    Josh Barro ‏@jbarro 4h4 hours ago

    Related themes were in the prepared remarks, but the generalization of all blacks as poor and jobless was not.

    • eliihass says:

      Hopefully my people realize that Josh Barro does not give 2 sh*ts about black folks…that Josh Barro is just as racist – if not more so than Donald Trump…

      Let’s not even get it twisted…

      Many of these new faux-defenders of black folk and black votes, have never given a damn about us …and have in fact been a huge part of the not so stealth racism and hostility towards black folks ..the long persistent stuff that they all now conveniently suddenly pretend to abhor in Donald Trump…

      Josh Barro is no friend of black folks…Josh Barro is actually one of those rabidly pro-Clinton racist ‘libertarian-republican-faux-progressives’ who never bothered to hide their contempt for black folks in general…

      Josh Barro never gave a damn about black folks and was actually always incredibly condescending, contemptuous and visibly irritated by black folks and black issues in general..

      Calling out Trump – and only to aid Hillary – should not even be remotely considered or mistaken as the act of one who gives a damn about black folks or black issues otherwise …

      Please, please, don’t fall for the okey-doke..

      Our enemies enemy is still not our friend or ally…no matter how many tweets concerning black folks they suddenly start sending out…

      Josh Barro has never been on our side..and nothing has changed about that long obvious fact..

    Jeff Fecke @jkfecke
    Trump isn’t trying to appeal to Black voters. He’s trying to convince White conservatives that he isn’t *too* racist.

  7. rikyrah says:

    Purify @TheToast2016
    Erasing @ReignOfApril from #OscarsSoWhite panel is like you setting up shop in the hood & dissing black customers:

    • rikyrah says:

      PragmaticObotsUnite @PragObots
      Hol’ up! IIRC,Asian actors criticized @ReignOfApril about #OscarsSoWhite saying it wasn’t inclusive of them. Now they’re trying 2 co-opt it?

    • rikyrah says:

      And that was the ‘ B’ team!!!

      The announcer said the ‘finals’ team was back at the village ‘resting up’ for the final tomorrow.

      My mouth dropped open.
      I had no idea that the USA could switch out runners like that.

    • eliihass says:

      Tired of this selective, phony ‘sisterherhood’ that picks and chooses and rallies based entirely on establishment engineered preferences that ultimately elevates, propels and rallies for mediocre, cowardly, self-serving, ladder-climbing, self-promoting, MIA when the going gets tough, opportunistic political candidates who have been propped up and propelled by their political godfathers – and have nothing to show for all the vote for me I’m black when it suits their purposes campaigns.
      Where was this ‘sisterhood’ for Donna Edwards…? And that was in Debra Lee’s neck of the woods too…

      So sick and tired of this mess…

      Folks need to stop buying into and falling for this sham…

  10. He’s still saying someone pointed a gun at him. He’s still lying.

    • Liza says:

      This is not an apology. I doubt that he wrote it himself, but he clearly refuses to admit that his “behavior” included destruction of property and lying about being held up at gunpoint. He may be proud to “represent” his country but all that he and his buddies will be remembered for is reminding the world that the “Ugly American” is alive and well in 2016.

      And what do these fools use for a brain? I guess they forgot that surveillance cameras are everywhere, including Rio.

    • Liza says:

      Well, like I said, all we will get out of this in November is a head count of the number of white supremacist voters. From now until then all we’ve got is a freak show. And this goes on and on while the important, life and death issues are ignored.

    White supremacist stabs interracial couple after seeing them kiss at bar, police say

    “He tells them, ‘Yeah, I stabbed them. I’m a white supremacist,’” Lower said. “He begins talking about Donald Trump rallies and attacking people at the Black Lives Matter protest.”


    police said Rowe’s behavior grew stranger as officers tried to wrestle him into the back of a patrol car.

    “He tells them, ‘Yeah, I stabbed them. I’m a white supremacist,’” Lower said. “He begins talking about Donald Trump rallies and attacking people at the Black Lives Matter protest.”

    According to court documents obtained by the Olympian, Rowe, who was unconscious when police encountered him, had tattoos that read “skinhead,” “white power” and “hooligan.” One tattoo showed the Confederate flag.

    “This has all the hallmarks of a hate crime,” Deputy Prosecutor Joseph Wheeler said

    Study finds Latinos age at slower rate than other ethnicities

    In the quest to find the fountain of youth, scientists may one day look to Latinos to find the answer, as a new study shows they age at a slower rate than individuals of other ethnicities. The findings, published in Genome Biology, used several biomarkers to study changes linked to aging in the genome.

    “Latinos live longer than Caucasians, despite experiencing higher rates of diabetes and other diseases,” Steve Horvath, lead author and professor of human genetics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles, said in a news release. “Our study helps explain this by demonstrating that Latinos age more slowly at the molecular level.”

    The biomarkers evaluated included an “epigenetic clock” developed by Horvath that tracks an epigenetic shift linked to aging in the genome. Epigenetics is the study of changes to the DNA molecule that influence which genes are active but don’t alter the DNA sequence itself.

    The Clinton Foundation announced Thursday that it would no longer accept donations from corporations or foreign entities if Hillary Clinton is elected president.

    By Abby Phillip and Rosalind S. Helderman
    August 18 at 9:01 PM

    The decision comes amid mounting criticism of how the foundation operated during her tenure as secretary of state, potentially allowing donors to seek special access through her government post.

    Former president Bill Clinton also announced to staff Thursday that the final meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative would be held in September in New York City, regardless of the outcome of the election.

    A spokesman for the foundation confirmed the decisions, which were first reported by the Associated Press.

    • Liza says:

      Ha ha, yeah, for the duration of Hillary’s presidency, quid pro quo transactions between the Clintons and all other entities will be suspended. Unbelievable what these people get away with.

    Good Morning 😊, Everyone 😆

    • Ametia says:

      TGIF Everyone!

    • Good morning, everyone!

      Caroline! Caroline!

      See Caroline all the guys would say she’s mighty fine
      But mighty fine only got you somewhere half the time
      And the other half either got you cursed out, or coming up short
      Yeah, now dig this, now even though

      You’d need a golden calculator to divide…
