Congressional Black Caucus Makes This Racist Move

The truth about liberal ‘logic’ is stranger than fiction. You’d think that the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) would accept a new black member of Congress, right? Well, not exactly.

The CBC has blocked a black House Republican from joining the group.

Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., and his staff have reached out to members of the CBC several times, but “all we’ve got is the cold shoulder,” according to Donalds’s spokesman, Harrison Fields.

“Congressman Donalds has expressed interest in joining the CBC, but has yet to receive an official invitation,” said another Donalds aide. “If given, he’d gladly accept.”

Donalds’ office said he believes he’s been barred from the CBC because he is a Republican.

“The sad reality is, although the congressman and those in the CBC share the same race, the R behind his name disqualifies him from membership today,” said Fields.

Donalds previously said he’d like to join the CBC to work on bipartisan legislation that would benefit the black community. One of these key issues is criminal-justice reform.

However, he made it clear he wouldn’t compromise his values to be part of the group.

“I didn’t get into politics to get into the mold of what a black person is supposed to be in politics,” Donalds said back in October.

Currently there are no Republican members in the CBC. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., the only black Republican in the Senate, turned down an invitation to join when he was first elected to the House. And Rep. Burgess Owens, R-Utah, said last year that he has no plans to join this group.
