    I am asking a question, I am not giving an opinion, if a group of Whites held a meeting like this and used the word "White" to describe themselves I believe the Left Wing Media would go insane with accusations of Racism.

    How would the media treat this one, the words below were spoken at this meeting, this isn't a "White Republican Meeting" this is a "Black Caucus Meeting"
    The First Lady, Michelle was in attendance, she also spoke.

    Little Speech Given At The Black Caucus Gathering (not by michelle)
    When God says a man should not lie with another man as a woman, that’s what he meant,” she said. “When He says that two women should not lie together as a man would a woman, that’s what he meant. He meant what he said, and we have to give an account for it. . . . When we know what God says and then go against it, there are consequences.”

    It's not a racist meeting as long as there are people who state stereotypes about blacks that blacks have to deal with. For instance, imagine if there was a poster in this forum who regularly posted stories about black crimes and dishonest black politicians, but almost never about others. Eventually, that would reinforce the idea that there are people out there who generalize about blacks, so blacks would have no choice but to get together as a group to address the reality they they are treated as a minority, not as equals.

    yup.........the black caucus is a racist organization: "The Congressional Black Caucus is an organization representing the black members of the United States Congress. Membership is exclusive to African-Americans"

    it is just as racist as not allowing blacks to use a bathroom

    No. That's not what "racist" means. And when you're defending the use of a word, you can't use that use of the word as an example.

    Just so you know.

    nope.......the term racist is consistent.....it does not vary depending what race it pertains to

    I'm not offended at all....I don't have a problem with it all.......but it is tantamount to calling a spade a spade

    wait......did I just say that?

    Its the leftist that have redefined the term racist.
    Just like they redifined and hijacked the term liberal.
    Huge diff in the country being run by liberals and leftist. We are being run by leftist not liberals.

    Oops! You made a boo-boo, huh?

    You're right that the term "racist" can apply to any different race, but you still don't know what it means.

    Try again.

    sounds racist to me.......maybe you don't fully understand the defeinition.....or are simply an apologist........either way, 'just so know'

    " "Does the caucus allow only black members?" Pete Stark, D-CA., who is white, tried and failed to join in 1975. In January 2007, Josephine Hearn reported in Politico that white members of Congress were not welcome to join the CBC.[8] Freshman Representative Steve Cohen, D-TN., who is white, pledged to apply for membership during his election campaign to represent his constituency, which is 60% African American. Hearn further reported that although the bylaws of the caucus do not make race a prerequisite for membership, former and current members of the caucus agreed that the group should remain "exclusively black". Rep. William Lacy Clay, Jr., D-MO., the son of Rep. William Lacy Clay Sr., D-MO., a co-founder of the caucus, is quoted as saying, "Mr. Cohen asked for admission, and he got his answer. He's white and the caucus is black. It's time to move on. We have racial policies to pursue and we are pursuing them, as Mr. Cohen has learned. It's an unwritten rule. It's understood." In response to the decision, Rep. Cohen stated, "It's their caucus and they do things their way. You don't force your way in."

    Racism only applies to minorities.. not to the majority.

    Tap dance all you want, but I have no sympathy for the "white guy victims" who play semantical games here...

    Perhaps "reverse racism" is a more appropo term..

    Can a majority congressman or woman join the congressional black caucus???
