America is sick and tired of the division. We’ve given the Congressional Black Caucus a pass, as we ignored the fact that they’ve chosen to segregate themselves from the rest of the lawmakers in Congress, creating exactly the environment they fought so hard to erase. Former Reagan advisor Jeffrey Lord however, was not about to give Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP a “pass” when the subject of Trump’s “racist” comment during his most recent press conference was brought up in the discussion. Of course anyone with half a brain could see that Trump’s request of the black radio host to help him “arrange a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus” was nothing more than an effort to put out an olive branch to some of the most divisive people in Congress
Watch NAACP’s Cornell William Brooks, who was at loss for words Thursday after he was asked a hypothetical question about allowing a Congressional White Caucus to be formed during a debate on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.
The racially charged exchange began during a discussion of President Trump having asked an African-American reporter from a black-focused new radio outlet if she knew the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus
The best part of the video comes when Cornell William Brooks DEMANDS an apology from Lord for using KKK member David Duke to make a perfectly logical analogy of how dividing our lawmakers down racial lines could get very ugly if it’s allowed to continue.
“Frankly I used to think the Congressional Black Caucus, when it was first formed, was a good thing,” Lord began. “I changed my mind on this. I don’t think there should be any caucuses in the House of Representatives that are divided by race. I mean, heaven forbid, if David Duke got elected and wanted to form a Congressional White Caucus, that would be appalling,” he said, explaining his change of heart.
“Sir, Jeffrey, that is…I’m looking for a word here. Beyond…it’s completely preposterous. To compare the Klan to the Congressional Black Caucus,” Brooks smilingly replied, visibly upset by the analogy his fellow panelist drew.
“You would be okay with a Congressional White Caucus? Really?” Lord shot back, interrupting Brooks’ explanation of the Black Caucus’s purpose. “I didn’t say that,” was Brook’s immediate reply. –Daily Caller
