Black Conservatives Aren’t Really Black?

As far as left-wing Democrats are concerned, black conservatives aren’t really black. To Democrats, black is a state-of-mind, not a color, and the only acceptable state-of-mind for an African American is that of a perpetually embittered, aggrieved victim of white racism. California Representative Karen Bass, who is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, articulated this sick and demented perspective in the immediate wake of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent death, when she suggested that Scalia’s replacement should be black, so as to finally give the Court the “African-American voice” that it allegedly lacks. “I think many people would like to see an African American on the Supreme Court,” Bass declared in spite of the fact that Clarence Thomas has held a seat on that Court for the past quarter-century. “I think to have an African-American voice that has definitely not been there since Thurgood Marshall would really be an incredible contribution to our country,” she added.

    The Age of Enlightenment is truly over. Done. Finished. We are now well into the new Dark times.

    Cutting to the chase what they are saying is that black conservatives are not racist communists like themselves.

    A black conservative is someone who isn’t being controlled by the state or Liberal elite such as the Democratic. Someone who doesn’t go around claiming to be a victim in life because of the colour of his/her skin especially if they are successful in life. Chris Rock for example loves to imply that he is a victim in life because he is black even though he is wealthy and successful in life. Individuals like him do this because they love to profit off other people’s failures especially black people. He represents the worst of black liberals.

      This is the culture that believes if you do well in High School you’re nothing but an Oreo.

      • Unpossible! Their teachers are geniuses. And heroes.

        And if not, well, that’s because you haven’t given them more money, you fascist.

          It’s not the teachers, it’s the black culture in US schools. Did some of my student teaching at a Buffalo public school while I was getting my credentials at Canisius College.

        I learned when I moved to a city that Indians who are likewise educated and/or successful are known as apples.

        What do we call white kids acting black? Glazed chocolate?

        And now I’m hungry.

          White kids acting Ghetto Black are just normally called unemployable.

    So—does this mean that White Liberals are Not really White?
    or-Do they just hate themselves because they are White?

      Option B, I would say.

  • Jabberwokk

    Kind of agree. He doesn’t have an african-american mindset. Just an American one. The only one any American should have.
