Agitated by the vitriol hurled at Carson, one of the world’s preeminent pediatric neurosurgeons, I thought it was timely to remind everyone Carson, though a new face to the movement, certainly isn’t the only black conservative to be assailed by the left.
Check out Allen West's CPAC 2013 speech.
From Larry Elder to Thomas Sowell, here are some of the greatest quotes from black conservatives.
When will liberals stop living in the past? Specifically, when will they accept that they aren't all that stands between a wonderful, tolerant America and Jim Crow?
In 13 wards in Philadelphia, reports the Inquirer, President Barack Obama received 99 percent of the vote! A local Democratic ward leader outlined the strategy: "In this election, you had to point out to people what was at stake. And in many cases, they felt that the Romney doctrine was not going to favor the working man."
Speaking at the National Press Club in late September, black pastor Bishop E. W. Jackson unapologetically said it was time for black Americans to take a stand for what is right and called for a mass exodus from the Democrat Party due to the "irreconcilable conflict" between what the Democrat Party represents and their faith in God.
How is it that the party of Lincoln, a party that led the way in opposing slavery, Jim Crow laws, lynching, the KKK, poll taxes, led the way on integration and voting rights for black Americans, and top percentage wise, voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act in greater numbers than Democrats is now only getting about 10% of the black vote?
Have you heard of "Negro Spotting?" It's a liberal game on Twitter. Libs see a black person at the Republican National Convention and they laugh and laugh at the hilarity!
Whitney Houston struggled with something else that black Republicans and black non-Democrats can understand: ridicule and ostracism for "selling out," or "acting white," or not being "black enough."
Apparently, all black people walk, talk, eat, pray alike AND fit squarely in the Democrat Black box, basking in the glow of liberalism. There also is a “black issues manual,” which I have yet to see, that all blacks must adhere to. Wait, there’s more.
I want to quickly get to the heart of the matter. Cain’s suspension hurt me emotionally in a few ways. One of the ways it affected me was the way the media treated a black conservative. I myself am a black conservative and I can say that you are always a suspect. You are target practice for the left to throw their liberals darts at.
