I’ve been very blessed to have traveled across this nation quite a bit during 2013. While I don’t worry about the future of America, one of my great concerns is the message of conservatism in the black community.
The black community is the most conservative group in America — on Sunday. Our great challenge is to ensure the message of individual salvation translates to one of individual liberty Monday through Saturday.
It is surely the message Dr. Martin Luther King preached.
We must promulgate this message of economic empowerment — not economic servitude — in our inner cities. We must be able to express why education enables self-reliance, which in turn promotes entrepreneurship.
This was the glorious triumvirate of Booker T. Washington, the “Father of Black Conservatism” – education, self-reliance and entrepreneurship.
When we restore our inner cities by reducing crime and growing opportunity, we enable success and America will thrive. It is there in our urban areas where progressive socialists have done their best to spread their lies of dependency and subservience to government — the evident failures of the 50-year war on poverty. We must restore the values of family and faith, and end the culture of “victimhood.”
If we are to take this message into the black community, we need a new generation of shining stars — energetic, articulate, young black conservatives who can be the sentinels and enable the rising tide to lift all boats out of economic servitude and into economic freedom.
The black liberal Marxists love living on the Kennedy Plantation.
Honestly, if blacks knew where they came from, who put 'em there and who got 'em out (i.e. the truth)...They'd ALL be conservatives. So I'm pretty sure (the majority of) black liberals are quite simply ignorant and obutthead and his cool-aid suckers perpetuate this a little more everyday...So, Colonel West is absolutely correct. Expose the liars and teach the truth. The prog/libs are the racist oppressors, always have been. They simply change methods, titles and rhetoric every-so-often to maintain their "disguise" as "the good guys". End them.
black liberals who lean far enough to the left-and most do-suffer from self imposed victimization. you see it reoccurring over and over again and it can be traced back to the civil war slave issue and this is true even today despite the fact that there are no slaves in present day America and haven't been any slaves in anyone's living memory....alas such is the black subculture that has engendered these ideas and passed them down through the generations-quick check on history first slaves in America were white and they were indentured slaves-one other tidbit of information Obama is the son of slave owners believe it or not!!! this in part speaks to why MLK'S dream will never be fully realized
Please don't get me wrong, MLK was a good brave man with a black dream for equality and I admire that. But John Kennedy was also assinated and he too was agreat man. However I am yet to see massive marches by the whites on JFK Day ( if there is one?) .
What in the hell was King's glorifying moment, "A Speech on the Mall", did he slay the Giant, no. If he was such an influence in the black community, why hasn't the blacks achieved anything, especially since there has been 20.7 Trillion spent on reprieve from slavery. The mentality of the 60's black has not changed and it damn sure isn't for their not have every opportunity.
"why hasn't the blacks achieved anything" , anywhere in the world?
Don't say the Moors they were Berbers.
pERHAPS? But remember thos who "hold to the Dictator BHO" are thos selfish individuals who are on the entitlements, or the receiving end of it all. HUMAN GREED has not and will not ever perish eitherr. GREED AND SELFISHNESS" IS HERE TO STAY, and BHO prays on these souls, every effectivatly!
Sounds good but first you must stop children being born out of wedlock and then hold fathers responsible for their children
You have to start somewhere. Yes, I agree, with the collapse of the Family, but, when it is explained how the absence of Family, lack of High School Graduation, and having casual Sex, at an early age, hampers your chances of advancement, it might send a message. Families produce Citizens, the alternative fills Prisons.
That Law has been Established long ago, However No One, No Stae, No Government Cares to Inforce It!!
It is so very sad the way the African people in this country have been oppressed by the political machines over the past 150-years. First, the Republican party under the pushing of Lincoln by turning loose the African slaves into the streets in 1863 with a view to giving them the vote so they would be obligated (owned) by the Republican establishment for many years. Then, the Democrats turned the tables on the Republicans and began pandering to the African people beginning with Wilson and have since been the slave owners of the African people in the USA ever since. What the self-centered, self-serving and greedy politicians have done to the Africans, as well as the Native tribal nations (Indians) in this country is disgusting and appalling. What a disgrace!
