The Coalition of American Voices Launches a Petition Condemning Rhetoric Used by Members of the Congressional Black Caucus.


In the last few weeks, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have declared war on the Tea Party, and slandered the movement as being racially motivated. Representative Frederica Wilson (D-Florida), for example, told people, “the real enemy is the Tea Party,” and Representative Maxine Waters (D-California) said the Tea Party can “go straight to Hell.”

But the most incendiary accusations came from Indiana Democratic Congressman Andre Carson, who told attendees of a Congressional Black Caucus sponsored event in Miami that “some of these folk in Congress would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now — of this tea party movement — would love to see you and me…hanging on a tree.”

In light of these accusations, a new group of Conservative leaders from all over the country, including several prominent and proud Black Conservatives, have formed the Coalition of American Voices, in direct response to the slanders being perpetuated by the Congressional Black Caucus.

Founder C.L. Bryant says, “In all of history, there are few activities that are more deplorable than slave trading: one of them is race bating. The Coalition of American Voices is dedicated to opposing both.”

The group has launched a website www.thecoalitionofamericanvoices.org which contains a petition demanding an end to the slanders and racist rhetoric of the Congressional Black Caucus and a formal reprimand by Congress and the Obama Administration. The petition also lobbies businesses that contribute to members of the Congressional Black Caucus to cease contributions, and calls for the main stream media to explain their silence on the violent and hateful rhetoric they claim to be against. The Coalition of American Voices will be sending invitations to members of Congress to sign the petition and asking them to bring forth legislation to coincide with its aims.
