    When Michigan and Pennsylvania certified their election results this week, they proved that our democratic processes are resilient, capable of withstanding the onslaught of lawsuits and other measures by President Trump and his legal team to toss out votes. But voting rights advocates and activists still worry that even if the president's efforts to undermine the vote in predominantly Black communities didn't succeed, they could still have a negative long-term impact. The Trump team's questioning of the legitimacy of the votes in cities like Detroit, Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Atlanta without presenting any evidence in court of large-scale illegal voting "really...

    On The Kyle Olson Show, Trump campaign national press secretary Hogan Gidley blasted recent comments Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel made accusing the campaign of racism. Nessel went after the campaign over its lawsuit seeking to block certification of results in Detroit and Wayne County. “Really the themes that we see, that persist, are this: Black people are corrupt, Black people are incompetent, and Black people can’t be trusted. That’s the narrative that is continually espoused by the Trump campaign and their allies in these lawsuits,” Nessel said on Wednesday. “That’s offensive and ridiculous on every single level,” Gidley responded....

    In late August, during the second week of school in Burlington, Wisconsin, Melissa Statz heard children in her fourth grade class talking about Kenosha. A couple of students had seen burned and boarded-up buildings in the nearby city, but they didn’t know the details of the protests that filled the streets after a police officer shot Jacob Blake, a Black man, in the back on Aug. 23. One student asked Statz, 30, if she knew what was going on in Kenosha, which is a half-hour drive from Burlington, a town of 11,000 that is 89 percent white. Statz thought this...

    Meridian, Miss. - The old civil rights worker was sure the struggle would be over by now. He’d fought so hard back in the ’60s. He’d seen the wreckage of burned churches, and the injuries of people who had been beaten. He’d seen men in white hoods. At its worst, he’d mourned three young men who were fighting for Black Mississippians to gain the right to vote, and who were kidnapped and executed on a country road just north of here. But Charles Johnson, sitting inside the neat brick church in Meridian where he’s been pastor for over 60 years,...

    In unguarded moments with senior aides, President Trump has maintained that Black Americans have mainly themselves to blame in their struggle for equality, hindered more by lack of initiative than societal impediments, according to current and former U.S. officials. After phone calls with Jewish lawmakers, Trump has muttered that Jews “are only in it for themselves” and “stick together” in an ethnic allegiance that exceeds other loyalties, officials said. Trump’s private musings about Hispanics match the vitriol he has displayed in public, and his antipathy to Africa is so ingrained that when first lady Melania Trump planned a 2018 trip...

A Joe Biden terrified by his puppet masters that the African-American vote is slipping away from the party of pandering made that absurd claim during a rare day trip from his basement bunker to Kenosha, Wisconsin. At least his handlers were able to find and lead him to Wisconsin which Hillary Clinton failed to do in 2016.

    Former President Barack Obama once again pulled out the race card for political gain, consequences be damned. This time at the funeral of civil rights icon John Lewis, Obama compared President Donald Trump to not one but two racial segregationists, former Birmingham, Alabama, Commissioner of Public Safety Bull Connor and former Alabama Gov. George Wallace. The inconvenient truth that Connor and Wallace were Democrats is, apparently, of no relevance to Obama, his fellow Democrats or most of the media. About Connor, Obama said, "Bull Connor may be gone, but today we witness, with our own eyes, police officers kneeling on...

    “And I say … segregation today … segregation tomorrow … segregation forever.” Fifty-seven years ago, the newly sworn-in Democrat governor of Alabama, George Wallace, delivered those words in his inaugural address. In other words: George Wallace, who was a product of a political party that built its political power by supporting every imaginable policy that divided Americans by race, was at it again. Using the momentary pulpit that was a governor’s inaugural to play the race card — again. Yesterday there was a new George Wallace. He appeared in an Atlanta church to eulogize the late Democratic Congressman John Lewis,...

    The death of Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis, coming as it has amidst urban riots in Democrat-run cities following the murder of George Floyd by a deranged cop in a Democrat-run city offer the Democrats another opportunity for a Paul Wellstone-type funeral, a somber event to be transformed into a political rally in an election year. The October 29, 2002 funeral service for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota quickly morphed into a political rally against the administration of Bush 43. The Democrats filled the basketball arena chosen for the event and if you never heard booing...

    After an Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Sydney radio station posed the question if chess is racist because it’s customary for the white pieces to move first, Russian chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov and former Australian chess representative John Adams took to Twitter to slam the notion, calling it “bull—” and a waste of taxpayer dollars. Adams noted that ABC contacted him to make a comment on the segment, which is intended to run Wednesday. “They called me up and asked whether I was the John Adams involved in chess,” Adams told the Daily Telegraph. “Then they said with everything going on,...

    KANSAS CITY, MO -- New research shows black-owned businesses are more likely to shut down for good after the pandemic. The disproportionate number of black-owned businesses closing will lead to a disproportionate number of black people unemployed. That’s because we know people hire people who look like them. Experts say this is a product of systemic racism. Black-owned businesses have less access to capital and are more likely to be denied business loans. To fix these problems advocates say there should be policy changes to address the inequities. But, a survey from April found that more than 60% of black...

    DETROIT -- African Americans are disproportionately likely to say a family member or close friend has died of COVID-19 or respiratory illness since March, according to a series of surveys conducted since April that lays bare how black Americans have borne the brunt of the pandemic. Eleven percent of African Americans say they were close with someone who has died from the coronavirus, compared with 5% of Americans overall and 4% of white Americans. The findings are based on data from three COVID Impact surveys conducted between April and June by NORC at the University of Chicago for the Data...

    “Dear Mitch McConnell,” wrote Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr., last week. “Why don’t you just go ahead and call Barack Obama the n-word? You know you want to.”What led to this over-the-top racial attack from Pitts? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had the audacity to disagree with an approach taken by former President Barack Obama, who leaked audio of himself critiquing the Trump administration after new revelations about his involvement spying on the incoming Trump administration. McConnell thought it an unwise deviation from norms.The political media used to agree about the importance of this norm. In 2007, former...
