Skip to comments.CBC’s Cleaver Admits: If Obama Wasn’t President, Black Caucus ‘Would Be Marching on the White House’

Whats the most obvious difference between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama?
Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus probably would be marching on the White House if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).
If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House, Cleaver told The Miami Herald in comments published Sunday. There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.
Rather than march on the man most responsible for the extreme unemployment among Black Americans, the CBC made the strategic decision to target someone else.
Rather than targeting Obamas leadership, many CBC members aimed their fire at the Tea Party movement over the summers congressional recess. Waters said in a public meeting in her district that the Tea Party can go straight to hell. Another member, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), called the Tea Party the real enemy seeking to hold Congress hostage.
How are both of the CBCs decisions here to decide not to protest Obama, and then to target the Tea Party for a hate campaign not explicitly racist? Its pretty obvious that Cleaver et al arent working for a world in which politicians are judged by their character or their actions, but by the color of their skin.
Blacks owe the US reparations.
It is interesting to me that he would so easily admit to being a racist...
How’s it feel to be a slave, boy?
Now git back out in that field and pick the master’s cotton before the master sets the overseer on you.
This is a weird concept. The CBC is ALREADY in DC.

Wasn’t Clinton the “first black president?”
hate.. it’s all some dems know.. they hate themselves more than they do the enemies of their Naked Emperor.. yet embrace him like Stockholm Syndrome victims.
What’s really funny is that these black racists are too dumb to even realize that they are still slaves of the democrat party, and they always have been.
Der der der...
Cleaver and his kind are little more than overseers on the plantation and contrary to popular belief, many if not most overseers were black.
Bingo ... we have a winner.
good point, and as Herman Cain said:
“I left that plantation a loooooong time ago — and I ain’t never goin’ back!!”
Hey, I thought the same thing. You don’t suppose the CBC is racist do you? They should keep their opinions of the Stainmaker to themselves. Barky is doing everything he can for them and in their best interests. They should just blindly trust him.
To the Black Leftist Caucus ( Who have no Republicans of voice.)
No more hand outs based on race. Keep our nation free, secure our Republic and get a job.Or get the hell out and go back to the dark continent.
Good Read on What the Story is:
Isn’t the title of this thread ,,, the quote from E. Cleaver a racist remark ,,, if a white guy were president the cbc would be marching on the White House . 0bama gets a pass because he’s half black .
After the upcoming tide of Dems deserting Obama (and his policies) in droves soon, this is the only course left for O and his people.
It has been becoming more and more clear that wide spread civil unrest (not just in the big metro area) is the only way the Libs/Communists can hope to retain their power.
He doesn’t have any solutions to the problems we are facing, and he doesn’t even pretend to provide solutions any more. All his speeches and actions speak louder than anything else that he hopes to divide Americans into “us and them”.
Be prepared. And smart people (scratch that, we all) should figure out a way to prevent a 21st century ‘Reichstag fire’ from ever happening here.
maybe they can protest the white half of Obama?
In other words, the Black Caucus is prejudiced. They would only picket a non-black person. Bigots!
His soul is black.
Does that count?
