Is the United States Government targeting black lawmakers? According to George E. Curry and NNPA Columnist, the Department of Justice just may be. He writes, although a House of Representatives ethics committee is known to be looking into the activities of at least 19 members of Congress, the only full-scale investigations underway are against seven Black lawmakers. African Americans make up 15 percent of Congress but 100 percent of those subjected to a full-scale investigation, raising questions about a double-standard. According to media accounts, House members under full investigation as of late July were Democrats Charles Rangel (N.Y.), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Bennie Thompson (Miss.), Carolyn Kilpatrick (Mich.), Donald Payne (N.J.), Laura Richardson (Calif.) and Donna Christensen (U.S. Virgin Islands). An investigation of an eighth member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson, Jr. of Illinois, has been delayed at the request of the Justice Department, which is examining Jackson’s alleged role in impeached Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich pay-for-play corruption scheme. Lets talk abbout this tonight, on the slugfest. Let's also talk about, how records indicate President Obama’s approval rating among Blacks — his staunchest supporters to date — has dipped. - This and other issues... If you can handle the truth.
