In Uncategorized on September 5, 2015 at 7:21 pm

“…(perhaps) we live in the time of the ‘New Superb’, where yesterday’s mediocrity is today’s excellence…”

PITTSBURGH (September 4, 2015) – In the shadows of the scare from China and with the scenery of the ‘New Normal’ around us, we stare at a reality that challenges our definition of the American Dream: that we live in the time of the ‘New Superb’, where yesterday’s mediocrity is today’s excellence…complete with lowered expectations for your children, extended timelines for your retirement, and economic limits on the middle class and aspiring Americans.”

Host and political commentator Lenny McAllister coins the term, the “New Superb”, as a perspective that is taking over the narrative concerning the state of the American economy and the American Dream during this “Starting Point” commentary.

"Yes, #BlackLivesMatter when civil rights are trounced during police interactions. Yet, do #BlackLivesMatter when it comes to educational equality by way of school vouchers, inequalities in careers from boardrooms to courtrooms, or – say - the sanctity of the pro-life movement?”

Elephants in the Room Missing THE Elephant in the Room

Until Black Republicans are more visible in standing up with and for Black America, political rhetoric will never influence the political realities within Black America.

 

NEW YORK CITY/ PITTSBURGH (April 3, 2014) – (Courtesy Global Grind)

 

“It was never my intention to get involved in this “controversy” – this latest go-’round between Black America and its oft-disgarded stepchildren, Black conservatives.

 

“The responses from many Black Republicans and conservatives (including friends, colleagues, and those that I respect) in digital print and interviews, along with the feedback from other friends and family within Black America and throughout the nation, just made it that much harder to sidestep – especially since no one seems to want to address what is truly the turbulent current underneath the river’s reflection of this matter.

 

“Ironically, in the ongoing conversation about Black voters, political advocacy, Black conservatives and the Republican Party, no one seems to want to discuss the true elephant in the room.

 

“When Black America sees more Black conservatives take chances for Black people today – just as Black leaders did during the Civil Rights Movement and at other times in our nation’s proud history – then Black America will take a chance on us.”

The Three-Legged Stool of Racial Justice

Ronald Reagan saved the Republican Party with a three-legged stool of principles for conservatives. Black Americans can take a page from that for a similar revival today.

NEW YORK CITY/ PITTSBURGH (March 11, 2014) – (Courtesy Global Grind)

African-Americans, conservatives, and Black Republicans alike must understand and apply Reagan’s three-legged model to achieve racial equality today

 

“As noted repeatedly by conservative patron saint Ronald Reagan both before and after his ascendency to the White House, there is a three-legged stool upon which the set of conservative principles and a successful application of those values rest.

 

“Just the same when regarding racial justice: there is a three-legged stool upon which the pursuit of racial justice and a color-blind “…pursuit of happiness…” finds footing. Often with the case of pursuing this noble endeavor, the stool is hoisted and jabbed repeatedly with these principles on high display in order to beat back the lions of hatred, systematic oppression, and varying methods of injustice.

 

“Just as the three-legged stool of conservatism helped lead Reagan to sweeping victories in 1980 and 1984 and enabled him to lead sweeping economic and esteem recoveries for America during his two terms as president, the three-legged stool of racial justice is a time-tested and currently viable tool that must be implemented, adhered to, and championed by Black America today to usher in better times for African-Americans.”

The GOP Needs Return of Radical Republicans to Win War on Poverty

“We Radical Republicans of today must understand that our conservatism must impact more than a 401K plan, a marriage hall, and a uterus…”

NEW YORK CITY / PITTSBURGH  (MLK DAY -2014) –  “If we Republicans are to help America win the War on Poverty in the 21st century, it may be wise to look back to those that fought for change in the 19th century.

The Republican Party needs a strong dose of the spirit of our Radical Republicans past in order to lead millions of Americans out of the depths of this recession and the clutches of generational poverty. Just as the Civil War forever broke a social more within America that found the stench of slavery tolerable in any regard, the Great Recession has prompted a permanent elevation of civic standards, political leadership, and legislative vision that is prudent for fulfilling the essence of MLK’s dream.

Republican proposals such as the ones given by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) on the Senate floor must go further than providing access to lower taxes or school choice vouchers. Although financial investment in impoverished communities is necessary, it will take more than the similar ideas we have heard from Republicans and Democrats recently.

We Radical Republicans of today must understand that our conservatism must impact more than a 401K plan, a marriage hall, and a uterus. Today’s call to to fulfill a dream on this Day of Service must entail aligning our principles with a courage to bring about society-improving change in ways that are consistent with our party’s history while perhaps outside of our current comfort zone.”
