Pastor: Black families made a lot more progress as slaves

Black people should blame themselves for the current state of the black community, according to Tony Evans of the Urban Alternative ministry.

In an interview with Darrell Bock, Evans said the black community needed to get back to “the biblical standard that God holds us to,” and stop blaming white people, The Christian Post reported.

“The biggest problem in Black America today is the breakdown of the family,” he explained. “The breakdown of the family is unraveling us as a community. When 70 percent plus of your children are being born out of wedlock and the fathers are not there to tend to them, you’ve got chaos in the community. That’s crime, that’s unemployment and most of these kids are going to be raised in poverty. So and that’s something we control. That’s something we control.”

“The white man is not making you do that. He’s not forcing you into that position. That’s a convenient out.”

Evans added black families had become weaker since the United States abolished slavery.

“In slavery when we did not have laws on our side, the community on our side, the government on our side, the broader community on our side, our families were a lot stronger. We were a lot more unified and we made a lot more progress. We’re going through regression right now and a lot of that is because of decision-making we are responsible for.”

GOP strategist delivers devastating analysis of Trump’s ‘Make America White Again’ agenda on CNN

Published

Republican strategist Tara Setmayer on Tuesday delivered a brutal analysis of President Donald Trump's strategy to win reelection, which she dubbed "Make America White Again."

During a panel discussion on Trump ramping up his racist attacks on four Democratic women of color, Setmayer argued that appealing solely to angry white voters was the only hope he had of winning in 2020.

"It's 'Make America White Again,' according to the president of the United States, because everyone in the country is not welcome," she said. "If you have a difference of opinion, you're not welcome."

She then went on to document all the ways Trump is uniquely unfit to judge who does and does not belong in the United States.

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough was left speechless by Sen. Lindsey Graham's impassioned defense of President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen.

The "Morning Joe" host sat in stunned silence after rolling video of the South Carolina Republican defending Trump's tweets, and doubling down by hurling his own slurs against the first-year lawmakers.

"You call Americans in Congress communists?" Scarborough said, after gathering his thoughts, "and you say they hate America? And then your punch line to that is aim higher?"
