Read More

Nate Parker slammed the media coverage of the rape controversy surrounding him in a new interview with Steve Harvey, accusing those who were reporting on the rape charges from 17 years ago of not caring about anyone involved. “What are these journalists trying to do? Do they care about anyone involved? Do they care about what we’ve been talking about?” Parker asked before adding, “Are we in the business of headlines…

Insiders: Pence outclassed Trump

Read More

Mike Pence didn’t just defeat Tim Kaine in their only debate — he also outshined Donald Trump. A majority of the battleground-state insiders who comprise The POLITICO Caucus gave Pence the edge over Kaine in their vice presidential debate at Virginia’s Longwood University on Tuesday night: 60 percent of all insiders, including 96 percent of Republicans and 21 percent of Democrats. But the Pence-vs.-Trump comparison was unanimous: Each and every…

House Republicans: Trump actually not so toxic

Read More

House Republicans spent all summer sweating that Donald Trump’s chaotic campaign would cost them dearly in November, and maybe even open a path for Democrats to seize control of the chamber. But five weeks before Election Day, those fears have largely subsided: Republicans are still pegged to lose seats, but top party strategists are increasingly bullish that a cascade of defeats isn’t at hand. There’s still time for that to…

5 takeaways from the debate that didn’t matter

Read More

The first and only vice-presidential debate of 2016 was less a game-changer than a channel-changer, a snippy and probably inconsequential 90 minutes marginally won by Mike Pence – a confident, slightly smarmy debater very much in the mold of those calculating Washington, D.C., politicians who are destroying America. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s more voluble running mate, didn’t flop but he was visibly less comfortable than the square-jawed Pence, frequently interrupting…

Will black Bernie supporters come around for Clinton in November?

Read More

Self-proclaimed “political geek” Ray Shawn McKinnon wanted to witness Bernie Sanders become the Democratic presidential nominee. “Hillary was condescending,” McKinnon told theGrio.com in an interview. “[It was] in a sense — you need me, I need you type of thing, and Bernie was like not me – us — and that was real.” Despite his reservations, McKinnon, a young African-American pastor in Charlotte, North Carolina, is still casting his ballot for Clinton…

French top court to rule on racial profiling for first time

Read More

PARIS (AP) — A lawyer who claims French police carried out unjustified identity checks on 13 black and Arab men based only on their racial profiles asked the country’s highest court Tuesday to “make history” and rule for the first time that officers acted illegally.

Can Diddy spark other black celebrities to donate to HBCUs?

Read More

As October rolls around, we are nearing a very popular time in the African American community- homecoming season. From Howard to FAMU to Spelman and Morehouse, it’s consistently been known as one of the most epic experiences for HBCU students, alum and visitors. But what happens during these weekend celebrations isn’t always the case for the remainder of the school year. For nearly 200 hundred years, HBCUs have been a mainstay in the African-American community, providing…
