    Leaving the White House grounds recently, I knew I would encounter protestors. You could hear them throughout the evening, trying to disrupt. Most of the protestors were to the east and north of the White House, so staff directed us to exit out the west gate. A security guard offered to accompany me and my husband south to Constitution Avenue to meet our Uber driver, and we went safely home. We heard numerous stories the next morning of guests who had been threatened and endangered. One friend with whom we had walked out of that west gate actually decked a...
  • Donald Trump: I Did More for the Black Community in 3 Years than Joe Biden in 47 Years

    President Donald Trump compared himself to former Vice President Joe Biden, stating during his Republican National Convention speech that he has done more for black Americans than Biden has done in 47 years in elected office. Trump said: To bring prosperity to our forgotten inner cities, we worked hard to pass historic criminal justice reform, prison reform, opportunity zones, the longterm funding of historically black colleges and universities, and, before the China Virus came in, produced the best unemployment numbers for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans ever recorded. I have done more for the African American community than...

    If only Dr. Seuss were still with us, he could write a sequel to "Horton Hears a Who," entitled "Brian Hears a Whiff." On MSNBC this afternoon, Brian Williams, after claiming that the government always mentions co-morbidities when discussing COVID-19 deaths among black Americans, wondered: "Am I alone in hearing at least a whiff of victim-shaming?"[snip] So just as Horton the elephant could perceive the residents of Whoville on a tiny speck of dusk, so the exquisitely attuned Brian Williams can perceive racist victim-shaming that less sensitive souls might not see. Question: how does Williams manage to "hear" a "whiff?"...

    Here’s something you won’t read about in the US history books.The first legal slave owner in America was black and he owned white slaves. Anthony Johnson (BC 1600 – 1670) was an Angolan who achieved freedom in the early 17th century Colony of Virginia.Johnson was captured in his native Angola by an enemy tribe and sold to Arab (Muslim) slave traders. He was eventually sold as an indentured servant to a merchant working for the Virginia Company. Sometime after 1635, Antonio and Mary gained their freedom from indenture. Antonio changed his name to Anthony Johnson.In 1651 Anthony Johnson owned...

    With Cub, Target, two Aldi stores and many small markets damaged by rioting over the past week, Longfellow and about eight other neighborhoods have nearly become a food desert. “I consider the loss of these businesses devastating,” said Melanie Majors, executive director of the Longfellow Community Council. “Besides just the food, there’s a lack of retail for diapers, formula, household goods, even clothing.” Many residents of the area shop lower-priced stores such as Aldi or dollar stores. Two of those dollar stores — including Family Dollar on Lake Street — were destroyed in last week’s looting and violence that arose...

    Because black people are treated like criminals if they do the same. CNN has published a lengthy article suggesting that wearing face masks to guard against coronavirus is racist due to African-Americans not being able to wear them over fears they will be treated like criminals. Yes, really. Noting that the CDC has encouraged all Americans to wear face masks in the fight against COVID-19, Trevor Logan, an economics professor at Ohio State University, says he “will not be following this guidance.” “We have a lot of examples of the presumed criminality of black men in general,” Logan, who presumably...

    Although it was black voters in South Carolina who probably saved Biden’s bacon by giving him a much-needed bounce, it might be black voters who give Trump help in retaining the White House. In 2016, Trump was able to win the White House with only 8% of the black vote. Although that meant 92% of blacks who voted went for Hillary, the problem was with the number of blacks who stayed home: Of the black voters who turned out for Obama in 2012, 7% stayed home for Hillary in 2016. If Democrats are to have a prayer of retaking the White...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has strengthened his lead in the 2020 Democratic presidential race and surpassed former Vice President Joe Biden in support from African American voters, according to a new poll. The Reuters/Ipsos survey released Tuesday found Sanders's lead stretching into the double digits for the first time, with the senator holding an 11-point advantage in the race and a 3-point edge over Biden among black voters. Overall, 26 percent of surveyed Democrats and Independents said they would vote for Sanders, a self-identified democratic socialist, while Biden and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D) tied in a...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday he can win the presidency based on his support from African American voters but that he can not take the support "for granted." The Democratic presidential candidate said he has "overwhelming support" from the African American community, adding that he attributes the same "overwhelming support" from black voters to past Democratic presidential wins dating back to President Carter. "You can't win – you can't take it for granted. Last time we ran it was basically taken for granted," Biden said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I'm the only one who has the record...

    Democrat strategist James Carville warned that the smug, urbanist mindset is causing the Democratic Party to be distracted by the wrong issues. Democratic strategist James Carville unleashed on 2020 Democratic candidates for pulling the party too far left and warned Democrats are at risk of seeming “culturally arrogant” to the working class. His rant began on a viral MSNBC segment this week after the chaos of the Iowa caucuses, then he extended his admonishments in an interview with Vox.Vox Writer Sean Illing seemed to question whether Carville’s strong reaction was warranted. Are Democrats “really destroying the party?” he asked. “What...

    Perhaps for the first time in many years, politicians are directly competing for black votes. This goes hand-in-hand with signs that black America is no longer monolithically supporting Democrats. For example, President Donald TrumpÂ’s approval rating among black Americans is in the mid-30s.Enter Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, who just launched his new plan for black America, the Greenwood Initiative, named after a site of both incredible black achievement and pain.Bloomberg, speaking to a mostly white audience of only several hundred in Tulsa, Oklahoma, unveiled his planÂ’s three points. The plan is a perfect example of the failure of...

    In 2016, Donald Trump received a slightly higher share of the black vote than did Mitt Romney in 2012 or John McCain in 2008. But he still received just 8 percent.Now black support for Trump is in the mid-30s. While a 30 percent approval rating doesnÂ’t necessarily translate into a 30 percent vote-share from black Americans in 2020, 30 percent approval is significant. Even if black support for Trump were in the mid-teens on election day, that could swing states like Michigan, Florida, and even Minnesota solidly into TrumpÂ’s camp.Some of this increased black support is due to a...

    One poll could be an outlier, but when two resected polls find the same outcome, it’s time to realize that, most likely, something serious is going on. Rasmussen, whose own daily tracking poll revealed that 34% of black likely voters support President Trump, was initially cautious about interpreting that result, as this response to a tweet by Dineen Borelli shows:   So when Mrs. @deneenborelli - a friend & an engaged supporter of @realDonaldTrump today presents a snapshot of our privacy-focused daily likely voter results, please remember, not all survey samples & collection techniques are equal or comparable.

    Michelle Obama says she "can't make people not afraid of black people," but can "pick away at the scabs of discrimination" through her life's work. "As people doubted us coming through — 'Are you Princeton material? Can you really make the grade?' Can you cut it?' — what do you do in those instances? All you can do is put your head down and do the work and let the work, your truth, speak for itself," the former first lady said Tuesday at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.

    Donald Trump is no racist. I have known him since 1973 and have never seen any indication or any form of racism. In fact, quite the contrary. When I was Manhattan Borough president and president of the New York City Council, I asked him numerous times to help black or Hispanic groups, and he always came through, many times without publicity. When a hurricane ravished Puerto Rico in the mid 1980s, I asked many big companies to give various forms of assistance — but the problem was how to get all of this aid down to Puerto Rico. I called...
