Are House Democrats racist?

Consider this:

The House ethics committee is currently investigating seven African-American lawmakers — more than 15 percent of the total in the House. And an eighth black member, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), would be under investigation if the Justice Department hadn’t asked the committee to stand down.

Not a single white lawmaker is currently the subject of a full-scale ethics committee probe

If the people involved were not Democrats, a quota-obsessed liberal would consider that ratio to be proof of racism.  But then quota-obsessed liberals are usually wrong.

Last week, the ethics committee opened full investigations into Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Rep. Laura Richardson (D-CA),  Rep. Rangel (D-NY) is the subject of two investigations.  One of those investigation regards allegations that he accepted corporate money to pay for Carribean travel.  Rep. Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-MI), Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS.), Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ), and Rep. Del. Donna Christensen (D-Virgin Islands) are also being investigated for similar travel issues.
