Congressional Black Caucus goes on reality show to tout Black Lives Matter

Bravo TV’s series “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is going full-throttle political this season with an emphasis on the “plight” of young black men growing up in white America and their participation and support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

It began in the December 20 episode when regular cast member Phaedra Parks, who’s husband is serving time in federal prison, remarked to Sheree Whitfield that young blacks “are already an endangered species.”

She choked up when she remarked that she “sat with Michael Brown’s mom in St. Louis.”

Both Parks and Whitfield have sons.

The politics got ramped up in Sunday’s episode, “Mrs. Parks Goes to Washington,” when Parks treated the other housewives to a trip to the nation’s capital for the Million Man March’s 20th anniversary.

After they arrived, they were invited to meet Rep. Fredrica Wilson, a Florida Democrat, and in her they found a kindred spirit.

“People do not like African American boys,” she told the ladies, and proceeded to relate the story of a young boy who asked her where “the jail for white people” is located, as cast member Kim Fields walked out with her eight-year-old son.

At a later point into the episode, members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, joined the housewives for lunch.

“Our children are not going to have the door shut on them,” she yelled at the ladies.

At the Million Man March anniversary celebration, race-baiter Louis Farrakhan invited Parks to sit on the stage as a VIP.

And with that it appears that division between the races has become a form of entertainment.
