    Did you know that November is Black Catholic History Month?This month, we’re honoring the men and women from Africa who have pioneered the faith! Many forget that Christianity didn’t start in Europe. Black Catholics have had a huge impact on the history and traditions of Christianity. The church has been celebrating Black Catholic History Month since 1990 when the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus of the United States instigated it. November seemed appropriate because it holds special days for two prominent African Catholics: St. Augustine whose birthday is on November 13, and St. Martin de Porres whose feast day...
  • Upward Mobility and Discrimination: Asians and African Americans

    Asians in America faced heavy discrimination and animus in the early twentieth century. Yet, after institutional restrictions were lifted in the late 1940s, Asian incomes quickly converged to white incomes. Why? In the politically incorrect paper of the year (ungated) Nathaniel Hilger argues that convergence was due to market forces subverting discrimination. ... Despite this intense discrimination, Asian (primarily Japanese and Chinese) incomes converged to white incomes as early as 1960 and certainly by 1980. One argument is that Asians invested so heavily in education that convergence has been overstated but Hilger shows that convergence occurred conditional on education. Similarly,...

    City Journal ^ | November 27, 2016 | By Heather McDonald
    Democratic pundits are calling on their party to court working-class and non-coastal whites in the wake of this month’s electoral rout. But the Democratic Party is now dominated by identity politics, which defines whites, particularly heterosexual males, as oppressors of every other population in the U.S. Why should the targets of such thinking embrace an ideology that scorns them? The most absurd Democratic meme to emerge from the party’s ballot-box defeat is the claim that it is Donald Trump, rather than Democrats, who engages in “aggressive, racialized discourse,” in the words of a Los Angeles Times op-ed. By contrast, President...

    Jamiel Shaw Sr. has been fighting the lonely battle against illegal immigration since 2008, when his 17-year-old son, Jamiel Shaw Jr., was gunned down in broad daylight by illegal alien gang members in the sanctuary city of Los Angeles. It was determined at trial that Jamiel Jr., who had no criminal record or ever any history with gangs, was targeted and killed due to the color of his skin. The elder Shaw helped create Jamiel’s Law, a proposed ordinance to deport known illegal alien gang members, and has testified before Congress multiple times on the matter. But after years of...

Authorities today announced state charges against 35-year-old Zachary Edwards and 34-year-old Raphel Dilligard, both of eastern Birmingham. They are charged with possession of a hoax destructive device, rendering false alarm and making terrorist threats, said Trussville police Capt. Jeff Bridges. The warrants were issued this morning after the week-long probe by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Trussville police, the Alabama State Fire Marshal's Office, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and...

    CNN political commentator Angela Rye called for reparations during a heated discussion with Donald Trump supporter Carl Higbie on air Tuesday afternoon. ... Higbie, a former Navy SEAL and conservative pundit, started by commenting on how New York City’s skyline represents Donald Trump’s accomplishments and how every other American wants to achieve the same thing. He added that the Democratic Party wants to keep Americans dependent on the government. Rye, the former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, became visibly angry at Higbie’s statement.

    On North Avenue, young black men with nothing to do wander past boarded-up buildings and dilapidated shops. It is a sad, desolate landscape. They and other African Americans in Milwaukee contributed to Hillary Clinton's crushing defeat in the presidential election: not only did they not vote for her, as had been expected, some even backed Donald Trump. Wisconsin's largest city is also America's most racially segregated one, according to a study based on the 2010 census. And Wisconsin served up one of the biggest surprises of an election day that shocked America and the world: no one thought the midwestern...

He has done more to protect the jobs and enhance the wages of black workers than anyone in either house of Congress over the last 10 years,” Kirsanow told Breitbart. Indeed, arguably no U.S. lawmaker has worked more tirelessly than Jeff Sessions to uphold the legacy of Civil Rights leader and late-Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Jordan–who, in arguing for immigration reductions, famously declared...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The hottest show on Broadway has won praise for its groundbreaking casting of black and Latino performers, but now, “Hamilton” may have run afoul of the strict New York City Human Rights Law. As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported, the controversy was sparked by a casting notice posted by the producers of “Hamilton,” which specifically seeks “non-white” performers. One critic said “Hamilton” takes a story that “valorizes dead white guys” and replaces it with black, Latino and multi-ethnic performers playing America’s founding fathers. But as the blockbuster musical looks to expand to other cities, the casting notice...

A man in the suburb north of Boston told police on Tuesday that he was accosted by two white men after getting off a Boston mass transit bus near Broadway Square in Malden. The complainant, who has remained unidentified, said the men used racial slurs and warned him he would soon be lynched because the U.S. is now “Trump country.” The man said he...

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trump’s victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...

Hundreds showed up to denounce the election of Trump–but despite media reports of a peaceful gathering, the crowd grew increasingly hostile and violent, according to Breitbart Texas sources on the ground. Students holding signs reading “End white supremacy” originally gathered on the steps of the Lee Circle monument before the demonstrations turned destructive.

  • AMAZING - Trump Performed Better Among Hispanics and Blacks than Mitt Romney Did in 2012!!!

    Here is the biggest story that the lying mainstream media is not telling you. Trump did better than Romney did among Hispanics in 2012. Exit polls that were reported by the left-wing British Guardian show that Trump received 29 percent of the Hispanic vote, compared to 27 percent for Romney. The story among blacks is equally amazing. Clinton is the first Democrat in decades to receive less than 90 percent of the black vote. Blacks voted 93 percent for Obama in 2012, and gave 6 percent of their vote to Romney. But blacks gave 88 percent of their vote to...

But here’s what Mr. Zogby sees as of Saturday night: “After serious doubts expressed among mainstream...

    Trump is gaining in Michigan partly because many African-American voters — especially younger voters who backed Sen. Bernie Saunders — distrust Clinton, said Wayne Bradley, state director of African-American engagement for the Michigan Republican Party. “There is a tremendous trust deficit with Hillary Clinton” because tough anti-crime laws established when her husband was president in the 1990s, he said. That distrust has helped cause a sharp drop in the number of absentee ballots mailed in from Detroit, even as other part of the state send in more ballots that before, Bradley said. Faced with a low turnout, the Clinton campaign...

It’s going to be especially close here in North Carolina,” Obama said. A moment later, he offered some explanation for the tightness: “The fact that he has gotten this far tells me the degree...

The aim is to increase the number of minorities working on tollway projects through a center teaching construction-related skills, officials said at a meeting Wednesday. The program is in the early stages, with diversity department planners still figuring out logistics, including funding. About $400,000 is allocated for 2017, although several tollway board directors advised staff members to budget for more. A 2015 tollway study concluded that blacks, Hispanics and women are underrepresented compared to whites when it...

The ceaseless – and to her supporters, baseless – investigations into her tenure as the country’s top diplomat. Clinton didn’t mention any of this during her speech to the black parishioners at a Baptist church here Sunday. But the theme of perseverance was threaded through the remarks she delivered two days after the FBI said it was examining additional emails related to her private email server. “Suffering produces endurance,” she said, quoting Romans 5:3. “And...

    A group founded earlier this year to help mobilize black turnout for the Nov. 8 elections has suspended operations, The Post has learned. Black Votes Matter PAC was created to address concerns about a drop-off in the black vote without President Obama, the first African-American elected to the White House, on the ballot. Black Votes Matter PAC founder Charlie King said the allies in Hillary Clinton’s camp made it known that a separate, third-party effort wasn’t needed to turn out the African-American vote. “We stopped pushing a couple of weeks ago. They didn’t think Black Votes Matters was needed to...

    The 40-million strong African American community deserved "new deal" to transform their communities, safety and economic prospects as well as the future of their children, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told a campaign rally in Charlotte, North Carolina. The city of Charlotte was the site of a mass-murder that shocked the United States last year when nine African Americans holding a Bible study in their church were shot dead. A young white racist Dylann Storm Roof is facing trial charged with the crime. "[It is time for] a new deal for black America," Trump said in on Wednesday. "I am...

    It's pretty clear, even Democrats know Hillary is bad news. Obama and Hillary have failed the black community and these people know it. Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmares are coming true. She is losing the high numbers of black voters as they are taking a second look at what she stands for and what she has promised and not delivered to the black community. Bruce Carter Hates Hillary Clinton (embedded video from WDC protest.) Bruce Carter who created Black Men For Bernie has decided Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party is not the future of the black community and as a...
  • Vanity: How is Trump's minority outreach coming along?

    I just watched Trump's latest rally in Newton, PA. He mentioned quite a few times tonight the black and hispanic communities and how bad things are for them under Democrat rule. I think it's great he is reaching out to them, but I believe he needs to do more than just mention them in his rallies. He needs to go into the inner cities. I know he went to Detroit back in early September, but he needs to do that again, not only in Detroit, but in Philly, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Cleveland and any other city in a battleground state....

    The greatest moral claim of the political left is that they are for the masses in general and the poor in particular. That is also their greatest fraud. It even fools many leftists themselves. One of the most recent efforts of the left is the spread of laws and policies that forbid employers from asking job applicants whether they have been arrested or imprisoned. This is said to be to help ex-cons get a job after they have served their time, and ex-cons are often either poor or black, or both. First of all, many of the left's policies to...

    Donald Trump’s ‘Make America great again’ slogan and this Republican Congress's actions raise unanswered questions Recently I appeared at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Penn., for a talk entitled “Making America As Good As Its Promise.” So you don’t confuse the theme of my talk with the slogan of a particular presidential campaign, let me delineate the difference. When I hear Donald Trump suggest that he wants to “make America great again,” it always triggers the same three questions in my head. One: How is Trump defining “greatness”? I’m not sure he and I share an understanding of what makes a...
