    Donald Trump made a campaign stop and gave a speech in Dimondale, Michigan on Friday, August 19th, 2016 in which he made the controversial statement: "You're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58% of your youth is unemployed -- what the hell do you have to lose?" Dimondale, Michigan is a largely white suburb outside of Lansing, although there were non-white people in the crowd, particularly a black woman who stood right behind Trump during his speech and was cheering him on... Liberals, especially high-ranking liberals like Hillary Clinton who called what Trump said...

    Observation: Have you noticed that when Trump talks to or about the Black Community, that CNN's headline is: "Trump To Blacks: What Do You Have To Lose?" or "Trump Makes Outreach Bid To Blacks From A White Suburb", yet when they talk about Queen Hillary, the term AFRICAN-AMERICAN is used and not BLACK? Trump's speech this afternoon from Michigan was really good -- and he never said the word "BLACK". He said "AFRICAN-AMERICAN". Yet CNN's headlines say "Trump... Black". Such a misrepresentation! This is why the mainstream media blows!

    How many times have Donald Trump's supporters and critics debated whether he will pivot to a larger, more presidential candidacy? Too many to count. So put aside any talk of pivoting the fact is, Trump delivered a focused, powerful, and disciplined speech Tuesday night in West Bend, Wisconsin, about 45 minutes north of Milwaukee. Trump focused largely on problems that disproportionately afflict black Americans, arguing that his proposals on crime, immigration, trade, jobs, education, and other issues will improve African-American lives more than Hillary Clinton's. Trump began by declaring, "We're at a decisive moment in this election," which few...

Someone takes a video or something, but without the full story/context, and immediately, the cops are guilty? I think not. One of the problems the black community has today is the much higher rate of crime among blacks compared to other groups, Hispanics included. Lower school graduation rates, low college attendance, and even lower majoring in USEFUL majors among blacks who get to college....

    For the past fifteen or so years, there has been a movement among some liberals to require that the descendents of former slaves be paid for the suffering of their ancestors. Conservatives have railed against this transfer of wealth, saying (rightly, one should add) that a person or entity cannot be held responsible for the actions of another person who has been dead for over 150 years. Lloyds of London was sued in 2004 by a group of descendents of African slaves, and the British court system ruled against their claim. There have been other claims made by the descendents...

    Even though the Civil War had ended in 1865, political and racial strife continued to northern and southern states. In an attempt to mend the rift, the Republican-controlled Congress passed the First Reconstruction Act in 1867, but many southerners objected to the act saying it favored northern interests and not their own. At the same time, two groups of disenfranchised Americans lobbied for the right to vote women and blacks. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were among the leading women suffragists. The most prominent among the black suffragists was Frederick Douglas. All these groups wanted was the...

Only 34% of Americans now say that race relations are "fairly good" or "very good," down substantially from the 77% who believed in racial unity immediately after Obama took office. "This is a very sad chart," said pollster Bill McInturff. "It's a reminder of what a continued rupture point in our country race is." Tellingly, many news reports noted that the last time Americans saw race relations with this...

As his top military aide, Lewis was a right-hand advisor to Carter, providing him analysis on military issues, joining him at high-level meetings, and traveling with him on overseas missions. Carter said the Pentagon’s Inspector General would investigate the allegations against Lewis and, if necessary, the Army would take...

    The Kentucky senator gets a lot of attention for his outreach efforts. But hes not the only Republican looking to win black voters in the post-Obama era.

With each passing election the Republican electorate has gotten older and whiter, while America is getting younger and browner. That presents a problem for what is increasingly becoming the Gray Old Party. The only real choice for Republicans is to win a meaningful share of brown or black voters....

Steele, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, explains that in matters of race, there is an ideological vision that completely ignores truth -- a vision he calls "poetic truth." In literature, poetic license takes liberties with grammatical rules, as well as realities, in order to create a more beautiful or powerful effect than would be otherwise possible.

Also on the list: Emerson Electric, a company thats been a Ferguson fixture for more than five decades, The Gateway Pundit reported.

    Salon.com, well know for its nonsensical liberal platitudes, has reached the summit of absurdity once again, saying that filmmakers are too reliant on "light skinned black characters," and that African Americans in the film "Dear White People" are not dark enough. The author, Morgan Jenkins, ironically, is herself a "light-skinned" African American. And she does not feel that people like her can truly capture African Americans' experience in the United States. She writes, "Frankly, as a light-skinned African-American female, I am tired of seeing women who look like myself presented as the epitome of complexity when it comes to setting...

    A group of teenagers vandalized a Brooklyn deli on Saturday night after leaving a raucous party nearby, said police. Surveillance footage of the event shows the teens storming the entrance of Gourmet Butcher, a deli in crown heights at just after 9pm. The young vandals can be seen knocking over shelves in the front of the store and grabbing armfuls of candy as they threw storage on the ground.

    Folks, when I saw what the Democrats are doing to this American black woman in Utah, I had to sound the alarm. Black Republican Mia Love is running for Congress in Utah. Love's liberal opponent and the Democrats have pulled out all the stops, launching a hate website against her, No love for Mia, and a $300,000 smack-down ad campaign trashing the sister. Meanwhile, hypocritically, they accuse Republicans of having a war on women. Folks, it amazes me that Democrats, the MSM, and liberals continue to get away with their scam, portraying themselves as champions of minority empowerment.

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Mothers who give birth in areas with higher concentrations of African-Americans are less likely to get breastfeeding support on maternity wards than mothers in other communities, a new study shows. Breastfeeding provides well-documented health benefits to infants and their mothers. But African-American women are about 16 percent less likely to nurse their newborns than white women, according to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Many blacks, who twice voted for Obama in record numbers to elect him as the nation's first African-American president, are angry that he has neglected the problems facing inner cities while working on the border crisis. These big-city ills include chronic black unemployment, poor housing conditions, steep prices for food and services, low high-school graduation rates, and high crime rates. "Black people are being played," Herman Cain... By all accounts and as reported by Brietbart.com, the number of Border Patrol arrests of illegal immigrants since Oct. 1 stands at 174,000 and is still rising. Cain and other African-American conservatives charge...

    INDIANAPOLIS Standing in a small booth surrounded by displays for rifles, pistols, holsters and other firearm accouterments, the Rev. Kenn Blanchard signed copies of his book Black Man With a Gun: Reloaded. Amid the sea of thousands of white faces that descended on this city for the National Rifle Association convention in late April, Mr. Blanchard, an N.R.A. member since 1991, offered his reasoning for why he was one of the few black visitors. We still culturally have a fear that were going to be that lone guy out, and you dont want to be the lone guy out,...

    Michelle Obama has largely ignored unflattering critiques of her physical appearance, often tinged with racial overtones, that have been lobbed by people who apparently still have not accepted the fact that African Americans inhabit the White House. At a memorial service Saturday for poet Maya Angelou, who died last week at age 86, Obama offered revealing insights about how she and other black women sometimes define their beauty in the context of the larger societys standards. The first time I read Phenomenal Woman, I was struck by how she celebrated black womens beauty like no one had ever dared to...
