Pot Meets Kettle
However; having the associated members of the Black, Latino and Asain Caucus complain about a race based issue is just too ironic to pass without comment.
Perhaps if these members had a little less regard for race in their own identity, the whole situation would be moot.
WHAT, NO WHITE CAUCUS?
August 30, 2006 -- Everybody knows that the New York City Council lacks energy, imagination and - for the most part - integrity and intelligence.
It's running a serious irony deficit, too.
Yesterday, members of the council's Black, Latino, and Asian Caucus (BLAC) met with the press to complain about - of all things - classifying individuals by race and/or ethnic origins.
The issue is an upcoming TV-reality series that will divide up contestants based on ethnicity.
Yeah, that's a pretty obnoxious notion. But if the council members feel that it's repugnant for TV producers to classify people by race - and, again, we agree that it is - then why have they formed a race-driven cliques like BLAC?
The council is hardly unique in this respect. But that doesn't make it right.
