    I still await the overwhelming evidence of the racism of the Congressional Black Caucus.

    You can do a search as well, and you should be aware not all groups are as open. An oppressed group needs to work together a little more than a priviledged group.
    First of all, learn how to spot disputed and flawed wiki articles before presenting them as evidence of anything; especially if you are going to tell me I “can do a search as well”.



    Allow me to give you a true example of white privilege/white nationalism and racism in this country:




    You see, the reality is that you and liberals like you are the real racists in this country. When “people of color” don’t fit the tidy little mold you have created for them and dare to think like truly free men and women, you attack and slander them and gnash your teeth wondering “how they could be trying to curry favor with the oppressors”.

    This is where the real racism lies; with do-gooder liberals like you who smear unhyphenated American minorities for not thinking or acting the way you know they should think or act.

    Wiki, like any encyclopedia, is fair use for an overview. Learn how to use sources before you whine.

    And you might also look up what racism really is, and some history would be nice for you to catch up on. When a school in Mississippi takes in white students so they can avoid going to school with black children, that is racism. When a business person says we won't hire people of color, as is done in this country, that is racism. Serious racism. To whine about a minorty with a history of oppression working together to improve themselves is plain silly.

    I think they may be unnecessary now too. At the least, they're divisive.

    And...shockingly...

    continuing yesterdays trend...anything to avoid the fact that a black congresswoman and member of the congressional black congress adressed a black audience and called them out because of their blind support for the president...because he is black...which prevents the CBC members for calling him out...not because he is black, but because he is incomeptent.

    Oh yes...keep on talking white people, racism, everything but the reality as presented in the OP.

    Things are better, but not yet perfect. I suggest how neccessary we see it depends largely on where we sit.

    if there were no signs of racism present today, then i would agree
    unfortunately, racism is still rampant in our nation
    it has changed in two ways. there is less of it and it is now more covert than before
    the need for government forces to continue to eradicate vestiges of racism remains

    wrong. it may be discrimination, but it is not, by definition, racism

    When a business person says we won't hire people of color, as is done in this country, that is racism.
    this actually is racism

    hardly rampant. chicken little overstating of the problem only makes matters worse.
