    Interesting Read:

    "When Vincent Evans arrived as a bright-eyed first-year at Florida A&M, the country's largest
    historically black university, he knew he wanted to get involved in politics. So when an older student
    leader approached him one afternoon after a student government meeting to ask if he wanted an all
    expenses paid trip to D.C., Evans jumped at the opportunity. The trip, it turned out, was sponsored by
    the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, the country's most powerful pro-Israel
    lobbying outfit. Israel is under growing attack from Palestinian and international activists who call the
    country a racist apartheid state. In response, its staunchest U.S. lobby is recruiting black students as
    moral shields to make the case for Israeli impunity. At historically black colleges and universities
    (known as HBCU's) around the country, AIPAC is finding and developing a cadre of black allies to
    declare there's no way Israel can be racist. In his four years in college, Evans traveled to D.C. at least
    10 times on AIPAC's dime."
