Conservative pundit and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said progressive policies have halted progress in the black community and warned that the GOP needs to ensure that they have a plan to address this lack of progress after likely wins in midterm elections Tuesday.
Speaking on the Hannity Show in a recent Fox News interview Carson addressed comments made by economist Ben Stein who charged that President Barack Obama is the "most racist president" America has ever seen.
Stein argued in a clip from an earlier interview on Fox News that: "More people are on food stamps than ever. More people are getting welfare than ever. What cuts are they talking about? More people are getting government subsidized healthcare than ever. What cuts are they talking about? It's all a way to racialize voting in this country. This president is the most racist president there has ever been in America. He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans. Anyone who investigates it even a little bit knows it's hogwash." more >>
Actor, economist and conservative political pundit Ben Stein recently ripped into President Barack Obama calling him America's "most racist president" for engaging in racial politics to get the black vote.
In a Fox News interview on Monday, Stein was asked to comment on a poll that highlighted that the economy was the most important concern of voters going into the midterm elections Tuesday, Stein disagreed with the poll and charged that Obama and the White House had made the elections about race.
"With all due respect, I disagree with your poll," said Stein. "I think [the economy] is what people are saying is their most important issue, but I think what the White House is doing is trying to racialize all politics; and they're especially trying to tell the African-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy, and that's just a complete lie." more >>
Christians prompted by churches and a host of faith-based advocacy organizations to exercise their right to vote and help shape America's culture and future, are expected to flood the polls in the name of Jesus Tuesday.
From abortion to racial justice, Christians prompted by churches and a host of faith-based advocacy organizations to exercise their right to vote and help shape America's culture and future, are expected to flood the polls in the name of Jesus and a long list of other causes Tuesday.
"We wanted to encourage our people to register to vote and to vote. We believe that voting is a Christian responsibility in the government that we live in. We are the government. We can't blame the country's problems on someone else except for ourselves," said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel in an interview with The Christian Post Monday. more >>
Most pundits and pollsters expect the Republican Party to do well in Tuesday's midterm elections. The Democratic Party may outperform expectations, however, for these three reasons.
1. Democrats raised and spent a lot of money, and spent it well.
In overall campaign spending, Republicans have done better than Democrats. Democrats, however, have kept the spending race close. Plus, the Republican advantage is mostly in House races, where the outcome is more certain, than in the races that will determine which party controls the Senate. And, Democratic candidates in several tight races have spent their campaign funds more wisely than their Republican challengers. more >>
The Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans has accused the Milford School District in Connecticut of racism for banning a 7-year-old Nigerian-American girl from attending class on suspicion of Ebola, since she had traveled to Nigeria earlier this month. The school, which was sued by the father of the girl, argued that it acted in the best interest of its students and staff.
"Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans will not take this escalation of ignorance and racism regarding Ebola and Nigerian-Americans lying low," said Laolu Akande, executive director of CANAN, in a press release on Wednesday.
"We are appalled that a school headed by otherwise responsible educators can succumb to unsubstantiated medical fears and chose to respond with discrimination and denial of a young girl's right to education." more >>
Apparently, there's a manual on "how to act black" floating around among black Americans and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is guilty of not reading it. In the spirit of full disclosure, neither have I. This hate is leveled by blacks towards other blacks, who speak standard, not broken, English and are or either aspire to be educated and successful.
Wilson's "blackish" backlash was reported by Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, who said he spoke with some of the Seahawks' black players who whined Wilson didn't act black enough and was too chummy with the team's management. Sounds like jealousy to me. Charles Barkley responded to this nonsense in a radio interview.
"Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we're never going to be successful not because of white people but because of other black people. When you're black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people." more >>
