    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has caused a firestorm of controversy since he decided he wouldn’t stand for the national anthem because, he believes, America “oppresses” black people. But perhaps the most biting condemnation of his actions came Monday from former Superbowl champion Burgess Owens when he spoke to “Fox & Friends.”

    Donald Trump's recent overtures to African-Americans has been met with skepticism by many voters. (snip) Even though many voters are suspect of his comments, some African-Americans welcome his words and are supporting his presidential candidacy. "It is time to wake up, African Americans -- wake up," Trump supporter Carl Nichols, who is African-American, told ABC News at the rally in Fredericksburg Saturday. "Life in Detroit, where I am from, looks like a warzone, because of the Democrats who have been there for 50 years. It's a big mess. Let's give the man a chance. You have tried out Obama, but...

    Despite claims of racism, Freddie Gray hoax was fought in a mostly black city between black officials. Even half the police officers charged in the case were black. The Freddie Gray case came down not to black or white, but to telling the truth Judge Barry G. Williams once again handed the Freddie Gray lynch mob a decisive defeat, shredding the prosecution’s case against Lt. Brian Rice, the highest ranking police officer targeted by the mob. Judge Williams stated firmly that, the court “cannot be swayed by sympathy, prejudice or public opinion.” Instead he insisted that it had to follow...

    White teenage unemployment is about 14 percent. That for black teenagers is about 30 percent. The labor force participation rate for white teens is 37 percent, and that for black teens is 25 percent. Many years ago, in 1948, the figures were exactly the opposite. The unemployment rate of black 16-year-old and 17-year-old males was 9.4 percent, while that of whites was 10.2 percent. Up until the late 1950s, black teens, as well as black adults, were more active in the labor market than their white counterparts.

We’ve long understood the primary reason, too: A higher proportion of black and Hispanic children come from poor families. A new analysis of reading and math test score data from across the country confirms just how much socioeconomic conditions matter. Children in the school districts with the highest concentrations of poverty score an average of more than four grade levels below children in the richest districts. Even more sobering, the analysis shows that the largest gaps between white...

    Two Franciscana dolphins were ripped from the waves near an Argentinan resort last week, then manhandled to shore, where they were passed around a clutching mob seeking cute selfie moments.

Witnesses inside the ballroom hosting the ceremony saw two other men in the crowd, including one disguised as a woman, running away holding handguns. It wasn't clear whether they opened fire, were working as scouts for the other gunmen,...
