    Wow. Your poll shows 85% (118 of 135 votes) say they are still relevant. Any one of those 85% care to explain how they are still relevant?

    The black caucus could make or break a certain House Majority Whip's career.

    :raises eyebrow: Ah. You mean because they are all Republican, and therefore the House Leader has to listen to them about who he does or does not support for that position?


    The CBC aren't going to effect Scalise.

    It's the federal government, not small town Texas and I don't think even moderate white republicans want to be represented by a "David Duke without the baggage" in congress. Little did he know that would become his baggage. lol


    As restitution for his racist past, the black caucus want Scalise to introduce a bill to fix the Voting Rights Act. That would be fun to see.

    Any more? Was it ever?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I don't know. Probably more so that most other congressional caucuses, which I think number into the hundreds. http://cha.house.gov/sites/republica...d%205-6-14.pdf

    First, where they ever relevant ? Everytime I hear about the CBC I think back to when they were proactively covering up for Fannie and Freddies corruption.

    Also, elections have consequences.
