Reckoning with whiteness: Kansas Chamber of Commerce throws a hissy fit over US Chamber endorsement of Native American incumbent


Meet the Board of Directors.  Diversity is not its strong point.

There are 11 more members, but Retiring Guy ran out of room and patience.  They're all white, 10 men and 1 woman.

The U.S. Chamber’s endorsement of Davids and other Democrats represented a strategic shift intended to curry favor with Democrats in anticipation that they would maintain their House majority. It also came after years of tension with then-President Donald Trump’s administration on trade policy, which put a strain on the decades-long alliance between Republicans and the business community.
