Congressional Black Caucus visits Cuba
Barbara Lee, Laura Richardson, and Bobby Rush met with Raul and Fidel Castro yesterday. They met the Castro brothers under the auspices of the Congressional Black Caucus. They will report their findings to Nancy Pelosi very shortly.
Now, someone help me here. Why would the Congressional Black Congress be negotiating US policy? Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense if the Congressional Hispanic Caucus met with Hispanic leaders? Several of their members very openly support normalizing relations with Cuba, and I imagine a few can even speak the local language. So why didn’t they go or be invited?
Makes me go hmmmm. So far, it’s not raised any eyebrows on any major media that I am aware of.
Anyone want to take a stab at why the Hispanics were not invited to negotiate with Hispanics? I truly am open to suggestion. I’ve got my ideas, but I hope I’m wrong.
