Trump Rants Like Racist Grandpa in Speech to MAGA Negroes

Trump Rants Like Racist Grandpa in Speech to MAGA Negroes

Donald Trump set aside some time between racist rants to go on a racist rant with young black conservatives gathered at the White House to listen to the president give a rambling speech that hailed Kanye West, praised Jim Brown, gave a shout out to black people getting out of prison and asked the crowd of black supporters if any of them were “the bad ones.”

On Friday, the White House hosted...

HUD Could Displace More Than 100,000 Legal Residents and Citizens With New Proposed Rule

HUD Could Displace More Than 100,000 Legal Residents and Citizens With New Proposed Rule

Stephen Miller will never big people face to match his big-and-tall head, and is determined to take his anger out on the most vulnerable among us. After months of pushing the Trump administration to penalize immigrants—legal and undocumented alike—in myriad ways, Miller seems to be getting his wish with a little help from Ben Carson.

Thanks to a proposed rule intended to prevent undocumented...

10 Things President Obama Has NOT Been Accused of Being...Yet

10 Things President Obama Has NOT Been Accused of Being...Yet

It’s a day during a week during a year, which means we were overdue for another fun round of “President Obama is a Muslim”; the game which is basically the conservative’s version of spades. I actually wouldn’t even be surprised if some of them had regular “President Obama is a Muslim” game nights and potlucks, where they gathered in people’s living rooms to eat bad casserole and lazy...

These Are the Black Folks Skipping Out on the RNC This Year

These Are the Black Folks Skipping Out on the RNC This Year

The Republican National Convention may be noteworthy this year for one glaring reason: who isn't coming. In the case of African-American Republicans, the list is long. They are joined by a list of former GOP nominees for president who will not attend, which includes past GOP nominees for president Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Mitt Romney. While the number of African Americans in attendance...

Ben Carson Released A Hip-Hop Ad. It Is Some Shit.

Hey African Americans, Ben Carson is targeting you. He has a radio ad out now that's intended to reach urban demographics. Uh oh.

You know what this means.

Dammit.

And of course it's as bad as you think it would be because it's EXACTLY what you think it is.

In case you weren't sure just how out of touch Ben Carson is with the Black community, you are DEFINITELY going to be sure now. From the...

Ben Carson Endorsed Trump For A Job Hook-Up, Which Reminds Us Ben Carson Is Black As Fuck

Ben Carson Endorsed Trump For A Job Hook-Up, Which Reminds Us Ben Carson Is Black As Fuck

You can say many things about Ben Carson, the backordered decaffeinated coffee machine who recently dropped out of the presidential race. Iconic surgeon. Popeyes enthusiast. Vigilante. Black History Month book report muse. Delusional motherfucker. But one thing you cannot do is doubt his Blackness bonafides. Yes, his actual politics, if enacted, would have put America back to 1953. But let's...

Ben Carson Knew When to End the Charade; Too Bad Tangerine Mussolini Didn't

Ben Carson Knew When to End the Charade; Too Bad Tangerine Mussolini Didn't

There are many reasons not to serve in the Donald Trump administration. For starters, by the simple virtue of Tangerine Mussolini's being grossly unqualified for the presidency, who could blame anyone for not wanting to serve under what will likely prove to be a disastrous commander in chief? However, when it comes to the likes of Newt Gingrich, who had long been touted as a potential Cabinet...

<i>Unique Views,</i> Episode 34: Can You Hear Us Now?

This episode is filled with people we hate, HBCU presidents, Ben Carson , embarrassing fat moments that Ms. Patti Patti and I bond over, and Donald Trump’s usual foolishness. But first, an apology.

I want to apologize to all the listeners who have had to endure over 30 episodes of The Root’s podcast and have not been able to fully embrace the featheriness (is that a word?) of my voice. I...

Finding Carly: Whatever Happened to the Breakout Stars, Heroes and Flops of the 2016 Primary Season?

The political campaign season has a funny way of giving everyone long-term memory loss. Your friends at work can remember the latest Hillary Clinton gaffe or Donald Trump stumble that happened 48 hours (or, in Trump’s case, five minutes) ago because it circulates on Twitter and Facebook. But when it comes to some event that happened two months or even three months ago, suddenly everyone is...

Housing Secretary Ben Carson Was Asked About ‘REOs’. He Noted That He Doesn’t Really Mess With Oreos Like That

Housing Secretary Ben Carson Was Asked About ‘REOs’. He Noted That He Doesn’t Really Mess With Oreos Like That

Me and my friends have this game where we argue about which famous people should’ve died but who lived long enough just to fuck up their legacy. It’s a brutal game in which we basically argue that big-boned Luther Vandross should’ve died right around the time that a chair was still a chair—not because he ruined his legacy but because he didn’t add much to it after that.

Maxine Waters Rips Ben Carson, HUD for 'Actively Causing Harm'

Maxine Waters Rips Ben Carson, HUD for 'Actively Causing Harm'

Ben Carson’s stint as secretary of Housing and Urban Development has been marred by questionable conduct , his piss poor work ethic and an unprecedented degree of incompetence , but Congresswoman Maxine Waters is about to make things a lot worse for him.

After unveiling his dastardly plans to evict undocumented immigrants and reduce rental assistance, Auntie Max tore Ben and his “gifted...

I’m Gonna Go On Ahead and Count Tiger Woods’ Win as Another One for the Black Community. Cool? Let’s Fight

Tiger Woods made a triumphant return to Augusta National on Sunday, winning his fifth Master’s Tournament (and his first since 2005), becoming one of the oldest golfers to win a major tournament at age 43, and putting him three back from tying the record for most majors titles, currently held by golf-legend Jack Nicklaus.

Only two years ago, Tiger wasn’t sure he’d ever get back to this point....

Ben Carson's HUD Charges Facebook With Housing Discrimination in Ads

Facebook is supposed to just be Instagram for old people, yet they keep finding themselves embattled in all kinds of skullduggery.

In 2018, Facebook found itself involved in some 21 scandals, including: Russians creating fake Facebook accounts to stir up shit before the 2016 election and Cambridge Analytica stealing the data of tens of millions of Americans without their knowledge before that...

Ben Carson Keeps Busy Doing Nothing All Day, Leaves Early, and Lunches With the Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

Ben Carson Keeps Busy Doing Nothing All Day, Leaves Early, and Lunches With the Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

Ben Carson never wanted to be the Housing and Urban Development director; he wanted to be the president. After losing the Republican nomination to Donald J. Trump, Carson was quoted as saying, “Having me as a federal bureaucrat would be like a fish out of water, quite frankly.”

Strangely, Carson considered Trump a “brother” (not a “brotha” but you get the point) and agreed to take a position...

President Trump Needs a New Black as Ben Carson Will Leave HUD at the End of the First Term

The president’s senior most black, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, is leaving the Trump administration at the end of Trump’s first term.

“I will certainly finish out this term,” Carson told Newsmax’s John Gizzi, Monday.

After Carson’s cryptic answer, Gizzi pressed him on whether he’d be interested in serving a second term to which Carson noted, “I would be interested in...

Ben Carson Is The Dumbest Motherfucker Alive

Ben Carson Is The Dumbest Motherfucker Alive

I do not care that Benjamin Solomon Carson, Sr. graduated from Yale and became the director of pediatric neurosurgery at John Hopkins when he was 33, the youngest ever in that position. (For comparison's sake, at 33, I was still saving my cups from Panera Bread — leaving with them instead of throwing them away, keeping them in my car, and bringing them in the next time I went there — so I...

Ben Carson Proves the Sunken Place Is Where Rhythm Goes to Die

Ben Carson, our woefully inexperienced Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, is not only painfully inept at steering housing policy, but apparently has been exiled from Janet’s illustrious Rhythm Nation.

How else can you explain this dearth of coordination at a fundraiser for Palm Beach County Republican Lincoln Day?

Bruh.

“Gifted Hands”, my ass.

'If Tattoos Can Be Removed, So Can Ben Carson's Name from Our High School' Asserts Detroit School Board Members

Ben Carson is having a bad week.

First he got dragged for a surge in failed HUD inspections since his appointment as U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary in 2017, and now Detroit’s Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine is ripping the ring off its finger and throwing it back in his face.

According to Detroit Metro Times, the Detroit Board of Education met last week to vote...

A Completely Insane but Very Possible Conspiracy Theory That Ben Carson Authored the NYT Op-Ed

A Completely Insane but Very Possible Conspiracy Theory That Ben Carson Authored the NYT Op-Ed

The last time we heard anything about the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Secretary Ben Carson, he was trying toget some blinged-out furniture for his office . It wasn’t on some Paul Manafort ostrich skin-level shit, but Ben was definitely trying to hype his office on some Diddy-esque executive swag.
