So What Role Does The African American Caucus Play?

So when there are more than one black candidate running for office what do the African American Caucus do? Or not do? Or what can they do?

This is why I have never been interested in joining the African American Caucus because I don’t understand the purpose the reasoning behind having one. I have been trying to understand but I just can’t.

I remember when the African American Caucus first began because I was at the table early on. I have attended numerous meetings but never joined because I was trying hard to see how it benefitted black folk.

So can someone help me because I am still trying to understand.

Condolences goes out to the family of the late Donnie Ray Williams. I have been knowing Donnie since I was a little boy. He was always a kind person.

Donnie was a good time person as well.
