As I wrote in my book Guardian of the Republic in the chapter “Soul of our Souls,” slowly but surely a growing number of American blacks are reconnecting with conservative values and principles.
This isn’t something new to the black community contrary to what the liberal progressive media would have you believe. The conservative black movement dates back to Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington as well as others such as Asa Phillip Randolph. Of course “coming out of the closet” and declaring yourself a black conservative is certainly not as welcomed as exiting the closet to say you’re gay. However, more and more folks are demonstrating the moral courage to swim against the current.
This week, a new organization “came out” — the Black Conservatives Fund. According to their press release as reported in Communities Digital News, the Black Conservative Fund will begin raising funds and reaching out to the black community promoting constitutional policies and limited government. It is fully committed to supporting black conservatives who are dedicated to spreading the message of limited government and traditional values. The organization will support candidates through direct contributions in addition to web, TV, and radio advertisements.
More black conservatives come out of the closet
