Black Families Hurt by Magazine's War on Conservatives

If Democrats could solicit continued black support by listing all of the ways in which they have benefited from that support over the past 40 or so years they would surely do so. The very fact that they do not is proof that they cannot. Instead they continue to tell blacks that they should support Democrats because their lot in life is so oppressed and limited. This despite their past support. When will blacks catch on that they are getting nothing but condescending lip service? Until then they are just assuring the Democrats that they are as gullible and obediently controllable as the Democrats take them to be.

Dear Ebony,

I do not have high hopes, given the way Ebony treats black non-liberals, that you will review my new book, "Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives, Eight Hours." It is, in the end, about the importance of fathers -- and the damage done to a child who grows up without one.

Why do I know you will ignore my book despite its examination of the most important issue facing "black America"? Your magazine treats black conservatives as if they were the enemy, that they bring nothing valid to the discussion.

Ebony magazine, a monthly staple of American black life...
