CBC Says Hostile Minority Hiring Environment on Hill

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is complaining about the lack of minorites working on Capitol Hill. The CBC has sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requesting mitigation of the descrimination. It is estimated that there are less than 50 Blacks among the hundreds of committee staff positions. What else is new? The environmental movement is worse.

A rumor circulating around Capitol Hill is that Republicans have a better reputation for hiring minorities than Democrats. The Democrats 'talk' a better game though. Then there is that modern fake: "We had no idea." The running joke on Capitol Hill is, "The only people who hire Blacks and Hispanics around here are Blacks, Hispanics and Republicans."
