    Philly Cops Blast Hillary Over Black Lives Matter & Co. July 25, 2016, Malcolm A. Kline The media and academia may regard them as a source of multicultural wisdom but local police have to look at what groups like Black Lives Matter actually do. “The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows, and other family members of Police Officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit, and not implied racism and ‘being on duty in blue,’” John J. McNesby, President of...

    News One for Black America ^ | July 24, 2016 | Nigel Roberts
    Most Americans believe there’s a lot at stake in the 2016 presidential election—but none more than Black women. According to a new poll reported in the Washington Post, nearly three-quarters of African-American women are “strongly” afraid of the consequences of their candidate losing the election. The Gallup poll found that 72 percent of Black women, who are by far Hillary Clinton supporters, fear a Donald Trump presidency. White women (at 56 percent) and Black men (at 55 percent) are a distant second and third, among those who strongly fear their candidate losing. What explains the high level of anxiety for...

    Hillary Clinton will issue a challenge to the Black Lives Matter movement at the Democratic National Convention next week by spotlighting the mothers of several African Americans who have been recently killed by police or gun violence. The Mothers of the Movement organization will be featured Tuesday at the convention at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, The Hill reports. The group first met with Clinton in November. The seven mothers include those of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, in 2012; Eric Garner, a New York man killed in 2014 by a...

Wade was arrested in College Park, Maryland this past April for sex trafficking—that is, pimping—a 17 year old girl in the motel where he was staying.

    As was recently shown, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, with its central claim that police around the country are hunting and killing innocent black men, is a lie. Yet the BLM myth is enmeshed within a larger narrative, a narrative of eternal White Racism. And couched within this tale are distortions and outright crucially false ideas of slavery. In the interest of that “honest discussion” of race that the Eric Holders and Barack Obamas of the world claim to want, I submit considerations without which no such discussion can be had.One glaringly inconvenient truth that, odds are, few folks...

    All eyes should be on Florida to see the seeds of change in black America. The issue is school choice and the nation's largest private school choice scholarship program, the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, enacted in Florida in 2001 under Gov. Jeb Bush. Students receive scholarships to attend the school of their choice from Scholarship Funding Organizations. The FSOs are funded through donations from businesses that receive tax credits on corporate taxes and insurance premium taxes. It sounds like a no-brainer that this makes all the sense in the world. It's all voluntary; businesses choose to contribute and freedom and...

    Black and white Americans have profoundly different views on racial equality, and a new survey finds they also differ on the extent to which a person’s race can be a burden or a benefit. For blacks, the answer is clear: 65% say “it is a lot more difficult to be black in this country than it is to be white.” Fewer than half as many whites (27%) agree. The racial gap in perceptions of white advantages is even starker: 62% of blacks say “white people benefit a great deal from advantages in society that black people do not have.” Just...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement three years ago, many white Americans have wrestled with how to respond. Some chose racist-tinged ridicule. Others, by word or deed, sought to show solidarity as blacks protested the deaths of fellow blacks in encounters with police. Still others, untouched personally, watched from a distance in silence. This past week, as graphic videos portrayed two more such deaths and five police officers were slain at a march in Dallas protesting the killings, whites have joined blacks in forceful calls for unity that cut across color lines.

    Podcaster and blogger Sonnie Johnson was having a pretty good time with this year’s BET Awards until Jesse Williams took the stage, as she told SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily.“He gives this speech, a Black Lives Matter speech, and I wrote a responding article on Breitbart.com, entitled ‘OK, Do You Want to Talk About Freedom Now?’” Johnson said. (The current title of the article was expanded to include both Johnson and Williams’ names; it may be read here.) As Johnson pointed out, Jesse Williams has “a white mother and a black father – and that...

    The Philadelphia-based grassroots campaign Black Men for Bernie said they will continue their work educating Black men on the social issues affecting their communities, even if Bernie Sanders does not gain the Democratic nomination, at a press conference on June 24. They also stressed that despite Hilary Clinton being the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, they do not support her or the party, as they are dissatisfied with both major political parties. Instead of voting Democrat for the general election, organizers called for a new class of political leaders, encouraged voters to abandon the two major political parties, and explore...

    Conservative evangelical bishop E.W. Jackson says that his "attitude" about Donald Trump changed as a result of Tuesday's meeting between Trump and hundreds of America's top evangelical leaders in New York City. Jackson, who is the founder of the conservative nonprofit S.T.A.N.D., said in a conference call during the meeting that he can now back the presumptive Republican nominee instead of just preferring him over presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "What I am hoping we will see is the evangelical community unify around Donald Trump because we just don't have any choice," Jackson said. "I hope that there will be...

    She commented on the March 9 shooting of five black people in the poor Pittsburgh suburb of Wilkinsburg.

They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They've grown up there. They know the police. They've been arrested." In the same post, she also praised a black restaurant worker in a...

    This is a continuation of the list of steps benevolent Republicans took to help the slaves held by Southern Democrats. On January 8, 1867 the Republican Congress had to override Democrat Andrew Johnson’s veto of a bill to give District of Columbia African-Americans the right to vote. The following July it had to override another Johnson veto of another Civil Rights bill designed to help African Americans. When the Republicans began an impeachment trial of Democrat President Johnson in March of 1868, his answer was, “This is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am...

    This is a continuation of the list of steps benevolent Republicans took to help the slaves held by Southern Democrats. On March 3, 1865 a Republican Congress established the Freedmen’s Bureau to provide health care, education and technical assistance to emancipated slaves. On April 8, 1865 the 13th Amendment, banning slavery, passed the Senate with 100% Republican support, but 63% Democrat opposition. In February 1866, Republican Congressman Thaddeus Stevens of Pennsylvania introduced legislation to give “40 acres and a mule” to male former slaves. Democrat President Andrew Johnson vetoed the measure. Overriding Democrat Andrew Johnson’s veto, Republicans passed the Civil...
