Racial disparity: All active ethics probes focus on black lawmakers The House ethics committee is currently investigating seven African-American lawmakers â more than 15 percent of the total in the House. And an eighth black member, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), would be under investigation if the Justice Department hadnât asked the committee to stand down. Not a single white lawmaker is currently the subject of a full-scale ethics committee probe. http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20091103/pl_politico/29055 Not that I think this is proof of racism. But if the republicans were in charge, the libtards would consider this solid proof of racism. Since it's their own in charge, they are not concerned. More evidence that they really don't care about racism at all, it's just another dishonest tool to use to try to get political power. Since they cannot win on the merits of their ideals, they have to use less honest means to implement their power grabs.
