Social Network of African American Conservatives & Moderates
These are a few of the secular reason why I’m against same sex marriage but of course there are religious reasons why I’m against it as well. Our Christian faith helped sustain us during the dark days of slavery and Jim Crow and it was our Christian religious leaders like Martin Luther King, Ralph David Abernathy and others - who through their faith, determination, and sacrifices - broke the back of legal discrimination in this country. There is not…Continue
I was disappointed, but sadly not surprised, to see yet again, another person take something at face value instead of actually looking into the matter before posting it. I've been on CNN, MSNBC, radio-one (black entertainment radio), etc. and all of the stories on Cain/Bachmann are pretty much the same...something along the lines of:
"they say they support founding principles and the…
The comparison of Socialist Icon Vladimir Lenin to President Barack Obama may seem either provocative to some or off the beaten path to others. No, the recent endorsement of Obama’s reelection bid by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev (http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/medvedev-endorses-obamas-reelec...) did not influence this comparison. The two world leaders… Continue

Every since the Voting Rights Act, the Black Vote has been manipulated in one sense or another. The Miami Dade County Mayoral race is just one of the most egregious examples in recent history that I’ve seen.
While everyone has the right to run for public office just like everyone has the right to vote, the presence of Luther Campbell on the ballot as a candidate to run the 4th largest county in the U.S. with almost 2.5 million people, 29,000 employees, 35 municipalities and a budget…Continue

“The Life of the Republican party lay in its devotion to justice, liberty and humanity. When it abandoned or slighted these great moral ideas and devoted itself to materialistic measures, it no longer appealed to the heart of the nation, but to its pocket.”
These words appear in the autobiography Life and Times of Frederick Douglass. Douglass was a former slave who taught himself and others to read while in slavery. He refused to accommodate to the evil…Continue

Smiley received vitriol for saying Obama was to be held accountable just as we have held other elected officials accountable. He received death threats because of his open criticism of the President and because he did not adhere to the party line…Continue

Many a profound thing has been said on my radio shows recently. Andre Harper gave me a better understanding of how to get through the “struggle” and how it’s a private, not a state matter, to “get the booty” [Andre Harper on The Exceptional Conservative Show]! I would not have heard such poignancy on FOX Cable News or CNN news programs. I have heard Kamal Saleem describe…Continue
It does not matter how much interaction I have had growing up and going to school and, then war, with "Blacks,"
I still feel apprehensive commenting on your community's issues because of my race.
However, it is the "grace of…Continue

I can’t wait until the Tea Party Movement is over! That’s right, I said it. Not because I hate the Tea Party. To the contrary, I love the Tea Party. I am the Tea Party. I am a young, middle class mother who is alarmed at the disastrous habits of an oversized government and feels obligated to get involved politically for the sake of my children’s futures. I have attended several Tea Party events. I’ve met wonderful, kind patriotic Americans who are motivated to pull this…Continue

Why so many Move-On-Up members have not posted a profile picture? I hope it is not because you are afraid your liberal friends will find out that you have might have conservative views and enjoy collaborating with a few likeminded people. I am discovering that many of my brothers and sisters are politically liberal, but socially conservative. I am not sure if this observation is paradoxically. Any thoughts!
