Despite rampant speculation that President Donald Trump’s trade policy might increase some car prices, how his regulatory relief agenda may lower sticker prices and increase safety goes largely ignored. How did this happen? The Trump administration is revising the Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards imposed on automakers during the Obama era. In particular, they are no longer holding manufacturers to a 2025 fleet mandate of 54.5 miles per gallon. When the rollback was first announced,...

Every January, our nation celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and every February, during Black History Month, we contemplate his words of nonviolent resistance and how the practice of that philosophy brought about the civil rights movement. Leaders, both black and white, rightly venerate him, but somewhere along the way, his message has been corrupted or outright forgotten by some on the left. Over the weekend, longtime Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., called for disrupting and...

President Donald Trump took to Twitter last week to announce he had rescinded the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles’ invitation to the White House over the anthem kneeling controversy. Several members of the NFL team had already announced they wouldn’t be attending the traditional ceremony. According to ESPN, championship-winning teams have been honored at the White House since 1924, when Calvin Coolidge hosted the World Series-winning Washington Senators. While every president since has put his own...

Kanye West surprised the American music scene last Friday by dropping a single “Ye vs. The People,” in which he and fellow rapper T.I. go back and forth about their political views. Some are calling his vocal support of President Trump nothing more than a publicity stunt, but even if that’s true, Kanye is bringing attention to some very important issues. At what point did Trump become such a villain and the blame for everything...

Congratulations to the Alabama Crimson Tide, the 2017 season College Football National Champions. Roll Tide! Watching the game last night, as I saw young men run up and down the field and absorb hits that were not of good intention and lay it on the line, entertaining us while making their universities tens of millions of dollars, I couldn’t help but think it’s time to make a bold change to college athletics. It’s time to...

Now that we’re in the thick of football season and the initial reactions to the phenomenon of the national anthem kneelers continues with even cheerleaders and youth athletes participating, it is time to start a serious nuanced conversation about it. As the president of Reaching America, an organization that addresses complex issues impacting the African American community, I am no stranger to letting my controversial opinions be known, so I’ll go first. I wholeheartedly believe...

On Friday night, in the midst of the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Convention’s festivities, and on the eve of the weekend’s “Take a Knee” protests, a group of about 700 Americans of all races, ages, and political leanings came together to celebrate entrepreneurship, public service, and the American Spirit. About a month ago I had a vision. What if, during this annual celebration of African Americans in government, we held an event bringing together both...

As President of Reaching America I travel around our great nation quite a bit. One of my favorite things to do when I visit a city is to go for a nice run. There really is no better way to familiarize yourself with a new area than running through its parks and down its streets. I’ll often take the time to stop and read the historical plaques and take a look at the statues. For...
