Sen. Barbara Boxer recently was called out for doing just that when talking with a black businessman during a committee hearing:
"We are referring to the experts regardless of their color," he said. "And for someone to tell me, an African-American, college-educated veteran of the United States Army that I must contend with some other black group and put aside everything else in there. This has nothing to do with the NAACP and really has nothing to do with the National Black Chamber of Commerce. We're talking energy and that road the chair (Boxer) went down, I think, is god-awful."
Basically, she implied that just because another black businessman of an entirely different organization, NAACP, agreed with her that he must also agree with her. This was insulting to the president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce.
