Niger Innis has one helluva name – and a career. He’s today’s cool black guy for black history month. Take us away, Wikipedia.
Niger Roy Innis (born 1968) is an American activist and politician. He is the National Spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), MSNBC commentator, and political consultant. He was born in Harlem, New York, and currently lives in North Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1990, Innis attended Georgetown University, and pursued a degree in political science, but did not graduate from the school.
Eh. Graduation is overrated. Besides, getting in is impressive enough on its own.
Innis’ civil rights and political activities has made him a much-sought after commentator on national television and radio programs. He was a political and social commentator for MSNBC and National Public Radio (NPR). In addition, he is a frequent guest on CNN, Fox News Channel, BBC, CBC, ABC News, CBS News and Al-Jeezera news. Innis is currently a commentator for NBC News in Nevada.
Thats is a lot of different news channels to appear on! Like, almost all of them.
On January 4, 2013, TheTeaParty.net appointed Innis to their Congressional Advocacy Team.
Innis was a Republican candidate for the United States House of Representatives in Nevada’s 4th congressional district during the 2014 elections. He lost the primary to Cresent Hardy, who went on to defeat incumbent Democrat Steven Horsford.
And … that’s all there is to say about him.
