    If you come after Donald Trump, he’ll come right back at you — only twice as hard. That rule was confirmed in spades Friday when the Republican presidential nominee responded to Hillary Clinton’s claim that he’s a racist and white supremacist, and he used her own words to do it. He put together a video montage of the former secretary of state and posted it to his Facebook page under the heading, “The Clinton’s are the real predators…”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukTrbi5SmkQ The video ad centers on Clinton’s use of the term “super-predators” in 1993, the first year she served as first lady.

    The New York Post ^ | August 25, 2016 | John Lott
    Hillary Clinton claims that some of Donald Trump’s appeal is “xenophobic, racist, misogynistic.” On Thursday she asked, “If he doesn’t respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?” But who actually cares more about blacks, in particular poor blacks? On everything from education to jobs to crime, Trump’s policies offer a lifeline to people who have been losing ground for decades. Hillary’s policies will just exacerbate them. And no amount of speeches will change that. On education, Trump strongly supports school choice. This would give inner-city blacks a way out of horribly performing public schools. Clinton attacks charters and...

    GOP nominee Donald Trump is experiencing an eye-popping surge in support among black Americans in Florida – the biggest prize of all the battleground states – according to a new poll. Trump has attracted the backing of a full 20 percent of black Americans in Florida, a poll by Florida Atlantic University and the Economics Polling Initiative found. The survey, conducted Aug. 19-22 and released Wednesday, shows Democrat Hillary Clinton winning the support of 68 percent of Florida’s black voters. Trump took an overall lead in the state, 43 to 41 percent, within the poll’s 2.7 percent margin of error....

You, after all, are the same man who relentlessly questioned the citizenship of the nation’s first black President. That was before you dragged your feet and double-talked your way through questions — there’s that word again — about the support of white supremacist David Duke. And, if memory serves, you’re also the same presidential candidate who saw a black man at one of your campaign rallies and called him “my African-American.”...

Yesterday the Hill reported that Hillary Clinton would be giving a big speech Thursday aimed at the so-called alt-right: Clinton’s campaign announced Tuesday morning that her Reno, Nev., speech would focus on Trump and his aides’ “embrace of the disturbing ‘alt-right’ political philosophy.” “This ‘alt-right’ brand is embracing extremism and presenting a divisive and dystopian view of America which should concern all Americans, regardless of party,” her campaign said. I don’t know what Hillary will be saying tomorrow but one thing I’m pretty certain of is that attacking the alt-right isn’t going to...

    Early African-American intellectuals and cultural elites saw that the future of their race could not be advanced by endless protests or marches of “equality” or “justice.” It could only be done through the restoration of the trampled dignity of the black man. Great men like Marcus Garvey, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Malcolm X all knew that a people is only respected when it has a nation worthy of respect. A man who lives in a shack cannot expect to be treated with respect at a palace. They knew that for us to reclaim power we must first reclaim...

    In a wide-ranging interview on the racial climate in America, Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson brought up Planned Parenthood’s unscrupulous founding, saying the organization was created to “exterminate blacks.” Mr. Watson said black support for Planned Parenthood is “ironic,” given that the organization was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger in order to control “unfit” populations.

    A new website allows non-white people to ask for and receive “reparations” from white people, more often than not in the form of a financial windfall: free laptops, tuition for Ivy League schools, an engagement ring and credit assistance are a few examples of reparations requested, offered or already paid out on the site. Reparations.me, founded by a black woman named Natasha Marin, has a Craigslist-like layout where non-white people post their requests for reparations from white people. White people can fulfill requests as well as post their own offers of reparations.

    Natasha Marin is a Seattle artist who noticed a divide on her Facebook feed: her black friends were angry and frustrated about police shootings of black men, and her white friends were saying they wanted to help, but didn’t know what to do. “There is a discrepancy in the lives of people of color and white-identified people in the United States,” Marin said. Marin put together the Reparations site and accompanying Facebook event. It was a place where people of color could post needs and white people could help meet those needs.
