Top speakers included Joe Biden, who bemoaned the lack of acceptance for gay people, Anne Hathaway, who shrieked, “Let’s tear this world apart and build a better one”, and Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, who declared, “The age of bullies and bigots is not fully behind us”.

    ORTLAND, Oregon—Outfitted in a flak jacket and fighting gloves, Enrique Tarrio was one of dozens of black, Latino, and Asian men who marched alongside white supremacists in Portland on Aug. 4. Tarrio, who identifies as Afro-Cuban, is president of the Miami chapter of the Proud Boys, who call themselves “Western chauvinists,” and “regularly spout white-nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Last month, prior to the Patriot Prayer rally he attended in Portland, Tarrio was pictured with other far-right activists making a white-power hand sign. Last year, he and other Proud Boys...

    Basketball legend Michael Jordan voiced his support for LeBron James on Saturday after President Donald Trump posted a critical tweet regarding the Los Angeles Lakers superstar. According to Geoff Bennett of NBC News, Jordan released a statement through a spokesperson that read, "I support LJ. He's doing an amazing job for his community." On Friday night, Trump questioned James' intelligence and suggested he preferred Jordan: @realDonaldTrump LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike! Jordan was the latest in a long line...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) acknowledged that his conversations with President Trump about race have been "painful" and "uncomfortable," but insisted that the president has kept an open mind on the issue. "They're hard, they're painful, they're uncomfortable to sit in the Oval Office and have a conversation with the president about things that you strongly disagree about," Scott told CNN's Van Jones. "He didn't change his perspective, I certainly can't change my perspective." But Scott also said that he was "hopeful" after the conversations. "The way it closed I thought gave me reasons to be hopeful," Scott recalled. "It closed...

    Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval. A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trump’s approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent. It should be noted that Reuters only sampled slightly under 200 black males each week and slightly under 3,000 people overall. Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29. Black males were...
  • WATCH: Conservative Black Man TROLLS Starbucks; Gets Free Coffee By Simply Saying “Racism”

    A Twitter user by the name of “Hotep Jesus” walked into a Starbucks store and received a FREE cup of coffee simply because he said “I heard y’all was racist”. Starbucks has taken major heat over the last few days after a viral video showed two black men being taken away by police after causing a scene at a Starbucks because they weren’t allowed to use the restroom. In response to this incident, Starbucks announced that they will close 8,000 stores for one day in May for an afternoon for race-bias training. Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on...

    The Starbucks employee who made the 911 call that led to the arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia location, sparking furious charges of racism and calls to protest and boycott, is no longer with the company. The company’s president and CEO didn’t discuss what actions employees involved might face during a Monday morning appearance on “Good Morning America.” “It’s easy for me to point blame to one person in this incident. My responsibility is to look more broadly, just to ensure this never happens again,” Kevin Johnson said. “I’ve been very focused on understanding what guidelines and what...

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which I affectionately refer to as the Diseased Centers of Control, have conducted a study showing that black men make better parents than white men. The study, conducted in 2013, came to light in a recent Washington Post article on the Post's favorite topic – you guessed it! – of racism. The study was conducted by the CDC's Division of Vital Statistics, centering on how involved fathers are in the lives of their children. It found the following: 1) Thirty-five percent of white fathers who don't live with their children do not eat meals...
  • Police Violence against Black Men Is Rare

    National Review ^ | September 18, 2017 | Phillippe Lemoine
    In reality, a randomly selected black man is overwhelmingly unlikely to be victim of police violence — and though white men experience such violence even less often, the disparity is consistent with the racial gap in violent crime, suggesting that the role of racial bias is small. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s tally, just 16 unarmed black men, out of a population of more than 20 million, were killed by the police. The year before, the number was 36. These figures are likely close to the number of black men struck by lightning in a given year, considering...

    Image from officialblackgunsmatter.com For years, I have been writing the urban black community is a natural place to recruit Second Amendment activists. The people there are those most in need of guns for self defense.  John Lott came to the same conclusion with academic studies of who benefits most from concealed carry laws. Second Amendment activists have long said that firearms training increases responsibility and maturity. It has worked in rural areas. It should work in urban centers. Maj Toure decided to take that concept and run with it.  Maj is one of a number of black firearms activists...

About 4:30 p.m., police were called to the 800 block of the beach to assist lifeguards with several intoxicated and loud people causing a disturbance, police said. The men, who were assaulting the lifeguards when they arrived, turned their aggression toward the officers, police said.

    Tuesday night (Sept. 20), 38-year-old Travon Williams lay dead on the pavement outside a small grocery store at the intersection of North Claiborne Avenue and Desire Street. Fatally shot, Williams had followed a grim pattern running through his family, a well-worn groove of untimely, violent deaths. According to those who knew him, Williams had spent the past few years of his life trying to build better relationships with his daughters -- and trying to free himself from a tragic legacy. At age 5, Williams lost his 24-year-old mother to gunfire at a Desire neighborhood barroom. Gretchen Williams of Desire was...

    After threatening to sue, the Chicago Tribune has obtained data from the city’s police department that tracks every time an officer has opened fire in the city over the past six years. The vast majority of those hit were black men or boys. There were 435 police shootings from 2010 through 2015, in which officers killed 92 people and wounded 170 others. In all, officers fired 2,623 bullets. The newspaper’s findings show about four out of every five people shot were African-American males. It found that about half of the officers involved were African-American or Hispanic and most of them...

    America does not really have a "gun violence" problem.  America has a violent urban black culture problem.  If you want to look at the numbers more closely, you can add in a violent illegal immigrant problem. There is a common theme that has become an Internet cliché when a young black man is shot and killed in the middle of a violent crime. "He was such a nice boy." "He was turning his life around." "He was an aspiring rap star." "They didn't have to shoot him." It is refreshing when the mother of a young black man shot...
