Congressional Black Caucus Concerned that Barack Obama Has Yet to Appointed African-Americans to his Second-term Cabinet.


Congressional Black Caucus to Obama … It’s time to pay up for the 2012 black vote.

As reported at The Hill, the Congressional Black Caucus is voicing some concern that President Barack Obama has yet to appoint any African-Americans to his second term Cabinet. In other words, hey Barack, after getting 95% of the black vote, its time to pay up, where are all the black people? Where is the diversity? Where is the equal opportunity? Where is the NAACP, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton chanting “no justice, no peace?” Where are the cries of racism? Don’t you love the double standard?

The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus said she is concerned that President Obama has not yet appointed African-Americans to his second-term Cabinet.

Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) said Obama’s appointees do not reflect the nation’s diverse population — at least, so far.

“I am concerned that you have moved forward with new cabinet appointments and yet, to date, none of them have been African American,” her letter to Obama states. “You have publicly expressed your commitment to retaining diversity within your cabinet. However, the people you have chosen to appoint in this new term have hardly been reflective of this country’s diversity.”

      How many presently in the Black caucus would be qualified for the tasks in the cabinet? Apparently the President has not found any to date.

      A President’s Cabinet should be based on picking qualified people they feel comfortable working with and like most things should not be based on some basis of racial equality.

      There are plenty of qualified “black” men and women, they just don’t belong to the select conclave of power merchants that put Sotero in office.

      I hope this is a wake up call to all Americans of all walks. Unless you are in the conclave you are just a tool. Look at this pattern how they use people and cast them aside. Do you remember Rev. Wright? Do you recall the earlier days when that church was an issue. Sotero admitted that he went to that church for the political connections and nothing else. That is who he is period.
