Bernie, Biden And Trump – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - Sanders lost because he couldn’t bamboozle the strongest base in the Democratic Party, Black voters that soundly rejected his political ideas. The best you can get out of politics is a deal where everybody gets something but no one gets everything.

Mitch McConnell Says Electing Obama Was Reparations

AFRICANGLOBE - Mitch McConnell believes America made up for slavery by electing Barack Obama, and passing civil rights legislation -- though he sees no need to restore the Voting Rights Act, and calls efforts to expand voting rights a "half-baked, socialist proposal." If you've heard of "40 acres and a mule," then you know that the concept of America paying reparations for the enslavement of Black people is by no means a new idea. The concept has been discussed since 1865 when the promise to repay -- I use that term loosely -- former slaves was made by Union Gen. William T. Sherman and then backed by President Abraham Lincoln and Congress.

Divided Political Emotions – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - I kinda chuckled when one of Joe Biden’s communication hires struggled trying to explain Biden’s past support for legislation that turned  thousands of young Black men into long term penitentiary inmates.

Black Families Have A Dime For Every Dollar Held By Whites

AFRICANGLOBE - If you’re like me, every time you hear a news reporter or anchor talk about how great the nation’s economy is, you wonder what world they are living in. Certainly, these journalists are not referring to the ongoing struggle to make ends meet that so much of Black America faces. For every daily report of Wall Street trading, or rising corporate profits, you’re reminded that somebody else is doing just fine financially.

Old Drunken Joe Biden Is In For A Rude Awakening

AFRICANGLOBE - Joe Biden, the 76-year-old former Vice President and long-term Democratic Senator from Delaware, finally threw his hat into the ring for his party’s nomination for president. As the frontrunner in nearly every poll, in normal times Biden would have a relatively easy path to the nomination. But these are not normal times, and drunken Joe Biden is not a normal candidate.

Political Service And Political Trust – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - As a political professional, I am reluctant to endorse candidates, on any level, unless I really, really, really know who they are and how they may perform and produce if or when they are elected. More importantly, history is the best teacher. If a person lies before he or she runs for office, they will continue to lie after an election.

Getting Desperate: 2020 Democrats Vow To Sign Bill STUDYING Reparations

AFRICANGLOBE - One by one, the candidates answered yes -- some not for the first time. In this 2020 primary, the issue of reparations, which for decades existed only on the fringes of mainstream political debate, has emerged as a litmus test for Democrats vying for a shot at unseating President Donald Trump next year.

The United States Should And Must Pay Reparations To Black Americans

AFRICANGLOBE - The United States owes Black-Americans over $100 trillion in reparations, based on 222,505,049 hours of forced labor between 1619 and 1865, with a compounded interest of 6%. After the WW2, until now, Germany is sentenced to pay reparations even to grandchildren of the victims of the Jewish Holocaust. But when it comes to Black Americans broken analogues are made.

Yes, You Absolutely Can And Should Question Kamala Harris’ Blackness

AFRICANGLOBE - When Black people question Kamala’s Blackness they also invariably question the prevailing paradigm that anyone in America with just a tint of West African blood should and must be regarded as Black instead of the other. That is not Black essentialism. That is white essentialism.

Why Are Democratic Candidates Trying To Deny Black People Their Reparations?

AFRICANGLOBE - Slavery stripped Black Americans of the financial fruits of their labor and more for most of the country’s history. Jim Crow replaced chains of metal with ones forged of terror, most famously through lynchings, but also land theft. The contemporary form of bigotry’s financial toll is redlining, by which financial institutions withhold loans from Black neighborhoods.
