The Invisible Black Republican

image002.jpgBy Raynard Jackson, Columnist 

I have been asking and will continue to ask, where are the Black Republicans?  Race will be one of the top issues in the 2016 elections and none of our presidential campaigns have any Blacks in the media representing their respective campaigns. 

Why in the hell do Republicans continue to have white staffers try to address racial issues within the Black community?  Are these campaigns really that stupid? 

Black Republicans have absolutely no presence in the media when

From “us” to “WE”

www.iamoneofthemillion.com

Listening to conscious black talk radio programs as I often do, I am struck by the frequency with which callers, and occasionally even the guests, make statements about what “we” need to do about some issue of concern to black people. Invariably, actions they call for would require that “we” be organized as a prerequisite to any potential success; thus my question: How do “we” expect to accomplish anything that requires “us” to become

Ferguson, Missouri - One Year Later

by Charles E. Campbell, Founder & CEO of The Quiet Resolution, TQR, Inc.

8/10/15

A clear example of Black Leadership Failure at every level one year later after the murder of Michael Brown.  From The White House of President Obama and his Administration to Black Mayors, Black Preachers and Black Organizations, who have done nothing to address the "Apartheid-like" conditions under which Black African Americans live in America in 2015.

Africans,

If we are to win Black Power in MertoEast in Saint Louis, Missouri, we must deal with the issue of crime there. I have decided to go for it. I need your feedback and input. I think this is the right approach is for no other reason that it is unavoidable. Every time I deal with Brooklyn or Washington Park, I am confronted with corruption and prostitution. I have concluded that prostitution is at the root of nearly all of our social problems in the African community, out of wedlock childb

Hands Up - Don't Shoot

Contrary to the refrain from the tragic Ferguson, Mo., shooting of Michael Brown, we know that keeping your hands up does not mean you will not be shot. Assata Shakur had her hands up when she was shot on the New Jersey turnpike by a State Trooper, Oscar Grant was laying face down on a subway platform when he was shot in the back by a Bay Area Transit cop, Sean Bell was executed in a hail of bullets by a half dozen N.Y. city cops while sitting in a car, and Trayvon Martin fought to defend himsel

I have so much to share that I really do not know where to begin.  Right or wrong, I will start by saying that “Cheryl” did great by posting “Africans and their obsession with other people's religion”.  I do not know “Cheryl” and never heard of her, and I don’t yet know what all she believes.   Nevertheless, the information she brought forward is right on

Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush, who has been in office since 1993, isn't much of a presence in the district or on Capitol Hill. He took a leave of absence to deal with his wife's illness, no doubt a big reason he missed more than a third of votes in 2013. Bu

Leaving Meat Behind and Going Vegan

Eliminating animal use from your life can seem quite straightforward at times, while at others it may seem challenging. For instance, opting out of animal use in entertainment is as simple as not supporting activities that use animals (zoos, circuses, rodeos, etc.). However, once you start looking at food and clothing labels, it can be surprising how many of them use some sort of animal product.
Contemplating the Transition to Vegan

When it comes to clothing, new vegans may find it challenging to

Last week a piece circulated the internet written by a young woman about the three months she spent in India. She'd travelled there as part of the University of Chicago Indian Civilizations Program. That in itself isn't the part that made the story viral – it was her description of the sexual harassment and physical abuse she suffered at the hands of Indian men that got everyone's attention.

The young lady in question recounted frightening tales of having her breasts and crotch clawed at by total

 Why Black African Americas Should Care About Fracking?

by

C. Earl Campbell DA 3rd, MSW

The answer is clear. We too value clean air and water. Black African Americans have all too often been the victims of environmental racism caused by Corporate greed. Hydraulic fracturing is a process used in nine out of 10 natural gas wells in the United States, where millions of gallons of water, sand and toxic chemicals (poisons) are pumped underground to break apart Shale Rock in order to release the gas trap

President Obama: Please Call Home

By Raynard Jackson

NNPA Columnist

 

Last week, I criticized President Obama for his anemic, voiceless, almost whispered response to the tragic death of Hadiya Pendleton.  She was a 15-year-old honor student who was shot and killed in Chicago two weeks ago after having performed at Obama’s inauguration.

To my total amazement, there was a torrent of criticism from within the Black community about Obama’s tepid public statement about Hadiya’s death.  I was proud that many in the Black community finally
