So says the CBC. Obama is the racist. Must be his mothers side.

“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. According to a Politics365 analysis released last week, that’s the fewest by any president over the last 38 years.
Earlier this year, the White House faced scrutiny over an alleged lack of diversity among Obama’s inner circle. Those questions have intensified with Obama’s senior-most Cabinet nominations, including former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) for Defense secretary, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) for secretary of State and Chief of Staff Jack Lew for Treasury secretary.

A little known fact - President George W. Bush appointed Eric Holder as acting Attorney General in 2001.

http://politic365.com/2012/04/26/oba...ks-at-the-top/

President Bush appointed five black cabinet members - Collin Powell and Condalezza Rice(Secretary of State), Rod Paige(Secretary of Education), Alphonso Jackson(HUD Secretary), and Eric (place)Holder(acting Attorney General).

Brack Obama has only appointed one black cabinet member?

The liberals must think that he is racist.

Like seriously! What percentage of Americans are black? What percentage of people who are highly educated are blacks?

There, you got your answer.

Why would anyone ask the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about whites versus blacks in America?

Why would the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation keep out whites?

There would have been one more, Susan Rice, if it wasn't for the right wing hatchet job on her over Benghazi.

Hilarious. Then if he hires more than two, you'll b*tch that they can't possibly be qualified and he's only hiring them because they're black. SMH...

Conservative white folks LOVE to rig this game so that you can't win regardless....which is why talking race with them is idiotic at best.

The OP is salty because blacks aren't complaining about it. But of course, if we complain, then we're whiners.

See what I mean?

I don't care about the race of his appointees. The head guy is black. That's not enough?

Why in the hell should the CBC let whites in their caucus? Do the other minority caucuses let white folks in?

It's time to trash the "CBC's" of the US. The LAST glass ceiling for "Black" people was taken out by Obama, 2 times.

It's the double standard, if this was a white President you'd never hear the end of it.
