It’s obvious that President Obama wants to curtail our Second Amendment freedoms. It’s now completely believable that Americans’ constitutional right to own and use firearms might even be diminished with the stroke of Obama’s autopen signature.
American democracy is called a “grand experiment.” It is not called this out of some romanticized Continue reading →
Legal Brief Argues Voting Rights Act’s Selective “Preclearance” Restrictions are Outdated, Onerous and Being Abused by Obama Administration. Court Asked to Make Nearly 50-Year-Old Civil Rights Law Applicable to 21st Century America.
Washington, D.C. – As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments on the constitutionality of ”preclearance” standards in the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Project 21 black leadership network has filed a legal brief with the Court arguing that the Department of Justice is using an obsolete portion of that law to justify a race-conscious administration of justice and to obstruct voting laws in affected states and localities.

By Cherylyn LeBon Harley, Co-Chairman of the Project 21 Black Leadership Network
I recently took my daughter to our pediatric ophthalmologist — a physician she has seen for several years, and with whom we have a very good relationship.
At this appointment, however, the receptionist gave me three new forms to fill out. These forms were not the usual update forms. This new paperwork required specific and personal demographic information. Continue reading →
Exelon Asked to Return $200 Million Grant from Obama Administration to Taxpayers; Declines. Corporate Chairman “Doesn’t See Any Link” Between $200 Million Obama Administration Grant and “Our Own Public Policy Positions” — Which Happened to Support Obama’s

If Pressure Group Truly Means What It Says, It Will Push Coke to Drop Ties to Radical Environmental Group
Washington, D.C. – If the activists at the group Color of Change are serious about wanting to keep the Coca-Cola Company from hurting the black community, members of the Project 21 black leadership network suggest that the group demand the soft drink manufacturer also sever its ties to the World Wildlife Fund for its support of overburdening regulation.
“The sagging economy over the last three years has devastated black Americans. Unemployment, declining home values and high fuel prices have hit black households particularly hard. Coca Cola’s support for the radical environmental agenda only exacerbates these maladies for black families,” said Project 21 spokesman Horace Cooper.
Washington, D.C. – Calling it a valuable safeguard of religious freedom in America, National Center for Public Policy Research Adjunct Fellow Horace Cooper says an amendment up for a vote in the Senate Thursday is necessary to protect the First Amendment against new regulatory mandates included in Obamacare.

Washington, D.C. – Black conservatives with the Project 21 leadership network are condemning the welfare state cheerleading of Jesse Jackson, who claimed President Obama deserves a “big hand” and “honor” for being a “food stamp President.”
Project 21 members also dispute Obama Administration assertions that welfare spending effectively stimulates the economy.
“This is twisted logic. Dr. King didn’t march and die for the perpetuation of the welfare state,” said Project 21 spokesman Jerome Hudson. “They are doing little more than perpetuating a class of jobless and poor people to shore up the rest of the economy. Not only is it a cop-out to focus on subsidies over job-creation, but it’s creating a slave-like existence where people must rely on the government for food, medical care and other essentials.” Continue reading →
