Congressional Black Caucus Admits to being Racist (sort of)

Forget for a moment that more than 70% of all Congressional Black Caucus members are also registered with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) caucus, which means lying is permitted. When CBC chairman Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) - the same guy who lied about being spat on by a Tea Party member - said that if Bill Clinton was the president presiding over such high unemployment among the black community, blacks would be marching on the White House. We are left only to conclude that Cleaver is being racist.

Via Miami Herald:
WASHINGTON — As the debate over jobs turns into the latest political tug-of-war, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri walks a careful but candid line.
As chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, he has been at odds with President Barack Obama over his administration's response to the soaring unemployment rate in the African-American community.

Nearing 17 percent, joblessness among blacks is at a three-decade high and almost twice the size of the overall unemployment rate. The black caucus wants the president to do more.

But the group's efforts are freighted with political sensitivities, given Obama's unique role as the first African-American occupant of the White House and the sometimes untethered animosity that his election has triggered.

"If (former President) Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver said. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."
Hey, uh, Emanuel, far be it from me to defend Bill Clinton (I can't stand the thought of it) but the fact is that a 17 percent unemployment rate among blacks DIDN'T exist during the Clinton years and it does now.

The fact is that the black community is suffering more than it has in decades while a president who happens to be black is presiding over that misery. Yet, Emanuel Cleaver and the near 3/4 majority of his caucus who are also registered with a socialist caucus would rather default to inaction because of..... dare I say it?..... RACISM.
