Voting rights advocates say this controversial legislation out of Florida effectively creates a “poll tax” - hearkening back to the Jim Crow-era laws that used voting fees as a way to suppress African Americans from casting ballots.

#DYK that the Jackson Heart Study is the largest study of the causes of #CVD  in African Americans, involving more than 5,300 men and women in Jackson, MS? Stop by our booth during to learn how you can #ABRCMSet  involved in research. @JHS_HeartStudy

Deval Patrick wants the Buttigieg vote — and African-Americans too

@Clyburn  . & 's @RonWyden  bill would END: ✔️ Multiple OZ with a child poverty rate >30% ✔️ Multiple OZ with poverty rates >25% (double their statewide avg) ✔️ At least 1 zone with a senior poverty rate >40% ✔️ An OZ where African-Americans are 20% of the community

To be clear: This isn’t about turnout or suppression, it’s about the fact that African-Americans who voted in 2018 gave a larger share of their support to Republicans than they did in 2016.

Fun fact I learned reporting this story — Stacy Abrams did better than Hillary with white voters but worse with African-Americans.

In many states, ex-felons are not allowed to vote, even after serving their sentence. @kurtisalee  traveled to Florida to explore how the practice disproportionately affects African Americans

A1: The Strong Heart Study found that compared with whites & African Americans, AI also have a higher incidence of #stroke  & higher 1 year-fatality rate for 1st stroke. #NativeHealthChat 

On October 16, NACCHO sent a joint letter to Congress outlining the consequences of menthol cigarettes disproportionately affecting African Americans, and the importance of #HR2339  to removal of flavored tobacco products

....greatly help the African American community (and all other communities), and which was unable to get done in past administrations despite a tremendous desire for it. This and best unemployment numbers EVER is more than Kamala will EVER be able to do for African Americans!

We are here to honor the extraordinary contributions of African-Americans to every aspect of American Life, History and Culture. From the earliest days of this Nation, African-American Leaders, Pioneers, & Visionaries have uplifted & inspired our Country...

Mass murder at a Pittsburgh synagogue. A killer targeting African Americans in Kentucky. The bomb maker. The focus should not be only on Trump, but all who excuse, abet, or stand in silence while hate is stoked for political gain.

Senator Graham, you should be ashamed. Your state had 164 recorded lynchings, and your words disrespect and belittle African Americans and lynching victims. This is absolutely unacceptable and disgraceful!

Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act. Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky 

If Donald Trump takes people's anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare.

Thank you Terrence. Best Employment Numbers In History for African Americans!

Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!

Our criminal justice system is profoundly broken and has failed African Americans over and over again.

Except for African Americans, Muslims, Latinos, immigrants, women, veterans—and any so-called "losers" or "dummies."
