With only 39 days until the election, tensions are at an all-time high. But, Donald Trump is a man with a plan.

At his Friday afternoon “Black Economic Empowerment” event in Atlanta, President Trump is expected to unveil the “Platinum Plan,” a $500 billion plan that aims to increase access to capital for Black Americans, according to the Daily Caller.

According to a copy obtained by Fox News, the plan lays out four areas in which Trump vows to help black Americans: “opportunity,” “security,” “prosperity” and “fairness.”

“For decades, Democrat politicians like Joe Biden have taken black voters for granted,” Trump’s planned remarks say, according to Fox. “They made you big promises before every election — and then the moment they got to Washington, they abandoned you and sold you out. The Democrats will always take black voters for granted until large numbers of black Americans vote Republican.”

Not only will the plan seek “alternative ways to build credit including rent, utilities and phone bills,” and “increase opportunities for small business lending and technical assistance” through Community Development Financial Institutions, it will also create 3 million jobs for black Americans, as well as 500,000 new black-owned businesses, according to the Daily Caller.

Most notably, the plan vows to make Juneteenth a national holiday, requiring action by Congress and the prosecution of the KKK and ANTIFA as terrorist organizations.

As the country erupts in protest over the Breonna Taylor decision, the president is also expected to vow to increase public safety in black communities.

“Instead of fighting for public safety for these communities, the Democrats are attacking our police and empowering far-left rioters, looters and anarchists,” Trump is expected to say. “In the Republican Party, we believe in protecting ALL black lives – including the unborn.”

Trump is also expected to discuss the Republican belief that the lives of all children, born and unborn, are sacred.

The announcement of this new plan comes at a critical time in the presidential race. With much of the country facing extreme unrest – and after visiting Florida to court Latino voters – Trump is doing everything he can to appeal to voters of all races.

And the “Platinum Plan” seems to be a good place to start.

‘Tis the Season For Social Justice Messages on NFL Helmets, End Zones and Hats

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force

NFL Social Justice

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force. Stenciled in the helmets this year, players can choose from six phrases: “End Racism,” “Stop Hate,” “It Takes All of Us,” “Black Lives Matter,” “Inspire Change” and “Say their Stories.”

The end zones will read, for the second straight year, “It Takes All of Us” and “End Racism.” The league is also bringing back the “Say Their Stories” initiative and begin a new one where each team will “highlight its social justice work during a regular-season home game in Weeks 17 and 18.”

“We are committed to Inspire Change and the social justice work that inspires change for the long term,” said Anna Isaacson, NFL’s senior vice president of social responsibility. All of the initiatives “will provide a unified time frame for us to further amplify all of the work that our clubs are doing and that will lead into the playoffs where Inspire Change will continue to take center stage” added Isaacson. “The key message for us as the season is starting, we are ramping up again in a big way with our social justice work.”

End zone stencils will remain in place for all home games except when another specific cause is to be recognized, such as the Salute to Service game. “Salute To Service” will replace “End Racism” in one end zone and “It Takes All of Us” will still remain in the opposite end zone,

Another addition will be a knit hat that can be worn on the sidelines of Weeks 17 and 18 by players, coaches, and other personnel “to add visibility to the cause.” The hat will also be sold at retail, and “100% of the league’s proceeds will be donated to Inspire Change grant recipients.”

Racist Rock: Boulder Removed from UW-Madison ‘Painful History of Discrimination’

Rock

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is spending somewhere between $30,000 and $75,000 for good use; to move a rock. But not just any rock, no, this is a racist rock. “Chamberlin Rock, located on top of Observatory Hill, is named in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president” reports the Wisconsin State Journal.

However, “for some students of color on campus, the rock represents a painful history of discrimination” the article explains. The 70-ton boulder was removed from the “heart of campus” at 6:30 am Friday morning following demands from students over the past year.

The boulder will be moved to university-owned land southeast of Madison near Lake Kegonsa. In its place, the university plans to place a plaque to honor the former university president. Wisconsin State Journal reports:

The boulder was referred to as a “n——-head” — a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock — at least once in a 1925 Wisconsin State Journal story. University historians have not found any other time that the term was used but said the Ku Klux Klan was active on campus at that time.

UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank approved the removal of Chamberlin Rock in January but the Wisconsin Historical Society needed to sign off on the rock’s removal because it was located within 15 feet of a Native American burial site…

… The Black Student Union led the call to remove the rock last summer. Nalah McWhorter, the group’s president and a UW-Madison senior, said in an interview this summer that the demands to remove the boulder had been around even before she arrived on campus three years ago.

“I’m grateful that we have had the opportunity to do this and that the rock will be removed,” she said. “It was our demand, and it was something that we put all the work in for.”

The Black Student Union worked with Wunk Sheek, an Indigenous student organization on campus, to lobby for the rock’s removal.

“We did all these presentations,” McWhorter said. “We went through all of these meetings during an academic year with a lot of other stuff going on, so the work really relied on us, as students, and as Black students.”
