As an African-American Democrat, I share the core values of my political party. That is why I am a Democrat. Like me, most African-American Democrats do not want to see the mass deportation of undocumented citizens and families broken up.

I had decided earlier in the week not to attend my city’s Women’s March. My reasoning was simple. You can’t spend 8 years idolizing First Lady Michelle Obama and then forget about her sisters. I took one look at the list of scheduled speakers and couldn’t help but notice the lack of Black women speakers.

It’s not missed on me that included in the silent majority of voters that made Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States were disenfranchised African-American voters of the Silent Generation.

The announcement of Harvey working with Trump caused a collective laughter in Black households to be sent from one end of the country to the other—and that’s a not a good thing.
Well known civil rights defense attorney and fiery radio host Nana Gyamfi caused quite a ruckus on Los Angeles airwaves Wednesday morning.
Phew! Angeleno’s concerned with the state of policing, police abuse, police misconduct, community and police relations and just overall common decency will never know how close they came to setting the clock back several decades.
