Analysis / Bias

In review, the content of Your Black World centers around African American news. There is strong use of loaded language such as this: D.L. Hughley Tears Trump and His Administration into Pieces for Their Call for ‘Civility’. This article, like most on the site is not original and comes from other left leaning sources such as Atlanta Black Star and The Grio. In general, story selection almost always favors the left.
