The Black Agenda: Is The Congressional Black Caucus Still Relevant?

AFRICANGLOBE - Normally, one could assume it would be the Congressional Black Caucus whose gerrymandered districts encompass the most impoverished urban areas in the country that would most likely advocate a Black Agenda.  But it’s difficult to understand what the Caucus does anymore. They certainly don’t stand behind Black unity.

Black Political And Community Leaders – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - The Black political and community leaders that you love are masquerading as Black shepherds feeding you, the Black sheep, to the wolves! I’m not going to call any names but look at who you are following. Is your life any different? Yes it is. It is worse! Your leaders aren’t leading you down the path of righteousness. They are leading you to the dope house, the poor house and the whore house! Follow the woman or man that has a plan to make our lives better, make our pockets fatter and make our minds clearer.

Obama’s Condescending Speech Telling Blacks That Not Voting For Hillary Is...

AFRICANGLOBE - President Obama gave his final speech to the Congressional Black Caucus gala on Saturday, in what turned out to be a condescending plea to the Black community to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton so his legacy could be continued. Mr. Obama said he would consider it a “personal insult” if African-American voters didn’t turn out for Mrs. Clinton and that all the progress the country has made over the last eight years, under his reign, was on the line.

Obama The Fake Malcolm X – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - President Barack Obama made quite a splash at a 2016 Congressional Black Caucus dinner. News reports say Obama gave his most fiery Presidential speech ever as he tried to fire up some political puppets before the upcoming fall elections. I say puppets because even if the President didn’t say a mumbling word, Black elected officials would probably vote for every Democrat anyway.

Black Power In Washington

AFRICANGLOBE - “The Congressional Black Caucus is gone,” said one Democratic congressional aide, referring to its support for Israel under Netanyahu.

Cowardly Black Caucus Ignores Israeli Apartheid

AFRICANGLOBE - Nobody celebrates victories against racism and apartheid a generation or two back more often and more lavishly than the Congressional Black Caucus. It’s something they must do constantly not just because some of those victories made their careers possible, but because apart from their own careers, they haven’t accomplished much in the last 40 years.

Are Black Politicians Becoming Irrelevant?

AFRICANGLOBE - This past weekend, the Congressional Black Caucus hosted its annual weekend extravaganza that included expensive dinners and lavish partying. Yet, Black politicians in the present day are standing by as the GOP and its right-wing zealots run amok in cahoots with local and state police departments.

Unmet Promises Undermining Liberal Black Vote?

AFRICANGLOBE - "The real reason that there's a lack of enthusiasm [among Black voters] is that the kinds of promises that have been made have been shown, now after nearly six years, to be false," "What the CBC plans to say to Black America is Don't pay attention to the fact that things have gotten worse while you've continued to support us. Don't pay attention to the fact that the very people that we want you to go out and support have been the very people that have hurt you most."

America Is A Political Candy Land – The Gantt Report

The Congressional Black Caucus Has No Conscience

AFRICANGLOBE - The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) describes itself as “the conscience of the U.S. Congress.” According to the dictionary, conscience is the inner sense of what is right or wrong in one’s conduct or motives. Notice that the root of the word conscience is the word “con,” which is exactly what the CBC has turned out to be.

These Black Politicians Just Sold You Out, But You Don’t Even...

How Black Politicians Sell Out To Big Business

AFRICANGLOBE - Ever wondered what the staffers of Congressional Black Caucus members do after their stints on Capitol Hill? The answer is they do the same thing most of their White colleagues do. They go to work for the big corporations that fund the careers of their former bosses.

Black Numbers Are Up In Congress, But Power Is Down

AFRICANGLOBE - When Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech 50 years ago this week, just five African-Americans held seats in Congress. There are 44 today. But those numbers mask a hard reality: Even with an African-American in the White House, Blacks arguably have less clout in Congress than they did in 1963.

Immigration Reform Will Devastate Black Community

Many studies have shown that African-Americans are disproportionately harmed by mass immigration and amnesty.
