President Obama Talks Ferguson One Year Later, Says He Feels A ‘Great Urgency’.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders left a campaign event in Seattle without giving his speech today (Saturday) after Black Lives Matter activists rushed the podium to deliver their message.
The Supreme Court ruled in June 2013 that states no longer can be judged by voting discrimination that went on decades ago, a decision that argues the country has changed since the racially motivated laws of the civil rights era. The high court eradicated section 5 of the Voting Rights Act under the belief discrimination does not exist anymore. Before this decision, the state of Texas passed a voter 1D law, the strictest in the country, which could have significant repercussions for African American and Latino voters.
Former Republican presidential candidate Sarah Palin is infamous for voicing her opinion, often to the point where it can make many uncomfortable and angered.
Palin has been going ham via her Facebook page with her #DefundPlannedParenthood campaign photos. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, which is cool, but she took it absolutely TOO far. The politician posted a photo comparing the Confederate flag along side the Planned Parenthood logo with text on top that reads, “Which symbol killed 90,000 black babies last year?”
Much like a lot of us, Jeezy is NOT here for Donald Trump‘s run for President of the United States. (It scares me that he’s surging in the polls, though.)
Regarding Trump‘s recent controversial comments about illegal immigration and America‘s relationship with Mexico, Jeezy took to Twitter to share his views.
“We don’t need @DonaldTrump representing us as americans,” he wrote. “His hatred in his most recent statements shows he’s not a legitimate candidate.”
He continued with a few more tweets, which you can check out in the gallery. Couldn’t agree more! I love how Jeezy is using his platform to address issues like this!

Jason Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison in 1998, after he was caught dealing methamphetamines and crack cocaine at the age of 21. After serving 17 years of his life sentence, he was granted a second chance at life.
Donald Trump is fearlessly taking aim at anyone and/or any party that he considers a threat against America, and the republican party isn’t exempted from criticism.
People can say what they want about our President, but he is doing things no other Presidents have done before!
On Thursday, July 16th, President Barack Obama made a special visit to the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution just outside of Oklahoma City. It was a historical day for our country because his trip to see the inmates marked the first visit by a sitting President to a federal prison EVER!
During his visit to El Reno Federal Correctional Institution, Obama explains how he feels that our Justice System needs a ton of work. “We need a fairer Justice System,” the President went on to say.
See the full video clip of President Obama below.
Do you agree with Obama that our Justice System is flawed and unfair? Sound off in the comment section.
