The Black Caucus calls to mind the owners of Black Baseball back in the twenties. That group of the self-important black-monocracy was well portrayed in “Bingo Long & His Traveling All Stars.”

The Black Caucus is just now "starting to wonder" about why they are only used by their liberal white DEM 'friends' to bring out a vote on election day?

What's "to wonder"?

To a liberal a Negro is for voting, not thinking.

Blacks who want to participate have to go to the GOP.

Leadership positions go to those who can generate dollars for the party. Blacks don't have economic power so they are only good for their votes. Pro abortion groups, unions and gays donate millions to the dems so they are the first consideration when it comes to leadership positions.

Oh, the Democrats run a large plantation, and they NEED the field hands. But they are not yet ready to let any of them come inside and serve the Massa in his own domain.

Probably something to do with "yellow dog" Democrat attitudes. "Yellow dogs" have a "special understanding" with the "Persons of African Persuasion".

Sounds as is there is a slave rebellion brewing on the liberal plantation. The natives are restless tonight.

Let's end the mystery here: YOU ARE BEING PLAYED FOR SUCKERS!! Just like Slick Willie, who, every time one of his little pole polishers was revealed, fled to a black church for a photo op. He didn't appoint any blacks to truly significant positions in his cabinet (like a certain current President I could name), just used them and abused them.

Anyone smell the coffee yet?

We get frequently labeled as the base

Should read:We get frequently labeled as the Sheeple Base?

That's what I've always wondered.
Republicans see them as people and democrats see them as ballot markers and trial lawyer funding.

We get frequently labeled as the base, but the base is rarely heard from when it comes to decisions related to the DCCC."

Oh, I'm sorry. In a socialist society, nobody makes decisions but the government chosen by itself. Now, please, get back in your seat and listen to the propaganda and behave yourself.

Blacks are over one third of the Democrat electorate. They should get leadership roles. It's only fair (for the "fairness" party)

Black conservative ping

If you want on (or off) of my black conservative ping list, please let me know via FREEPmail. (And no, you don't have to be black to be on the list!)

Extra warning: this is a high-volume ping list.

Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.)

Looks like a play for power using the black vote in the Louisiana Senate race. If I was in their position I'd sure play that card.

Lol.... All that talk about the Republican "house negroes", who actually get appointed to some of the most important and powerful positions in the land. All the while the Democrats demonstrate their "celebration of diversity" by keeping black people far away from any real political power.
