Representing the American black demographic in Washington, DC, comes under the purview of the Congressional Black Caucus. They look at everything through the lens of race and promote anything that benefits black Americans above all else. So, it was disturbing to find that they spend lavishly on themselves as an entity.
The PAC associated with this race-based group (PACs are the money arms of any political group) has a mission statement that reads: "[to increase] the number of African Americans in the US Congress [and to] support non-Black candidates that champion our interests, and promote African American participation in the political process-with an emphasis on young voters."
Seems pretty clear cut. So why are these black elitists spending hundreds of thousands of dollars -- donated funds meant to further the black American cause -- on lavish upscale resorts and hotels, catering at exclusive restaurants, and on Broadway tickets. among many other non-political things?
How are any of those expenditures related to advancing the black American cause? Answer: they don't.
This spending is indicative of the Washington, DC, swamp mindset. This has nothing to do with "public service," and everything to do with living "high on the hog" off other people's money, a purely Socialist and Oligarchic thing to do.
So, next time you hear Maxine Waters or Jim Clayburn or any of the other CBC mouthpieces talking about the plight of the poor black Americans, remember how they spent money meant to further the cause of black Americans.
