And now the right winces when it is used. I call that poetic justice.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
One could have made that same argument against the Klan years ago. But let's be frank, there have been separate congressional caucuses for nearly 200 years. The only mystery about them is their makeup and what they do. Show where the CBC has conducted themselves along racial separatist or aggressive lines against White people beyond the recent comments by Rep's Carson or Waters and I'm with you on disbanning them 100%. But just so you know, I've never gotten involved with nor cared about the Congressional Black Caucus mostly because I've never viewed them as being that powerful an influence in national politics.Originally Posted by 1Perry

Would that be O.K.? People got all upset because the Boy Scouts refused to allow gay members but it's somehow O.K. to refuse to allow white or hispanic or asian members?
When you boil it down to its essence, if voting for Obama just because he's black is valid, and not racist, then it is a tacit acknowledgment that racial sterotypes are in fact true and correct, and that every other race is also free to vote on racial guidelines, since obviously a white candidate will better represent Whites, a Hispanic candidate will better represent Hispanics, etc. Further, it presupposes that a candidate of one race will favor his/her race over the others. Following this path leads to racial war with the goal of domination or elimination of other races.
