Congressional Black Caucus Vows To #RootOutRacism From Trump Administration
The Congressional Black Caucus is livid at Trump’s lukewarm, disingenuous and morally equivalent response to the hate crimes against Blacks and Jews in Charlottesville, Virginia recently.
After an emergency meeting was called, the CBC is doubling-down on their efforts to #RootOutRacism in the White House and any other branch of the federal government.
CBC chairman Cedric Richmond is spearheading the campaign that will focus efforts on combating racist government official as well as racist policy. Here’s what he recently told https://www.nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/black-caucus-vows-root-out-racism-federal-policy-white-house-n794221NBCNews:
“The people that work in the White House should not be white nationalists or white supremacists,” Richmond said on a conference call with reporters Monday. “[Steve] Bannon is gone but you still have [Stephen] Miller and [Sebastian] Gorka and that still sends a horrible message and anyone else in the White House who shares those views.”
