If this #BlackMenEnroll hashtag were reversed and said “WhiteMenEnroll” I’m sure that wouldn’t be racist, right?

As the calendar races toward whenever the hell the real Obamacare enrollment deadline is, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) took to Twitter to promote its #BlackMenEnroll campaign.
The pathetic push targeted at black American men is not only racist, but it’s blatantly sexist. After I started retweeting the CBC’s racially targeted tweets with the hashtag #BlackMenEnroll, people on Twitter were still shocked with disbelief.
Oh, the stupid is real.
Here’s tax cheat Charlie Rangel urging black men to enroll:
And here you can see Rep. Hank “Guam might tip over” Johnson pimpin’ Obamacare:
And here is Rep. Barbara Lee holding her #BlackMenEnroll sign:

Rep. Lee recently called Rep. Paul Ryan a racist for talking about poverty in inner cities. Would Barbara lee find it racially incentive if Rep. Paul Ryan took a picture of himself holding up a sign that read #WhiteMenEnroll?
Last month, CNN reported that only 19% of Latinos and 20% of blacks have looked for health insurance plans on healthcare.gov or their state exchanges compared to 28% of whites, according to a Commonwealth Fund survey.
In the end, this shamelessly racist and sexist campaign to encourage a subgroup of Americans to buy a product they clearly don’t want to purchase tells you all you need to know about the Congressional Black Caucus and the hubris of the Democratic party.
