01/25/07 - A Reader Points Out That Many Immigrants Pay No Income Tax

From: A Rochester, NY Reader:

I wish to call your attention to an interesting article at www.politico.com  by Josephine Hearn, dated January 24, 2007: "Black Caucus: Whites Not Allowed" .

"Representative Stephen I. Cohen, a white liberal Democrat representing a majority African-American district in Tennessee [VDARE.COM note: Tennessee`s Ninth District, which was deliberately drawn to be "majority African-American."], apparently thought that it would be a good idea to join the Congressional Black Caucus, since he `...felt we had interests in common as far as helping people in poverty...`

"But Rep. Cohen found out that there are certain unwritten social `rules`  after Rep. William Lacy Clay, Sr. (D.-Mo.) circulated a memo saying that the caucus should remain `exclusively African-American`. His son, Rep. William Lacy Clay, Jr. (D.-Mo.) later added: `Mr. Cohen asked for admission, and he got his answer.` `It`s an unwritten rule. It`s understood. It`s clear.` "

Yes, "it`s clear", all right. Apartheid is wrong, wrong, wrong...when whites do it in South Africa.
