Anything less than kicking him out of the party and Congress is a "tacit acceptance of racism from the Republican Party," says Rep. Karen Bass.
Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) comments on white supremacy and white nationalism have sparked a call by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to kick him out of government altogether.
"If Republicans really believe these racist statements have no place in our government, then their party must offer more than shallow temporary statements of condemnation," said, CBC Chairwoman Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) in a statement.
"Instead, they must actually condemn Mr. King by removing him from his committee assignments so that he can no longer affect policies that impact the very people he has made it clear he disdains."

McDonald's says their "highest priority is always the safety and well being of our employees ..."
The McDonald's employee that taught Daniel Willis Taylor a lesson is Yasmine James, according to St. Petersburg Police Department. Witness Kinie Biandudi, who recorded the incident, posted on Facebook:
"YES this really did happen last night for all those asking me... it all started because he wanted a straw!!!"
"The young girl said she used to box. After this fight, he came back and went behind the counter and tried to fight the manager. The guy left before the cops arrived."
The affidavit says Taylor kicked Tateona Bell in the stomach while she was standing near the exit.
"The defendant was being escorted out of the business by management due to him battering another employee and causing a disturbance," the police report states. "The defendant kicked the victim in the stomach while she was standing near the exit door. There are several witnesses and the incident was captured on video."
statement: "Our highest priority is always the safety and well-being of our employees and customers at our restaurants," said McDonald's Spokesperson Keisha Boyd. "We have been in contact with the police department and are fully cooperating with their investigation."
Social media is calling for McDonald's to support the employee:
@McDonalds when will you be assisting your employee in pressing charges against this man and also training your staff on how to properly handle an assault on a woman and one of your employees. We need answers NOW. @StPetePD

Exactly! She was “standing her ground," the law in Florida that others use to get away with deadly force against “us." That area is known to be highly racist. Of course not everyone but that is the culture of MANY in that area and neighboring communities.

Hey, @McDonalds, this manager needs to be fired immediately. And if your managers are scared to protect their staff from physical assault because they fear repercussion from you, you need to see to change that culture ASAP.

Yang's hatred almost killed his roommate. He now faces attempted murder charges.
In April of 2018, police investigated, former Dean's List college chemistry major, Yukai Yang at Pennsylvania's Lehigh University for writing "N***er Get Out of Here" on Juwan Royal's, his Black roommate, personal belongings. Yang was connected to the crime because his handwriting on a written statement to police matched the racist graffiti found on Royal's belongings, police said. But he didn't stop there. The student also tried to murder the Lehigh University graduate.
New Jersey sports associations have dismissed this racist's behavior before.

"Black people have always been underestimated. The Black college experience is still an exceptional way to train young people," said Senator Art Haywood, a Morehouse Graduate.
What Kamala Harris, Alma Adams, Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams all have in common, in addition to being influential in U.S. politics, is they're graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities ( HBCUs) — Howard University, North Carolina A&T, Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University, and Spelman College.
Approximately 40 percent of the members of Congress are HBCU graduates, according to the Network Journal, a Black professional and small business magazine. And recipients of The United Negro College Fund and Thurgood Marshall Foundation scholarships graduate from college at rates well above the national average.
"We're producing outstanding leaders in all of the major professions," said Harry L. Williams, president and CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and former Delaware State president.
"Anytime you can look at (HBCU) success stories, it just enhances their relevancy and continues to move them forward in a positive way."
This year, a record 38 women of color were elected to Congress. Many of them are HBCU graduates.
The prospect of so many Black-college graduates being elected to statewide office in the same year is unprecedented, Keneshia Grant, an assistant professor of political science at Howard University, said.
And they are touting their HBCU training. Abrams expressed her disapproval of legislation plans for education that did not include those institutions.
As a Spelman alumna, I share the concern raised by @RepRichmond. HBCUs are vital for economic independence. https://t.co/C5DtYKPukP

Gillum responded to President Trump's tweet attacking him about his lack of Ivy League education:
Mr. @realDonaldTrump, I am a graduate of THE Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU) — an HBCU founded on October 3, 1887. Google it. 🐍 https://t.co/I8uOokptJA

Art Haywood is one of four Black state senators in Pennsylvania, and one of two from Morehouse.
"If the two Black state senators had come from Harvard or Yale, then those schools would get all the credit," Haywood said.
"Black people have always been underestimated," Haywood said. "I don't think there's any more validation required. The Black college experience is still an exceptional way to train young people."
Of politicians like Abrams and Gillum, the president of HBCU Dillard University Walter Kimbrough said they are sending a message: "It's a reaffirmation, not only for students but for families, that you can go to an HBCU and compete with anyone."
Approximately 13 percent of HBCU graduates are CEOS, 40 percent are engineers and 50 percent are professors at non-HBCUs, according to the Network Journal.
The HBCUs Make America Strong: The Positive Economic Impact of Historically Black Colleges and Universities study shows how the United States economy benefits from HBCUs: $14.8 billion in economic impact. In addition, graduates predominantly come from low-income areas, giving them and the communities the opportunity to break cycles of poverty and open doors to successful and lucrative careers. Individual graduates can earn $927,000 within their lifetime, $130 billion collectively over their lifetime.
School board says the teachers exercised poor judgement during a team building exercise; suspended them with pay.
