    A video posted on social media this week shows a police officer keeping his knee planted on the neck of a black man who pleaded that he couldn’t breathe and subsequently died shortly afterward. It happened Monday night, when cops were responding to a “forgery in progress.” Police arrived and saw the suspect sitting in a car. According to the Department, the man resisted arrest so he was placed in handcuffs, adding “he appeared to be suffering medical distress.” The Police Dept. added, “At no time were weapons of any type used by anyone involved in this incident.” What the...

    Charlamagne, the host of American syndicated radio, "The Breakfast Club," slammed former Vice President Joe Biden for spearheading legislation that continually harms the black community. Charlamagne's comments come after an interview he conducted with the former vice president. During that interview Biden said someone "ain't black" if they decide to vote for President Trump. "My overall takeaway from the conversation was I heard him talking about things he did for black people back in the day but, you know, 'What have you done for me lately?' is my motto," he explained during a segment on CNN. "You know, I see...

    Some New York City neighborhoods have seen death rates from the novel coronavirus nearly 15 times higher than others, according to data released by New York City’s health department on Monday, showing the disproportionate toll taken on poor communities. The data shows for the first time a breakdown on the number of deaths in each of the city’s more than 60 ZIP codes. The highest death rate was seen on the edge of Brooklyn in a neighborhood dominated by a large subsidized-housing development called Starrett City. Civic leaders had been pushing for the more granular data, which they said would...

    A video shows a white couple bending down and kissing the boots of black power group members to apologize for slavery. The eight-minute clip appears to have been filmed in First Citizens Plaza in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was uploaded to the YouTube page of the Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge, a radical faction of the black nationalist Black Hebrew Israelite movement, under the title: “WHEN HEATHENS #RECOGNIZE TRUE #PROPHETS OF #GOD.” Two people who had expressed an affinity with the group were responsible for the December 2019 attack on a JC Kosher Supermarket in Jersey City, New Jersey...

    For some reason the national mainstream media did not play up the color of the shooter, nor of the victims, in this horrific double murder. Weird, huh? It’s almost like the national mainstream media purposely lies to the American public? Strange. 29-year-old Sheldon Francis gunned down a married couple in their 80s on Friday in the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery. The woman died at the scene; her husband died a day later, in the hospital. CBS Local reported: According to police, Sheldon Francis, 29, of Middletown, Delaware, shot the 85-year-old woman and 86-year-old man while they were visiting the...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/06/2020 | Daren M. Williams
    Every time my father disciplined me when I was growing up under his roof, he would tell me, “only babies and animals are not accountable for their actions.” My father’s lesson was simple: all people must be held accountable for the things they say and do. That’s the way it should be. It is a sign of growth and maturity, and personal accountability is engrained in the American tradition. For many years dating to the end of slavery, black Americans shared this perspective as a matter of individualism and familial pride. But beginning in the 1960s, a lot of black...

    Data collected at the county level shows that COVID-19 is more prevalent among black and Hispanic populations, revealing significant racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare.

  • Coronavirus “Frontline” Worker ‘Stole Engagement Ring And Credit Cards From Dementia Woman Who Died From Coronavirus’

    From my anecdotal experience (just my own relatives), care-provider theft from the dying and recently deceased is endemic and has been for a long, long time. Usually, the value seems to be low enough that families don’t want to make an issue of it at a time when they are grieving. We can only guess how many elderly Covid-19 victims have been damaged by these so-called”frontline” workers. A caregiver allegedly stole and pawned the engagement ring of an 86-year-old woman with dementia as she lay dying from coronavirus. As Denver Channel reported 29-year-old Aurora woman who was working as a...

    When Allen Hargrove leaves his Brooklyn apartment to get groceries, he does so with an underlying feeling of worry. It’s not just the coronavirus pandemic: As a black man, he fears he could draw unwanted attention by wearing a mask in public. “I have a sense of anxiety wearing the mask,” said Mr. Hargrove, 33, who described himself as having a “football build,” at 220 pounds. “It makes me more aware of how I’m being perceived.”

    COVID-19 has claimed one more life in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 87, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 8 a.m. Saturday. Oregon Health Authority also reported 76 new cases of COVID-19 as of 8 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 2,253. This is what we have heard from the mainstream media when it comes to COVID 19 and Oregon. But no one reported the racism that was displayed by on Portland county. An Oregon county in the Portland area said it was creating a safe “grounding space” for minority staff to escape a predominant “whiteness.” From...

    There were 1,300 direct flights to 17 cities before President Trump’s travel restrictions. Since then, nearly 40,000 Americans and other authorized travelers have made the trip. Since Chinese officials disclosed the outbreak of a mysterious pneumonialike illness to international health officials on New Year’s Eve, at least 430,000 people have arrived in the United States on direct flights from China, including nearly 40,000 in the two months after President Trump imposed restrictions on such travel, according to an analysis of data collected in both countries. Of course, this travel ban was labeled as racists by the liberals and the mainstream...

    Because black people are treated like criminals if they do the same. CNN has published a lengthy article suggesting that wearing face masks to guard against coronavirus is racist due to African-Americans not being able to wear them over fears they will be treated like criminals. Yes, really. Noting that the CDC has encouraged all Americans to wear face masks in the fight against COVID-19, Trevor Logan, an economics professor at Ohio State University, says he “will not be following this guidance.” “We have a lot of examples of the presumed criminality of black men in general,” Logan, who presumably...

Other cities with large black populations, including Detroit, Milwaukee, New Orleans and New York, have become coronavirus hotspots.

    CHICAGO — Black coronavirus victims are dying at disproportionately high rates, a problem Gov. JB Pritzker said is due, in part, to “decades, frankly, maybe centuries, of inequality of application of health care to people of color.” In Chicago, 70 percent of the people who have died from coronavirus are Black, according to a WBEZ analysis. Black people comprise just 29 percent of Chicago’s population.

    A large swath of those casting ballots in Tuesday’s Democratic primary think Joe Biden is the man to beat President Trump — especially women and African American voters, who fueled the former veep’s string of commanding victories. About 80 percent in Michigan and Missouri and roughly 90 percent in Mississippi believed Biden, 77, could trounce the incumbent in November, according to AP VoteCast surveys. And they delivered him wins in all three of those states.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden won the Mississippi primary on Tuesday, the latest in his string of victories in the deep south, where black voters have turned out in big numbers to support his campaign. News outlets called the victory for Biden over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as soon as polls closed. Biden’s final margin of victory is not known yet, but polls showed him up by 50 points heading into Election Day, so he’ll likely win a strong majority of the 36 delegates up for grabs. Sanders cancelled a planned event in Mississippi last week, deciding instead that his...
