Sample text

In some sense a spontaneous form agenda-setting and black interests  of representation will emerge because of the development of a unique racial consciousness and belief system that makes black representatives predisposed to vote the way most blacks in the district would want the legislator to vote anyway. In essence their support for black policy preferences should be unparalleled . . because what’s in the best interest of the black masses is also in the best interest of black policymakers.

This conception of a national African American community rests on the notion of a “commonality of black political interests” and on the belief that African American members of Congress can and should “jointly represent” this “black collectivity” (Barnett :). Making a similar point, Canon () writes, “The formative political experiences for the founding members of the CBC were in the civil rights movement of the s. . Many members saw themselves as the spokespersons for all African Americans, not only those in their congressional districts” ().

These data also show that African American legislators do not focus exclusively on racial issues. In fact, it was in only two out of the fourteen legislative sessions considered that a majority of the bills introduced by African Americans focused on such issues. Yet when a black interest bill is introduced, it is at least twice as likely to be introduced by an African American legislator than by a nonblack one.  level. African American legislators tend to devote a greater proportion of their introductions to black interest issues than other representatives.
