... So true. When A Black ELECTED Republican has had enough, you know you're deep in racist territory.

Hurd is one of just two African-American Republicans in both the House and Senate (total of 248 Republicans). South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is the other.

The liberals celebrating fewer African Americans in congress clearly don’t want them to have a voice.

It's considered unlikely for the Republicans to win back the House in 2020, and they've had quite a few retirements. Rep. Hurd probably has other opportunities that are more enticing at this point. He's well qualified for political office, so I'm sure we'll see him again.

Who is celebrating?

There is nothing celebratory in any of the posts or the original post.

You are making stuff up in your head to suit your narrative.
