    Perhaps. As I had to fight both sides, I had no aligence.

    They did some of that. Busing did go both ways.

    I'm shocked that they said they won't go after Obama because he loved by blacks in America. The CBC is a racist organization. We should not have double standards for minority groups.

    maybe they do that crap up north or in big cities like Atlanta, but we've never had that problem in my area. the only segregation that takes place around here is voluntary.

    hell, the realtor I went to when I was first looking for my apartment was investigated for telling all black applicants that my neighborhood had no vacancies, while whites and asians were told the opposite.
    so what did he tell you?

    The Congressional Black Caucus believes that some races are inferior to others? This is news to me. Got any evidence for your claim?

    how about during the 80s? during the 90s?

    all segregation was voluntary and not the work of racist real-estate agents looking to keep blacks here and whites there?

    Would a Congressional White Caucus be racist if they said the same thing about a white president?

    you didn't answer my question: does the Congressional Black Caucus believe that one race is inferior to another?

    what evidence do you have that the CBC is racist?

    I'm sorry, where is the supposed racism from the CBC?

    where is the supposed racism just from Maxine Waters? does she head the CBC? was she making an official policy statement for the CBC?

    she said nothing racist.
