The Congressional Black Caucus consists of only African-Americans. If you are a member of Congress black skin is the only requirement to join.

Currently there are 43 members of the CBC, 42 of whom are Democrats. The one Republican is Florida's Allen West. Other than Rep. West, the entire membership of the CBC along with the Congressional Progressive Caucus (the Marxist side of the Democrats) and the House Leadership, walked out on the House vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for failing to turn over documents to the House Oversight Committee investigating the Fast and Furious scandal. Allen West should have locked the doors after they walked out.

Plan and simple, 101 Democrats walked out of the vote to demonstrate their belief that Holder's contempt charges were racially charged. Here goes that race card again.

Just to be straight here, the early civil rights leaders, especially Martin Luther King, Jr. never played the race card. His assassination gave credence to those who co-opted the movement, Jesse Jackson and his ilk, to use the race card. And since the early 70s when Jackson by default took over the civil rights movement, African-American leaders have improved the playing of the race card like a Los Vegas poker dealer.

Using the guise of being a "victim," black leaders continue to portray their plight as being set against the privileged, big business owners, Wall Street, fat-cat bankers and the "white-devil slave masters" (a phrase they would use if they could get away with it).

One would think that the rhetoric would have subsided since the election of the nation's first African-American President. Rather, it has been ratcheted up ten-fold.

Since Barack Obama became President we have seen Holder lecture Americans for being cowards on race; Obama appealing in explicitly racial terms to blacks and Latinos, telling them Democrats were their friends and Republicans were their enemies and has suggested that racism (racial profiling) was behind Arizona's and other states' immigration laws.

The President went before the United Nations Human Rights Council and in a formal report told the world that America was engaging in discrimination against minorities and the LGBT community. It even submitted Arizona's immigration law to this anti-American body for review.

Yes, our "Uniter-in-Chief" brings all Americans together alright. It's all about race, yet nothing is mentioned about the Black-on-white crimes or blacks keeping whites out of their caucuses either.

Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas, a former Democratic candidate for Virginia's 4th Congressional district once noted that she can't find on the law books a mandate against discriminating against the majority, meaning whites. Using that argument, Lucas, the owner of several rentals, refuses to lease or rent to whites. She's not the only African-American doing this. Even Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) have yet to rent to whites.

All of this wreaks of reverse discrimination, or KKKism in reverse. And the Congressional Black Caucus has moved to the vanguard of this movement serving as some sort of collective Grand Wizard with the likes of Rep. Maxine Waters, Frederica Wilson, Sheila Jackson Lee, Emanuel Cleaver, Hank Johnson and Bobby Rush as the "Inner Council of Race Baiters."

The CBC, along with their sympathizers, Nancy Pelosi and her Progressive friends, have painted the picture that Eric Holder is an object of racism for the enforcement of his interpretation of voter registration laws as a Republican move to take us back to Jim Crow. In other words, you either side with Eric Holder or you're a racist.

Where have we heard that before? Ah yes. The media and Hollywood elites telling us that we either approve of and like everything Obama is doing, or we're racists.

Setting record straight, Eric Holder broke the laws. When George Bush's Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, a Hispanic, was put through the gauntlet we didn't hear one peep from the left about that being a racist act. We didn't hear a single member of the CBC jump up and threaten boycotts when Democrats spoke ill of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. In fact, when Rep. Allen West speaks out against Obamacare, or the lack of transparency in Obama's White House, or the entitlement mentality and everything else dear to Democrats, he is branded by fellow CBC members as an Oreo Cookie, a traitor, or as brainwashed by the white man.

The CBC double standard is sickening. They put the KKK to shame. And Eric Holder is still in contempt.

The only hope to tone down the reverse racial rhetoric is for Americans to hold Obama in contempt of the Constitution and vote him out of office. We'll still be seen as a racist country, but, as David Limbaugh pointed out recently, "conservatives will presumably be able to criticize liberal policies again without automatically being accused of racism."

We believe that the Constitution of the United States speaks for itself. There is no need to rewrite, change or reinterpret it to suit the fancies of special interest groups or protected classes.
