Congressional White Caucus: for whites only

From this:
Freshman Rep. Stephen I. Cohen, D-Tenn., is not joining the Congressional White Caucus after several current and former members made it clear that a black lawmaker was not welcome.

"I think they're real happy I'm not going to join," said Cohen, who succeeded Rep. Harold Ford, D-Tenn., in a majority-white Memphis district. "It's their caucus and they do things their way. You don't force your way in. You need to be invited."

Cohen said he became convinced that joining the caucus would be "a social faux pas" after seeing news reports that former Rep. William Lacy Clay Sr., D-Mo., a co-founder of the caucus, had circulated a memo telling members it was "critical" that the group remain "exclusively European-American."

...The bylaws of the caucus do not make race a prerequisite for membership, a House aide said, but no non-white member has ever joined.

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., who is black, tried in 1975 when he was a sophomore representative and the group was only 6 years old...

Well, you have taken a wikipedia article and reversed the facts COMPLETELY. None of this is true at all. Just google "Rep. Pete Stark" and you will see he is white. He tried to join the BLACK caucus and he was told it was for blacks only. Liberal assholes, you people are so fucking retarted.

Clearly no one has the intelligence to understand comedy anymore.
