Conservatism and the Black Community

Conservatism and the Black Community

Although there are many conservative principles that resonate with a large portion of America, ultimately, the root word itself has a major problem with black and minority communities. What world would African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans and the many minorities in the country would like to conserve?

Is it the world of the 1950’s when racial tension, segregation and unfair laws held back minorities? Is it the current world in which some of our Latino brothers and sisters are considered illegal? Is is the world in which Native Americans were and are continually forcibly moved from their land and sent on reservations to rot?

I think conservatism works when people understand their rights, know that there is a system that will preserve and protect those rights and, the most important part, have had the opportunity to experience and enjoy those rights.

There have been certain periods of history when all three worked for certain groups. Although very still limited, the reconstruction period was a good period for African American men who wanted more for their community. However, when you consider not only those rights, but economic activity, wealth distribution, education and in general the social and economic ladder in this country, things get weird.

To take it a step further, it was Adam Smith, a 18th century economist who described the concept of the “invisible hand”. This invisible force basically allows local economies to thrive. Those with a valuable service and/or product can sell it depending on need in the community.

So, what happens when laws, policies and practices limit, stop and even destroy such productive economic activity in a community for generations? That “invisible hand” is stomped on and it’s fingers are broken.

You get what we call the present day African American community across the country (for the most part), blighted commercial and residential corridors with people who feel and understand to be marginalized without the belief that they can change their destiny. This perspective comes from not wanting to change but from experience of generations.

For years black businesses have gotten the short end of the stick in loans, real estate and opportunity. This leads to less investment, opportunity and for many African American’s less of a desire to change a system that has basically decided it will not change unless it destroys a large part of itself in the process. The Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement and even now with the Tea Party movement (although not on the same scale) are good examples.

For any conservative movement to work in minority communities it can’t come from a perspective of wanting to preserve, to protect or to undo. It has to come from the desire to really see change in these struggling and in some circumstances dying communities. It has to come from that passion and drive to see minorities doing better for themselves and their communities.

Uncle Ruckus of the Week: Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson

Did you ever see the Dave Chappelle Show and catch the skit of the Blind, Black Racist? No, don’t worry because I’ve posted a video of a person who is not just against his own people, he hates women. For this, he is my Uncle Ruckus of the Week. Did I mention he is also conservative and a tea party fellow?

“…Thank God for slavery.” Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson


The ladies of The View have some words for the good reverend.





Black Conservatives Tell US Who WE Are

This video clip supports my last post…WE have people who see themselves more aligned as a political party than as Black People. This is very telling how these panelists sit on their high horse talking about Black people as if they have been enlightened and are no longer Black. WE are conservative! WE are progressive! Listen to these people talking about Black people vote primarily based on race. How insulting and ignorant is this? Just look how comfortable they are in speaking about Our People as if they have transcended US.

I’m this I’m that…not once do they say I’m a Black Man first. I love my people first. Nope, I love the constitution, I love being a conservative…

These people want to convert you to convert to being a conservative voter, not a conservative person…this is about how you vote people. They even reference that Black People already have the values and morals of the party they just don’t vote like we want them to. Yet, they say liberals/progressives are your slave masters. Both sides want to own your vote isn’t that the truth. If you have morals and believe in the same God as them why don’t they see you as equal? Because they want to have you vote for their people. Keep it real with Black People.

Wonder Woman Needs Your Support!


Wonder Woman Needs Your Support!

Right Wisconsin is looking for their “RightWisconsin/RightWoman.” I am offering my services. I believe I have worked hard to bring you news from the right and I have kept you informed overall as best I can. More importantly, I founded “The Umoja Project” which is our very own historic Black Conservative Movement in Milwaukee and Wisconsin which is growing by leaps and bounds. It is no easy task.  The Umoja Project not only is a movement but we educate everyone to conservative issues impacting the Black community and our state. We are a platform to express how we feel and why we feel this way. We teach and incorporate conservative solutions as taught by our ancestors from the motherland. We plant seeds on solid ground for a bountiful harvest. We create a setting for blacks and people from other cultures to gather together and learn how to best work together to end divisions and share common values.


I am most proud that our legacy is being instilled in our kids. We meet with them and show them there are other ways. We are stopping the very process that is stunting them. We are showing them to analyze everything, including us. Accept nothing, achieve everything! The Umoja Project is truly changing the direction of Milwaukee and Wisconsin.

There is nothing remotely like our project in the state and we do a lot of good work that is sorely needed in Wisconsin. We will continue to work with everyone to fill voids that need to be filled. Thus we continue to grow.

An example of some of my published work… (This is for subscribers to the site if you have an account.)


So I am humbly asking for your vote.  The following are the categories and the directions for the nomination process. Suggestions: I am attempting the “Innovator Award.” However the “Iron Lady” Award is also nice. The link below will take you to the nomination page and I hope you will choose me as your Right Wisconsin Woman! I thank you in advance your vote and any consideration. Nominations are accepted until August 18th!!
September 18th we will find out the winner of the Margaret Thatcher award.

In advance I thank the Milwaukee Drum ( on whose shoulders I stand for giving me the platform to even get to create a movement. Secondly, I thank Brother Frederick Meade for constant advice and wisdom. Thirdly, I thank everyone here who reads my posts, agrees, disagrees and keeps the Drum beating in me when I am not at my best. It is not always easy to be WW.

I approve this message :) and Game on.

The Black Conservative Town Hall 2013

FOX’s Sean Hannity Show hosted a Black Conservative Town hall and since then this video has spread like wild fire. It brought up issues many people liberal and conservative alike could relate to. Blacks began to find that there are not wide divisions between their conservative counterparts and themselves. This could be a great start for Blacks as we need to come together and start healing and talking to form the new Underground Railroad. Seeing that we really have more in common than differences will start to break down the walls of division and help us to start to focus on the true enemy that keeps us from moving forward.
This is a great video that needs to be shared in its entirety. Many people want to know about the elusive Black Conservative. Well here is a segment of us in a town hall answering questions and talking about issues and matters near and dear to our hearts.
I am sure if people listen to this with an open mind they will find some pieces where they can agree and find common bonds. The differences, well as I always say; We shall have to agree to disagree. However this video is very interesting and is great food for discussion.
Peace Family,

IJS For the Week!

Deborah Tyler Haywood Why are the 2 groups here saying NONE of our Wisconsin writers talked to, no returned calls, nothing, not part of the staff. I too submitted several inquiries to ask before this public post. This is the FIRST post. We have 2 major groups neither was contacted. Fact. When it comes to outreach no one was contacted. So we met to contact your group because we are easily missed. No one contacted us. No one. I am talking WI Black Conservative groups who are active frontline members representing various right think tanks not what white folks consider “right.” WI leaders in the black community making strides. How could you know who these people are, all due respect. Not to argue but this is where right gets it wrong. You simply do not know the black right front line, nor most times do you care. Then you tend to put up people who are like James T, nice but far removed from true Black Conservatives. We should chat. You have much I can show you, many to meet. I would be happy to connect you.

Deborah Tyler Haywood These writers would be selected by who? Black Conservatives? Which ones? No offenses Mr. Sykes but how many new votes have they been bringing you? You need us! We have our pulse on the community but no backing, $ , or support. This would be beneficial for all if anyine dared went out of the comfort zone. I think you would enjoy it too! :)

Chet Field I don’t see ANY “conservative groups” (minority or otherwise) contributing to RW. Just individual conservative writers and national media outlets. If you don’t like the selection of writers maybe you need to start your own newsletter? If James T is “far removed” from a true conservative, you have a pretty narrow definition of conservative.

Deborah Tyler Haywood Chet I am not looking for an argument or to down James. I do want to share our group and our work and join forces. The point is to work and come together so I am not looking to start anything. Before I posted this I used every, EVERY available means to get some response. It is critical we get our groups into the fold. I hope you, Charlie and everyone will join in this effort. James again, is not in the inner city not around the Choice group, your ticket to election wins. However until now no one has addressed them but us. Cool idea. We need your help. No more attacks, cultural or otherwise. We need support, manpower and a platform. Bickering will serve no purpose so I will work with Right WI to find ways to help us change the tide. We can’t keep giving up blacks when we DO have much to offer. Peace

Deborah Tyler Haywood By the way….we have several outlets. The fact no one but us knows them is a problem. If we have the key to the black vote, you need that. We want you to have it. Whites have been going about it so wrong as well as blacks removed from the inner city. We want to help and we have been doing our best to be the soldiers on the frontline. Let us in. We are on your side. We want the same thing and been at this just as long. We are not a new fad.

Deborah Tyler Haywood One last thing as a black, no offense to James, we love him, but anything we do we can never be anything but him. There are more black conservs in WI than him. Who is being narrow? One black conserv show, few panelists and we wonder why we get little vote. We all get compared to James, it’s insulting at this point. This is a great chance to educate, elevate and unite as one and leave the negativity behind.
