Thoughts on Obama #2

From Barack Obama's remarks at the Democratic convention - July 2004

    "There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America."

If he truly believes this why is he a member of the Congressional Black Caucus - given that he stated that we are all Americans and color should not matter? (something to which I whole heartily agree)

Think about it. The CBC does not allow non-black members of Congress to join - even if they represent a significant black population. To me this is a racist organization.

I'd be willing to bet money if a Congressional Caucasian Caucus existed there would be some major meltdowns occurring.
