The first blacks elected to Congress after the Civil War were Republicans. Rev. Hiram Rhodes Revels was the the first black Senator elected and his peer Joseph Hayne Rainey was the first black elected to the House of Representatives. I’m excited to see the creation of the…Continue

Over the years, my family & friends have known that I was a registered Republican and I was tolerated for this affiliation. But now, since President Obama’s first campaign and his subsequent re-election, some of my friends have ‘un-friended,’ me. My family still tolerates me, but, there is now some distance in some formerly close relationships.
I wanted to take this time to explain a few things, and let the chips fall where they may. You know me well, but, you don’t know…Continue

We gave President Obama over 90 percent of our vote.The “black pride” factor should take a back seat to our issues. We should now look at how Obama is not addressing issues/concerns of the Black community.

I do not seek to win; I seek to serve.
Why do I say and believe this? Because, simply put, our state is a republican form of government, where the people rule through their elected representatives. Our state representatives are elected to serve the constituents of their respective districts. These seats are not seats of power, where one aspires to exert influence or control; rather, they are to be seats of service, the ultimate display of public stewardship.

I do not consider myself to be particularly prophetic, though I know some who read this will say 'you are out of your mind I can't be around you.' I know that some will distance themselves from what I am saying because they will feel I am not a good Negro. Some will say I 'don't know how they do business in this State or County.' Some will say I 'don't help the cause by saying such things.' Others will stay away because they don't like confrontation. Others…Continue

For decades, the President of the United States has arguably been the most powerful person in the whole world. So, what does it mean for the prospect of our children’s future when the President of the United States stands boldly and says, “They wouldn’t let me.”
I am confused as to how a Presidency that began on the premise of “Yes We Can,” can still motivate by saying, “They wouldn’t let me.”
I question how anyone can continue to depict the Democrats as the real…

It was so refreshing to hear that black actress Stacey Dash is supporting Mitt Romney for president. I sent a tweet thanking Ms Dash for not allowing the brain dead racists on the Left to intimidate her.

What Adjectives or Superlatives would serve adequate to describe or place into proper perspective the Incisively Brilliant and Eloquent Speech of the Former United States Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice to the Republican National Convention ?
Dr. Rice's delivery was in a word Flawless ( Without the Aid of , OR Assistance of, a TelePrompTer ) Poignant and Immensely Substantive. Her Cascading Oratory rendered ALL in attendance Breathless and in Clamor.…Continue

Given that we have a black president, and some of his supporters have conveniently discovered that criticizing him is tantamount to racism, it’s hardly surprising that I’m responding to an article — in a mainstream publication, no less — entitled “…Continue

Recently, I had lunch with a very powerful Republican elected official who is a good friend of mine. We have extremely candid conversations, especially about race (he is white). Out of nowhere he asked me what was the reason Blacks have a historical affinity for Cadillac…Continue
