Republicans for Black Empowerment is on a mission to raise the value of black America's political capital by increasing awareness of the upside offered by conservative solutions to the black community's concerns. For over 40 years, black voters have staunchly aligned themselves with the Democratic Party on Election Day. However, an increasing number have begun questioning the wisdom of supporting: (i) social policies rooted in low expectations and government dependency; (ii) economic and tax policies that stifle economic growth, job creation, personal savings and investment; and (iii) education policies that refuse to subject public schools to the competitive pressures of school choice, leaving parents of predominantly black students in failing schools without the choices enjoyed by middle and upper-class Americans.

We believe misinformation rather than adequate 'return on investment' cements black allegiance to the Democratic Party. To that end, Republicans for Black Empowerment seeks to raise awareness, provoke greater critical thinking and increase Republican elected officials through executing a program aligned with four long-term goals:


  1. Provide a national networking infrastructure allowing black conservatives to discover one another more easily and stimulating the development of grassroots networks of activists across the country.
  2. Encourage members to become active in their local Republican party apparatus, respectively, through pursuing leadership roles at all levels including precinct, county and state leadership.
  3. Provide forums (i.e., online and offline) for black conservatives to exchange ideas and to raise awareness of alternate political solutions to addressing the concerns of the black electorate.
  4. Support political candidates with platforms aligned with improving the lives of all Americans, emphasizing (i) tax and economic policies conducive to optimal growth and job creation, (ii) urgent public education reform and (iii) minimal size of government.

Our membership is comprised of a grassroots coalition of concerned citizens from all ethnic groups and regions of the United States. Please join and support our efforts.

Joseph Hunter ― Take Our Country Back from the Plantation: 2 Things Republicans Should Stop Saying Immediately

In his latest article, the black conservative writer warns the GOP - especially black conservatives - about adopting rhetoric that hurts the party's image with minorities.


He writes: "Good politics pertains as much to good policies as it does to good rhetoric. If Republicans learned nothing else from the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, we should have learned that image and rhetoric matters–perhaps more than anything else. Our mission, to increase the number of Republican voters, begins with a careful analysis of our public statements. To that end, we should avoid mindless cliches, and statements so inflammatory that they detract from their own message. 

I’ve created a long list of things Republicans say (and shouldn’t), along with my rationales."

Akil Alleyne — That Nun's Quote Doesn't Prove That Pro-Lifers Are Hypocrites

Many pro-lifers actually DO believing in assisting pregnant women and new mothers with the challenges of pregnancy, childbirth and childrearing--they just believe in giving that assistance personally, voluntarily & directly rather than through coercive government intervention.

 

Africa, Capitalism, and the 'Elimination of Poverty': Leon Louw on Africa's Incredible Growth



Thank goodness people are 'exploiting' Africa by buying things from it, by investing in it, by employing people in it," says Leon Louw, author, policy analyst, and executive director the South Africa-based think tank The Free Market Foundation. "The worst thing that would happen is if people decide to stop exploiting Africa."

The statement might sound provocative, but Louw is responding to a a pair of critiques he hears often: That economic development is akin to exploitation and that the gap between rich and poor is growing dangerously large. But Louw says that the focus on economic inequality is a distraction from a more important metric.

"The world is experiencing the most amazing accomplishment of humanity: The virtual elimination of poverty," says Louw. "It's strange that as that happens, we are talking about it as if there is more of it."

Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller interviewed Louw about how his anti-Apartheid activism turned him from a Marxist into a libertarian, the factors driving Africa's incredible growth, the lessons other countries can learn from Botswana, South Africa, and even Rwanda, and how mobile phones and digital currencies are changing life in the developing world.

Ajibola Adigun — Religious Fundamentalism Taking Hold in Nigeria?


The Nigerian reformer, free-market activist and writer, reflects on the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in Nigeria:


He writes: "In a state in northern Nigeria where Mallam  Ibrahim Shekarau, its former governor, publicly burned secular books eight years ago, nine people have been sentenced to death for blasphemy.  Abdul Inyas, Hajia Mairo Ibrahim and seven others were convicted of disrespecting the Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be unto Him) and sentenced to death in a closed sharia court in Kano during the fasting month of Ramadan.

This is not unusual in Nigeria’s most populous state and second largest city. A religious riot killed over 100 people in 2001. Amina Lawal was sentenced to death by stoning in 2002 for adultery, resulting in the boycott and relocation of the Miss World beauty contest that was scheduled to have been held in Nigeria. Her conviction was later overturned after an appeal buoyed by a global outcry. Earlier this year in April, churches were burnt and a pastor’s daughter was killed in the process. The present governor, Mallam Abdullahi Ganduje, presided over the destruction of truckloads of alcoholic drinks.

In a state where they have burned books, it is no surprise they are killing people for dissent and punishing people who have chosen a different lifestyle, a right the constitution of the country allows in all parts of the federation."

Hillary’s Being Trumped along with the GOP

The only Republican candidate who’s able to get more media coverage than Liberal Empress Hillary Clinton is Donald Trump. There’s a reason why Trump is surging. Because conservatives are tired of the GOP (white boys) establishment ignoring them. Maybe if the Republican Party spent more time trying to be inclusive of all conservatives – and […]

Why Was Carson the Only GOP Candidate to Speak at Minority-Filled DC GOP Event?

Republican presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson won the DC Republican Party 2016 GOP Straw Poll at a reception held July 20, 2015. It’s not surprising since Carson was the only Republican 2016 candidate to accept the group’s invitation to speak at the reception, which was brimming over with minorities.
