Why Is President Trump’s Only Senior Black Staffer a Democrat?

Why Is President Trump’s Only Senior Black Staffer a Democrat?

. By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Republicans haven’t shown any serious efforts of making Blacks an integral part of their party since the Nixon Administration of the 60s and 70s. As former Nixon speechwriter, Pat Buchanan stated in one of his columns, “In 1956, as vice president, Nixon went to Harlem to declare, “America […]

The Republican Party and the Hidden Figures on Capitol Hill

The Republican Party and the Hidden Figures on Capitol Hill

. By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) As we prepare to celebrate the beginning of Black History Month this week, the Republican Party continues to show its ineptness in cultivating “real” relationships with the Black community. They continue to hire and highlight Black Democrats at the expense of Black Republicans. There is not one Black […]

Trump Doesn’t Need Mainstream Media and They’re Mad as Hell

. By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) As I reflected on President Trump’s inauguration last week, I can’t help but think upon one of my favorite quotes by former British Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill.

Senator Jeff Sessions and Black Liberals’ Moral Arc of Hypocrisy

. By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Last week, I was forced to call out the radical liberal group the NAACP, or as l like to call them the “National Association for the Advancement of Certain People.” Obviously, that column didn’t get through to the members of the Congressional “Democratic” Black Caucus (CBC). Many of […]

The NAACP Stoops to New Low with Jeff Sessions Sit-In Protest

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Once again, the radical liberal National Association for the Advancement of “Certain” People (NAACP) has proven that Blacks can indeed sellout their own people and even be extremely hypocritical. The NAACP’s perpetual promotion to the Black community of radical Democratic policies, in recent years, has caused more harm to […]

It’s Time for African and Caribbean Leaders to Grow Up

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) During the holidays, I had several frantic conversations with diplomats from Africa and the Caribbean.

Does the Congressional Black Caucus Really Care about Black People?

Does the Congressional Black Caucus Really Care about Black People?

In last week’s column, I discussed the hypocrisy running rampant within the Democratic Party when it comes to the hiring of Black staffers. I must have struck a serious nerve, because I received an anonymous email from someone with seemingly high-level Democratic credentials that was most surprising.

Democrats Refuse to Hire Blacks for Top Jobs in the U.S. Senate

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “one of the shameful tragedies [of our nation] is that eleven o’clock on Sunday morning is one of the most segregated hours, if not the most segregated hour in Christian America.” King referred to the segregation within American churches on Sunday […]

Here are Six Black Republicans that Trump Should Be Talking to about Cabinet Positions

. By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) President-elect Donald Trump owes the Black community absolutely nothing. Let me repeat that: HE OWES US NOTHING! Blacks gave Trump just 8 percent of their vote and Hillary Clinton won 88 percent; Clinton’s share of Black voters was considerably lower than Obama’s 93 percent in 2008 and 96 […]
