CBC Leader Concerned Obama Has Named No Blacks to New Cabinet

Jonathan Easley, The Hill, March 11, 2013

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.”

Fudge said in the letter that the CBC had recommended “a number of qualified candidates” that the administration has passed over for various positions.

“Congressional Black Caucus offices have had numerous phone calls from constituents questioning why none of the new appointees will be able to speak to the unique needs of African Americans,” Fudge continued. “Their ire is compounded by the overwhelming support you’ve received from the African American community. As you continue choosing your critical advisors, we want to stress the importance of ensuring every community has a seat at the table. The absence of diverse voices leads to policies and programs that adversely impact African Americans.”

Attorney General Eric Holder, appointed in Obama’s first term, remains the Obama administration’s only black Cabinet-level appointee. {snip}

    “why none of the new appointees will be able to speak to the unique needs of African Americans.”
    Excuse me sir, I speak Jive.

      Just hang loose, blood…..

        They also began to get agitated and started questioning the old lady when she finally got fed up and told them, while still speaking jive, to p*ss off, so to speak.

      • Some Guy

        Slap me slack Jack!

      I hope on election day the voters send Ms. Fudge packing…

  • joesolargenius

    This is most likely because the dems already have a large portion of the black vote locked up due to the perceived race of the prez but still have to kowtow to the Hispanic and Homosexual hate groups that are using this party to gain power and release their jealous rage on the hated White Heterosexual Family.

    • eavesmac

      Of the same type they were born into.

  • So CAL Snowman

    What exactly are the “unique needs” of african americans? Unlimited access to watermelon plantations? Unlimited access to all Foot Locker outlets? Unlimited access to the menthol section at the liquor store? I thought we were all just Americans with the same needs and wants.

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

    But . . . but . . .but we are all equal and race is just a social construct anyway so what does it matter who Obama appoints?

    • MikeofAges

      Yeah, really. As long as it advances the dialectic.

  • a multiracial individual

    There is no black or white, remember?

  • bigone4u

    Mercy! Obama’s evil racist white half has taken control of his helpless noble black half. Someone call an exorcst quick. The explanation oouldn’t be that blacks are not capable of running anything except their mouths, could it?

    • Oil Can Harry

      Blacks and hispanics are whining that Obama’s cabinet isn’t diverse enough. Back in the 90s President Clinton caught flack from media leftards for not appointing enough female cabinet members.

      If the two most p.c. administrations in US history were slammed for not being “diverse” enough then our country is doomed. It just goes to show the racial shakedowns will never end.

      In the future even a totally p.c. corporation or gov’t agency will be ripped for not having enough Muslims. Or Hindus. Or lesbians. Or Eskimos. Or [fill in the blank]…

      • bigone4u

        OK, you inspired me to make up a joke. How many blacks does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer: As many as it takes until they’ve all got jobs.

  • Cabinet posts usually stem from political payback as the buddies of big donors get pushed to the front of the line. Black donations are insignificant and don’t merit consideration. Their voting clout is taken for granted and, consequently, nonexistent. Hence, no black players in Washington’s major leagues.

    • Blacks also do not generally have the social circle from which to “bundle”.

      They also tend to not be generous with their money.

        And they’re wonderful tippers, too. Ask any IHOP waitress.

    • eavesmac

      You mean Don King and Famous Amos have no constituents?

  • The__Bobster

    Obongo is chock full of racial grievances. He dunt need no more homies in his steenkin’ Cabinet.

  • MekongDelta69

    Rep. Marcia Fudge (now, is that name perfect, or what?!) said,
    Congressional Black Caucus offices have had numerous phone calls from constituents questioning why none of the new appointees will be able to speak to the unique needs of African Americans

    Always with ‘special needs’ (the same wimpy leftist name they now call retarded kids).

    So basically, as always, blacks are simply ‘retarded kids.’

  • Barrack Osama

    “Obama’s appointees do not reflect the nation’s diverse population”

    Which of his appointees is pro-white? I don’t mean racially white. I mean, who is it that works to further the interests of that vast group of people who have historically lived in this country? Not a single one.

  • “unique needs”? so what they are saying is that blacks are different? but for decades they have been trying to convince us that we are all the same, I’m am so confused.

    • tjs3023

      Well, they really seem to need cocoa butter.

      • Owen

        Dats cuz we be ashy n sheeeit!

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    And in other news Obama named his lineup for his White House pick-up basketball team and everyone is African-American. No word yet from Rep. Fudge, The NAACP or The Black Caucus on the amount of diversity of this roster.

  • Ralph

    So why the hell haven’t White politicians ever started a White Congressional Congress? No one speaks for Whites and special White interests and needs. Just because there are White politicians doesn’t mean they have any White consciousness and most of those phony weak seeds are just White on the outside and anything but White on the inside.

    Hey, haven’t they heard, race doesn’t matter…..(except when it does) and it matters ALL OF THE TIME WHEN BLACKS ARE IN CHARGE.

    • Skin color trumps all,,,,If it is BLACK

      • StillModerated

        No trump scores better than spades.

  • StillModerated

    I read as far as Martha Fudge and laughed Virginia Gentleman out of my nose!

  • Jim

    The Hollywood facade nature of the President is suggested by the biographical facts (excavate them ) suggesting that he really never considered himself Black and certainly
    not American Black during his formative years, especially after at about age 10, he got
    away from his anti-American schizy mother and went to live in an upscale setting with
    his maternal grandparents in Hawaii, attending a plush high school. His “Blackness” is
    more an Oedipal matter arising from his mother’s brainwashing of him since he was able
    to talk–waking up at 4;30 a.m.. to discuss racism, imperialism, capitalism… The President’s
    dissembling “autobiographies” aside–and his “cookie cut” incidents of raaaycizzim–there
    is scant evidence his mulatto racial features were of any social salience in his upbringing.
    He didn’t speak Black, act Black, or think Black, until he came Stateside and started
    smelling the political coffee. It is as though he is in the Oval Office as winner of
    media tryouts for the role of President. He not only has no Blacks present in his
    Cabinet, there are no Blacks present when he meets with them.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Congressional Black Caucus is concerned that President Obama has not yet appointed African-Americans to his second-term Cabinet.

    Why would obama want blacks in his cabinet? There’s already enough incompetence and dysfunction in the White House and cabinet now.


  • Zackers

    Yet whites are told we Must have leaders who don’t look like us in order that we can better appreciate diversity.

  • concernedcollegekid

    To solve this problem without having to worry about having the correct number of officials of each race let’s only appoint officials whose ancestry reflects the exact racial demographics of the country, so we shouldn’t appoint any official whose ancestry isn’t 63% white, 13% black, 6% Asian, etc. Let’s make breeding programs to create officials with the appropriate racial mix. And of course as the demographics of the country change, we’ll have to kill our officials and breed new officials that reflect the new demographics.

    • Commonsense80

      Make it a rule that Jews not exceed their 2% population share in college admissions, Hollywood, media & academia workforce and watch how quickly they change their anti-white gentile agenda.

  • mythical fiction truth

    Unique is the code word here meaning as in give us everything free asap and whenever we demand it since afterall slavery can never be repaid in a million yrs removing a highly intelligent superior race from their animal life jungled confines where maggot filled spoiled monkey brain was the meat of choice living in a wretched deplorable 3rd world hellhole with thatched huts mud floors complete with every known form of contagious disease, unimaginable poverty, death, malnutrition, very short life span, etc etc. And they claim the white race brought disease to the western hemisphere red mongoloid race of similar savages in todays pc history books to insidiously brainwash young students with lies in order to equalize the 3 races while miscegenating them ?

    One thing that was lacking in the jungle life was any semblance of a functional government so maybe this is why todays Africans in America cling to it like glue knowing the gov will save them from ever being returned to that savage animal diseased death existence where they are not wanted plus gives them everything free of charge.

    Todays spoiled rotten whiny American Africans have the nerve to even compare themselves to their ancestor slaves is a total crock who at least worked for their keep doing soft labor cleaning house or picking cotton for roughly 250 yrs before the Marxist intervention who were responsible for financing their existence as slaves to begin with that is nicely covered up and revised or ignored. But them again we know these are not the real hebrews of the ancient world who were white and of the Shem race and killed off by divine command in AD72 at Masada as recorded by Josephus historian media roman gentile -jew who didnt lie about it.

    We know the khazar mongoloid Japhethite red yellow Asian race origins of todays poser fake jew and of course it is the muslim red child from hell who converted 1000 yrs ago and their false prophet pedophile mohammed warned about who rearranged everything to make himself superior to the real messiah whom he reduced to a simple human.

    The enemy is the muslim red child fake and to this day we are unsure if those in Israel are really jews or just brainwashed after 1000 yrs since the next level to take over for the jews when they were made extinct was supposed to the X factor aka Xian aka white man religionist out of Rome. We do know for some odd reason the 200 yrs of the Great Crusades close to celebrating their 10000 milinium birthday fought both the muslim and so called jew who were obviously the red child race fake jew converts plus the Crusaders never used the “israel” word but instead only used Holy Land since they believed as was written that israel died with the ancient real jews 1000 yrs earlier at the hands of the Roman real new jews aka Xians.

    We realize all this can be confusing for a simple minded liberal like Taylor and his pc hero Jefferson but bottom line the real problem as we know is the red child muslim and of course most of them live in Asia and Africa so the supreme Shem race is destined to destroy both of his brothers races in the end as is written. Sounds crazy but its true or at least you better hope it is. If only 144k real jews made it to the Shem race white man religion paradise or 12k from each of the 12 ancient tribes, then clearly todays jews are all fake and have been since AD72 when they were wiped out by divine command by the future new jews aka Romans who just picked a new pope and is clean of pedophilia.

    Of course not all Africans or Asians aka Hamites and Japhethites were be slaughtered in the end as a small percentage of each race will be spared due to being followers of WMR.

  • Fed Up

    Maybe the reason is not enough Blacks can QUALIFY. I mean you do need function at above grammar school educational levels for a cabinet position.

    • Felix_M

      Yeah, but that hasn’t stopped them from holding elected office or going to medical school, has it? So, why should qualifications matter now?

  • IstvanIN

    Very few of his cabinet members are actually white in the real sense of the word, how many tribesman are there?
