    U.S. senate elect Doug Jones won big with the African American vote. According to the Washington post Jones got 96% of the African American vote. 93% of the men voted for him. African American women led the vote at 98% DeJuana Thompson helped organize a program called "Woke Vote." Organizers targeted hundreds of African American churches, businesses and college students at HBCUs (Historically Black College & Universities) statewide. "We're talking about making sure that every HBCU had a campus coordinator," Thompson said. "We gave them buttons T-shirt's some of the students did a study Jam for 'Woke Vote' and they...
  • When Illegal Immigrants Vote, It Cancels Out the Vote of a Genuine Law-Abiding American Citizen

    12/06/2017 7:39:29 AM PST · by pinochet · 25 replies
    The Republican Party has been falsely accused of disenfranchising blacks by requiring voter ID in order to vote. Voter ID limits the ability of illegal immigrants to vote. When an illegal immigrant votes, the vote of an American citizen who is eligible to vote is cancelled out. We have a problem in which illegal immigrants are voting illegally, which weakens the political power of black Americans. An experienced lawyer told me that people who come to America illegally, are not supposed to get green cards and American citizenship, unless they go back to their home countries. They should then go...

    The Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter is calling for people to resist “white capitalism” and President Trump by only buying from black businesses during the holiday season. On Sunday, the allegedly official Black Lives Matter-LA Twitter account posted that they are “dreaming of a #BlackXmas” that involves people withholding their “dollars from White capitalism” and, instead, spending that money in the black community: We’re dreaming of a #BlackXmas...where folks withhold dollars from White capitalism and use resources to #BuildBlackCommunity. Instead of spending, DONATE to a Black organization as a holiday gift for your loved ones or #BuyBlack. Go...

    Republican Judge Roy Moore regained his lead over ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama senate race this week after weeks of liberal media attacks and allegations from 38 years ago. Roy Moore leads the race by 6 points in Alabama. And so it should come as no surprise that Democrats are urging out of state voters to cheat for them. Democrat activists are calling on black voters in Mississippi, Georgia and South Carolina to travel to Alabama to vote for the far left candidate Doug Jones. Via Big League Politics: Democratic activists are making a last-minute push to get...

    An Indiana University Health nurse is under fire for racist tweets about killing white babies. Online Redditors and Twitter users tracked nurse Taiyesha Baker to Riley Children's Health, an affiliate of Indiana University Health in Indianapolis. PJ Media reached out to the hospital and received this statement: We are aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access...

    Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones's surging campaign is in danger of falling short in its must-reach goal of energizing African-American voters, the Washington Post reported. "As of this day, I would say no," retired UPS worker Donald Williams told the Post about enthusiasm among black voters. "And this is Doug Jones's problem. He's got to get out and get the voters energized." Amid a string of sexual misconduct allegations that've rocked the campaign of GOP candidate Roy Moore, the Jones camp believes he could pull off an unlikely victory if he can mobilize African-American voters, who make up about a...

    On this Thanksgiving, I would like to address an open letter to the multimillionaire National Football League players who continue to take a knee when “The Star-Spangled Banner” is played. Dear kneeling brothers, As a proud Army veteran, mom and black American, I thank God that I live in the greatest nation on Earth. For me, Thanksgiving doesn’t just come once a year. I’m thankful 365 days a year. I recommend you take the same attitude, to appreciate the many blessings you enjoy.

    This is something that fell on the backburner, but a bit interesting. A poll showed that a significant amount of white southerners feel they’re under attack. I can see how. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, but the fact remains that Confederate statues, the flag, etc. are all cornerstones of southern culture. It’s part of American history as well. Not one of our best moments, but a part of it nonetheless. Here’s the breakdown of the survey (via The Hill): Nearly half of white American poll respondents living in the South feel like they’re under attack, a new Winthrop...

    It was the thick of Black History Month and I worked as an art administrator for a program in Baltimore City. The site I was assigned to was managed by a white woman who cloaked her racism with a bright smile and photos on Facebook with Black students that garnered “ooo’s” and “ahh’s” from the white liberal peanut gallery in the comment section. I once told her that since we celebrated Latinx Heritage Month, that we should celebrate Black History Month with our students. Her response, dripping with anti-Blackness, was that celebrating Black History Month would be “too overwhelming”. I...

    LaVar Ball, patriarch of the famed basketball family, has denied that President Donald Trump helped his son, UCLA freshman basketballer LiAngelo Ball, get out of potential shoplifting charges in China. Speaking to ESPN, LaVar Ball said “everyone” wanted to make it seem like Trump helped the family, and noted that people try to “make a big deal out of nothing.” Ball’s basketball family has a reality show, Ball in the Family, that airs on Facebook, and his brash style is regularly parodied by Kenan Thompson on Saturday Night Live. The family includes Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball; UCLA...

    “Can my children be friends with white people?” This bizarre question is the basis of a New York Times op-ed published Sunday, and the author answers it with a “no,” albeit with some exceptions. “History has provided little reason for people of color to trust white people in this way [of genuine friendship], and these recent months have put in the starkest relief the contempt with which the country measures the value of racial minorities,” writes Ekow N. Yankah, a law professor at Yeshiva University. According to Yankah, examples of white “contempt” for racial minorities in recent months include concerns...

    Two 20-year-old college juniors, who have been best friends since middle school, are believed to have become the youngest black Republicans to ever be elected to public office in Connecticut. Ed Ford Jr. and Tyrell Brown both become passionate about politics at a young age, and served as president and vice-president of student government during their senior year of high school. In Tuesday’s elections, they each won a seat in public office, with Ford winning a spot on the Middletown school board, where he attended school, and Brown being elected to the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission, WTNH News8 reports....

    “We like to say that the real black is the black on the street corner doing drugs, selling drugs and shooting each other,” Steele said. “We don’t question their blackness, but we question the blackness of those who climb out of those situations, who join the American mainstream, who become successful.” Modern liberalism, he continued, rewards failure and breeds bad faith in people and in America. The more inferior a black person is, he said, the more “black” that person is considered. This cultural dynamic encourages a sense of helplessness, and the helpless like to be surrounded by others who...

    The Root ^ | August 22, 2017 | Crystal Marie Fleming, Ph.D.
    This weekend I had the misfortune to read Roxane Gay’s recent New York Times op-ed, in which she reflects on Charlottesville, Va., and waxes poetic about how much she wishes Hillary Clinton had won. She writes: I keep thinking about how different things would be if Hillary Clinton had been elected president. I was, like so many of us, wildly overconfident about her chances. Her presidency was a certainty in my mind and in my heart. And then, it wasn’t. Instead, it is 2017 and white supremacists no longer feel the need to wear hoods to hide their racism and...

    Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile said she’s frustrated by the reaction of Hillary Clinton’s campaign staffers who have criticized her opinions on what the Clinton campaign got wrong in the 2016 election. Brazile said on ABC’s “This Week” the Clinton campaign hamstrung the party during the election by basically taking over the Democratic National Convention. She said the 100-plus staffers who criticized her remarks in her new book don’t get how they hurt the party. “Here's what they don't know. What it was like to be over at the DNC during the hacking. What it's like to bury...

    Leonard itemized ten different themes of Trump in this speech. To my ears, it’s extremely easy to see the winning formula they represent, for they clearly set down lines of demarcation that have strong appeal in a primarily center-right nation: 1) We’re sustained by the power of prayer versus Democrats who want prayer out of the public sphere. 2) Mass murder event caused by an act of pure evil versus Democrats who blame guns and want to take them away. 3) Honoring first responders versus elevating thugs and viewing our protectors in blue with disdain. 4) Quoting scripture versus Democrats...

    DETROIT — As the sun shined on Detroit on Saturday, the halls and conference rooms of the city’s Cobo Center convention hall were packed with a diverse array of women. Many had come from across the country to answer a key question that’s been burning for nearly a year now: What’s next? The inaugural Women’s Convention marked the first major follow-up to January’s Women’s March. That nationwide event, which took place in the wake of Donald Trump’s inauguration, saw millions of women take to the streets of cities across the country to take direct action, assert their rights and make...

    Congressional Democrats celebrated Rep. Frederica Wilson on Wednesday by wearing stickers adorned with a red cowboy hat and posing for a group picture on the steps of the Capitol. But one notable person was missing: Wilson herself. A source close to Wilson confirmed that the Florida Democrat was not in Washington this week due to ongoing threats against her after she criticized President Donald Trump's handling of a conversation with the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed during an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger. Congressional vote tallies show that Wilson last voted Oct. 12, before the House...

    One simple statistic highlights the folly of much of the Democratic Party’s strategy and spending. If every person of color who voted for Hillary Clinton in Virginia last year turns out to vote in Virginia’s gubernatorial contest on November 7, Democrat Ralph Northam could win without getting a single vote from a white person. Not one. And yet most Democratic strategists and donors overlook and undervalue voters of color in general and African-American voters in particular. As a result, Democrats are at real risk of losing eminently winnable contests in Virginia this year, as well as in myriad races in...
