
    apology accepted in advance
