    Racial Politics:

    Next week, the Congressional Black Caucus will hold its 41st annual conference in Washington. It should be its last. The race-baiting group is alarmingly corrupt and out of control.

    Founded in 1971 by 13 civil-rights leaders as "the conscience of the Congress," the caucus has strayed far from its original mission. Now boasting 42 politicians — including some of the most radical and unethical in Congress — it chiefly serves its own interests.

    Its lavish annual gala is an unseemly shakedown of corporate donors unwittingly funding a war chest for Marxist causes. While the living conditions of average African-Americans worsen, this elite black power club has empowered and enriched its own.
    The group has become an embarrassment not just to the black community and the civil-rights legacy it deigns to uphold, but the Democratic Party from which it draws almost all of its members. It should be disbanded. Here's a bill of indictment:

    • Hate speech: The caucus is run by racial arsonists spewing dangerous rhetoric.

    Rep. Allen West was so disgusted by the "hate-filled comments" he threatened to quit the caucus. He admonished fellow members to "follow the example of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., not the example of Rev. Jeremiah Wright." (The group's lone Republican, West says he only joined the caucus out of respect for his late parents.)

    • Racism: Membership is closed to other races. The exclusively black group is the only one on the Hill that enforces a pigment test: No whites or other minorities allowed.

    When a white lawmaker representing a mostly black district was turned down for membership, Rep. William Lacy Clay, son of the caucus co-founder, explained that it's an "unwritten rule" that you must be black to join. It's the sole criterion of membership.

    • Corruption: Four caucus members show up on the left-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington's list of the "most corrupt" lawmakers. Several have been brought up on ethics charges or come under Justice Department investigation, including:

    Waters, who stands accused of improperly lobbying Treasury officials to bail out a black bank, OneUnited, where her husband owned stock and served on the board.

    The black members of Congress have a right to form a black only caucus if they desire. It's called freedom of association.

    Actually it is AGAINST Federal Law for the US Government to have racial requirements for an organization run by the US Government. The Black Caucus is illegal under Federal law as it's only stipulation for membership is that one be black.
