Donald Trump has said on numerous occasions he is going to do well with African-American voters in the general election. On Wednesday’s edition of NewsOne Now, Corrogan Vaughn, a Maryland GOP delegate, and James Evans, a Republican delegate from Utah, spoke with Roland Martin about why they have decided to throw their support behind Trump. Vaughn explained he is […]
While Donald Trump lavished praise on a Black supporter earlier this month, calling him “my African-American,” most Republicans of color would not call him “my White” presidential candidate. An estimated 94 percent of Black voters see the presumptive Republican presidential nominee negatively, as do 89 percent of Latinos, writes the Huffington Post, citing a Washington Post/ABC survey released Wednesday.

Is the GOP actually doing things that would resonate with the Black community, and just don’t want to tell us about it? That may be the case with mandatory sentencing laws, which via the war on drugs, disproportionately affect African Americans. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), who has criticized the Civil Rights Act of 1964, for […]
In his latest piece, GOP political consultant Raynard Jackson compares the cognitive dissonance of the “Black elite” in Spike Lee’s classic 1988 film, “School Daze,” to President Barack Obama’s seeming discomfort with speaking unreservedly about the plight of working-class Black Americans. Taking direct aim at those Black leaders who never challenge the POTUS, Jackson opines that these […]

Last week at the GOP’s Super Tuesday primaries, the battle for the presidential nomination raged on among candidates Mitt Romney (pictured left), Newt Gingrich (middle), and Rick Santorum (right).
