More black lawmakers are beginning to voice dissent over a U.S. military strike against Syria, and the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has asked members to "limit public comment" until they know more about the issue, The Cable first reported.
The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus said race relations in America haven’t improved any since the election of President Obama — and as a matter of fact, they’ve even gotten worse.
Just two weeks after Janet Napolitano announced her resignation as Secretary of Homeland Security, the Congressional Black Caucus has suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot.
