Dilemma of a Black Conservative


“I feel like a Black Republican, money keeps comin in. But I can’t turn my back on the hood, I got love for them.” – Jay-Z

The dilemma of Black conservatism is a serious one. Depending on our level of consciousness some of us may choose to live like Kanye West and some of us like Jay-Z. Conservatism is a vile term among many Black people simply because it is often associated with white supremacy and economic oppression. The fact is, many Black people think and act conservative, we just don’t practice it politically due to our racial bonds. Kanye West and Jay-Z are two Black conservatives with politically different views. One openly praises political conservatism and one fights against it.

Conservatism in America is often associated with white supremacists and racists. Take a pick from any of the known white supremacist organizations in the country and you will find they identify themselves as Christian conservatives. Religious conservatism is the belief that one’s religion is the chosen of God therefore your actions are guided and accepted by your God. That goes for all religions, as is evident with the rise of Islamic extremism throughout the world.

White supremacists believe that Christianity is the guide for all aspects of life, be it political, financial, social, or environmental, therefore they go about destroying the environment because “God put resources on Earth for them to use”. They actively seek to convert Black people to their religious ideology; not to improve the lives of Black people but to individually covet favor from their God in hopes that they will join him in Heaven.

The problem is that once a Black person is converted to religious conservatism his status does not change. He may feel that he has gained the world but he is still considered a servant to the white race. Any injustice that is inflicted on a Black person by a white person in this condition is seen as the norm of a master and slave relationship. The only alternative for religious Blacks (who have a conscience) is to get political, as in the case of Martin Luther King.

Any culture that is built on the exploitation of Black people under the excuse of religious superiority will ultimately become unjust and oppressive. Oppression is the exercise of authority or power in a burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner. Many white people will argue that they “don’t have a racist bone in their body” but they do nothing to fix the systems of oppression. They will see Black people getting gunned down by the police on a daily basis and they will do nothing.

They will see Black people being denied service at businesses and they will do nothing. They will see Black people being railroaded into prisons by the corrupt court system and they will do nothing. Their psychological condition is the result of a moral superiority complex created by religion. For that reason, Black people are scared to associate themselves with what most white people associate themselves with, which is political conservatism.

Contrary to popular belief, Black people are not an unethical race. We are hardworking, fun loving people who believe in getting good education and maintaining strong family ties. We have high ambitions of becoming Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, and Business owners. All these things require supreme self-discipline, hard work, and financial sacrifice to achieve. Those of us who make it to the top of society fall into two categories.

The first one (Kanye West) attributes his achievements to his own hard work and sacrifices so he abandons his past. He begins to think like the white man politically, fiscally, and religiously. He dumps his Black girl and picks up a white girl that everyone in sports and Hollywood has slept with simply because of his own deranged ego. Then he starts to praise the most race baiting president in history as his hero.

The second one (Jay Z) acknowledges that although he worked hard to achieve success he must pay homage to those who helped to break down many of the barriers that white supremacists put in our paths to limit our success. He maintains a fiscal and religious conservative view but he refuses to break his racial bonds, therefore he shuns the national political conservative system that enforces the oppression of Black people.

Jay-Z works behind the scenes to improve the lives of Black Americans because he knows that no matter how rich and successful he gets, he’s “Still Nigga”.

Trump Part of a Racist Agenda

Most people may not know it but Trump is a part of a racist agenda.

Trump has once again stepped into a proverbial “shit hole” by offending Black immigrants and people of color in America and around the world. Recently, while in a private meeting regarding setting new quotas for the intake of new immigrants and refugees, the self-righteous fascist, was said to have blurted out that America should focus on letting in people from Norway instead of “shit Hole” places like Afraka and Haiti. The leaked comment set off a wave of backlash from news media and his political opponents who have bombarded him by accusing him of being a racist.

The initial response from Trump and his butt kissers was the same as usual. They rebutted the accusations by suggesting that Black people are only angry because we don’t understand Trump’s America First philosophy while those who do, support him all the way. Then when Trump saw that the force of decency was overpowering his wall of defenses he Tweeted out that he was misquoted and didn’t say what he was alleged to have said. Unfortunately for Trump, conscience is a powerful force because a couple of his own Republicans came forward to confirm that they did hear him make the racist remarks about Afrakans and Haitians.   

Although he continues to deny it, these new remarks from Trump are only the latest in a pattern that suggest Trump is indeed a racist. A racist is a person of one race who while in a position of power and influence discriminate against a person of another race. The determining factors as to whether someone is a racist or not are ultimately based on subjectivity and not objectivity. He can keep denying that he is a racist but his actions will always reveal his true character. One thing is certain, if Trump is not a racist then he is a racist sympathizer. Furthermore, his words and actions are clearly based on an ideology of White Supremacy.

White Supremacy is an ideological view of reality that is held dearly by some people of European decent in which they believe that the Caucasian race is the master race on the planet. They believe that they are superior to other races in every way including the building of prosperous civilized societies. Other races may join their societies but only as servants. In America today, White Supremacists believe that the health and vitality of America has been compromised by their own people who have deviated from the true ideology to become Liberal minded.

White Supremacists believe that over time Liberalism has only served to corrupt America by allowing Blacks and other races to flourish and gain access to the “American Dream”. And since Black people are a morally inferior race their freedom only serves as a corrupting force in society. The mandate of the White Supremacy movement therefore is to “make America great again” by implementing a series of mandates which include; taking back political and economic power from Liberals, removing undesirables from the country, limiting immigration from non-white countries, and re-establishing order within the country.  

Trump himself may not feel as though he is a racist but he has found support for his power-hungry endeavors among White Supremacists. He may also feel that he is smart enough to walk the razors edge between his personal ambitions and indecency but no man is an Island. You cannot go around calling whole races and nations “shit hole” places to appease your supporters and not face the retribution of the other 85 to 95% of humanity. All Afrakans, people of color, and white people who endeavor to live using a higher level of Sanity must never be intimidated by the White Supremacist agenda.

Conscientious Colin Kaepernick Is A Hero


Colin KaepernickColin Kaepernick should be considered a hero for Black America. He has decided, against tremendous pressure from both inside and out, to defy one of America’s long-standing traditions all because his conscience told him to. By taking the stance of not standing during the national anthem to protest systemic Police brutality against Black Americans Colin Kaepernick is risking losing his career in the NFL along with millions of dollars in potential earnings.

A hero is someone who is willing to engage in personal sacrifice for the greater good of others. In life there are countless instances where people could be considered heroes for the things they do to help others. Most everyday heroes never get recognized and if you ask them how they feel about their non-recognition they might tell you that it really doesn’t matter to them at all. I’ll bet that if you ask Colin Kaepernick if he considers himself a hero for his actions he will say the same. That is because conscientious heroes see their actions as a duty to their community and to their country.

So why is it that some people seem to be more conscientious than others? Forget the unsympathetic racists whose views have their consciences locked away in dungeons guarded by ignorance, this is about Black psychology from a Black perspective. We have seen some of Colin Kaepernicks Black teammates as well as other Black NFL stars come out against his actions. Some others are saying that while they may agree with his message, the NFL is the wrong place to engage in social and political protests.

The truth is most Black sports stars and celebrities are scared to voice their true inner feelings for fear of losing their careers. Their consciences are suppressed by their desires. Conscience and Desire are polar opposites in human nature. On another level can we really blame some athletes for disconnecting from the struggle for Black liberation? Society teaches that we should function using a “save thyself” mentality, especially when we grow up in hardship and poverty. When we become rich our desire to maintain “the good life” forces us to find excuses for why we don’t want to speak our conscience.

Black people like Colin Kaepernick are anomalies and should be considered heroes. He is not only very conscientious he is smart too. He has deduced that the most effective use of his status as a top rated NFL Quarterback is to protest where it will get the most exposure. He could easily have joined a few Black Lives Matter marches during the NFL off-season and a few news reports might have picked up his story. Maybe he did do that but no one noticed or mainstream media chose to ignore it.

Some Black people are calling Colin Kaepernick crazy because they truly cannot understand his motives. Maybe like the actor Jesse Williams he doesn’t come from poverty so loss to him doesn’t hold much weight. Whatever the case, it is conscience that builds courage and courage that accepts sacrifice. Those are the things that makes heroes in my eyes.
