Now that I work in an environment that is 70 percent if not higher black, my eyes have been opened to just how racist blacks can be. I work with some truely outstanding people that are black but there is an overwhelming amount that are truely useless and are using the company for anything they can get. Now I know that to be PC I should temper that statement by saying that there are whites that are lazy dominoe playing asswipes but I haven't met any of those. There are a lot of Asians and Hispanics I work with also and almost all have great work ethics, it is just a large number of blacks at my job that seem to want "somethin for nuttin". They also hog the TVs in all of the break rooms, they are always on basketball, football or BET....heaven forbid anyone might put on something where they could actually learn something. It is my experience that making me less shocked by this article.........

Black Caucus: Whites Not Allowed
By: Josephine Hearn
January 23, 2007 12:32 PM EST

As a white liberal running in a majority African American district, Tennessee Democrat Stephen I. Cohen made a novel pledge on the campaign trail last year: If elected, he would seek to become the first white member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Now that he's a freshman in Congress, Cohen has changed his plans. He said he has dropped his bid after several current and former caucus members made it clear to him that whites need not apply.

"I think they're real happy I'm not going to join," said Cohen, who succeeded Rep. Harold Ford, D-Tenn., in the Memphis district. "It's their caucus and they do things their way. You don't force your way in. You need to be invited."

Cohen said he became convinced that joining the caucus would be "a social faux pas" after seeing news reports that former Rep. William Lacy Clay Sr., D-Mo., a co-founder of the caucus, had circulated a memo telling members it was "critical" that the group remain "exclusively African-American."

Other members, including the new chairwoman, Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, D-Mich., and Clay's son, Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., agreed.

"Mr. Cohen asked for admission, and he got his answer. ... It's time to move on," the younger Clay said. "It's an unwritten rule. It's understood. It's clear."

The bylaws of the caucus do not make race a prerequisite for membership, a House aide said, but no non-black member has ever joined.

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., who is white, tried in 1975 when he was a sophomore representative and the group was only six years old.

"Half my Democratic constituents were African American. I felt we had interests in common as far as helping people in poverty," Stark said. "They had a vote, and I lost. They said the issue was that I was white, and they felt it was important that the group be limited to African Americans."

Cohen remains hopeful, though, that he can forge relationships with black members in other ways.

"When I saw the reticence, I didn't want anyone to misunderstand my motives. Politically, it was the right thing to do," he said. "There are other ways to gain fellowship with people I respect."

Cohen won his seat in the 60 percent black district as the only white candidate in a crowded primary field. If he faces a primary challenge next year from a black candidate, as expected, some Black Caucus members may work to defeat him.

A similar situation arose in 2004 after redistricting added more black voters to the Houston district of former Rep. Chris Bell, D-Texas.

Although House tradition discourages members of the same party from working against each other, about a dozen black lawmakers contributed to Bell's opponent, Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, the eventual victor. Even Bell's Houston neighbor, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, campaigned against him.

One black member who criticized his colleagues for sandbagging Bell was Cohen's predecessor, Harold Ford.

"You have an incumbent, and you don't support an incumbent? It was inappropriate," Ford told Congressional Quarterly in 2004.

Cohen has won high marks for hiring African Americans. A majority of his staff is African American, he said, including his chief of staff.

Well what do you expect when they form a group based on race instead of on beliefs?

We can laugh. But the only way to fight fire is with fire. Whites need to unite and fight AS WHITES. This may be distasteful. It may be un-progressive. It may make you feel guilty.

But it will WORK.

What's the point of this thread? Maybe the white person who tried join forgot it's called the 'BLACK CONGRESSIONAL CONGRESS'?

You're right, it's distasteful and no it will NOT work...it didn't work the first time (or any attempt thereafter) and it certainly won't work now. Anyways, what would united whites fight against????

Maybe you should try to walk in another's moccassins? I'm far from saying they are correct, but one should try to see where they are coming from. They have a point, though not necessarily the way they express it.

Take either. I'm sure it's easier for you to be in the 'downtrodden', but what about those that feel 'downtrodden?'

Once again puddle, try actually reading the article. I bet you are the type that is constantly asking what is going on in the movie even though it is exactly the same movie everyone is watching ....... get off the phone and pay attention.

The point? Even when blacks get in a position of power they are just as discriminating as the biggest racist out there.

No need to be patronizing, the question was based on what YOU said, here I'll refresh your memory:

LOLOL...once again?? Why where else have you thought I didn't read the article? I did read it. I don't understand what your issue is other then the fact you stereotyped a whole race based on your own experience...hey is that racist? :rolleyes:

What a load of crock. White men of power have been and still are the biggest racists out there. Most positions of powers are held by white folks. The few blacks in a power of position are looking out for them and maybe other blacks, not privileged whites.

If it was the "White Congressional Congress" people like you would wage a neverending war against it and label anyone associated with it a "racist."

But since it's blacks, it's okay.

Hypocrite.

How about being villified for no more reason than being white?

Whether you are a member of an ethnic minority, or just a white apologista, it's all the same shit.

First of all, learn how to use the quote feature...it's not that hard, otherwise don't expect a reply for me if I have to dissect your post.

Just like the white folks have done for centuries to other races you mean?

I can't believe you would stoop so low to compare white privilege to that of oppressed minorities...how pathetic.

Horseshit. The biggest racists out there are ethnic minorities because they have get out of jail free cards. This thread is a perfect example. You try to make someone complaining about a racist organization appear to be the racist.

You need to get a clue.

Actually that response is more than a bit of the problem. Though you'll never get it.

There are some reasonable folks on both sides, but the extremes will grab no matter what. You all suc*.
