    Jails / Prisons : The Private Prison Industry Is Licking Its Chops Over Trump's Deportation Plans

    They're not "laying off" of us. They're just adding them. These are equal opportunity racists we're dealing with. If they're going after Hispanics, best believe we're on that same hit list. Honestly, when were we ever NOT targeted? The private prisons are ALREADY filled to the brim with black...

    Black People Politics : Black Leadership Accountability Crucial

    I agree that some black people didn't want to criticize Obama, but there were also others who expected Obama to be MLK, Malcolm X, and Jesus all rolled into one.

    Black Entertainment : ‘The Black Girl’ Stacey Dash Gets Canned By Fox News

    Remember when Obama ran the 1st time and the RNC made Michael Steele their chairperson, then fired him after the election when they had no more use for him? I'm sensing a theme here... :thinking:

    Black People Politics : Why did 13% of black men vote for Trump?

    Can someone please help me to understand what is going on with the 13% of our men who voted for Trump? More black men voted for Trump than for Romney, McCain, or Bush. I can understand some of them saying they weren't inspired by Hillary, but they could've chosen to write in another name, or...

    Black People Politics : "Pity the sad legacy of Barack Obama" : Cornel West

    Actually the first thing Obama did was the stimulus in 2009 (The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act). This stopped the increasing number of job losses and addressed the immediate needs of those who were out of work (extend unemployment insurance, extend welfare and food stamp funding...
