Black Families Hurt by Magazine's War on Conservatives

I watched a documentary on Bob Dylan made by one of Hollywood's biggest name directors. At a certain point in Dylan's career he strapped on a telecaster, an electric guitar, and formed a great band and his style changed from acoustic folk to more of a rock sound. When he was about to start a live set somewhere in the uk with his band an audience member screamed out "Judas". This insult was directed at Dylan's transformation. Dylan's response was to turn to his band and tell them, "play it F'ing Loud!" Great letter Larry, black conservatism must be loud anywhere and everywhere!

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...
