      Hmmm…what extraordinary achievements? I love DJT, but sometimes. This and a crusade for ‘gay rights’ in the same week?
      Not his best, not by a LONG SHOT.

        Is that a serious question?

        You seriously are unaware of any of the contributions made by black Americans since the 1600’s in this country?

        Don’t agree Rudy…This is EXACTLY what Trump needs to do and what Republicans have FAILED to do for a long time….and in case you missed it, he’s doing what he’s done all along. Reaching out to people and being inclusive promoting conservative ideals that can be demonstrated to improve their lives and promote patriotism is a good thing. Sorry, but I’m sick of these crap the bed, constant kicking the tires of the MOST CONSERVATIVE PRESIDENT in our lifetimes…Give it a break. I’m PROUD of what our President is doing…and if you follow these awesome folks on twitter, you can see the love the have for President Trump….He makes them feel like he makes us feel, like he genuinely cares and wants them to succeed.

        I’m sorry, but past methods of ignoring the African American communit has failed. SICK of these bed wetters trying to turn such good things into whiny piss and moan bs, that hasn’t moved the needle much of anything but the WRONG direction for DECADES!

        GO Trump!

        what ever gave you the idea that Pres.Trump would not celebrate African American history and the contributions they made to our country? You don’t know him very well,if at all. You’re a Trump supporter? i think you’ve gotten the wrong impression of him or wanted to have an impression that was to YOUR liking.

      I would like to see President Trump return this year to the Great Faith Ministries International in Detroit, MI to inform Bishop Jackson and his church community of the progress his administration has made to improve the lives of the those in the black community. I say this year because if he waits until next year it could possibly be viewed as pandering for the black vote going into the 2020 election. President Trump should visit Great Faith and do an inner city tour somewhere to speak directly to the black community ahead of the campaign season and tout his record of achievement for the minority communities to challenge any pre-disposed notion he has a racist bone in his body as the Angry Left would have the minority communities believe.

      please keep comedian Terrence K. Williams in your prayers. He was supposed to attend the celebration.Unfortunately the day before the event he was in a terrible accident and is currently hospitalized. He was fortunate in that he could have been killed.He has serious neck and spine injuries. He had just tweeted a picture of his invite from Pres Trump a day or two before. He travels with the Deplorables and is well known on Twitter. Heck of a nice guy too.

        I don’t think massive deplorable was implying that the deconstructive approach was present at this POTUS event.

        I took her to be contrasting two types of movements. On one hand, events like this which affirm all human beings as equal, the courageous acts which have been taken to get those rights for women and minorities, and the need to maintain them. On the other hand, there are reactive movements which use racism to seek deconstruct America as founded. Some are victims over-reacting and want the “big bad white country” destroyed, others are manipulative SOBs who use this anger and foment victimhood mentality in order to persuade voters to give more power to them — which they use to make more money and power.

        Our founders got it right — they just didn’t address/apply the principles fully to women and minorities. We did that later.

List the solutions or actions that you think PDJT, current POTUS should take, and what our government should do that will be better for minorities and alt/sexual communities than what he has done in the last year. All the economic stats show unprecedented improvements for them.

      Martin’s “I have a dream” speech gets most of the attention, but to me that was nothing compared to his last one. The “mountaintop” speech, ONE DAY before he was murdered. Watch this, and tell me he didn’t KNOW he was about to die. The COURAGE of this guy was awe-inspiring.

            It doesn’t really look like him. It was sculpted by a Chinese sculptor. Lei Yixin is a good sculptor, but -as most realist artists know – it is curiously difficult to do realistic portraits of people of other races than oneself.

            It *can* be done, but most people subconsciously inject a bit their own racial features in.

            Dr. King looks a bit Chinese in that sculpture.

            It’s always bugged me, which is a shame. Cuz it would’ve been great to have a really powerful statue of him.

              Oh, THANK YOU for explaining that. Yours and the other explanations make sense. I was just kinda taken aback by Annie’s reply to my first comment… I thought she might be meaning that MLK didn’t DESERVE a monument/statue. I was hoping that wasn’t the case, which is the reason all I could come up with in response was “Why?” 🙂 But I’m really happy to see that it was apparently for another reason… like artistic reasons. And in that regard, yeah, I gotta agree that he/we deserved something better. The current statue just feels a little… I guess “hard” is the word I’m looking for. (or Sovietesque as someone else noted.)

              There is precedent for re-doing monuments in DC. Admiral DuPont was first rendered, in Dupont Circle, as a heroic figure on a pillar. Then Daniel Chester French interviewed the admiral’s family and heard their memories of a frail, elderly father and grandfather who regained energy and youth when speaking of the Sea. The new monument is a fountain with three flickering reliefs of the Sea, rendered on a basin pedestal screened by a curtain of water droplets. French replaced the dead admiral with his ever-fresh, enduring love. The fountain is possibly French’s greatest work — not to disparage the Minuteman in Massachusetts, or the Lincoln and Gallaudet in Washington.

    We lament what Democrats have done to destroy black families after they were freed following the civil war. Black marriage rates and education levels and employment plummeted due to Democrat policies, which were only designed to capture the black vote, not lift them from poverty.

    But don’t think that this only affected the black community. We spend more than ANY other country on education per capita and rank 17th. Therefore, it’s no wonder that charlatans like Willie Brown’s Girlfriend or Sporatacus Booker or Princess White Beaver aren’t laughed off their stages. People are dumb across the board. Democrats have succeeded in creating a populace that is far dumber than their predecessors for the first time in generations.

    And that’s the ONLY reason they get elected at the rate they do. Stupidity has reached critical mass.

    Great event. Very happy to see Katherine Toney and her family there. She was the first woman released under the First Step Act.

    POTUS getting it done for ALL Americans.

    African-Americans, in general, love Trump (in my opinion). He’s real, he doesn’t play games and he does what he says he is going to do. No excessive pandering or patronizing. What you see is what you get, and everyone respects that. He wants to help everyone, and he wants to help put people in positions so they can help themselves, as well.

        The last time Henry Davis was invited to the White House, he was unable to go. He was threatened & his family was threatened. People were showing up outside his house in St. Louis & intimidating him with gun fire. He was so upset. That’s why he was so giddy last night. I’m very happy he was finally able to go.

    It’s just too bad, and so sad, whites don’t have any history to celebrate. If only some of the great inventors, like Thomas Edison, the Wright Brothers, Alexandra Graham Bell, Guglielmo Marconi, Gottlieb Daimler, William Shockley, etc., etc., etc., had just been white. Same thing with all the world’s great explorers. Maybe someday some white will invent something, or explore something, and then whites can have a white history month, or at least a white history week, or at least a white history day.

    Bob Woodson was so very eloquent in his short address he made my eyes a bit moist. You could sense the decades of problems that he has witnessed but now he appears greatly relieved.

    I want to thank God and President Trump for turning the tables over in the temple, and attacking the Status Quo that is hostile to the interests of poor people. And I also want to bless you and the Administration and the policies of opportunity zones and for giving low income people an opportunity to help themselves. That’s all they want….

    God Bless President Trump and all of those people there supporting him.

      That got me too. Very short, but packed with truth and praise.

      I was immediately reminded of President TRUMP always talking about how people don’t wants handouts, they want a hand up. And about how many Presidents and Presidential hopefuls, Congressmen and women and all the Congressional hopefuls over the years promised who that and then DID/DO NOTHING!!!!!

      And then finally one guy comes along who makes promises and keeps his promises. How refreshing WINNING is!

      Many people have forgotten that the original Apprentice was about real people, normal everyday people who were vying for an opportunity to work with Donald TRUMP. Then the “celebrities” wanted in on the deal, as they do with everything, make it about them, and he gave a bunch a b-listers (most of them anyway) a major opportunity for a career comeback.
