Affirmative Action: The Fiscally-Conservative Choice and An Inconvenient Truth

In Articles on September 1, 2014 at 1:59 pm
Affirmative-Action-demonstration

There’s a choice conservatives must make on Affirmative Action, one affecting the next 100 years: theoretic principles or pragmatic success

 

NEW YORK CITY/ PITTSBURGH (April 24, 2014) – (Courtesy Global Grind)

 

“Now that the dust has settled from Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling on Affirmative Action and the University of Michigan’s admissions process – especially as it is being viewed (again) as more of a political statement from a partisan-leaning court than a legal analysis from our highest court – I feel free to speak politically about this controversial legal decision.

 

“I know that this statement (and, thus, this reality) drives many hardcore conservatives nuts. Me saying this statement will elicit more calls that I am a “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) or a “spy for the Democrats” that “race-baits”. I’m sure that this admission concerning Affirmative Action will not necessarily help my cache within Republican circles or my bottom line as a political commentator.

 

“That said, I care more about this nation and our future than I do about labels and popularity. So, therefore, here it goes…

 

“Fellow conservatives: whether you choose to admit it or not, affirmative action is the more conservative solution of the two in today’s America when choosing between an avenue for opportunity or a continuation of the economic implosion of our nation.

 

“Education is the gateway to the American Dream for the individual. Education is the weapon of choice in today’s geopolitical environment, one where wars are fought through technology, international trade, and economic pressures before the first bullet is fired. Whether it is through altruistic vision or self-serving patriotism, it is imperative that talents from all corners of our nation are discovered, embraced, and utilized immediately. With the rising costs of higher education and the increased obstacles in place due to the Great Recession, avenues of opportunity are vital to strengthen America to its peak ability at such a critical moment of history… Further, as a conservative, the choice goes past national sovereignty from a geopolitical perspective. America will not survive as a nanny-state country where a growing number of its residents are depending on government for financial support, whether that includes struggling families or businesses alike…If my conservative brethren want to reduce the cost of government and increase the role of the individual in the success of our communities as a whole (e.g., the “smaller government, bigger people” approach I have been noting) while regaining our esteem and prowess internationally, Affirmative Action cannot be hacked away at. It’s a simple choice: “pay” for the inconvenience of Affirmative Action for another 25-35 years (in the shadows of 100 years of Jim Crow policies that followed up the centuries-long institution of slavery) or risk paying for (literally) the devolving of America by way of the growth of the permanent underclass – a combination of economic, healthcare, and community realities often cemented by race.”

The Three-Legged Stool of Racial Justice

In Articles on September 1, 2014 at 1:33 pm

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.”
