    well, that's a rather shallow reason for you to not agree with CBC's racial segregation <shrugs>..... but i'm used to people like you harping on racism/segregation/discrimination there, excusing it over there... same ol' **** i've seen since the 60's.

    the only segregation I see as "just" is the self segregation that humans tend to engage in... which usually manifests itself in their forming of high trust sub-societies.
    when they start becoming exclusionary, I start having a problem, though.

    The CBC has no skin color requirement

    Black Caucus: Whites Not Allowed - Josephine Hearn - POLITICO.com

    the caucus is for African Americans only... whites are not allowed.

    i'm certain you are basing your argument off of their official bylaws.... but you are most certainly ignoring reality when you make these arguments.. a reality that the members of the caucus call bull**** on as well.

    Thanks for proving that I was right

    The bylaws of the caucus do not make race a prerequisite for membership, a House aide said, but no non-black member has ever joined.

    if you feel you are right and myself and the members of the black caucus are wrong... well, i'm ok with that.... it's an odd reality to live in, but it's your own.

    Obviously it's whites being racist, right? It must be, is that it?
