Interview with Leo Smith: GOP operative who believes Trump can get 20% of black vote

Leo Smith is the minority engagement director for the Georgia GOP. Mr. Smith caught my attention because of an article in which he stated that he believed that Donald Trump could get 20% of the black vote in the general election, triple what Mitt Romney got in 2012.

I wanted to know how he thought that could happen. I reached out to him on Memorial Day weekend, and Mr. Smith got back to me to set up this interview. Listen to Mr. Smith explain how he feels Trump can get 20% of the black vote here: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2016/05/interview-with-leo-smith-gop-operative.html

3 Sep

black-lives-matter-banner1-860x280

Fox News has launched an all out propaganda war against the #BlackLivesMatter Movement. The network is trying to blame the recent deaths of police officers on the movement, and trying to make a case that #BlackLivesMatter is putting officers lives at risk by changing the atmosphere in which cops must now work. – See more at: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2015/09/why-fox-news-must-destroy.html

6 points Stephen A. Smith should keep in mind when discussing blacks voting republican.

22 Mar

stephen-a-smithStephen A. Smith made news for his receding hairline, naw just joking. Mr. Smith made news for his suggestion that in one election African American should vote republican. He believes and probably correctly so that the democrats take the black vote for granted, and they should be made to earn the black vote. That may be true, but I have a few points that Mr. Smith might want to keep in mind. Read more: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2015/03/4-points-stephen-smith-should-keep-in.html

Ben Carson speech at Iowa Freedom Summit

Dr Ben Carson addressed the Iowa Freedom Summit Saturday. He spoke on Obamacare, the right to life, economy, foreign policy and more. What he did best was prove that he has no business running for president let alone being president. Carson spoke in generalities and showed little to no substance. He gave the crowd the usual conservative talking points to get cheap applause and nothing more. In the twenty or so minutes ( Yes, twenty minutes of his nasally voice, my ears are still bleeding) are so that he spoke we learned nothing about how he would actually implement any of his ideas. To be fair he never does say talk on the how to part of things. Watch his entire speech at: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2015/01/ben-carson-speech-at-iowa-freedom-summit.html

Paul Ryan to meet black U.S. lawmakers after ‘offensive’ remarks

16 Mar

Look I don’t know if Paul Ryan is racist or not but what he said recently about the “inner city” definitely was. If he and other republicans/conservatives want people to stop accusing them of being racist then they have to stop repeating things that were born out of a racist ideology. Anyway, after Ryan’s offensive “inner city” remarks he will be meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus. This wont accomplish sh*t but I guess it’s a great PR move.
