How Many Members of the Congressional Black Caucus Refused to Sign the Hoyer-Cantor Letter in Support of Israel?

In response to the disturbing tensions rising between Israel and the United States Congressmen Steny Hoyer and Eric Cantor wrote a bi-partisan letter. Signed by 327 representatives, the letter is an entirely moderate, reasonable commitment to the US-Israel relationship.
Below is a list of those who did not sign it, appearing at the Zionism and Israel Information Center.
In the original list from the Information Center Republicans were included in bold and representatives endorsed by J Street were in red. Democrats were in plain text. I’ve highlighted below another group in this bold maroon font: members of the Congressional Black Caucus, all of whom are listed here.
