    in the year 2000 the CBC was the only caucus to stand up to protest the disenfranchisement of the Black electorate in Florida.  As there was not one member of the CBC in the Senate their objection was not sustained, and not one member of that all white august body stood with the CBC.  I'd say they are pretty relevant if you care about Black folks voting and want a group in the Congress that will give a shit when that vote is stolen.

    I am Blackwaterdog! I support Barack Obama and the Democratic Party!! Want some? Get some SUCKERS!!!
