  • Black America’s Best Ally: Cops

    01/02/2015 4:43:14 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 11 replies ^ | Niger Innis
    Starting with the President of the United States, followed by his Attorney General, the establishment media, African-American members of Congress, and dozens of professional athletes, protest against the loss of black lives has become a cause celeb. To be sure, every death is a tragedy, and every crime – whether committed by a police officer or anyone else – should be prosecuted. But the simple truth is that sometimes police must act in self-defense to protect themselves. It appears that that may well have been what happened in Ferguson, Missouri. Many of the protesters in Ferguson took to the streets...

    And if it's war they want . . .So how do Democrats celebrate Martin Luther King Day this year? By attacking black people!Many of you are familiar with my friend Niger Innis, who is widely recognized as the voice of the Congress of Racial Equality and is currently running for Congress in Nevada’s Fourth Congressional District.Niger is one of those strange characters who drive liberals crazy – a black conservative. And to judge from their current assault on Niger and other black conservatives with whom he is associated – including me – it is clear that they believe the black...
  • Civil rights, Tea Party activist enters race against Horsford

    A black civil rights advocate and former Tea Party activist jumped into the Republican primary to take on Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.). Niger Innis, a spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality and former strategist for, launched his bid on Wednesday, pledging to “shake things up in this district." “We cannot afford go-along, get-along, soft, establishment Republicans or big-government, trickle-down Democrats,” he said, according to the Las Vegas Sun. “We must be willing to elect leaders who will advance private-sector innovation, entrepreneurialism and help liberate Main Street. Innis framed himself as a grassroots candidate and brought substantial local support...

    A conservative group which helped organize the famous March on Washington says it was left out of the seminal civil rights event's 50th anniversary celebration held Wednesday. The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was one of the six big organizing groups who coordinated the 1963 March on Washington 50 years ago. However, CORE says none of the event organizers at this year's remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech invited anyone from the black conservative organization, particularly CORE's chairman and '63 March on Washington alum Roy Innis (pictured), to speak.

  • Three Brilliant Black Leaders Tuning Out Obama

    Three brilliant black leaders are tuning out Obama and the black community needs to tune into these leaders. I’m surfing between the major news networks on a recent evening and I catch FOX News Channel’s Sean Hannity in the middle of an amazing interview with a guest named Harry Alford, the CEO and co-founder of the Black Chamber of Commerce. My jaw drops as Alford essentially calls Obama an anti-business tyrant who is hurting the African American community; he says he voted for Obama in 2008 but now has buyer’s remorse. I get to thinking: Given the choice between Alford...

    Colorado’s Ken Salazar is facing his first major backlash as Secretary of the Interior. A national civil rights group says Salazar is “going Hollywood on us” and caving into actor Robert Redford’s demands that American oil and gas leases in Utah be cancelled. He is also being accused of going counter to the spirit of economic stimulus by cancelling the leases. Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) says higher energy prices will result from the decision to scrap the leases of 77 parcels of land for oil and gas drilling in Utah’s Redrock country. The group believes low-income families feel the...

    A civil rights group says it is organizing protests against actor Robert Redford for what it says is his political role as the Grinch who is hurting low-income families by fighting oil and gas drilling in Utah. "If Robert Redford succeeds in blocking natural gas production in Utah, it's going to hurt a lot of people on the other end of the pipeline — especially low-income families who are struggling to pay their heating bills," said Niger Innis, national chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality. Innis said CORE and the High Impact Leadership Coalition are launching a "Don't Freeze...

    Otherwise eco-activists will keep the world’s poor impoverished, hungry, and disease-ridden. The litany of alleged offenses follows a script: fragile ecosystems, environmental devastation, irresponsible investment, huge profits, human rights violations, indigenous people imperiled. So do the demands: transparency, accountability, ethics, social responsibility. The tactics are equally familiar. Launch website, issue denunciations. Enlist grade school teachers whose students can write letters to the CEO. Harass the CEO at home. Stage protests at corporate offices. Claim to be stakeholders who must be given a role in all decisions, so that company policies henceforth reflect activist demands. Confrontational? Disingenuous? Of course. Effective? Absolutely....

    WASHINGTON -- California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown's nomination to the federal bench is sparking more political controversy, with a civil rights group announcing a television advertisement Wednesday calling on Sen.

The Congress of Racial Equality is airing the ad in Edwards' home state of North Carolina, where the Democratic Party is hoping for victory this year with Edwards on the ticket as the vice presidential hopeful.

    Who could possibly object to Earth Day, that benign occasion on which we are encouraged to throw away our pesticides, clean up our environment, and contemplate the damage we have done to Mother Earth? Niger Innis, for one. Mr. Innis is neither a shill for industry nor a raging neo-con. He is the spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, a leading African-American advocacy group, and last week he and other black activists got together to explain exactly what is wrong with Earth Day. "We must stop trying to protect our planet from every imaginable, exaggerated or imaginary risk. And...
