    Two of the smartest and most insightful commentators today, both of whom happen to be black, have spoken words of great wisdom about the outrageous behavior of the Memphis cops who beat to death Tyre Nichols. Both men cite culture, though one, former Detroit police chief James Craig, points to the culture of the Memphis P.D. and the local culture of the "Scorpion" unit — one that deals with the worst street crime. The other, Jason Whitlock, points to the broader black culture.Speaking to Tucker Carlson, Chief Craig (who kept the peace in Detroit while Minneapolis and other cities were...

Tenon rented his home from Mario Fernandez, the new husband of Bridegan's ex-wife Shanna. The couple sold the house in October 2022 - eight months after the murder, and three months after Tenon was arrested...

    Olympic sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson posted a series of videos that she claims prove an American Airlines flight attendant harassed her. Still, the way her fellow passengers cheered during her removal from the flight seems to show few agreed with her complaints.The embattled Olympian posted her video to Instagram in which she immediately accused a flight attendant of “harassing” her when he walked by and simply let her know it was time to turn electronic items off because the plane was preparing to take off. “I’m recording me, but you jumped in my video, so I caught you because you jumped...

    LOS GATOS, CA -- In a move celebrated by casual viewers but criticized by longtime fans of C.S. Lewis's children's book series The Chronicles Of Narnia, Netflix has released marketing materials confirming that The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe will feature the first-ever black White Witch."We wanted a more sympathetic approach to the famously white villain, and believe us - you're going to love the changes in store for each of Lewis's most beloved characters, which reflect the world we live in today." Showrunner Matthew Alrich wrote in a series of Tweets announcing the move. "We hope that sassy...
  • A Florida bakery kicked out a Black man: But No, this isn’t some story about an old-fashioned, KKK-style racist.

    Gianno Caldwell is one of the bravest people in America. How do I know that? Because he’s an openly conservative Black man, a Fox news political analyst and political podcaster, an enemy of PC culture, and the author of a book advising Republicans how to bring disenchanted Black Democrats back to the Republican party. Those views saw him kicked out of a North Miami bakery. For those unfamiliar with Caldwell, who grew up on Chicago’s southside, once Barack Obama’s political stomping grounds, here’s the key paragraph from Caldwell’s website bio:Gianno’s first book, TAKEN FOR GRANTED: How Conservatism Can Win Back...

    Gianno Caldwell is a Fox News contributor, author and activist. Raised on the south side of Chicago, Caldwell often credits his upbringing with helping him to be resilient and driven. When his teenage brother was murdered by random gunfire on a Chicago street corner one Friday morning last summer, Caldwell became a passionate spokesperson for justice. In particular, Caldwell has railed against the lax crime policies of liberal legislators and prosecutors in cities across the nation. He even testified in front of Congress recently, as someone who has been directly affected by the unchecked violence plaguing American cities. Caldwell...

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics last week confirmed what everyday Americans who shopped over the holiday season already know: Historic inflation continues unabated, eroding Americans’ real wages and living standards. Overall inflation over the past 12 months — the calendar year of 2022 — increased by 6.5 percent, far exceeding average wage growth, and core inflation actually rose last month. Services prices grew at their fastest rate in 40 years. Yet you wouldn’t know it from President Biden’s celebratory remarks following the release of these numbers. Biden took credit for the slight moderation in topline inflation that remains more than...

    San Francisco’s reparations committee has proposed paying each Black longtime resident $5 million and granting total debt forgiveness due to the decades of "systematic repression" faced by the local Black community. The San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee, which advises the city on developing a plan for reparations for Black residents, released its draft report last month to address reparations – not for slavery, since California was not technically a slave state, but "to address the public policies explicitly created to subjugate Black people in San Francisco by upholding and expanding the intent and legacy of chattel slavery." "While...

    President Joe Biden on Sunday claimed he attended a black Church in Delaware every morning after he attended Catholic Mass in high school. “I may be a practicing Catholic, we used to go 7:30 am mass every morning in high school and college before I went to the black church,” he said. “Not a joke.” Biden spoke about his personal experience with the black church during a visit to the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day.

    The presence of police in schools actively jeopardizes the safety of Black students compared to their counterparts of other races, according to a report published this month. Black students were subjected to more than 80% of the incidents of police violence accounted for in the survey, which analyzed more than 285 incidents over a decade. At least 60% of police assaults on students resulted in serious injury to the students, including broken bones, concussions and hospitalizations. The report also cited 24 cases of sexual assault on students and five student deaths as a result of police force in schools. It...

    House Sergeant-at-Arms William Walker, who led the D.C. National Guard during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack, said law enforcement would have responded differently if the rioters had been Black. “I’m African American. Child of the Sixties. I think it would have been a vastly different response if those were African Americans trying to breach the Capitol,” Walker told the House Jan. 6 panel in April, according to a transcript released this week. “As a career law enforcement officer, part-time soldier, last five years full-time, but a law enforcement officer my entire career, the law enforcement response would have been...

    SHE TOOK THE LONG WAY HOME. A mischievous black bear was deemed so disruptive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park—stealing backpacks from hikers and nabbing food from picnic tables—that she was rehomed at a nature reserve in eastern Tennessee. But the bear decided she liked her previous home and its amenities just fine, and she made that known by trekking 1,000 miles through four states over six months, back to the national park. She was tracked near the picnic tables where she has been causing trouble in the first place. Read on to find out more about the bear's...

    It was once a symbol of hope. Haiti: the first black republic and first Caribbean state to declare independence. Now, it symbolises only death and despair. The poorest nation in the Western hemisphere, devastated by disasters both natural and man-made, plagued by disease, stalked by hunger, and now over-run by gangs. There has effectively been no government here since President Jovenel Moise was assassinated last year, a crime which continues to go unpunished. Into that power vacuum have moved hundreds of highly organised and extremely violent criminal groups which often have links to politicians and police - meaning they are...

    If Democrat lawmakers in New York have their way, the black ancestors of slaves will receive a sweet taxpayer-funded payoff. This comes on the heels of a California task force recommending $569 billion in reparations be allocated to every black person in that state who qualifies as the ancestor of a slave. That adds up to a Golden State payoff of $223,200 each. This is just another way for America’s shameless, leftist race hustlers to get their greedy hands on money earned by completely innocent, hard-working taxpayers. Naturally, flush off their victories in the midterms, New York Democrats are looking...

    Democratic consultant and political commentator James Carville said Monday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that in November’s midterm elections, early numbers are looking like black voter turnout was down. Carville said, “There is a potentially troubling sign, you have to wait until the analysts and these people get ahold of the final numbers of who turned out, but a lot of good ones think black turnout in Georgia is as low as it was since 2006.”

    Multimedia mogul Charlamagne Tha God offered a blunt assessment over whether President Biden has earned the Black vote if he seeks re-election in 2024: He hasn’t yet. In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, Charlamagne was asked to revisit his infamous 2020 “Breakfast Club” interview with then-presidential candidate Biden when he told them “you ain’t Black” if they were undecided between and President Trump. Biden later walked back the comments. “The only thing I took away from it was he was taking a page out of Trump’s book, and he was saying the quiet part out loud, you know?”...

    After indulging in a Thanksgiving feast, Americans are waking up and heading to the stores in search Black Friday bargains — but this year inflation is weighing on shoppers heavier than last night’s turkey. In Chesterfield, Missouri, on Thursday evening, there were no customers lined up behind the barricades set up outside the Best Buy in anticipation of lines for doorbuster deals. “I see nothing. I’m surprised,” Jeremy Pritchett told news station Fox2Now. “Normally, it’s wrapped all the way around the building, today no one.” Sky-high prices for food, rent, gasoline and other household costs have taken a toll on...
