I think it's safe to assume that his reception is going to be chilly a best.
Why does he want to join the Congressional Black Caucus, anyway? I really like him, but I don't understand why he wants to do this.
Why is there a black caucus or a Hispanic caucus? So much for post-racialism.
How is he going to do that? And isn't that already well-known about the CBC?I have a little more faith in West to be able to shake up the CBC a little bit. I think he'll be able to expose the CBC as being just the Leftist racist organization that it is.
As for whether it's known, that depends upon whom. You and I know this because we're politically aware and pay attention to stuff like this. A whole lot of the voting public, though, is not politically aware at all, and they just swoon at whatever the CBC says because, well, they represent the Black people, right? The CBC (and by extension Democrats) would have everyone believe that Black people are all far-Left revolutionaries. This stereotype gets reinforced with the CBC's makeup and some historical points like the Black Panthers. In reality, though, if you were to question Black people individually and by issue, particularly older Black folks, you would find that a lot of them are far more conservative (especially socially, but also fiscally) than they're made out to be as a group.
Of course, you and I already know all of this, but like I said, a lot of the voting public doesn't. West has a chance to make a real splash here.
