    It has taken less than one year of Trump regulation-cutting, and just the prospect of tax reform, to create the best employment prospects for African-Americans in history, according to employment data just released this morning. Christopher Rugaber of the Associated Press reports: The unemployment rate remained 4.1 percent for a third straight month, the lowest level since 2000, the Labor Department said Friday.

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics( BLS), the unemployment rate for black Americans is the lowest it has been since the year 2000, 17 years ago. In November, the national unemployment rate for black Americans, ages 16 and over, was 7.3%. The last time it was 7.3% was in the year 2000, during the months September, October and November. During the Bush and Obama years (2001 -2016), the black unemployment rate fluctuated between 7.7% and a high of 16.8%. Back in September 2017, the rate was 7.0%, a low that had not been seen since April of 2000. Prior...

    After not appearing in the museum for most of its inaugural year, Clarence Thomas now has a spot in the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Linda St. Thomas, chief spokesperson for the Smithsonian Institution, said the museum installed an exhibition case called “The Supreme Court” honoring both black justices who have sat upon the nation’s highest court.

    A Janitor's View ^ | August 16, 2017 | reasonmclucus
    Jesse Washington has reported that many dark skinned Americans recognize that they are not "African" Americans in spite of what some racists say. Th e term "African-American" perpetuates the principle tenet of Southern racism: "part black, all black" under the "one drop rule". Those who use the term are in effect segregating Americans with dark complexions from the rest of the population they may be related to. Those who use the term believe that those with dark complexions should only be able to claim their African ancestors and should forget about ancestors who came from Europe, North America or Asia...

    Clarence Thomas, one of nine members of the Supreme Court and the second black to ever join the Court, is not in the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. Asked to explain Thomas' absence, the chief spokeswoman for the Smithsonian said, "The museum's exhibitions are based on themes, not individuals." Yet the museum plans to add a popular local D.C. television news broadcaster. The museum's founding director, Lonnie Bunch, said the broadcaster "symbolized that it was really important that America was changing and his presence was a symbol of that change." And Thomas, raised in...

    Sadly, this type of disciplinary action is just as common as it is outrageous, as girls of color face many overlapping barriers to succeed in school, the workplace and even in society. National data shows that Black girls are 5.5 times more likely to be suspended from school than white girls, and that rate balloons to 8.5 times in my own state of New Jersey.

    Obamacare, as Obama and the Democrats birthed it, exists no more!!! Obama now has three major failures, with no positive accomplishments during his eight years as POTUS. Obamacare has thankfully died today, in the House of Representatives, African-Americans gained nothing during the two (2)Obama POTUS terms, and actually fell back badly via crime, opportunity, freedom, liberty and economic progress, across the country, and, Obama, Clinton and Rice have the deaths of millions of innocents across the world, and USA military folks dripping from their incompetent hands. I really do hope and pray, that the Democrat Party will continue to follow...

    President Trump is set to sign an executive order aimed at boosting historically black colleges and universities, known as HBCUs, on Tuesday amid a period of increased outreach to the institutions from high-level members of the administration. The order will allow HBCU officials to serve as advisors to Trump on his urban agenda as well as increase the private sector's role in the colleges and universities, a White House official said.
  • More black millennial men voted GOP in 2016 than previously thought (25%!)

    After the shocking results of the 2016 election, most analysts focused on the shift among working-class whites towards Donald Trump. However, there was another seismic transformation on election day that may have longer repercussions: young black men are leaving the Democratic Party like never before. Exit polls of the nationwide House races showed two important numbers, black men and millennials voted for the GOP in numbers that hadn’t been seen in decades. According to CNN exit polls, 18 percent voted of black men for a Republican candidate for the U.S. House, which is more than three times the number of...

    The much-heralded National African-American Museum of Culture and History, part of the historic Smithsonian Institution and museums, does not live up to the historical accuracy it promises. Here are important historical figures who we looked for, but could not find any mention of in the nation’s newest museum: 1. George Washington Carver, a botanist and inventor 2. Thurgood Marshall, the first black Supreme Court justice 3. Clarence Thomas, who replaced Marshall as the lone black American on the Supreme Court 4. Matthew Henson, who explored the North Pole 5. Condoleezza Rice, except for a joint photo with Colin Powell, no...

    Welcome to Trump Nation: On the Collapse of the Democratic Party Duane, I have known you for decades, man. You are a very intelligent, astute, personable and political guy. History will show that your party nominated and the country elected the wrong guy for the last eight years. If you had been president, your party would be in a hell of a lot better shape than it is now. Because the Democratic party is in tatters. And potentially facing eight long years as a marginalized, leaderless and fractionalized party. From the presidency, down ballot to the Congress and then further...

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trump’s victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...

    This is a big endorsement for Donald Trump. Rev. William Owens, who is the president of the Coalition of African American Pastors, gave his endorsement to Trump today and will be urging others to follow suit. He believes that Trump deserves a chance to prove himself to Christian voters. He also points out how blacks have suffered with the Democratic Party. He believes that Trump can be a great president. The man definitely has faith. Owens marched with the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the civil rights movement. He has launched a campaign urging blacks to abandon the broken...

    Leslie Wimes, the president of the Democratic African-American women's caucus, joins MSNBC's Hallie Jackson to discuss the Clinton campaign being in "panic mode" about low voter enthusiasm in the black community. WIMES: When I said that in September that the enthusiasm level for African-Americans as far as Hillary Clinton's campaign was not there, I was right. They were wrong. They didn't want anyone to know they were in panic mode. HALLIE JACKSON, MSNBC: There is nothing she can do? WIMES: Oh, no. It's over now as far as the African-American community is concerned. She had time back then to get...

    Since policing is a problem, the police should be removed from communities altogether, according to Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza. Garza argued that the United States gives too much respect to police officers, explaining that when police do wrong, a few bad cops are blamed, rather than a “corroded and corrupt system.” “Quite frankly, many of our [Black Lives Matter] members are continuing to investigate what it would mean to have police-free

    Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a town hall event with Sean Hannity of Fox News at a black church in Cleveland, Ohio.

Hannity, a conservative, has publicly endorsed Trump. “I’m not hiding the fact that I want Donald Trump to be the next...
