House Members Rebuke Delay of Payday Loan Rule
9/4/2019 7:53:12 PM

By Charlene Crowell   Anyone who struggles with the rising costs of living knows all too well how hard it is to try stretching dollars when there’s more month than money in the household. Predatory lending, like payday and car-title loans, worsen financial stress with triple-digit interest rates that deepen the debt owed with each renewal. The irony is that many payday loan borrowers who needed just a few hundred dollars wind up owing thousands. And any loan whose accrued interest exceeds the principal borrowed, is truly predatory. In recent days, more than 100 Members...

By Stacy M. Brown   A Brennan Center analysis has found that at least 17 million voters were purged nationwide between 2016 and 2018, similar to the numbers discovered between 2014 and 2016.

A Fool's Folly
8/29/2019 1:02:37 PM

By Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX)   The hundreds of thousands of distressed desperate women with babies, children and men from Central America, South America and Africa who journey thousands of miles from their countries, risking their lives and leaving those that they love behind to enter the United States for a new life, will not be stopped by a Southern border wall. That belief is simply folly, or at worse, political rhetoric designed to win over emotional voters that can be easily manipulated during the election season by an administration whose life expectancy,...

By Roger Caldwell, NNPA Newswire Contributor   There are more than 20 Democratic candidates running for President of the United States, and if you listen to them talk, they all believe they can win the nomination. Everyone knows that most of these candidates know they can’t win, but they can raise money. No individual or agency can keep up with how they spend the money, and the amount is in the billions. This may not make much sense, but in the first debate spanned 2 nights with 20 candidates up on the stage. President Donald Trump and the Republicans are laughing at this...

Why I’m Visiting the Border
8/23/2019 5:44:12 PM

By Derrick Johnson NAACP President and CEO   As I ventured to the southern border near Laredo, Texas, I could not help but think about the tragic shootings in El Paso and Dayton, which are stark reminders of the dangers that plague our communities under the resurgence of white nationalism, domestic terrorism, intolerance and racial hatred germinating from the White House. People of color are feeling less safe today and any day when we see the realities of domestic terrorism and racially-motivated acts of violence. However, we’ve yet to see any tangible measures and...
