How can anyone, Democratic or Republican, justify voting to confirm someone who said on the record that she supports illegal activity? But, of course Republicans will cave in and vote for her simply because she is Black and they donât want to be labeled as a racist.
Though Priebus didnât know it, members of his staff had unilaterally decided that they no longer needed me and organized the event without me or my input. Just looking at the names of this yearâs awardees, you can tell that I had nothing to do with it: Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Congressman Will Hurd (R-Texas), and Congressman Mia Love (R-Utah). They are good and honorable people whose election to Congress as Black Republicans were historic â but not trailblazing.
Listening to Obama, you would have thought that America, especially Blacks, had full employment. But according to the Labor Department, the national unemployment rate is 5.6 percent and 10.4 percent for Blacks â nothing to brag about in either case.
Liberals, whether in Europe or 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, have a worldview on immigration that makes absolutely no sense. And that was before todayâs terrorism. These liberals believe that the world has a âconstitutional rightâ to be in their countries, whether they came legally or not. Remember, in liberalism, âintentâ always supersedes action.
I think Scalise could have survived the fact that he attended this racist gathering simply by being honest about the fact that he attended and it was a huge mistake. He could have asserted that his body of work in public office has proven that his views are not consistent with what the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO) represent.
There was a time when women were praised for working through the problems everyone faces during the course of a marriage. Women used to be ashamed at the prospect of a divorce. As hard as it is for the public to understand, many of these women never bailed out because they still loved their husband, flaws and all.
St. Louis County (which includes Ferguson) has aÂ Black unemployment rate of 17.8%Â while the White unemployment rate is only 5.7%.Â Ferguson and St. Louis County has been ruled by Democrats for well over 30 years.Â Ferguson didnât just happen, it has been waiting to happen and Democrats didnât give a damn.
Even Fat Albert knows Bill Cosby is getting a raw deal. As a public relations/crisis management professional. I have worked with some of the biggest names in sports, entertainment, and business. So, letâs deconstruct this media frenzy engulfing the man who was once Americaâs favorite TV dad.
When you see Republicans or Republican events on TV, you see a crowd of nothing but White faces in the audience.Â Because of these optics, many Blacks feel that the party has absolutely no interest in Blacks being involved in their events on any level. Republicans and Blacks agree on the need to address the high unemployment within our community.
According to early pollingÂ figures, Black participation in this yearâs midterm was 12 percent, Â down slightly from 13 percent in 2010.Â Eighty-nine percent of Blacks voted for Democratic congressional candidates and 10 percent voted for Republicans. This yearâs figures match the 2010 midterm figures for Democrats and represents a slight increase in support for Republicans, up from 9 percent in 2010 to 10 percent in 2014.
