    The Washington Times ^ | January 10, 2017 | Jessica Chasmar
    Georgetown University professor and author Michael Eric Dyson says white people should keep an “individual reparations account” to make donations to black groups and atone for America’s history of slavery and racism. Mr. Dyson was discussing his forthcoming book, “Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America,” with New York Times Magazine when he touched on a subject in his book that talks about white people making reparations on the local and individual level. The Times’ Ana Marie Cox said Mr. Dyson suggested donating to the United Negro College Fund or paying “the black person who cuts your grass...

    Spoken word artists and community organizers filled the Goodhand Room at the LGBT Center on Sunday, reading poems about the terror of racial violence, lynching and systemic injustice. The poetry readings marked the kick-off event, “Will Black Lives Matter during the Presidency of Donald Trump?” of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Symposium on Social Change. The symposium is a series of events from Jan. 15 to Feb. 2 on campus honoring King’s legacy. The kickoff event hosted artists and activists from the National Black Author’s Tour. They spoke about dismantling systems of oppression, the fear many black people...

    The New York Post ^ | January 17, 2017 | Post Editorial Board
    President-elect Donald Trump is paying too much heed to the ranting of civil-rights veteran John Lewis: The Georgia congressman’s been playing the same tune about every top Republican for years now. Yes, Lewis’ accusation was baseless and blatantly partisan: He said Trump isn’t a “legitimate president” because of Russian hacking, and he’d skip the inauguration, “the first one I’ve missed since I’ve been in Congress.” Oops: He didn’t attend George W. Bush’s inauguration in 2001, either — charging that Dubya wasn’t truly elected. Last year, Lewis said Trump “reminds me so much of the things that George Wallace said and...

    CNN's Marc Lamont Hill referred to Trump diversity team member Bruce LeVell as a part of a group of "mediocre Negroes" who met with the president-elect. The characterization, which includes Pastor Darryl Scott and television host and comedian Steve Harvey, came during a panel discussion with host Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight" on Monday. “They (the Trump transition team) keep bringing up comedians and and actors athletes to represent black interests. It’s demeaning, it’s disrespectful, and it’s condescending,” Hill argued. “Bring some people up there with expertise, Donald Trump, don’t just bring up people to entertain.”

    The most important statement in the Justice Department’s damning report on the Chicago Police Department has nothing to do with police behavior. Released on Friday, the report found the Chicago police guilty of a “pattern or practice” of unconstitutional force. But it turns out that the Justice Department has no standard for what constitutes a “pattern or practice” (the phrase comes from a 1994 federal statute) of unconstitutional police conduct. “Statistical evidence is not required” for a “pattern or practice” finding, the DOJ lawyers announce, citing unrelated court precedent. Nor is there “a specific number of incidents” required to constitute...

    According to The New York Times, Jennifer Willis was planning to travel up to D.C. from South Carolina with her two daughters to attend the Women’s March on Washington on the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration. She thought it’d be a great opportunity to stand alongside her sisters and protest Trump’s misogyny. Then she got a harsh lesson in how the political left conducts itself. One of the event’s organizers, a black woman from Brooklyn, lectured on Facebook in excluding language that white “allies” should listen more and talk less, adding, “You don’t get to join because now you’re scared...

    LULA, Ga. — Patti Thomas owns a flower shop in the north Georgia town of Lula. Xavier Bryant runs an independent pharmacy just outside Atlanta. Looking toward the inauguration of an entrepreneur as president, the two share this expectation: Donald Trump will be good for business. "He's already proven he can turn things around," the 52-year-old Thomas said, crediting Trump with Ford Motor Co.'s recent announcement that it would scrap a planned Mexico plant while expanding in Michigan. "Just his business enthusiasm, we've been lacking that." "My intuition," the 33-year-old Bryant agrees, "is telling me that small business owners will...

In many ways, the goal has already been reached, particularly when party toadies the likes of John Lewis have built their career on a single act, even if it was one deserving merit.

    Less than a week before the inauguration, political commentator Van Jones predicted “a horrendous abuse of power” once Donald Trump takes office as president of the United states. The CNN commentator spoke on Sunday night at the home of Netflix chief Ted Sarandos about the documentary “13th,” on a panel with filmmaker Ava DuVernay and media mogul Oprah Winfrey. The film explores the abuses and racial inequities of the prison system, with the title referring to the 13th amendment abolishing slavery. Asked by Winfrey what he expected of the new administration, Jones said, “I think mostly bad things. Both parties...

Sharpton said Americans must be "concerned" about the future of the country when President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated next week.

In August, he compared the nation's inner cities to war zones, declaring during a campaign stop in Ohio, “The Democrats have failed completely in the inner cities." “For those hurting the most, who...

    Obviously, President-elect Donald Trump isn’t a favorite with African Americans considering he won his impending position with only eight percent of the black vote. Those bottom-tier numbers also reflect the support he’s gotten from melanin-rich celebrities as well (outside of Kanye West). Steve Harvey also caught flak on Friday (January 13) for visiting the president-elect at Trump Towers and announcing his plans to work with Department of Housing and Urban Development lead Ben Carson. One outspoken comedian that’s had enough is D.L. Hughley, who went to social media to speak on his disgust with Donald Trump and his use of...

    Democratic Minnesota Representative and Democratic National Committee chairman candidate Keith Ellison once called for slavery reparations and a separate country for black Americans in a university newspaper column. Ellison’s writings while a student at the University of Minnesota law school– under the name “Keith Hakim”– raised eyebrows when he announced his first congressional run in 2006. The Weekly Standard noted that “Ellison refers to ‘Minister Louis Farrakhan,’ defends Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad, and speaks in the voice of a Nation of Islam advocate… ‘Hakim’ demands reparations for slavery and throws in a demand for an optional separate...

"It's really about political power and racial division and what I've referred to on occasion as the 'war on whites.' They are trying to motivate the African-American vote to vote-bloc for Democrats by using every 'Republican is a racist' tool that they can envision," the Republican congressman said on "The Morning Show With Toni & Gary" on WBHP 800 Alabama radio.

    The FBI reported that the total number of homicides in 2015 was 15,696. Blacks were about 52 percent of homicide victims. That means about 8,100 black lives were ended violently, and over 90 percent of the time, the perpetrator was another black. Listening to the news media and the Black Lives Matter movement, one would think that black deaths at the hands of police are the major problem. It turns out that in 2015, police across the nation shot and killed 986 people. Of that number, 495 were white (50 percent), 258 were black (26 percent) and 172 Hispanic (17...

Tim Scott (R-SC) is the only African-American Republican member of the Senate. He has also publicly supported Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for attorney general. William Smith, an African American who formerly served as Sessions' counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee, also has gone on the record to defend his former employer from accusations of racism.Naturally, "tolerant" liberals didn't take this very well.

They praised President Barack Obama’s achievements while at the same time pushing him to do more for their constituents who overwhelmingly supported his history-making campaign and administration. But with Obama set to leave the White House on Jan. 20, black lawmakers in the House and Senate are recalculating and reassessing their place in Washington. And realizing they’re regaining the limelight as the most visible and powerful African-American politicians in the nation’s capital. President-elect Donald Trump will face a larger and...

The painting, which has hung for months in a tunnel that connects House office buildings with the U.S. Capitol, was chosen the winner of Clay’s annual art competition for St. Louis students last spring. It was done by then-Cardinal...
  • More black millennial men voted GOP in 2016 than previously thought (25%!)

    After the shocking results of the 2016 election, most analysts focused on the shift among working-class whites towards Donald Trump. However, there was another seismic transformation on election day that may have longer repercussions: young black men are leaving the Democratic Party like never before. Exit polls of the nationwide House races showed two important numbers, black men and millennials voted for the GOP in numbers that hadn’t been seen in decades. According to CNN exit polls, 18 percent voted of black men for a Republican candidate for the U.S. House, which is more than three times the number of...

    Where is Obama with all of the mall terrorism going on? Someone has apparently orchestrated a dry run on hurting and/or killing a lot of shoppers at a mall and there is silence from the White House? Where is the head of the FBI? Why isn't Comey coming out and saying they are going to find out who has violated the Rico Statute and organized a low-level terror run on the malls causing a lot of shoppers to injure themselves? Where are the leaders to condemn this and promise to put a halt to it? What about Michael Moore? Why...

    Massive brawls and food-court fights played out at more than a dozen malls across the country in what proved to be a chaotic day after Christmas. Some of the mayhem was captured on social media. The chaos prevented some shoppers from grabbing clothes off clearance racks and returning gifts. The mall incidents, which ranged from minor melees to mass evacuations, occurred from Colorado to Tennessee and Texas to New Jersey. Police in some cities are investigating the role social media may have played in organizing the disturbances. The motive behind the mall brawls is not yet known. Here's what happened...

    Fort Worth Police say they went to the Hulen Mall Monday night on a shots fired call. When they arrived, they found no evidence of a shooting. What they found instead were massive melees, breaking out one after the other inside the mall. Police say between 100 and 150 teenagers were fighting each other in the food court. In the end, police say up to four teenagers received citations for fighting. We know now that mall fights similar to these happened all over the country Monday night. Police are looking into the connections.

    I watched the election results in Emory University’s Black Student Union with Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book and gospel playing in the background. There was a table full of cupcakes, salsa and chips, and pizza; I sat with my French workbook in my lap. Every time a red state was taken a prayer was said, and the mood became more somber. I jumped out of my chair when Virginia, my home state, pulled through as blue for the third year in a row. I have never been naďve about elections. I grew up in a battleground state. My parents taught...

    Pundits ignore the real reason for the racial disparity in deaths by police shooting. CNN is making a desperate pitch to further enflame the ideological war on cops while it still has a sympathetic ear in the White House. The CNN website is promoting a laughably incomplete study of police use of fatal force under the headline “Black men nearly 3 times as likely to die from police use of force, study says.” Utterly ignored in the study and in CNN’s write-up is any mention of violent-crime rates, which vary enormously by race and which predict officer use of force....
  • Obama: I Can’t Pursue Reparations Because It’s Politically Infeasible

    President Barack Obama said in an interview published Wednesday that reparations payments for black Americans could be a good idea but simply aren’t politically feasible. Speaking with The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates, Obama said that it’s easy to make an argument for reparations for black Americans because of past sins like slavery and Jim Crow laws. . . . A report released by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on African Descent accused the U.S. of having a racist history. The country’s history of slavery and current police shootings, the report argued, meant that America owes the black community reparations.

    On March 23, 2012, President Barack Obama gave a press conference in the Rose Garden. A little less than a month before, George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watchman, had shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin after a violent encounter prosecutors said was instigated by Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Local police had released Zimmerman after five hours of questioning, saying there was not enough evidence to refute his claim of self-defense. It was an obviously incomplete investigation, and the Martin family was demanding justice. In the weeks that had passed, journalists, especially Trymaine Lee then at The Huffington Post and Ta-Nehisi Coates at...

    In late October of this year, then candidate Trump gave a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in which he outlined his plan for his first 100 days in office. It included three major areas of focus: cleaning up corruption in Washington, job creation and what many called a “law and order” agenda. The speech was reported on and then largely forgotten. So what should black Americans be looking for in the first 100 days of a Trump presidency? I believe we should press for three major priorities, which are very compatible with what Trump has already put forth: a growing economy...

    By MICHAEL ERIC DYSON In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, Kanye West appeared on live TV during a celebrity fund-raiser for victims of the disaster and said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” This wasn’t based on intimate knowledge of Mr. Bush’s racial views, but rather on his treatment of black people in a time of crisis. Donald J. Trump, who met with Mr. West this past week to discuss “multicultural issues,” according to the rapper, hasn’t been in charge yet to steer black Americans through a crisis. But we have seen enough of his views and behaviors to hazard...
