Real Racism: House Democrats

A paragraph which should have EeeeKane jumping out of his chair:

If you’re wondering why Jan Schakowsky can get away with having her and her husband being tied up in a dirty bank deal without censure by the House of Representatives, while Rep. Maxine Waters is currently facing ethics charges for her and her husband’s involvement with OneUnited, the answer’s easy: Schakowsky is white, and is thus simply fundamentally real to Democratic leadership in a way that no African-American Member of Congress could hope to be to them. It should not be a surprise that House ethics investigations are being allowed to continue only against those legislators whose seats are considered locked-in by the Democrats anyway.

That's not the first time that observation has been made, nor will it be the last.
