CHICAGO – Tuesday, March 19th, Niger Innis will be featured at "Racism in America & the Role of the Church" forum and dinner in Chicago. Innis, an outspoken conservative, will be joined by Alveda King and Dr. Eric Wallace. More details below … 

National spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) Niger Innis said it is “absurd” to blame President Donald Trump for the actions of extremists who marched on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Innis, the son of the late civil rights pioneer Roy Innis and the executive director of TeaPartyFwd.com, said during an interview Tuesday on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that the violent confrontations at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that left one woman dead and 20 other people injured was fueled by both “the extreme Left” and “the extreme Right.” Pointing to the liberal critics and pundits who sought to pin the blame for the racial hatred evidenced in Charlottesville on Trump’s shoulders, Innis said that such individuals are “guessing wrong.”

“I think that’s absurd. I think that actually it reminds me of the story of the boy who cried wolf. And now what happens when the wolf really comes?” Innis said. “And I think for them to compare the president to that kind of extreme nonsense is nothing but pure partisan politics.”
