Black caucus rejects membership of white


www.nwanews.com

Rep. Richard Carroll of North Little Rock, Arkansas’ only Green Party legislator, asked to be a member of the Arkansas Black Legislative Caucus but was rejected because he’s white.

(*Cut*)

Another caucus member, Sen. Joyce Elliott, D-Little Rock, said Carroll’s interest in the caucus is “commendable” but "since it’s called the ‘black caucus’ he can’t be a member. It is a caucus defined as being black. All discrimination is not bad."

Yes ATS:
In the "post-racial" Age of Saint Obama, Patron Saint of Diversity, Multiculturalism and, well, "Post-Racialism" (Let a thousand angels praise His glories!) it appears that some nasty old racists are doggedly clinging to a disproven-
Wait, they're not white - are they?

In a similiar vein:
New Memphis City schools superintendant "needs" to be black.
White representative "can't represent" black minister
"Minority" students need "minority" teachers - but white students need "minority" teachers too
Guess what: Turns out "minority" students again need teachers that "look like them"
81.8% of black firm employees are "African-American
"High level black executives" support idea of "no whites in senior management

Compare this to:
Not enough "African/Hispanic-Americans" in "gifted" student program
More "diversity" needed in business schools
More "diversity" needed on television
Pittsburgh mayor "pushes for diversity" in police force, EMS etcp/url]
[url=http://www.sacbee.com/111/story/1034584.html]Non-profit organisations harassed into supporting "minority" organisations

Massachusetts civic leaders and business executives "push for diversity"


Another caucus member, Sen. Joyce Elliott, D-Little Rock, said Carroll’s interest in the caucus is “commendable” but "since it’s called the ‘black caucus’ he can’t be a member. It is a caucus defined as being black. All discrimination is not bad."


Yet Ms. Elliott I have the sneaking suspicion you'd be the first person donating to the ACLU, ADL or SPLC if a "White Caucus" was created.

For those few of you reading this (most of whom probably already hold similiar views on this subject - I've resigned myself to the fact that the more..."strident" Lefties on AboveTopSecret tend to ignore glaring evidence of the
"Diversity Double Standard
), I have this to say in conclusion.
"Diversity", and the promotion of which, is little more than a barefaced lie designed to harangue white Americans into becoming the new underclass.

But haranguing whites for displaying ethnic "preference", while ignoring said ethnic "preference" among non-whites, is at best insulting and at worst downright hypocritical:
We either live in a completely "post-racial" age, or we don't.

How best to illustrate the "white versus non-white" hypocritical standards of the West? Native Hawaiians legislating for said Hawaiians to occupy a "superior position" in Hawaii = GOOD, but Native Britons legislating for said Britons to occupy a "superior position" in Britain = BAD

im just waiting for the WET *White Entertainment channel* for my television. im sick of seing rap videos broadcast on my TV and want to see some Creedence Clearwater Revival videos. is that so hard to ask? oh im sorry im not allowed to ask for something white because having something white only = racist. Obama may have the highest job in the land, but he is still living in government housing, talk about bringing the black man down

I can't believe you are linking to the BNP website.

I honestly thought this thread might have something to say, but instead you linked to a well known hate group.

Shame on you.

Rep. Carroll was elected in a district that is almost 60% black and that was why he asked to join the black caucus.

The Jim Crow laws are alive and well in Arkansas, They're just being used by the blacks against the whites now.

I guess racism is OK, just as long as the racists are black and Democrats.

The BNP is not a hate group.
I can't believe someone used Wikipedia as a legitimate source.

"The BNP is not a hate group."

oh my days. you're not english, are you? otherwise you'd know that they are a hate group. why aren't policemen banned from being members the BNP? take a guess. only a tiny, tiny minority of people claim the BNP aren't a bunch of racists, using all sorts of verbal acrobatics to try and spin the views as anything BUT racist

The BNP IS a hate group and are well known for it.

Wiki is as good a source as any - why not read this debate about wiki and then come back and tell me what you think of wiki as a source.

I don't care what a debate on a conspiracy forum has to say about Wiki. Cite Wiki as a source on a thesis, and see what happens.

star for you!

Rep. Carroll has the right to represent his entire district & this was one of the ways he saw best to do that. For them to deny him based on race alone is wrong anyway they cut it.

I think your are trying to divert the attention from the news to the source. If the news is true then the source shouldnt make a difference. If the news is true this is disgusting.

Funny, I thought they were a political party.

Either way, spitting hairs about whether or not the BNP are a hate group doesn't really address the issue here, does it?


Discrimination is a two way street. If someone is being refused a position simply because of their race then it is wrong, no matter what race that person happens to be.

I dont think I mentioned you. I was responding to Budski whos first response was "Well that is a hate group" even if it is to me it makes no difference. If the news is true I dont care about the source. If the news is true it is disgusting and hypocritical.

Quite simply, the BNP is represented in the London Assembly. I can't imagine the good people of England would elect a representative to serve them who is a member of a hate group.

That's not fair and the members of the Black Caucus know this. I can't believe that they won't let the guy join just because he is white.

I hope that Rep. Richard Carroll fights for his right to join the Black Caucus.

i'm white,,, and i always wondered why i couldn't enroll in a all black college,,,,,,,,,and there's no such thing as an all white college because it'd be racism.

i never understood this,,,, seems like a 2 way street and you can't have it both ways or can you

i guess apparently you can
