Angela Rye

The news media’s race-baiting and false racist narrative has led to unintended consequences.

In the video below, CNN commentator Angela Rye was shouted down when she suggested removing statues of former presidents who were slave owners.

Angela made the suggestion 2 days after President Donald Trump said the removal of Confederate statues would lead to targeting statues of former presidents who were slave owners.

During an appearance on CNN this week, Angela argued that slaves “weren’t deemed human beings” by George Washington, who ruthlessly pursued a runaway female slave because she escaped without his permission.

When Angela was rudely interrupted by another CNN contributor, she said she drew no distinction between slave owner Washington and non-slave owner Robert E. Lee.

“This country was built upon a very violent past that resulted in death and the raping and the killing of my ancestors. So I’m not going to say that it’s OK for a Robert E. Lee and not a George Washington. We need to call it what is,” she said.

Several high profile black leaders also went off script and called for the removal of sacred monuments to slave owners George Washington and Thomas Jefferson that are not on the approved list.

The Rev. Al Sharpton put out the call on his popular radio show to stop using tax dollars on statues of Washington and Jefferson, but the leftist media mocked and laughed at Sharpton on Thursday.

The news media is uncomfortable with this new narrative because, for all of their race-baiting and false outrage, they do not want to acknowledge their racist past.

As an example of the left’s hypocrisy, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer provided a list of hundreds of confederate statues around the country that he deemed offensive. The list did not include slave owners.

As usual, CNN and other liberal media outlets want to control the narrative and decide for us what we should all be angry about.

    I don’t think that’s the point removing them is a long shot and likely will not happen in this lifetime, however it does force the issue of race in the spotlight and this country finally has too look it at.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yes Trump’s presidency has ripped the veil off racist America.

  • JV

    Speaking strictly on confederate statues: At issue is the symbolism involved. Many confederate statues were erected in the South and elsewhere to further “The Cause” of the confederacy, and so where more scare tactics than a reflection of history. This is another “on both sides” argument designed to deflect from shaking hands with hate groups.
    Yes, erasing history is bad, but there’s a way preserve history respectfully.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    They are missing the forest for the trees.

    Let’s discuss racism rather than the damn statues.

    Sterilize American history?

    No friend American history has always been sanitized and whites and white butt kissers like you want to keep it that way but not discussing the dark side of American history.

    When have the so-called Confederacy lovers discussed the institution of slavery?

  • Kanyade

    true this. even the most “liberal” of WYTs won’t go for that because Washington/Jefferson, etc. represent the “true” birth of a nation.

  • Phillybruh

    Race has always been brushed to the side like we’ll get to that later, hoping the problems caused by not dealing with it, will fix it self. White people want to act like their head start is deserved and when that is called into question they go mum and deflect. I understand what Sharpton and Rye are doing, the President deflected and they simply said, maybe they should be removed.

    I just dont see it happening. Not to mention they would basically have to IDK close the UofVA (which is located in Charlottesville) bc Jefferson founded it. change the names of all of the colleges named after Washington AND jefferson. Hell our currency would be impacted. It would be no end.

    Robert E Lee mattered to nobody but the south. I just dont see this happening and setting off a domino effect. They barking up the wrong tree.

    A straw man is a common form of argument and is an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent’s argument, while refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent. One who engages in this fallacy is said to be “attacking a straw man”.

    @Sandrarose – What is false narrative that blacks are standing up to and against.

    When the persons owned slaves, it was not good now or then. Slaves were treated less than humans. They were tortured, raped, brutalized, work in chains, slept in poor conditions and killed. (This is small and gentle way to talk about it)

    As an Independent,I’m so sick of these buffoons and what I hate most is that “they and their ignant followers’ act as if these race baiting pimps speak for ALL Black people…

    These statues have been up for centuries including during Democratic administrations,so why weren’t they concerned about those statues then? Why didn’t they require their boy Obama to remove these statues,since they consider that half White man a Black man?

    Here’s my thing.Whether you agree with these statues or not is important to me.My issue is with the Democrats throwing all kinds if fits,just because they LOST.They are such sore losers.I’m more concerned about ANTIFA and their need to FORCE people into believing as they believe……

    I don’t think you can intervene with gang violence. These gang members are just as ruthless as these drug cartels. Trying to do anything to stop them will guarantee you a space in the morgue. The cartels are even worse from what I hear. Just avoid them if you want to keep living.

    Okay, so how is removing statues going to solve any of today’s problems???? I’m not trying to argue, but putting up or taking down statues won’t solve anything.

Sad. Have a nice afternoon. I’m hungry!!

  • Phillybruh

    All you see is the statues. So you won’t get the meaning behind removing them. One town decided that they wanted to remove a statue. And because some idiots wanted to protest this towns decisions its caused other cities and towns to do the same so to just avoid the mess that happened on Friday and Saturday. Again it is not the statue, its what the statue represents.

  • Elevated Soul

    Understand that “Slavery” is the reason why so many Blacks are “sick” due to the slave mentality.In slavery everything was taken from Black people,from our original names/ origin and to some degree our ESSENCE but that was WRITTEN….

    This stuff right here is just Democrats being their usual spiteful and petty selves, Taking down all of the statues won’t do shyttt to better the Black Condition….The only thing this does is strengthen the numbers for the Klan seen as well as those unseen.

  • NicoleZee

    Like hell! Won’t be me, I enjoy living. No way! I just don’t get involved. After the hell I went through overseas after getting robbed in Colombia, only to find out that technically I should have been kidnapped, raped, killed, or sold, I’m good. If these crazy folks want to fight with cartels and gangs, go right ahead. My son’s father is Mexican, he’s told me stories of how the cartels in Mexico really get down. That shit is no laughing matter. They are ruthless, and if you get in their way, you will end up dead like many. No thanks!

SEE THE PROBLEM IS these folks where hailed as heros and they skipped over the facts in history class that these people BEAT RAPED, KIDNAPPED, MURDERED , TORTURED, AND OWNED OTHER HUMAN BEINGS!! For that FACT alone they should not be celebrated or rewarded with statues!! Put all that shi* in history books and museums and let those folks who want to see it so bad go to the museum for it or open a book and read about it!!

  • A D N

    It is more extensive than being in a field picking cotton and being beat or killed for not doing so. It’s more than being captured, sold, boarded on a ship in inhumane conditions for months. It’s more than being raped, molested, mentally and emotionally abused by people you have no idea of what they were speaking. It’s more than mothers losing their kids before their eyes to be “sold” because they would make good slaves to other people. It’s more than losing limbs because you “protested” against being enslaved… Do you know what it is? It is validating and placing value upon how a whole race was created here in America and for centuries have trying to overcome the struggle created by slavery. The last thing a wife wants to hear her husband say after he hurt her, is…GET OVER IT. Yes, at some point you move on from it, but after a sincere apology and no resemblance of the action being repeated…then getting through it and then HEALED from it would be necessary. GET Over it sounds so insensitive and prolongs the healing process…and to add the KKK organizations and such adding to the length of total healing.

    If the statues really have little importance, then what’s the point of keeping them there? Why are groups of racists fighting to keep them installed? So….I should ignore the statues, because of other issues, while the ones fighting to keep them there, should focus on keeping them there and ignoring the issues you named? Statues are symbols of remembrance. Statues stand for something, which is why it was constructed. I, for one, do not want to pass a building, or enter a courthouse, or visit a park which upholds the views of an individual who wanted separation and division, and practiced it to the point of enslaving people or fighting to keep people slaved. If it doesn’t bother you, or you find it an unnecessary battle, then continue to fight the battles that you find most important, because I’m sure you are helping homeless, drug infested communities and etc. Let’s respectfully respect each other…

    The statues represent racism. They open the discussion to discussing the people who represented racism. People honor the statues because they wanted to keep separatism among the races. Sometimes it takes something as simple as a “statue” as a lead in to discuss bigger issues, or to really see the core of individuals. That is the greatest discovery…to see the “realness” of people’s views and mentality, especially in our elected leaders.

  • TheOwley

    So we are removing all statues from everywhere then. Mount Rushmore, Lincoln, everyone. This country has lost the plot.

Many blacks don’t know that democrats fought real hard to maintain the confederacy up until the 60’s yet they are very devoted to that party. You can make a parallel on everything. History good or bad is there as a reminder for what not to ever do again, not for glorification of the person or groups. OR, we need to remove names from all streets, buildings, etc, and name things animal and minerals. I think we’ve gone mad.

  • A D N

    That’s the purpose of them marching with the costumes and torches…to invoke fear and superiority, while positioning you to your knees physically, mentally and emotionally. You are strong, you are bold and they know it. Never fear them. Just be smart and make the right choices and decisions that will further your life. This is why we fight to remove the symbols they uphold.

  • Look@m3

    Hey its resourceful over there, but I doubt the Africans even want us there.

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly…..Yes in 2017,they are still slaves in the mentally.They are imprisoned by their mindset. In fact being Black to some degree is like being in a prison even if your mind is free,because most Blacks around you don’t possess a free mind and are intimidated and hateful toward anyone Black,that doesn’t dwell on their political plantation.

    There’s a pervasive madness that has taken the country, if not the world. I can’t put my finger on it. These days if a person extends to gift a bucket full of money to a recipient, that person will simply turn around and murder the giver. Something stinks and the world has the stench on it.

    Some do. However, after 400+ years in this land, our land, the land we built, toiled and soiled upon, the time, the tears and all the fears, the loss and the hope for a better day, all experienced by our forefathers (ancestors), no one will divert me somewhere else. This land is your land, this land is my land, from California…Either we will learn to live together (like parents tell fighting siblings) or we will continue to fight or kill each other until we do learn to live together, because both have ownership and claim to this land. It’s not their land. It’s our land.

  • Look@m3

    I get what you are saying….I get both sides actually. If none of this ever happened in VA and with the Pres. response I don’t think anyone would even think about moving those statues but now that it was brought to our attention I guess people are having “aha” moments. Its like when you have that moment when you realize you never thought of this before. I think this is one of those moments. This may be a quicker fix (removing statues) than trying to fix an already troubled community that lack effective fathers that play a vital role in the direction of their gang banging sons who commit the crime. Then you have to look at the moms who encourage their sons to gang bang (you’d be surprised) and this only a crumb of the problem….hate to say it but their is a sector of the black community that’s just ……..not getting it, don’t want to get it and will not get it. A sector.

  • Phillybruh

    There is that sector in each community, white, black or other. Pointing out the Black community just makes fits your narrative.

  • Look@m3

    Yup, you have a sector in the white community that breeds the hatred of blacks, etc …but yes that was the point since the original post was about the black community.

  • Post Nbn

    How about we all band together and cancel AT&T for charging too damn much, how about we have a media blackout day where nobody watches CNN or Fox or MSNBC and make their ratings crash….if all Americans started doing shit like that they would freak the fuck out…stop arguing about statues that have NO effect on your quality of life.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah,.. but that was a distraction. He didn’t want to deal with the real issue of why he was so hesitant to clearly come out against the neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups at the root of the whole demonstration from last week. He was clearly pulling his punches… didn’t want to criticize them too hard.

  • Dreadboi

    Ask yourself has the Democrats views about blacks actually changed?? Cause from what I see they still see you as second and sometimes and in some eyes third class citizens akin to those coming from a third world cesspool of a country. Blacks working themselves to death but have nothing to past along to future generations except a cycle of proverty,hopelessness all the while the “white man” continues to rape your culture,your community,and people of diginty..
    As far as policies goes every city ran by a democratic council is in the gutter,has yet to advance the cause of black folks but yet those that run will tell you to keep voting them in office so they can continue to “fight” for you all the while and in your face lie and stab you in the back.
    If you think tearing down statues will make your life change the day after your sadly mistaken and would’ve been better off leaving them up..

    Because Trump’s position shone the light that these groups still exist.

Their strength has always been their ability to survive and grow. We need to take away their ability to exist.

  • NicoleZee

    I never said the statues were not important or important, my point was that there are more important issues at hand. Removing statues is not going to bring back children that have died, or give women their lives back after being raped, nor is it going to help families that grieve the loss of loved ones. People are being passionate about statues, pieces of stone, when people and their families are brutalized every hour of the day. If a statue is important to you, then cool, but I could not care less. A piece of stone is not going to help me feel better because I have been the victim of crime a few times and I did lose a child many many years ago. So I don’t give two shits about removing a statue because it will not ease my pain or anyone else’s. If people are so disappointed in their country, then leave, period, but I bet they won’t now will they???!!! Have a lovely afternoon and a good weekend.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    CW:They can grind those statues into pixie dust, but the generational ignorance, poverty, and systemic violence plaguing the black community, will remain.

    Just like the drug addiction,generational poverty and systemic violence plaguing Appalachia and trailer parks will remain.

  • NicoleZee

    The statues have been there ALL THESE YEARS and people are just NOW wanting to complain and remove them??? Makes no sense. If it was that big of a deal, then why not remove them when they first went up??? Albert Einstein said it best:

    None of the black people that I know, are criminals. So, no, not all black are committing crimes. However, in Chicago, the majority of violent crimes are committed by blacks and perpetrated against black victims.

  • A D N

    The reason you aren’t in a slave field picking cotton is because of many whites who stood up and against slavery, by listening to blacks moan about the injustices of being a cotton picking slave. I had to apologize to my 4 year old cousin because I made a comment to her about blacks, whites and slavery and that whites were the cause of slavery. We can no longer blame a whole race because of what many were involved in the slave trade and keeping blacks and some other races enslaved. As to the democrat/republican/independent/liberal/black/white/straight/gay/transgender/male/female/poor/rich/up/down/left/right/keepthestatue/removethestatue/impeachTrump/praiseTrump/BLM/Alllivesmatter…whatever the separation or differences or sides we take, one day, we all going to realize, the stupidity we practiced and the ideas to prolong living peacefully together, was not worth the time. However, before we get there, the one thing we should try to understand is everyone hurts and everyone’s opinion matter and there should be compromise on both sides. I want the statues removed, but I am willing to support civil war museums, not paid for with tax dollars to exist. But to openly have a symbol of individuals who supported slavery, (and they lost the war), goes against my beliefs. Because if I passed that individual (the statue of the person who is honored), I would be either taken to a field to work, told to not look at them in the eye and beaten or threaten with death for doing so, or had to praise them for their superiority over me based on their skin tone. To tell me, I should ignore the statues on public ground and focus on something else like homelessness, or wars over the oceans and seas, my question would be why aren’t you more affected by the representation of the statues which affect the homelessness or wars over seas or oceans…because they are intertwined.

    We had housing projects, which were initially created for poor white immigrants. As time went by, the white immigrants moved on and blacks moved in. Most of the projects have been torn down.

    A few years ago, someone did a news story questioning where poor whites live in Chicago. Using info gathered from social services programs, it was determined that most of the poor whites from Chicago, have relatives who live in middle class suburbs and typically stay with those family members during hardships.

  • A D N

    OK, you were clear in your feelings toward the subject on removing or leaving the statues/stones because it would not change how you experienced life’s situations. I get it and receive YOUR opinion. However, there is another side, which I pointed out, which is directly opposite of your opinion…MY opinion. I, for the same reasons you name, do feel it will ease my pain, will make me feel better, think the stones represent more than just figures of rocks. I see the statues as daily reminders of the pain the people represented and fought against/ such as freedom and equality for all. You see, blacks have been experiencing hardships since the beginning of this country based on skin tone, hair texture. This unnecessary battle joins discrimination of all kinds, yet, it’s the longest for this country. Yes, there are other concerns this country and world face, and yes, I am concern and active, very active since a young girl. I’m an older woman, and still fighting the cause of injustices and discrimination while voicing the importance of equality for all. In that fight, is against what the statues represent, rather than what the statue is made of. In that fight represents where the statues stand (in public places) rather than the carving of the stone. In that fight exist the reason and background of the statues for which I am against. But just like MLK and other warriors in a battle, I too, will continue to fight, if I have to do it alone. However, thankfully, for those of us who fight a cause, so you all who choose to dispute or challenge the reasons or divert the attention somewhere, will continue to enjoy the fruit of our labor. There is a reason we fight, and it’s never just to fight, but to change things. And yes, slowly, we have changed things in OUR country, which we share with those who agree or disagree. It’s called America, and there’s no need to move…we’re a melting pot of differences which includes opinions, but should not include prejudices. ON my way to the store. Hopefully, I don’t get hung or beat by those who admire the statues of those who hung and beat those who just wanted to go to the store…

  • OP2

    It’s not a slippery slope. School leaders in Countries from the middle east were tearing up & burning American whitewashed history books because they who knew the historical truth vs the big white lies to deceive; coverup with the goal of manipulating perceptions of children & adults. -the rest of the world have finally snapped out of the twilight & awaken to facts about the efforts it took to mislead people.

    Any book based on lies is not facts; therefore, cannot be considered History. -parents & taxpayers need to take a stand against those peddling & selling worthless whitewashed lies & omitted truths or facts as History. Why are students time being wasted on such BS?

  • hottlanta

    Wow you sat next to a white murderer. What do you want a cookie. I am too intelligent to buy into your BS because you are trying to make white folks look good. You can stop because you sat next to a murderer and if you go to Barnes & Nobles and get the coffee table book on worlds worst criminals white folks are all up in there. You sitting next to Jeffrey Dahmer but yet you calling black men criminals. Don’t make me laugh. You wasn’t afraid of Jeffrey but you are afraid of black men. Go somewhere with that mess. Chicago crime was cool as long as Al Capone/Frank Nitty was running things and not Chicago crime is being done by black folks it ain’t cool. Do Chicago have any your guides to show where Frank and Al lived. They making all kinds of money off their crimes but make no money off black people crimes. Can’t have it both ways. Let’s talk about white on white crime.

    I waiting to see is any good white Republican gonna bring this up this they like black folks so much. Wouldn’t that be funny when OJ get outta jail for killing a white woman and a white woman goes to jail for the murder of a black young man. Chile Home Depot will run outta tikka torches.

  • OP2

    Jehovah considered such idolatry or worshipping false gods. However, people who actually took a stand to save & change lives for the better deserve to recognized and cemented as for memory to tell history to future generations unlike those who invaded the land of others for greed & power by murdering, r@ping, stealing & enslaving. Wealth is often gained off the blood, sweat & tears of sweatshops or enslaving others & using for-profit prisons as a form of cheap labor. The rest can be traced to wars with the goal of just taking over a country’s natural resources. -History Books should be based on truths not lies & the deliberate omissions of facts.

    Thank you for your human and polite response. You obviously have common sense and know how to have a discussion, unlike most on here. I wasn’t trying to offend anyone, I just don’t understand things sometimes, that’s all.

    If someone feels that taking down statues is important to them, or their family or their cause, then by all means, fight for what you believe in. I’m just confused on why no one was doing this when the statues first went up. There are statues and symbols all over the world that have meanings we may disagree with, but they have been there for decades or even centuries, so why are some people complaining now??? That’s the part I’m trying to understand the most. But if making these types of changes will make things better in some way, then fine. I just don’t get it completely and I still feel like there are bigger issues to fight for, not that this issue is not important. I’m just not willing to put myself in harm’s way or to risk my freedom for anyone other than my child. For him, I’d do anything to protect him.

  • A D N

    There were some on the side of the fight, and fought hard for all the things we enjoy today. There is power in numbers and power in awareness. Those of us who continue to battle against those who still want us to feel inferior while promoting their supposedly superiority (through statues also), have continuously approached our elected officials to remove statues and flags that celebrate or recognize figures which honor those who wanted things (we blacks) to remain the same. What was the “same”…slavery and the ability to keep earning money through the means of slavery. The Civil War was due to the South wanting to continue trading (cotton and other resources) with other countries. The North wanted a piece of the trade (of course money). The two sides disagreed and went to war. Now, where it gets tricky are the Generals who fought for the South, wanted to continue earning money. They gained money through the use of slaves, picking the resources such as cotton. President Lincoln decided to end slavery to stop the South ability to gain money. So, of course the South lost the war, and over the past 100 or so years figures (statues and symbols) erected in remembrance of their fight for liberty (their liberty to fight for their independence to do things the way they wanted. So, yes, it is very important to me to end the right of celebrating and honoring those who want to keep my people slave. Because if they honor those and their stance, then what are they really thinking or desiring?

    Why is there a demand for statues to be removed? Why would any black person put that much energy for a ‘statue’ to be removed? I ask this because if people really think that racism will disappear with the elimination of all of these ‘offensive’ statues, then they’re delusional. And where does this stop exactly? Are black people going to stop spending/accepting money because the Presidents on them owned slaves too? Yeah right! Stop putting unnecessary power on these things that really don’t matter. A statue doesn’t dictate my life, well-being nor has it stopped me from achieving success in business, family, etc. Idol worship is condemned in the Bible anyway, so I seriously ask why is anyone putting so much credence in a statue or its removal?

    Most white people don’t want to hear the truth about race because they know that they benefit from an unfair system skewed toward them. It makes them uncomfortable.

    Trump’s approval rating was no where near it’s current 35% when any of those special elections were held, if it had been Democrats would have won at least two of them.

    So just give up?

    No the problem is that black people got comfortable and didn’t keep pushing and voting

    Now conservatives are going to use the excuse of periodic voting to purge people from the voter rolls.

    You have a great weekend.

    It’s true that they have been around for a long time but these people are truly desperate because they believe the lies from people like Richard Spencer that their very existence is threatened.

    Now instead of wearing hoods to hide their faces they are bold enough to show their faces because they don’t believe that have anything to lose.

    I never compared myself or anyone who fought the Nazis–that was your special strawman.

    There’s an old saying that silence gives consent.

    Now think about that.

  • Waya Hedia

    Yeah.. no one should ever wear hoods or masks in public. lol. Unfortunately you don’t have the right to consent or not. As long as they’re entitled to free speech, it really isn’t your problem. Unless you are physically attacked. Being fascists while attempting to rout out fascism.. well, that ain’t gonna work at all.
    Now think about that.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And I am entitled to the same free speech to call them what they are.

    You seem to believe that free speech is only for white supremacists to spread their bile.

  • Waya Hedia

    Exactly. But you’re NOT entitled to assault them.

    “You seem to believe that free speech is only for white supremacists to spread their bile”
    That is solely due to your lack of perception and racist tunnel vision. Work on that.

    I just want people to stop believing in these politicians Dems or Repubs giving them false hope. Jehovah is the only one who can end racism and bring equality to people. Jehovah tells us to put trust in him not man black or white, yellow purple etc.

  • Elevated Soul

    An Asian man that I know told me <"politics is not a priority for them"…

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    False hope?

    Like Trump and Republicans have been giving white folks for the last 50 years that they will resume their status of cultural and economic dominance?

    No black person believes that racism will ever disappear from America but it should bother people that there are groups who feel embolden enough to march without their faces disguised and attack a church with torches.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Again you’re creating a strawman out of whole cloth but you know that.

    How are you conflating showing up to counter protest and physical assault because I never said that violence wasn’t permissible.

    It’s you who is projecting.

  • Waya Hedia

    I wasn’t talking about ‘you’. I was speaking in general terms. The rights you are talking about here apply to everyone.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Who said that racists didn’t have the right to speak their (warped) minds?

  • MsPam

    Stop worrying about white folks! When Jehovah sends his son Jesus back nothing will matter. The wicked will be destroyed for what they did and didn’t do. Jehovah god gave us Ten Commandments some of us can’t even do one of them. Go get a bible a read the book of revelations ( the last chapter) it describes everything that is happening in the world today. It was forewarned. Next time the Jehovah Witnesses come to your door answer it (instead of pretending your not home) they will explain it to you!

    Don’t forget a fornicator too! Did he ever divorce his wife?! Running around here with a girlfriend who can’t wait for the will to be read!????

    Democrat deflection issue….. When a Democrat try to tell you that blacks were doing good under Obama please see article about the kids by US World Reports published at the end of 2015.

    Here is the biggest issue regarding race education that was soooo bad during the Obama years the media avoided it completely but I found the article…
    that Democrats love to ignore they are the true disgrace…

    https://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2015/12/11/african-american-students-lagging-far-behind

    Yes but lets Focus on statues and make Republicans denounce the hate group that they dont belong too.
    When will Democrats denounce their racism? Oh neva

  • Mark mcharm

    So let’s see immigration or racist take your pick ?? she could not be any worst than the inexperienced troll who did not want the job anyway.

  • EMILY POST

    She was for illegal immigration did not know what the hell she was talking about but was just on television yapping. She is pretty but thats all I got and great if you need a younger female black talking head on television pushing out all the talking points for the Democratic party okay…

  • Rarechild93

    Removing a statue isn’t going to change a damed thing! It’s STILL going to be our history as american negros! I don’t understand ALL this effort and lip popping because most blacks STILL don’t get the bigger picture!! We as black america ARE STILL in a world of trouble. These ghettos…welfare lifers…kids that refuse to go to school or get an education of any kind…black on black crime in astronomical proportions…won’t get or apply for a decent job ANYWHERE…self hate…and last but not least…the blatant disrespect we have for one another….especially the elders. Now, I don’t profess to know it all… But I do know this for a fact… We as a nation of negros need to understand YESTERDAY that other issues THAT ARE PERTINENT to our survival as a people NEED far MORE attention that the upending of a few Confederate statues!!!! Negros in motion yet are not going anywhere!!!. #IJS???????

  • Rarechild93

    WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer afford to pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump’s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.
    Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.
    The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it has not relented in the first seven months of the administration. Agents must protect Trump – who has traveled almost every weekend to his properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia – and his adult children whose business trips and vacations have taken them across the country and overseas. – Make America great again huh ?
