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 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.”
