    As I watched with interest, numerous members of the Congressional Black Caucus, come to the microphone on Friday, raise their hands and utter the words, "Don't shoot!" I couldn't help but ask, do we have a Gongressional white Caucus, and the answer are "No!"

    So why don't we have a Congressional White Caucus? Isn't about time we white folks have a caucus to refute what the CBC does? And while I'm at it, should there not also be a Congressional Asian Caucus? A Congressional Hispanic Caucus? And a Congressional Caucus for Minorities in Congress?

    While I am speaking about why we, and other races don't have their own voices heard in Congress, I have to ask when the white folk and Asians and Hispanics are going to have their very own Asian Entertainment Awards? or a White Entertainment Television?

    I think Native American Music Awards is long past due, after all, this was their land way before the first white man, and black slave landed here, hundreds of years ago! And to be truthful, Native American Music is filled with centuries of traditional; it has a good beat, and it is easy to dance to! Plus it would be a colorful event with every tribe attending in traditional native clothing, deck out in feathers.

    I have to wonder why the white women have not yet started their very own network on cable television that is designed specifically for white women, or Asian women, of Hispanic women, or for Pakastani women?

    Are these black only networks in some way disparaging or racially segregating television when it comes to having a channel or award designed specifically for the black woman? I know these other races can start their own networks designed for specific causes and genders, but if they did, would they or could they be seen as racial to the core?

    I was just wondering out loud, and I know that there has to be an audience out there for these unmentioned and under-utilized races and genders, but would they be welcomed by the leader of the black music awards, black women's channels, and black caucus without being called retaliatory racism?

    For the same reason we don't have a NAAWP.

    Racism is only tolerated if it comes from a minority. You know this. :BangHead:

    Yes I realize that you are right :BangHead: but let me dream! By the way, in the city I lived in for 20 years, whites were the minority. over 65% of the popultion (about 80,000) were anything but white! Maybe the city should have a Council White Causcus? :laugh:

    The white caucuses are named:

    The Senate Republican Caucus
    The Senate Democratic Caucus
    The House Republican Caucus
    The House Democratic Caucus

    The majority does not need to state their race. Would be silly.

    Did I miss the sudden change in our country where white people have become this underrepresented minority struggling to get heard?

    Take a look at our congress RD2 and you will see that white people are doing just fine in the US of A.

    He and a handful of his other buddies should be included in the Race Baiting Hall of Fame 2014 class with Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Bill O'reilly.

    He's hunting for affirmation.

    And the "white caucuses" are all inclusive, right? Any race at all can be a member.

    Hmmmm.....

    Best.Posts.Ever!!!!

    I laughed so hard I got choked!


    .............................................................

    By the way RD2 ... instead of asking where is the white caucus and where is the Asian caucus and the Native American caucus, you should be asking why are there any caucuses at all when all they do is cause more division.

    and to top that off, members of the caucuses will "TDY" some of their staff members to the Caucuses.

    Sounds like good use of our tax money.
