irony can be spelled NAACP
Jim Carroll, political reporter for the C-J, recently noted the appearance of the NAACP's "Civil Rights Federal Legislative Report Card". I found it for 2005-2006 and noticed that the Senate only had one vote that explicitly related to race. There were a bunch of other laws that related to (more) government spending. But that's not about being "colored people", so I'm confused why those would be among their criteria.
Ironically, there were as many votes connected to skin color as there were demands that senators vote against an African-American female judge named Brown who is the daughter of an Alabama share-cropper.
