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.
Too bad.I remember Dr. King. He was what I would call a .......man of ALL Colors.......not prejudiced, racist,Not
like this person in the WH-and he was RESPECTED for it and I remember his speeches. Obama has a lot to learn-like issues. This is a Constitutional Republic We would appreciate our rights back It would still better to have a leader that worked instead of planning our deaths and revenge
Sorry Patricia, BHO has entirely his own agenda. DIVIDE & DESTROY THE USA as we have know it !!!
There was another King. His B-day was on the 8th. Lets celebrate that day instead.
WHY ? Because MLK was conservative AND Republican.
The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
what exactly is black liberation theology?
It started during the 1960s in Latin America. "Liberation theology" is a Christian school of thought that sees Jesus not just as a redeemer, but as a liberator of the oppressed. It is often cited as being a form of "Christian socialism" since it mixes politic and religion. This is where the problems lie. The principle criticism of liberation theology is its embrace of Marxism. Pope Benedict XVI, while he was still a cardinal, strongly opposed radical liberation theology. In fact, the Vatican twice condemned the liberationists' acceptance of Marxism and violence, but just how does this relate to black liberation theology?
Reverend Jeremiah Wright often refers to liberation theology when trying to explain his church's teachings.
BTW Catholic charities is the largest supporter of the oppressed in the world.
I am worried about the future of America. I have heard the same comment as many have in reference to "the black community being a strong conservative group in America". There may have been a time when that was a true comment but it no longer applies. Others use to say that the hispanics were the most conservative, that no longer applies either. lastly I will include that the whites are no longer the most conservative either. In reality the idea that one should provide for one's self is quickly being replaced by demand of equality of outcome.
The call for equality in all things is continually being preached by obama and the congress. But I question whether they will include themselves in their "equality of outcome scenario" . No, I'm not that stupid! I know their plans do not include themselves as equals. But when the government officials spout equality I would really like to hear some reporter ask; "does that include you?" It's the "do as I say not as I do" theory and history reflects the welfare group WILL fall for it again and again.
I have been accused of being negative. I do not see a bright future for America since the blacks, browns, and whites are beginning to rely on their god "obama" to provide them with all their needs. A recent study indicates that the nation is split equally between Americans and Socialists. If that study is correct the future is bleak.
The massive influx of Illegal aliens whose sheer welfare numbers threaten Americas sovereignty, or the massive increase in the population of muslims whose command from allah is to destroy America as an individual country in the name of world colonization and control, is not something we can ignore. History denies our notion that it will not happen again.
