The Congressional Black Caucus has drafted a resolution which is to be read at the funeral for Whitney Houston. America hardly ever hears from the Congressional Black Caucus. Here we are in the midst of high unemployment disproportionately affecting black people, budget cuts that will affect the cost of a college education, an HIV-AIDS crisis in the black community, public education K-12 that is in shambles, etc., etc., etc and the CBC makes sure news of this resolution gets out in the main stream media. I'm the first one to say Whitney Houston was a rare talent, but for the CBC to make a big deal about this resolution while being quiet and in my opinion ineffective when it comes to far more significant issues on Capitol Hill is disappointing. Whitney's death and funeral is not significant. It is sad that she leaves a daughter, family and millions of fans mourning but not significant in the big picture of black america and the national political agenda. The national political agenda and black participation in it for the benefit of black people is the job of the CBC and as much energy needs to be placed here as in jumping on the death of Whitney Houston bandwagon.
