    Will Blacks with conservative views ever be accepted in Black communities?

    What are the road blocks that continue to hinder Black inclusion into the American dream?

    Of course they will. They'll never be accepted by the civil rights establishment, though, which has to pimp poverty and dependence in order to preserve its own privileged status and wealth, nor will they ever be accepted by the demwit party, which mines millions of votes and a great deal of money out of preservation of that same poverty and dependence.

      we know why the poverty pimps are fighting it but at some point Blacks have to reach a stage where they feel included. Will race always be a dividing line between conservatism and national unity?

      No, all unrealities erode in the clean rain of experience. The political Big Lie that keeps black Americans enslaved to one political party's power interests cannot be maintained forever.

    Prejudice is one road block.

    But many blacks are conservative and even supported a 77-year-old white guy for president -- Dr. Ron Paul.

    There is no "the black community." There are many black communities, some of them might even be totally conservative.

    Another road block is stereotyping like the OP tends to do.

    Another road block is self-perception. Some African Americans make it despite the supposed barriers. Some have read Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich."

      Thanks for your answer. "Black community" refers to the commonality of race and history that a people share. I am aware that there is extreme geographical fragmentation and political diversity among Blacks.

    I agree with lone 77 star, there are many Black communities with varying ideals and expectations so "acceptance" would be dependent upon each of these smaller communities and prejudices can definitely be a factor. There are a variety of roadblocks that can hinder inclusion but I don't believe they are insurmountable as evidenced by the successful black people in this country.

    Planning and preparation are key to reaching the American dream and how one conducts themselves is also very important. There is also a HUGE problem in many black communities where communication about finances & education are concerned. Too many black people don't talk to their kids about money, credit, etc. and let kids learn things on their own which usually means, the hard way (making lasting and damaging mistakes that could have been avoided).

    The same goes for education. In many black families, if no one has experienced college, let alone graduated in that family, then there aren't discussions or even attempts to learn about it even for the possible benefit for improving the lives of the youth in that family. I have seen this lack of communication affect many of my classmates lives negatively.

    Communication is a big problem that I can see and I'm sure that there are others. However, to reach the American Dream each person will have a variety of obstacles unique to them. But whatever obstacles can be removed by the parents'/loved ones involvement and communication, should definitely be talked about as part of the planning and preparation for a successful and independent life.

      Great answer. I am sure that many Black families are doing the things that you suggest. I just don't think that there are enough political options.

    I'm not black and therefore do not feel I can answer this beyond speculation. However, I would like to ask a closely related question: Would they want to be? Typically (but not always), conservative blacks are also educated suburbanites unaccustomed to the crime and violence often associated with the inner city and many low-income neighborhoods. I'm not sure they have much in common with those people beyond the color of their skin and would perhaps prefer to seek companionship among like-minded individuals, black or otherwise.

      I pose the question from the position of not being American. I am Black with some conservative views but the only obstacle to political conservatism I see is the (perception) among most Blacks that the Republican party is a haven for racists.

      I agree with your speculation in that there are many black people that didn't grow up in inner cities and were exposed to different ideas, attitudes, and most important, opportunities.
