Joe Biden Claims Trump Is Our Most ‘Openly Racist’ President

Joe Biden continues to struggle when it comes to discussing race. His latest comments about Trump’s racism shows our former Vice President might need a bit of a history lesson.

Biden appears to have a bit of amnesia. We have had more presidents who were openly racist than not. Ronald Reagan supported Apartheid in South Africa, which was a racist system that gave whites political control over 90 percent of the county that was Black. His administration even labeled opponents of Apartheid, like the African National Congress, as being Communists (the same language Lindsay Graham was using). Not to mention Willie Horton and popularizing the racist term “welfare queens.” [Read more]

Sen. Kamala Harris Lands Endorsement Of Major Civil Rights Attorney

Although Sen. Kamala Harris was the clear winner at the Democratic debate, she is struggling with Black voters, which is a key voting block to win the Democratic primaries. However, she now has the endorsement of a major civil rights attorney.

Attorney Benjamin Crump has endorsed Harris. He has represented the family of Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Mike Brown. He told Polticio, “When you look up some of the stuff that she’s tried to do working from the inside, you know that she understands the challenges of trying to get progress when there are a lot of powers that be that are pushing against the cause for equal justice.” [Read more]

Security Cameras Catch White Security Guard Pull Gun On Black Ohio Sheriff In Full Uniform

A white security guard is now facing charges for pointing his gun at a fully uniformed Ohio sheriff’s deputy and yes, the deputy is Black.

Lucas County Sheriff’s Deputy Alan Gaston walked into a Toledo IRS office on May 31 to inquire about a letter he received. Surveillance video showed him in full uniform with his gun and badge clearly visible. Before Gaston could talk to someone, he was confronted by Seth Eklund, an armed security guard who told him that he could not enter the office with a gun and urged him to place it in his car. Gaston declined because he was still on duty and decided to leave the premises instead. But as he walked out, Eklund followed him with his gun drawn. [Read more]

Chicago Paramedics Says It Was A ‘Tragic Error’ To Let A 17-Year-Old Gunshot Victim Die In The Street

On June 18, 2018, 17-year-old Erin Carey survived a gunshot wound to the head in Chicago. However, as he was lying in the street, a white sheet was thrown over him by the paramedics and he was left for dead, not being treated for an hour. Fox 5 reports, “Shortly after the shooting, TV cameras captured Carey moving under the sheet for at least 15 minutes.” He later died at the hospital.

Now the Chicago Paramedics are calling his death a “tragic error.” Carey’s family filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court. [Read more]

Super Beauty Founder TiffanyJ Aims To Empower Black Youth Through Book Series And Doll Line

Navigating adolescence was an uphill battle for South Carolina-bred entrepreneur TiffanyJ. The pressures of fitting in with her peers, her ongoing struggle with low self-esteem and depression and dealing with the complexities of a torn family that had been ravaged by divorce led to her first suicide attempt at 12 years old. Sadly, stories similar to TiffanyJ’s have become far too common amongst Black youth today. According to a study released by JAMA Pediatrics, the suicide rate for Black children is twice the rate of whites. Further research revealed that the suicide rate amongst Black girls between the ages of 13 and 19 increased by 182 percent between 2001 and 2017. While the experiences of Black youth are not monolithic and there are several different factors that come into play that shapes their lives, the alarming trend must be addressed. TiffanyJ is on a mission to prevent other Black children from becoming statistics and has been dedicated to using her creativity and artistry as a source of empowerment through her brand Super Beauty.
