  • Hillary Clinton Says Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Will Bring Back Slavery

    On Friday morning, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, would bring back slavery if he is confirmed to the nation's highest court. "Let me say a word about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court," Clinton told the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) at its national convention. "This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights — including those to make our own health decisions." "It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of...
  • The U.S.' Colorblind Jobs Boom Under Trump Continues

    07/12/2018 1:43:15 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 10 replies
    'Inclusive' Boom: It may be a surprise, but President Trump is nowhere near as unpopular among minority voters as the biased mainstream media suggest. Why is that? In a word, jobs. Trump, it turns out, has been the most consequential president in history when it comes to minority employment. In June, for instance, the unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos 16 years and older fell to 4.6%, its lowest level ever, from 4.9% in May. The previous all-time low was 4.8%. African-American unemployment bounced up from its all-time low of 5.9% in May to 6.5% in June. But that 6.5%...

    President Donald Trump, more than any modern president, freely expresses his racist views — whether it is calling Mexican immigrants rapists, asserting that immigrants “infest” America, saying neo-Nazis include some “very fine people,” preferring Norwegian immigrants to those from “sh--hole” countries or associating immigrants with crime in public and in private. (In May, The Post reported on an episode in April 2017: “Trump reminded them the crowds loved his rhetoric on immigrants along the campaign trail. Acting as if he were at a rally, he recited a few made-up Hispanic names and described potential crimes they could have committed, such...

    During a lecture at the Library of Conservatism in Germany, British philosopher Sir Roger Scruton described conservatism as a philosophy that recognizes and acknowledges that good things are easily destroyed but not easily created, such as law, peace, freedom, civility, the security of property and family life. He contends we depend on the cooperation of others for the aforementioned to exist because we have no means or ability to single handedly attain it. He states “the work of destruction is quick, easy and exhilarating.” “The work of creation is slow, laborious and dull.” For the African American, the journey from...
  • Black Activists Applaud End to Race-Based College Admissions Ahead of SCOTUS Nomination

    Black activists are praising the Department of Justice’s announcement on Tuesday that the Obama-era, race-based college admission guidance to further advance affirmation action law would end. “In the 21st century, we shouldn’t be making race a basis for who gets into school and who doesn’t,” Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a former professor of constitutional law at George Mason University and senior counsel to congressional leadership, said in statements from Project 21 members distributed to the media. “The Supreme Court has never held that affirmative action in admissions should be a generic remediation tool for all past racial injustice,” Cooper...

    Ann Mongoven knows her Highland Park neighborhood is gaining population at a steady clip. Despite that, she opposes any proposal to add more police officers in St. Paul. “That doesn’t make any sense to me,” said Mongoven, an active member of the St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Minneapolis, after a long pause and an incredulous look. “I live in Highland and we are going to be welcoming new people. … We can do that neighbor-to-neighbor. We don’t need the police to get to know our neighbors.” On Monday, 14 members of the faith-based social justice coalition Isaiah gathered...

    LOS ANGELES – A coalition of religious leaders and black pastors in Los Angeles will hold a press conference at 3 p.m. on Monday, July 2, 2018 in front of the office of Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), located at 10124 South Broadway in Los Angeles. The coalition (Pastors in Soladarity) is being organized by Pastor Shane B. Scott, who is a senior pastor at the Macedonia Baptist Church. At the press conference, the pastors will show support for Congresswoman Waters, who has received criticism from the White House as well as death threats for her call to publically confront White...

    Could a gay hairdresser from New York City set off a mass exodus from the Democratic Party? A hashtag and a growing wave (not a blue one) of videos on YouTube and Facebook signal that the Democrats finally have gotten too crazy for at least some of their formerly faithful supporters. Celina Farber of the Epoch Times catalogues a growing wave of revolt against Democrats’ embrace of socialism and no borders and general insanity under the rubric of #Walkaway: Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a...

    A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay ripped President Donald Trump in a Wednesday tweet in response to the president’s taunting of Democrat firebrand Maxine Waters. DuVernay jumped to Twitter to call Trump a “mistake of history.” “You have no sense of self outside of the disparagement of others,” DuVernay tweeted. “You project your weakness onto others. You are of no substance. You will go down in history as a mistake. A mistake that unified many, reminding us of the best in ourselves by being a violent example of the worst.”(continued)

    U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, has cancelled a planned trip to Birmingham due to security concerns. She was scheduled to speak Friday at an annual conference for black female politicians, local officials and community leaders. Waters was supposed to address an audience of black women for the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative (NOBEL) Women's Annual Legislative Conference, which starts today and ends Sunday. But NOBEL President Karen Camper, a state representative from Tennessee, confirmed that Waters was no longer coming because of security reasons. Details about the safety concerns have not been released and it's not known if a...

    The Congressional Black Caucus is rallying behind Rep. Maxine Waters amid an escalating feud over the California Democrat’s call for protesters to confront administration officials wherever they go, while some Republicans are demanding Waters’s resignation.. In a statement Tuesday, CBC chairman Cedric L. Richmond (D-La.) issued a statement defending the 14-term lawmaker as someone who “has been a champion for justice her entire life.” He also pushed back against statements by President Trump and others who have cast Waters’s remarks at a Los Angeles rally Saturday as inciting violence. “In exercising her constitutional right to freedom of speech at a...

    We’ve seen Rep. Elijah Cummings in full emotional outcry before this. He was there, in the streets of his West Baltimore home district, in the televised riots that followed the death of Freddie Grey a few years ago, when tears ran down Cummings’ face and he begged America to understand the plight of young and impoverished black men. And now we see him pleading for some sense of humanity over the lives of young immigrant children, frightened and weeping, separated from their parents over America’s “zero tolerance” at the U.S. border. Cummings is man whose conscience is always on full...

    From time to time, the media tell the truth about issues that have a racial edge, usually by accident.  Such was the case in February of this year, when a local TV news crew visited a largely black St. Louis neighborhood to follow up on a hit-and-run incident. A speeding car had struck two ten-year-old boys and kept on going.  Local people were outraged.  School principal Stella Erondu told the reporter, "It's just like the wild, wild west.  Anyone can do whatever, drive however they want on these streets."  Other neighbors echoed her comments. The reporter on the scene had no reason to doubt the neighbors.  While he...

    I've lived long enough to witness the racist pre-Civil Rights negro-controlling techniques evolving into the self-perpetuating genocidal black machine we have today. What the Klan, Jim Crow, segregation, and every other racist policy couldn't accomplish has been accomplished beyond the expectations of the American Eugenics Society because of a singular unalterable fact. The society that perverts the family structure of man, woman, and child cannot stand, because every society that abandons the truth of God will eventually collapse. Once that foundation has eroded, the society will crumble under the sheer weight of its own depravity. But many will say, "Wait...

    The Daily Dose of Reason ^ | June 14, 2018 | Dr. Michael J Hurd
    President Trump repeatedly points out that black unemployment is at its lowest point ever. His premise is that more black persons with jobs is a good thing. If you’re rational, you’ll agree. But if you’re a Democratic politician, your job — and sense of moral superiority — depends on blacks remaining unemployed. Because if they’re unemployed, it means they’re more dependent on government health care, government welfare, food stamps, and all the rest. Ditto for other minorities. Democratic leftist politicians want black people on the plantation. Not literally, because there are no plantations. The modern plantation is the government dependence...

    Ever since Trayvon Martin’s tragic death, his parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, have been fighting to make sure other families don’t have to experience the same pain as they did. Due to their heavy involvement in gun reform and social justice, Fulton and Martin will reportedly be honored at VH1’s 2018 Trailblazer Honors. Trayvon Martin’s death pushed his parents to the forefront and they have been active in speaking out against gun violence, racial and social injustice and sharing the pain of having to bury a child. In 2012, they founded the Trayvon Martin Foundation to provide advocacy for...

    When Maxine Waters, the Democratic representative from southern Los Angeles, toured Silicon Valley during the first week of May with fellow members of the Congressional Black Caucus, she was blunt about the technology industry’s lack of progress hiring black employees. Waters, standing at a lectern in front of a wall of windows at Lyft’s offices in San Francisco, said she was “floored” to learn that black workers make up 1 or 2 percent of the workforce at several prominent tech companie

    It's respect not condensation. I think blacks understand that. A 'nation of cowards' will always look to appease the aggrieved party. Trump had nothing to do with the black condition and doesn't bother to say so. Just look at the jobs he's creating and some of the pardons. By upsetting the status quo internationally I'm sure all observers can see things will change domestically. The wall will help blacks without having to say it. They know. Standing up to the NFL will be respected. You don't kill the goose that lays the golden egg as many blacks are wondering. I...
