Conservative Blacks Love Black People

Cynthia's Interests asks:

If you are Black and Republican, is it a Party requirement to automatically have a disdain for anything that represent or remind you of Blackness?

Quite contrary to the line pushed by the victimology aristocracy, we do like, and even love black people, and we know we are black. If we didn't how would you know by reading our websites?

Racial disclosure is not something required. It's a choice.

Look at the blogrolls of the Internet's conservative opinion makers. Usually you find links to other black Conservatives, and often links to black Leftists!!! Black Pride meets Free Speech!

Though we consider our conscious choices to often be more important than our born-in-skin-color, we recognize that our skin color played a role in where we are today. We also see the fact that others with our same skin color are often in sad positions. The issue here is that we think the best way to address the issues of blacks, and others, is to face them by putting our best foot forward and do the most we can do on our own.

The left seems to want to blame someone else, or demand apologies, or beg for favors from others. While we must balance the politics of leveraging our interests and using available advantages, we should not force others to help us because of their guilt about what was done against us. We must be able to pedal our talents and virtues based on our talents and virtues alone. Only then can we leverage those assets into demands for more from others.

That's why I'm calling my blog: Black&BibleBeautiful. Back when black became beautiful in the 1960's, no one stopped to give thought to content, defining the content of beautiful. It became a no-man's land out there. "There was no king in Israel, and every man did that which was right in his own eyes." Every since then the left has had free reign at defining "the black experience", we threw away our hot combs in exchange for "cultural stait-jackets."
Would love to link this to my page.

I have a question for you.

Why is it that most of the articles by public "Black conservatives" which address the Black community, rarely point out the people and/or groups that are doing positive things to address issues in the Black community?

Could that be part of the reason why public "Black conservatives" get a negative reaction?

Valid point to a degree. I think however you may want to consider that when we glow about about school choice, we are usually talking about black people. When we talk about faith based inititives, we are often talking about the successes of black people. I can only speak for myself with certaninty, but I am certainly not alone in the belief that staying in line with the more conservative principles is a tougher course to follow, and in expecting such from black people, we are setting a high bar that we believe we can reach.

The other reason is that it is easier to chastise those walking out of step than it is to trumpet those who are in step. This is the same for the MSM. As much as they deserve their scarlet "B" for bias, they could also be cut some slack because it is ususlly more interesting to hear about (or watch info about) bad news than good news.
On another note...
