    The biggest impediment to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, dream of a society in which color is not considered important is the continued used of the extremely racist term "African-American". The term implies the descendants of slaves are a separate race whose members belong in Africa rather than the United States even though many have ancestors who were living in North America long before the American Revolution. The term "African American" arbitrarily segregates people by skin color. The term treats people with dark complexions as if they only had African ancestors even if more of their ancestors came from somewhere...

    New York State Police continue to investigate the 1991 discovery of skeletal remains of an unidentified man in Niagara County 29 years ago. Police say on Saturday, June 22, 1991, at 5:04 p.m., two teens in the Town of Lewiston found the remains as they were picking berries in a wooded area off Black Nose Spring Road, located on the Tuscarora Indian Reservation. The body was found in an 11-foot ravine, about 30 feet from the road’s edge. Authorities tell News 4 the man was bound with a cord, and his mouth had been gagged with a washcloth. The manner...

  • Black Education Tragedy Is New

    Several years ago, Project Baltimore began an investigation of Baltimore's school system. What they found was an utter disgrace. In 19 of Baltimore's 39 high schools, out of 3,804 students, only 14 of them, or less than 1%, were proficient in math. In 13 of Baltimore's high schools, not a single student scored proficient in math. In five Baltimore City high schools, not a single student scored proficient in math or reading. Despite these academic deficiencies, about 70% of the students graduate and are conferred a high school diploma -- a fraudulent high school diploma. The Detroit Public Schools Community...

    The academic achievement gap between black and white students has proven resistant to most educational policy changes. Some say that educational expenditures explain the gap, but is that true? Look at educational per pupil expenditures: Baltimore city ranks fifth in the U.S. for per pupil spending at $15,793. The Detroit Public Schools Community District spends more per student than all but eight of the nation's 100 largest school districts, or $14,259. New York City spends $26,588 per pupil, and Washington, D.C., spends $21,974. There appears to be little relationship between educational expenditures and academic achievement. The Nation's Report Card for...

    I was a teenager, growing up in the Richard Allen housing project of North Philadelphia, when Emmett Till was lynched in Money, Mississippi, on Aug. 28, 1955, and his brutalized, unrecognizable body later recovered from the Tallahatchie River. From 1882-1968, 4,743 lynchings occurred in the United States. Roughly 73%, or 3,446, were black people, and 27%, or 1,297, were white people. Many whites were lynched because they were Republicans who supported their fellow black citizens and opposed the lawless act of lynching. Tuskegee University has the best documentation of lynching. It records an 1892 high of 69 whites and 161...
  • ‘What’s happening out there’ with Black men and Trump? (Washington Post worried)

    In the final presidential debate, President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden argued over who had been better for the Black community, in ways we’ve heard them do before. Trump attacked Biden’s support for tough on crime policies in the 1990s; Biden called Trump “one of the most racist presidents we’ve had in modern history.” At one point, Trump offered a retort that got at something that has been cause for no small amount of worry among Democrats and the Biden campaign in the last few weeks. “Tens of thousands of Black men, mostly, in jail. And you know what?...

    Source: Official White House Photo by Shealah CraigheadPresident Donald Trump just rolled out his new "Black Economic Empowerment Platinum Plan." The plan focuses on building on his achievements since 2016 to improve the lives of black Americans by creating more opportunity to participate in a growing economy and to achieve greater security in life and property. A poll by The Hill and HarrisX released almost a month ago, after the Republican convention, showed approval for Trump surging among blacks, to 24% -- triple the 8% he got in the 2016 election. A recent Washington Post/ABC poll and a recent Wall...
  • Why Black Leaders Are Demanding Planned Parenthood Publicly Disavow Its Founder

    The recent high-profile police shootings of unarmed black men and women have resulted in the largest civil rights demonstrations in history, demanding that law enforcement and civilians alike recognize that Black lives possess inherent dignity and worth. And nowhere is this demand for the full recognition of the value of Black lives more urgent than in the fight over abortion. Planned Parenthood was established with the goal of reducing the number of Black babies born in America so whites could maintain their dominant status. To this day, Black babies are killed by abortion far out of proportion to their share...

    Editor's Note: The following is an excerpt from Diamond and Silk's new book Uprising: Who the Hell Said You Can't Ditch and Switch?--The Awakening of Diamond and Silk.We often refer to the Democrat Party as the “Democrat Plantation.” Some think we are actually talking about a plantation. We’re not. We are talking about a mindset that keeps you restricted by beliefs that control you. The liberal Democrat Party has been pulling the wool over black Americans’ eyes and giving conflicting signals for decades. They say one thing and do another; they never uphold any of their promises. Democrats love keeping...

    Think about it: For decades we’ve spent trillions to implement anti-discrimination policies and poverty programs. America is home to the wealthiest group of blacks, likely, in all of history. Black mayors, black police chiefs, black law enforcers, black attorneys, black school officials and black politicians are stuffed into every crevice of city and state governments across the nation. A black man was elected to Earth’s most powerful office – twice! Yet somehow, the screech for “racial justice” is louder now than it was when black oppression was real. Race will always be a ticking time bomb as long as America...

So I tweeted the following list, pointedly telling everybody that these are the ones they extra-and-specially ought not to listen to, since they are unbought, unbossed, and insubordinate I would love it if you FReepers would share with us all your favorite Black Voices, yes, tell us who and why. I will keep tweeting them whenever I get a chance. List below

    Amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, riots, looting, and calls to defund the police, a Harvard economist has found that proactive policing saves black lives. “Defunding the police is not a solution and could cost thousands of black lives,” Roland Fryer told The College Fix in an interview about his latest research. “I think the streets are talking and we should listen. People are frustrated,” he continued in the email. He sympathizes with frustration at “big racial differences” in educational achievement, life expectancy and “almost every part of life.” The youngest African-American professor to receive tenure in Harvard history, Fryer...

    If you think that the war that Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other leftists are waging against white people is bad, you should see the war that those same groups are waging against black people who don’t toe the party line. They are viewed as race traitors. Three recent stories reveal the risks they run. In Chicago, Joyce Kenner, the principle of the prestigious Whitney Young Magnet High School, is under attack. The Dayton, Ohio, native remembers living through the riots in 1968, when James Earl Ray, a devotee of Democrat segregationists, murdered Martin Luther King. Her son, when...

    Media are perpetuating racism by falsely claiming color divides us into different races. Jesse Washington has reported that many dark skinned Americans recognize that they are not "African" Americans in spite of what some racists say. The term "African-American" perpetuates the principle tenet of Southern racism: "part black, all black" under the "one drop rule". Those who use the term are in effect segregating Americans with dark complexions from the rest of the population they may be related to. Those who use the term believe that those with dark complexions should only be able to claim their African ancestors and...

    Nestride Yumga is an American citizen who originally comes from Africa. She’s also an extraordinarily brave woman. On Sunday, after one of the worst nights of rioting in modern American history, Yumga, who lives in Washington, D.C., decided to see the protests/riots for herself. Contrary to what we’ve been told to expect from a black woman, though, Yumga did not go to support the protest. Instead, she wanted the Black Lives Matter crowd to know that she thinks they’re all a bunch of phonies and hypocrites. As Yumga sees it, they don’t care at all about black lives because they...

  • Puzzling Over African American COVID Deaths

    The numbers are preliminary, but it seems that African Americans are dying from COVID-19 at alarming rates. In Louisiana, for instance, blacks represent 70 percent of the dead but only 33 percent of the population. In Michigan, blacks comprise 33 percent of the infected, but 40 percent of the fatalities. This has occasioned an outpouring of analysis suggesting that racism is to blame. Racism and discrimination have unarguably left grave traces in the lives of African Americans, but the rush to identify racism as the cause of this particular disparity may be too pat. CNN, like many others, cited lower...

    CNN host Chris Cuomo recently complained about his job. "I don't like what I do," he said. It seems that Cuomo, out in public, gets some negative feedback: "I don't want some jackass, loser, fat-tire biker being able to pull over and get in my face and in my space and talk bulls--t to me. I don't want to hear it." Cuomo complained that as "a celebrity" he cannot "tell you to go to hell, to shut your mouth." Poor Cuomo; the stress of his reportedly $6 million a year gig must be unbearable. No doubt U.S. Surgeon General Jerome...
