    Source: Official White House Photo by Shealah CraigheadPresident Donald Trump just rolled out his new "Black Economic Empowerment Platinum Plan." The plan focuses on building on his achievements since 2016 to improve the lives of black Americans by creating more opportunity to participate in a growing economy and to achieve greater security in life and property. A poll by The Hill and HarrisX released almost a month ago, after the Republican convention, showed approval for Trump surging among blacks, to 24% -- triple the 8% he got in the 2016 election. A recent Washington Post/ABC poll and a recent Wall...
  • Why Black Leaders Are Demanding Planned Parenthood Publicly Disavow Its Founder

    The recent high-profile police shootings of unarmed black men and women have resulted in the largest civil rights demonstrations in history, demanding that law enforcement and civilians alike recognize that Black lives possess inherent dignity and worth. And nowhere is this demand for the full recognition of the value of Black lives more urgent than in the fight over abortion. Planned Parenthood was established with the goal of reducing the number of Black babies born in America so whites could maintain their dominant status. To this day, Black babies are killed by abortion far out of proportion to their share...

    Editor's Note: The following is an excerpt from Diamond and Silk's new book Uprising: Who the Hell Said You Can't Ditch and Switch?--The Awakening of Diamond and Silk.We often refer to the Democrat Party as the “Democrat Plantation.” Some think we are actually talking about a plantation. We’re not. We are talking about a mindset that keeps you restricted by beliefs that control you. The liberal Democrat Party has been pulling the wool over black Americans’ eyes and giving conflicting signals for decades. They say one thing and do another; they never uphold any of their promises. Democrats love keeping...

Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who used profanity to describe President Donald Trump and call for his impeachment, at the Capitol in Washington, Friday, Jan. 4, 2019.(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) As the Joe Biden Vice Presidential Nominee Selection Process Express (tongue planted firmly in cheek) chugs slowly towards the finish line, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Friday guaranteed who Biden will finally tap as his running mate. Suspense killing you? Me, neither.That said, Mad Maxine “boldly” predicted… drumroll, please… that Joe will...

    Think about it: For decades we’ve spent trillions to implement anti-discrimination policies and poverty programs. America is home to the wealthiest group of blacks, likely, in all of history. Black mayors, black police chiefs, black law enforcers, black attorneys, black school officials and black politicians are stuffed into every crevice of city and state governments across the nation. A black man was elected to Earth’s most powerful office – twice! Yet somehow, the screech for “racial justice” is louder now than it was when black oppression was real. Race will always be a ticking time bomb as long as America...

So I tweeted the following list, pointedly telling everybody that these are the ones they extra-and-specially ought not to listen to, since they are unbought, unbossed, and insubordinate I would love it if you FReepers would share with us all your favorite Black Voices, yes, tell us who and why. I will keep tweeting them whenever I get a chance. List below

    Amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, riots, looting, and calls to defund the police, a Harvard economist has found that proactive policing saves black lives. “Defunding the police is not a solution and could cost thousands of black lives,” Roland Fryer told The College Fix in an interview about his latest research. “I think the streets are talking and we should listen. People are frustrated,” he continued in the email. He sympathizes with frustration at “big racial differences” in educational achievement, life expectancy and “almost every part of life.” The youngest African-American professor to receive tenure in Harvard history, Fryer...

    If you think that the war that Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other leftists are waging against white people is bad, you should see the war that those same groups are waging against black people who don’t toe the party line. They are viewed as race traitors. Three recent stories reveal the risks they run. In Chicago, Joyce Kenner, the principle of the prestigious Whitney Young Magnet High School, is under attack. The Dayton, Ohio, native remembers living through the riots in 1968, when James Earl Ray, a devotee of Democrat segregationists, murdered Martin Luther King. Her son, when...

    Media are perpetuating racism by falsely claiming color divides us into different races. Jesse Washington has reported that many dark skinned Americans recognize that they are not "African" Americans in spite of what some racists say. The 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...

    Nestride Yumga is an American citizen who originally comes from Africa. She’s also an extraordinarily brave woman. On Sunday, after one of the worst nights of rioting in modern American history, Yumga, who lives in Washington, D.C., decided to see the protests/riots for herself. Contrary to what we’ve been told to expect from a black woman, though, Yumga did not go to support the protest. Instead, she wanted the Black Lives Matter crowd to know that she thinks they’re all a bunch of phonies and hypocrites. As Yumga sees it, they don’t care at all about black lives because they...

    The numbers are preliminary, but it seems that African Americans are dying from COVID-19 at alarming rates. In Louisiana, for instance, blacks represent 70 percent of the dead but only 33 percent of the population. In Michigan, blacks comprise 33 percent of the infected, but 40 percent of the fatalities. This has occasioned an outpouring of analysis suggesting that racism is to blame. Racism and discrimination have unarguably left grave traces in the lives of African Americans, but the rush to identify racism as the cause of this particular disparity may be too pat. CNN, like many others, cited lower...

    CNN host Chris Cuomo recently complained about his job. "I don't like what I do," he said. It seems that Cuomo, out in public, gets some negative feedback: "I don't want some jackass, loser, fat-tire biker being able to pull over and get in my face and in my space and talk bulls--t to me. I don't want to hear it." Cuomo complained that as "a celebrity" he cannot "tell you to go to hell, to shut your mouth." Poor Cuomo; the stress of his reportedly $6 million a year gig must be unbearable. No doubt U.S. Surgeon General Jerome...

    A recent report by Chris Stewart has shed new light on some of the educational problems faced by black youth. The report is titled "The Secret Shame: How America's Most Progressive Cities Betray Their Commitment to Educational Opportunity for All." Stewart is a self-described liberal and CEO of Brightbeam, a nonprofit network of education activists who want to hold progressive political leaders accountable. The report asks, "So how do we explain outstandingly poor educational results for minority children in San Francisco -- which also happens to be one of the wealthiest cities in the country?" "The Secret Shame" reports that...

    Editor's note: This column was authored by Satya Marar.  After sweeping victories this week and on Super Tuesday, it’s becoming inevitable that Joe Biden will score the Democrat presidential nomination. And he’ll owe it in no small part to African American voters who’ve helped spearhead his campaign’s resurgence. He knows it, too. “There’s only one reason I’ve come back,” he told the congregation at New Hope Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi on Sunday. “The African American community all around the country.” But setbacks like his racially insensitive gaffes mean that this support can’t be taken for granted — especially if he’s to eventually...

    Black voters voting behavior is a perplexing dynamic. Their unwavering support of Democrat politicians and the liberal agenda that creates an illusion of caring about their plight of living life at the bottom is stunning. But this didn’t happen overnight. It’s been decades of head in the sand mentality that has cost black voters dearly. Recall former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, who rose to a leadership position as a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That reality didn’t stop former President Obama, who had said upon learning of Byrd’s passing that the Senate...

    I never thought, in all my years of serving the most underserved black people on the planet, that I would be called an “Uncle Tom.” However, that is exactly what happened to me and other community leaders and patriots last week after we attended a Black History Month event hosted by President Trump at the White House.We were gathered to celebrate the historic achievements that President Trump has secured for black Americans. From resurrecting American inner cities with Opportunity Zones to record-low unemployment, rising wages, criminal justice reform, record-high funding for HBCUs, and fighting for school choice, President Trump has...

    The disproportionate number of African American special guests hosted by President Donald Trump at the State of the Union address made clear how very serious he is about courting the support of this community. The question, of course, is whether meaningful change in how African Americans vote is possible or is just wishful thinking by Republicans. Since 1964, Democrats have picked up an average of 90% of the black vote in every presidential election, and Republicans have picked up an average of 10%. Have the Democrats served the black community so well that they deserve such disproportionate support? I...

    The Donald Trump White House put out a photograph of the president's task force on the coronavirus. CNN promptly showed its displeasure, not with the task force's effort but with its racial composition. There was insufficient "diversity" in the photo. In a piece called "Coronavirus Task Force Another Example of Trump Administration's Lack of Diversity," CNN national political writer Brandon Tensley wrote: "Who are these experts? They're largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who've dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning. "By contrast, former President Barack Obama's circle of advisers...
