Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond, who heads the Congressional Black Caucus, issued this statement today on the departure of former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon (who was, according to President Donald Trump's administration, not fired):
"Firing Steve Bannon is not enough because the issue of him working in the White House has never only been about him. It's also been about the racist and discriminatory policies he's helped draft and implement which hurt African Americans and other communities or color. So yes, Bannon needs to go — as do other white supremacists working in this Administration — but the policies need to go too."
Bannon immediately returned to working for Breitbart News, according to the website, where he will serve as executive chairman.
