SCOTUS: Puerto Ricans are disqualified from some but not all federal benefits

In a shocking declaration by the Supreme Court this week, Puerto Ricans have been dealt yet another blow in their quest to be treated as equals by mainland America. According to an opinion written by right-wing judge Brett Kavanaugh -- Congress is not required to dole out *all* benefits to those living in Puerto Rico simply because they live in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico despite a common misconception is not a U.S state but rather a U.S territory which has made it a hot button political issue for many years. "In devising tax and benefits programs, it is reasonable for Congress to take account of the general balance of benefits to and burdens on the residents of Puerto Rico," Kavanaugh wrote. "In doing so, Congress need not conduct a dollar-to-dollar comparison of how its tax and benefi...

WI Republicans are trying to stop the creation of a 7th majority Black district, wait till you hear why

Wisconsin Republicans and its GOP party are arguing in a new Supreme Court filing against the creation of a majority Black 7th district in the state but their reasoning as to why is probably more wild than the attempt itself. According to Republicans in the state (per their filing), the party claims that by authorizing the newest district the state would be effectively taking away rights from Black people in the state as a whole. The problem with that claim is that the plan they put forth (instead of the current one being pushed) would actually make the majority Black districts shrink from a total of 6 to 5 instead of the opposite. Republicans are essentially using a reverse argument in an effort to mislead people into thinking their plan is better. In their court battle, it a...

Biden ‘s nominee for fed position is facing some pretty radical racist accusations that are almost entirely untrue

Students at Michigan State University might recognise this name. Lisa Cook one of their shining professors is up for a position at the Federal Reserve as one of Biden 's nominees to the Board of Governors. But in right-wing fashion, Professor Cook is facing some pretty racially charged accusations that are actually entirely untrue but appear aimed at the fact she's a Black woman. She'd be the first Black woman ever on the board if actually successfully confirmed. “This is not the place in this time of great peril for purely race-based appointments,” former Donald Trump adviser Peter Navarro told the right-wing Daily Caller. “Professor Cook is more qualified to coach an NFL team than manage what may be a looming collapse of our economy from a perch at the Fed.
