Diary of the Black Conservative

A glimpse into my upbringing

"Why do you talk white?"

"Stop acting white!"

"You know you're black, right?"

"You're an oreo?"

"White people only like you because you act like them"

Growing up, I was fed the black victim mentality. The white man was to blame for my problems, and I shouldn't and couldn't trust white people. Despite all the mass influence I was the first in my family to be a Conservative Reublican, to my family's dismay.

A glimpse in to my high school,

"How come you the only black in Theatre and Debate"

"You're tall, why don't you play basketball?"

"Why are you the only black in show choir?

"How come you don't have many black friends?"

"You're still black ya know?"

White folk talk? No such thing.

A glimpse into college and adulthood

"Why are you going to a college where there are no blacks?"

"You registered as a republican, why? White folks don't care about you."

"Why are you dating a white boy, you know he's racist and sees you as a ni**er"

"Democrats care about blacks, not those rich white folks"

The truth is Democrats are anti-black. They have just become far more sophistacated in their hatred, using government programs (via welfare) and low wages to suppress and destroy the black family. The Democrats use these programs as a power wedge to keep those on the liberal-plantation voting Democrat, all the while reducing black progress. The Democrats still promote the yoke of slavery for all poor people. Feeding the victim mentality and keep hate brewing.

It is the Republican party that wants all people to succeed using their God given talents and personal responsibility. They support all people achieving greatness as the sole prescription to happiness.

The Democrats claim a switch in ideology in the attempt to steal the history of the Republican Party for themselves, as they cannot be very proud of the history of their own party.


I am not really into politics, but I do know why I'm a conservative. All of this comes down worldview.

Great hub - I often wonder why the black community seems so dysfunctional, esp the ever-increasing numbers of fatherless children in black communities and their drop out rates. It seems like black leaders like Rev. Sharpton do a disservice to the black community. someone needs to stand up and be honest and let people know that welfare isn't the answer.

Hey Cari, I totally agree, its the victim/entitlement mentality. If we got rid of that, it would be a great start. Thanks for reading.

This Hub is absolutely awesome! I loved all the videos, especially the little one called "The Liberal Abuse of the English language." I might write a Hub about that little vigntette. Thank you very much for this great Hub.

Well, I'm late to the Hub party here, but glad to have found it regardless of the timing. Good work and excellent insight, not to mention the courage to take a stand based on your own study of what's what. This page popped up as a "Related Hub" to my latest, which happened to be a tongue-in-cheek "press release" about the Democrats switching from the donkey as a symbol to the (ahem!) parrot--since they're so good at parroting the party line of the day.

Always happy to meet someone who thinks for herself.:)

Voted Up & More.
