Black Caucuses Continue Betraying Black Folks

by Dr. Ada Fisher - August 11th, 2007 - North Carolina Conservative

Given the bills being considered by the US Congress to deal with illegal immigration which negatively impacts African-Americans as well as legal immigrants of color, the silence from the Black Congressional Caucus and state Legislative Black Caucuses is deafening though many print materials in illegal immigrant friendly languages. The plight of the Haitians being denied legal entry or any consideration for amnesty as we watch those who make it to our shores be turned away should be a front burner issue for the CBC if they truly are there to act in the best interest of black people. This is as important as apartheid was in South Africa. Why aren’t they joining hands in front of the US Capitol in protest against illegal immigration and the denial of fair entry for those who are darker in color?

Dr. Ada Fisher continues to rail against the incredible situation we find among liberal Democrats. Though African-Americans vote nearly 90% for democrats, black leadership continuously advocates socialist and progressive causes that damage the African-American community more than all others. Why are there so few in the black community who will stand up and denounce this pattern? How long will it be before conservative blacks recognize that their interests are better served by aligning with Republicans, their life long supporters, than to continue to be bamboozled by black leadership that only accepts socialist answers?

I must agree with you 100% on the statement, it is a fact that is true. The Black Caucus has more power now than ever, and you are right, they are mum when it comes to black immigrants that are illegal. There are many black illegals, and if the "clamp" down happens it will include the many Caribbean Americans here illegally. Many of them have the same plight as the Mexicans in that they have children that are citizens, and many have applied for citizenship, yet have not received it.

Before the next election comes, I hope you keep this one alive, and keep it in the face of the Black Caucus, Hillary Clinton and anyone else who claims to have our best interest at heart.
