    I don't suppose so.

    After all the poor downtrodden blacks have been so beaten, so downtrodden... the only area they can ever get ahead is in sports and Congress.
    I mean why according to racial equality activist Richard Lapchick, the NBA in 2011 was composed of 83 percent non-white players, including 78 percent black, four percent Latino, and one percent Asian; 17 percent of the players were white. The league had the highest percentage of black players of any major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada.

    As of 2009 opening day rosters approximately 65% of NFL players are African-American, which includes players of "mixed-race" background as well as Samoan and Polynesian decent.

    Oh by the way.. NBA's 'average' salary -- $5.15M -- a trendy, touchy subject
    Which means that 78% of Black NBA players are millionaires...
    Average NFL player salary: $1.9 million
    Yet there it is the The Congressional Black Caucus | The official website of the Congressional Black Caucus.

    Again... I'm not passing any judgement! I just wondered if there was and I did a search and couldn't find any in existence.
    Plenty of curious people like myself that wondered if there was... but no Congressional White Caucus!

    I just wondered why no White Congress member ever considered forming a Congressional White Caucus...
    Just wondering.. FEAR maybe???

    It was short-lived.

    I believe they were called the Dixiecrats or Segregationists.

    Wouldn't a fairer comparison of salaries between the NFL and the NBA be one of say just looking at starters? I mean an NBA team has what , maybe 20 guys whereas an NFL team has around 100.

    However, I can't think of anyone in the NBA who comes even close to making what nearly every starting QB in the NFL makes. Oh starting with a white boy named Peyton Manning, I believe he's making $20M for this year alone.

    I believe that caucus is called "the Republican party."

    I bet you were never aware there is a Congressional BLACK caucus were you?

    It's one of nearly 300 such caucuses on the Hill, groups that champion special interests as varied as bicycling, shellfish, prayer and France (yes, France).

    Sudan Caucus (2006(?)–)
    Out of Iraq Caucus (2006-)
    Minor League Baseball Caucus
    Caucuses of the United States Congress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But not one Congressional White Caucus!

    I never understand these threads.

    Do you guys think that white men are underrepresented in Congress?
