    Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said at the Republican National Committee’s 2020 convention on Thursday that President Donald Trump is not a racist and that the real racism taking place in this country is the high rate of abortion among blacks. “President Trump does not dabble in identity politics,” Carson said. “He wants everyone to succeed and believes in the adage, ‘a rising tide lifts all boats.’ Many on the other side love to incite division by claiming that President Trump is a racist. They could not be more wrong.” He went on to say: Years ago, Jesse Jackson gave Donald Trump an award for the economic opportunities he created for black people. In Palm Beach, Florida, Donald...
    "When you begin to lose a city, it's hard to get it back," Williams said. "And the problem is, is Austin is becoming an inner city, and you know what I mean by that is where people stay outside the city, they don't come in, just like they don't go into Chicago, they don't go into New York, they don’t go into Portland. They stay out. And I think it's a shame that Austin is heading toward being an inner city-type environment." Williams' office did not immediately respond to an inquiry for this story. The term "inner city" has become a dog-whistle euphemism for an area with a substantial poor, nonwhite population. Northwestern University communications professor Ryan Lauth told CNN...
    The coronavirus isn’t the only beneficiary of modern man’s hedonistic lifestyle. Incidents of gout — a type of arthritis characterized by severe joint pain and tenderness — have increased at “alarming” rates worldwide in recent years thanks to dietary over-indulgence, according to a new study published this in the journal “Arthritis & Rheumatology.” “The pace of increase was astonishing,” wrote the University Of Sydney team, who compiled newly released data from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries and Risk Factors Study (GBD). According to the research, there were a bone-aching 41.2 million global cases of the inflammatory ailment in 2017, marking a 5.5% uptick since 1990. The analysis also revealed that there were approximately 7.4 million new cases of...

Especially if you happen to be an NBA player. Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter, Jr. was on a Snapchat session with fans from the NBA bubble in Orlando when he was asked his opinion on the COVID-19 virus.

    Coronavirus is a government tool created for population control, according to an unproven theory posited by 22-year-old Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr., who claims he's never been vaccinated in his entire life. 'Personally, I think that the coronavirus is being used obviously for a bigger agenda,' Porter said during a Snapchat question-and-answer session with fans on Tuesday. 'It's being used for population control in just terms of being able to control the masses of people. 'Because of this virus, the whole world is being controlled,' he continued. 'You're required to wear masks, and who knows what'll happen when this vaccine comes out. You might have to have the vaccine in order to travel. That'd be crazy.' And that could...

    Nearly half of the U.S. adult population is still without a job as the number of Americans filing for unemployment remains high and reopening in several states is slowed because of high levels of new coronavirus cases. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment-population ratio for May 2020 shows that just 52.8 percent of the adult population was employed last month. This means that 47.2 percent of Americans are jobless despite a surprising surge in jobs in May. The employment-population ratio highlights the number of employed people as a percentage of the U.S. adult population, creating a broader picture of the rate of employment across the country. Almost half of all adult Americans have been jobless in...
    China is forcing ethnic minority women in its Xinjiang province to take birth control, get IUDs, and abort the unborn on a scale that has sent birthrates plummeting by over 80% in three years in some regions. Xinjiang is home to much of China’s ethnic-minority, Muslim populations such as the Uighurs and Kazakhs. According to a new report from The Jamestown Foundation, Chinese government documents and data show what one expert called a “creeping genocide” taking place across the province as Beijing enforces strict population control. The research was first reported by the Associated Press. “Natural population growth in Xinjiang has declined dramatically; growth rates fell by 84 percent in the two largest Uyghur prefectures between 2015 and 2018, and...
    Fox News culture reporter Raymond Arroyo mocked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for misspeaking and saying the country had suffered “120 million dead” from the coronavirus instead of 120,000, but then proceeded to make a big numerical gaffe himself, by inaccurately saying “We don’t have that many people in the United States.” In fact, the current US population is just under 330 million. During the culture segment of The Ingraham Angle, Arroyo ran through a number of feature pieces with host Laura Ingraham mocking the left and then turned to a Biden campaign event held on Thursday in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The show then ran a brief clip of Biden, wearing a black face mask pulled down around his chin, as discussed the Covid-19...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The California Catholic Conference of Bishops issued its first statement on the vandalism of a Father Junipero Serra statue in downtown Los Angeles on Monday, saying that Serra “made great sacrifices to defend and serve the indigenous population.” The statue of the Spanish leader who brought the first Catholic missionaries to California about 250 years ago was torn down on Saturday at Placita Olvera. Protesters who support getting rid of Serra’s statue say he forced California Native Americans to convert to Catholicism and stay at his missions while destroying their tribes and their culture. The California Catholic Conference of Bishops said in response that Serra actually treated Native Americans with respect. “The historical truth is that...
    Republican Ohio State Senator Steve Huffman had an interesting take on how racism and the coronavirus pandemic intersect. He believes that a certain community’s hygiene may play a large part as to why more people of color have been impacted by the respiratory disease. READ MORE: Cities make deep COVID-19 budget cuts but not to police departments “My point as I understand African Americans have a higher incidence of chronic conditions and it makes them more susceptible to death from COVID,” Huffman said in a public hearing, “But why it doesn’t make them more susceptible to just get COVID. Could it just be that African Americans or the colored population do not wash their hands as well as other groups...
