Seeing that President Obama is paying back other "special interest" groups for helping in his reelection by taking up their cause's (Illegal Immigration, Gay Marriage & Arab Spring), Congressional Black Caucus Chair, Rep. Marcia Fudge of Cleveland, is looking for her share of the pie...
From The PD --
The nation's first black president is not appointing enough African-Americans to his Cabinet, according to Congressional Black Caucus Chair Marcia Fudge of Warrensville Heights.By stating President Obama should appoint a Cabinet member as a political payback and solely because he/she is African-American, besides being racist and further fanning the flames of racial divide, is part of the overall entitlement mind-set that is currently destroying our country.
Fudge sent a letter to President Barack Obama today that complained none of the second-term Cabinet appointments he's announced are African-American. In his first term, Obama appointed African-Americans, including U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk to his Cabinet.
Fudge's letter told Obama that Congressional Black Caucus offices "have had numerous phone calls from constituents questioning why none of the new appointees will be able to speak to the unique needs of African-Americans."
"Their ire is compounded by the overwhelming support you've received from the African American Community," it said. "As you continue choosing your critical advisers, we want to stress the importance of ensuring every community has a seat at the table. The absence of diverse voices leads to policies and programs that adversely impact African-Americans."
Maybe one day, instead of throwing them in the trash can, Congresswomen Fudge, serving in OH-11, a specially drawn & federally gerrymandered - Majority Minority Congressional District, thus making Fudge an Affirmative Action office holder herself, can truly embrace the words of Dr. Martin Luther King...
".... live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character"
