When Politics Imitates Lethal Weapon 2

What happens when a white politician asks to join the Tennessee Black Caucus?

“No! You can't be a member.” I asked “why?”
He answered “because you are white.”
Rep. Stacey Campfield

From Lethal Weapon 2:
Consulate Envoy: I don't think you want to go to South Africa.
Roger Murtaugh: Why not?
Consulate Envoy: Because you're black!
