    Is the Congressional Black Caucus relevant any more?

    Don't hear to much about those folks these days. Man it's a shame the condition black folks are in. Pitiful.

    Well I would like to think that is true, but it just doesn't appear to me to be the case. They are so irrelevant that they could not even prevent Bill Clinton, a Democrat, from throwing their constituents under the bus. If you show how they are, I would like to see that.

    Relevant? Not in their current form. Perhaps if they tried to hold people accountable for their own actions instead of portraying a segment of society as the victims who need special laws and treatment to make them equal, then they maybe they would be relevant.

    Relevant? No. Racist? Yes

    So they should publicly whip people who don't have a job?

    It is a Caucus that has no place in a civilized society that helps keep racism alive. No Caucus should be made for ones skin color. They are only going to get more and more irrelevant because "black" people will eventually become harder and harder to determine because we'll all be mixed and knew genetic groups will arise.

    Yes. They are irrelevant. Ironically, universal Democrat Party support among African Americans means they can be safely screwed over in favor of Hispanics (which are much more in play, competition-wise).

    They don't want to let in conservative blacks in Congress - they have become nothing more than "democrats who put a racian sheen on the exact same material". That's not valuable to the DNC anymore (for picking up black votes, anyway).


    Remember when they tried to use them as props during the Obamcare votes, and it totally backfired? That's where they are today.
