  • Kentucky Republican Running for AG: I Can Prove the Democrats Are Not Tolerant

    Daniel Cameron, a black Kentucky Republican running for attorney general, shared that he was the target of a liberal lawyer's racial slur this past week.  Yesterday, a liberal attorney said I should stop eating "coon flakes" in a @CourierJournal interview. I am a proud lifelong Republican, part of a diverse @KYGOP ticket, and yes I support @realDonaldTrump. It's time to stop telling black Americans what we're allowed to believe— Daniel Cameron (@djaycameron) August 7, 2019 In an interview with Fox News's Brian Kilmeade Thursday night, Cameron questioned whether the Democrats can really claim to be the party of "tolerance," considering...
  • Identity Politics Today: Black Faces Should Stop Speaking With White Liberal Talking Points

    Race politics. It’s the lifeblood of the modern Democrat Party.Look no farther than Ayanna Pressley for proof. The freshman Member of Congress thinks it’s her place to demand that all other minority leaders march in lockstep with her views. Yet, the truth is, she’s nothing more than a bully who parrots the talking points of rich, white liberals.Congresswoman Pressley made waves recently when she presumed to declare that “we don’t need brown faces that don’t want to be brown voices. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be black voices.”Pressley’s comments raise important questions about minority political representation that...

    Let's think about priorities. Say that you live in one of the dangerous high crime and poor schooling neighborhoods of cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, or St. Louis. Which is most important to you: doing something about public safety and raising the quality of education or, as most black politicians do, focusing energies upon President Donald Trump and who among the 20 presidential contenders will lead the Democratic Party? The average American has no inkling about the horrible conditions in which many blacks live. Moreover, they wouldn't begin to tolerate living under those conditions themselves. In Chicago, one person is...
  • Reparations for Slavery

    Several Democratic presidential hopefuls are calling for Americans to make reparations for slavery. On June 19, the House judiciary subcommittee on the constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties held a hearing. Its stated purpose was "to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice." Slavery was a gross violation of human rights. Justice demands that all participants in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade make compensatory reparation payments to slaves. However, there is no way that Europeans could have captured millions of Africans. That means...

    The is a lot of competition for the title, but Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Jihad) is making a strong case for herself as the most disgusting member of Congress. During the public testimony by Michael Cohen, she dehumanized a black woman who was sitting behind Rep. Mark meadows, calling her a “prop” – an infamy that denies the possibility of human agency to a black woman who disagrees with her. You see, in this worldview, black people are so stupid that they can’t come to their own political conclusions, and must be pawns of white people if they disagree with...

  • 'Delta Hill Riders': African-American cowboy culture in the Mississippi Delta

    06/16/2018 11:45:00 AM PDT · by BBell · 69 replies
    Rory Doyle’s ongoing personal project shares the story of African-American cowboy culture in the rural Mississippi Delta, challenging the Hollywood portrayal of the American cowboy. The work highlights the black cowboys and cowgirls in the Delta as a proud group existing beyond the movie image of the American West. The project began in early 2017 when Doyle attended a rodeo celebrating black cowboy heritage in the region. Over the past year, he’s documented this band of horse riders in a place not typically known for its cowboys. A recent article from Smithsonian magazine estimated that one in four cowboys was...

    Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval. A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trump’s approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent. It should be noted that Reuters only sampled slightly under 200 black males each week and slightly under 3,000 people overall. Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29. Black males were...

    It's often thought to be beyond question that black political power is necessary for economic power and enhanced socio-economic welfare. That's an idea that lends itself to testing and analysis.Between 1970 and 2012, the number of black elected officials rose from fewer than 1,500 to more than 10,000. Plus, a black man was elected to the presidency twice. Jason Riley, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, tells how this surge in political power has had little beneficial impact on the black community.In a PragerU video, "Blacks in Power Don't Empower Blacks," Riley says the conventional wisdom was based on the...

    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...

    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 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.
