Skip to comments.Democrats Call for Lawmaker Diversity Training
Posted on 09/02/2012 6:12:36 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Tennessee Democrats believe it's time for lawmakers to re-take diversity and sensitivity training.
The push comes after recent comments made by two Republican lawmakers. The first - Senator Jim Summerville sent an email using crude language saying he didn't care what the black caucus thought about an issue.
The email read, "I don't give a rat's (expletive) what the Black Caucus thinks."
It was sent to state Representative Barbara Cooper, D-Memphis, and was then forwarded to members of the Black Caucus. It was referring to a report from black lawmakers on the recent grading controversy at Tennessee State University.
"It was unprofessional, completely unnecessary, and it shows disregard for the Tennessee Black Caucus and the work we do," said state Representative Brenda Gilmore, D-Nashville.

I guess the Representatives only need to be careful NOT to offend the people who got them elected. As for the rest, they need to get used to be insulted. It’s time for the rest of America to grow up and stop acting like sissies being bullied.
They need to start in there own houses, they are the biggest cabal of racist, anti-Christian, anti-ethics, anti-humans, pro-wicked in U.S. history.
That's pretty much the sentiments of most normal, working, taxpayers.
I think Senator Jim Summerville just guaranteed his re-election for life, if he wants.
But having a group like a “Black Caucus” is not racist?
Well, Summerville was quite correct that regardless, the black caucus will vote Dumocrap. So he didn’t give a rip what they think. Plus, the black caucus didn’t give a damn about Republicans either. So why is there even a need for this sensitivity training crap?
So “those people” want some other guy sent out for reeducation because he wasn’t interested in the opinions of a racially-segregated group.
Said “Black Caucus” sounds like, on the issue in question, it is off in never never land. This doesn’t mean he differs with them on all issues, and their actual black constituents are mostly smarter than that. But of course any time the Sharptons of the world can trump up a seeming racial issue, they will do so.
How about turning the tables and propose making the Rats get “sensitivity training” on areas of conservative concern?
That was culturally sensitive.
He could have written:
"I don't give a coon's (explective)...."
They don’t live in his district, why should he care what they think?
Someone ought to tell Jessey Jackkkson he might need a pair of tweezers with that knife he was threatening little zero with.
There’s an epic episode of Rescue Me’ where the entire fire dept goes to sensitivity training because one of the firemen called the affirmative action hire (a woman) a “twat”.
In the entire sensitivity training film (they were forced to watch as per union orders), the training manager asks everyone what they learned from the film..
Dennis Leary then says “Yes I do, why the F*** is that in every scene, the white man is always at fault?”
How ‘bout those bozos take their “sensitivity and diversity” and stick it where the sun don’t shine. (The same place they store their “everybody gets one” trophies.) That 60s crap has gotten old. Americans are tired of that bull****. Our country, our economy and our children and grandchildren are on the road to destruction because of that crap.
What, there is no White Caucus?
Nothin but a bunch of racist black separatists anyway.
Got news for ya, Brenda.....NO one gives a rat’s ass what the “black caucus” thinks....at the State or Federal level. Get over it, b***h.
what's the problem?
Right-Think will be enforced!
How about ‘Lawmaker 101’ training? Or maybe ‘How to work for a Living Rather than Collecting Your ‘Entitlement’ After You Get Elected’?
Guess we need to look closer at our Congress Critters when they run for office as many seem to think they are entitled to our money. This I don’t need to work to get rich attitude seems to be alive and well in Congress ... especially with Democrats and the US Senate.
It’s getting to the point where obe cannot have an honest conversation with someone without the race card being pulled.
and I add a Hearty amount of BWAHAHAHAHA!
Dear Mr. Summerville.
I’ll take “who is Robert Byrd” for 100.
Why should he care what a Black separatist group thinks? Should he also care what White separatist groups think?
It sounds to me like a hate group is after him for not being racist.
“re-take”? If any state Republican representative voluntarily undergoes indoctrination, I think it proves that they are deficient for the job. I already assume the Democrats are deficient, so they can listen to p.c. bulldada all day long. But I expect Republicans to be:
2) Not crazy
3) Smart enough not to blurt out stupid things in public
4) Too busy in their job to waste time being indoctrinated.
Since the issue under discussion is about the Black Caucus and IQ, perhaps a literature search of comparative IQ scores of whites and blacks may be of interest.
Hard data is preferable to hard ball politics, isn’t it?
I’m sure that until the Republicans took over in TN the Democrats, and their “Black Caucus”, used to treat the Republicans the same way.
Can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Freaking whiners.
I'm so tired of the Whining from the left and its only going to get worse....
Hopefully after this dirty election the masses will be tone deaf to the whining leftie's.
Now I did it!...Is "Tone Deaf" one of the banned words?
I Hope they Put BHO Biden Emmanuel Axelrod MaxinWaters Through the Course First..Oh Yeah Eric Holder Janet Napolitano and her Love slaves.
I certainly hope so. Exactly what kind of work is it you do?
“”I don’t give a rat’s (expletive) what the Black Caucus thinks.”
He needs to send an apology immediately: I apologize for the inference that the black caucus thinks.
[[ The email read, “I don’t give a rat’s (expletive) what the Black Caucus thinks.” ]]
Good for him.
Don’t back down.
Don’t let them intimidate you.
Mr. Summerville, put on a pair of “Akin shoes” and keep walkin’ the walk !
Lawmaker’s diversity training, sounds like another wonderful program like affirmative action. Lawmakers diversity gives you a get out of jail free card if you are the right color no matter what the crime.
Of course it is, but it's the "good and essential" form of racism. On the other hand, your comment pointing out the dichotomy is of the "bad and unacceptable" form of racism.
Now I get it. Anything blatantly racist done by Democrats is not racism while a conservative even uttering the words; Chicago, food stamps, golf or opposing the tyranny of Barack Obama is racist.
