We Don’t Need Permission From Democrats To Demand Reparations

AFRICANGLOBE - A recent Gallup poll shows 73 percent of Black Americans support reparations in the form of cash payments to the descendants of slaves – the highest level of Black pro-reparations sentiment ever recorded in a national survey. The surge in Black support for reparations is useful to the Black struggle only if Black Americans themselves are willing to (a) define the issue and formulate demands accordingly and (b) mobilize our people around those demands.

The Cracker Jack – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - One day you’ll stop falling for the political BS and you’ll declare that you’re tired of being misled, bamboozled, tricked and trapped by the political cracker jack!

Why Is Joe Biden So Staunchly Against Reparations For Black People?

AFRICANGLOBE - For the first time in decades, reparations are part of the mainstream political debate. Top-tier Democratic presidential candidates, including Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, have discussed the need to address the historic evil of slavery and the massive wealth gap caused by bondage and systemic racism. While the specifics of how much would be provided to whom, and how that might work, are usually left vague, there is widespread support among the 2020 contenders for at least a serious look at making reparations a reality.

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.

In The Presidential Election Black Voters Are Kingmakers: No Tangibles No...

AFRICANGLOBE - An astonishing spectacle of the 2016 election aftermath is the false account of why Trump won. The accepted wisdom is that Trump succeeded in awakening a popular movement of anger and frustration among white, blue-collar, less educated, mostly male, voters. This story is mostly wrong. Trump did not win because he was more attractive to this base of white voters. He won because Hillary Clinton was less attractive to the traditional Democratic base of Black voters.

Gay Rights Will Be Joe Biden’s Number One Priority Not Reparations

AFRICANGLOBE - Democratic presidential candidate and father of mass incarceration, Joe Biden, declared Saturday that the Equality Act would be his top legislative priority, an effort to enshrine LGBTQ protections into the nation's labor and civil rights laws.

Joe Biden Orchestrated One Of The Worst Things That Ever Happened...

AFRICANGLOBE - As Joe Biden continues to defend his 1994 Crime Bill, a video has resurfaced of Rep Bobby Rush calling it the worst thing to happen to the Black community in 50 years. The 1994 Crime Bill, which was drafted by Biden, has been a shadow on his campaign since he announced he was running for president last month. While former President Bill Clinton, who signed the bill into law when he was president, has walked back on his support in recent years, Biden has not wavered.

Keep Fighting: Reparations For Black People Is Closer Than You Think

AFRICANGLOBE - The issue of reparations for Black Americans is back in the news, with a number of candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination doing a u-turn and giving lip service to the idea in one form or another. The situation of Black people had been addressed in the Kerner Commission empaneled by President Lyndon Johnson in the aftermath of a number of major urban riots in the late 1960s. Memorably, the commission concluded that “Our nation is moving toward two societies, one Black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “white racism” was the cause.

Forget HR40 Only Reparations Can Shrink The Racial Wealth Gap

AFRICANGLOBE - The racial wealth gap is the result of decades, even centuries of systematic economic barriers to Black America's economic progress . Starting with slavery to the Jim Crow era to today’s mass incarceration, U.S. policy has held back Black Americans and denied them an equal opportunity for centuries. The factors contributing to the racial wealth gap are multitude and their interplay is complex and differs from community to community, from time period to time period. It is virtually impossible to identify one single leading cause for the massive racial wealth gap.

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.

Racist Joe Biden Defends 1994 Crime Bill That Mass Incarcerated Black...

AFRICANGLOBE - Former vice president Joe Biden wrapped up his first campaign swing in New Hampshire on Tuesday with a defense of his 1994 crime bill, which has since then been criticized for leading to mass incarceration, particularly of Black Americans.

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.

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.

Political Zombies – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - “Zombies no go unless you tell him to go, zombies no come unless you tell him to come”.Political zombies think everybody on Capitol Hill is more important than the voters in their political districts.
