The CBC is up to it's old tricks, folks. They don't want to admit that they were wrong in getting into bed with the Faux News Network. Twenty-six members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) have signed letters to Sen. Barack Obama
Yes, they have sent letters to Obama, Clinton and Edwards.
Afro-Netizen has a copy of the letter.
I think that those of us who think that Obama, Clinton and Edwards did the right thing, need to drop our own emails and phone calls to them.
Phone: (919) 636-3131
Fax: (919) 967-3644
Please let them know that you appreciate them NOT going to the Faux News Debate, and that you appreciate them going to the Tavis Smiley/PBS Debate in June. Remember, the Tavis Smiley event is a DNC SANCTIONED event; the CBC one is not.
The CBC wanted to crawl into bed with Faux News. Let them choke on it.

I suspect Daddy D'Alesandro would have had a few choice words to say about similar commentary from one of his lieutenants!
Just when you thought impeached and convicted judge Alcee Hastings might have assumed the mantle of statesman, he unburdens himself to CQ in a piece last Friday.
Hastings, you'll recall, had supposedly been pretty much promised the chairmanship of the HIC, in place of Pelosi hate figure (and ranking member) Jane Harman - until sense prevailed.
(Or until Silvestre Reyes was chosen, which may not turn out to be the same thing.)

You may have emailed the campaigns through the ColorOfChange.org website; you may have even personalized the email instead of sending along the pre-typed letter. But if are going to succeed in building pressure (or creating a sh*tstorm, if you will), we need to make the call too:
(919) 636-3131 Edwards
(866) 675-2008 Obama
(202) 263-0180 Clinton

Just days after Democrats canceled a Nevada debate co-sponsored by the cable news network, Fox is negotiating with the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute to broadcast up to two face-offs by presidential candidates. Officials for News Corp., Fox News' parent company, and for the Institute said discussions over co-hosting a Republican and a Democratic debate were still under way Monday.We have to take action to try and prevent this. Here are key members of the Congressional Black Caucus to contact:
Rep. Bennie Thompson
Chair, Congressional Black Caucus Institute
Email: http://benniethompson.house.gov/HoR/MS02 /Contact+Bennie/
Rep. Carolyn Kilpatrick
Chair, Congressional Black Caucus
Rep. Mel Watt
Influential member, Congressional Black Caucus
Make sure to be polite, but firm. If you use email, make sure you send them a link to the Fox Attacks: Black America video. It demonstrates quite clearly who they are negotiating with right now.
It would truly be awful for the CBC to legitimize such an overtly racist propaganda outlet.
