Ralph Nader Say's He IS DISAPPOINTED IN THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS

2004 Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader is going to receive a donation to his campaign from me. He stated this morning on a local radio show in Washington, DC, his "personal dissappointment with the congressional black caucus." Nader, described inner city neighborhoods, full of crime, predatory lenders, legalized loan sharks (rent to own companies) and a host of other issues that plague the inner city.

He put a part of the blame on the shoulders of the CBC and it's leader Ellijah Cummings. Nader urged the CBC to stand up for its issues. To not be passive and speak out on issues that affect African Americans.

Listening to him, this a.m, I could not have agreed more wholeheartedly with his comments. The CBC has done some good things. Lord knows they throw a hell of a party.

When it comes to issues affecting African Americans, they tend to be extremely partisan and not challenging both political parties, i.e. Republican or Democrat to take stands regarding African Americans.

On another note....

American Idol - Finally John Stevens was voted off. However was anyone upset to see George Huff in the bottom? Doesn't bode well for George.
