Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Democratic congressmen in the Black Congressional caucus have all been voted from districts in which whites are in the minority. They spout off on TV about how diverse the party is, but no white district has a black democratic congressman.

Check out some of those district boundaries in Maryland and Illinois. Real natural those are.
