"...Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question.
"What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?”
I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple.
I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they are to be born in the greatest land of opportunity on the planet.
Ironically, all of the blacks who are given big microphones to tout the horrors of being black in America are wealthy. The MSM and Democratic Party viciously and relentlessly block any and all patriotic black voices from the main stage – that is, anyone touting achieving success and wealth the old-fashioned way, via education, hard work, and morally right choices. And we know they attempt to silence such voices because their mission is not to empower blacks, but rather to further their big-government socialist/progressive agenda.
Now that America is burning in the flames of racial tension and polarization, it is crucial that Republicans/conservatives finally reach out to black America. I am not suggesting that they offer blacks a Democrat-lite, "America sucks and is somewhat racist, so we will lower standards and give you free stuff" message. Heaven forbid.
I am talking about taking a pedal-to-the-metal conservative message to black America, boldly articulating conservatism's virtues and why it is the best for all Americans. Why it is the most direct route to success.
While I have no problem with packaging our message to better connect with diverse audiences, our rock-solid conservative principles must remain intact. Republicans must reject using the Democrats' insidious tactic of dividing Americans into victimized voting blocs (blacks, women, Hispanics, and so on). After convincing various groups of Americans that they are victims, the Dems request their votes to use as protection money to keep their white racist sexist Republican/conservative enemies at bay. It is disgusting and evil."
Well said, Mr Marcus.
There's not a shred of doubt in my mind that if some field analysis were conducted in America as to which black communties are doing fine, which black people are well-to-do and successful (with the exception of those entertainment idiots who get rich by the ability to sell idiotic jungle sounds to losers)... you would find that they almost always adhere to a conservative lifestyle.
... I am equally convinced - make that, it should be crystal clear to everyone - that the legions of angry black mobs in Ferguson and all the other hellholes where blacks live in squalor... all listen to the siren song of leftist mantras.
America needs preachers. But preachers who spread the gospel of Conservatism among the black community, and expose the false 'progressive' prophets (the NAACP up front), if you allow Outlaw Mike some Bible slang.
The GOP would do well to heed Mr Marcus' advice.
