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,



dollar tree


Residents of Milwaukee’s Bronzeville neighborhood and city officials are expressing outrage that a Dollar Tree store is opening at W. North Ave. and N. King Drive, instead of the full-service grocery store that had been promised.

At a meeting of about 80 residents last week, District 6 Ald. Milele Coggs said she will work with residents and city officials to try to stop the dollar store.

“Let’s be real clear. This is what was presented to me for a year and half,” she said, holding up a rendering that read “M.L.K. Supermarket.”

Then two weeks ago the “coming soon” banner went up over a new Dollar Tree sign, she said.

“We can’t stand for a bait and switch,” Rocky Marcoux, commissioner of the Milwaukee Department of City Development, told the crowd. “We are very, very upset about what’s happened here.”

He said he’s exploring what action the city might take, but the property is zoned for retail.

“Dollar Tree is a reputable national retailer, but that’s not what we wanted at this location,” he said.

The corner, which was occupied by a Walgreen’s that has moved to a new location, was supposed to be an independently operated, locally owned grocery store, and that’s what property owner Anup “Andy” Khullar promised, he said.

The city helped Khullar put together a loan through the Milwaukee Economic Development Corp., a nonprofit that works closely with the city to put together low-interest loans.

“It’s a critical location and a significant corner,” Marcoux said.

 MLk Food Store


Again the Black Community was promised…

The problem with the Dollar Tree moving in on the corner of MLK and North Avenue is that we were told that the business would most likely be a Black owned grocery store. It would help the community, the Bronzeville community, “sankofa” (reach back) and connect to its roots of its former self and continue the trend of growing a Black  Economy in the area. We could promote Black business and empower the Black community that has been dying in this economy. Our mayor is stuck on choo choo trains, forestry, cleaning up, and etc… and refuses to do much to help Blacks find employment or $$ opportunity. Alderwoman Coggs has been a one woman force going it alone and here we see her going it alone in this fight too. WHERE IS OUR MAYOR????

milk mayor

We do not want a Dollar Tree on the corner of MLK & North Avenue! Bronzeville was specifically designed to energize and stimulate the Black economy in the inner city. Dear mayor you have to continue to nurture that. You cannot turn your back on that or us. We want what we were promised and we want Mayor Barrett to get involved and make this right. Dollar Tree is a very community destructive business. It is not Bronzeville worthy. It wants to bring tobacco and harmful products to the community, as well as crime and violence. It is also not Black owned. Thankfully Alderwoman Coggs shut down liquor licensing which is why the deal with Mr. Khullar took a turn for the worse to begin with. He found out he could not turn the corner of MLK & North into another hustle. This is why Khullar took his low-interest government loan and gave it to Dollar Tree . Dollar Tree  was more than happy to take the money and bring in their cheap products and canned food. We want fresh fruit, meats and quality goods just like everyone else!! We won’t settle for crap and if Mayor Barrett and Dollar Tree  think the community is going to stand for this we are planning to Nate Turner this one on ya.

So be warned we are taking the fight to you and we are about done with talk. Maybe you want to live by violence and all the things Dollar Tree  brings with it. Maybe it is time you experience what we have to live with! I know one thing; this Dollar Tree may open because it swooped in too fast for anyone to do anything legally to stop it. But if this mayor does not help Alderwoman Coggs to close it and restore the promises made to our community, he will regret the day. Is this city already not stressful enough for you? Or do you need more things on the city agenda? MPD? FPC? Hello? As for Dollar Tree , we all know what it is and what it stands for. Sure desperate folks will patronize it, rob it, and rob those who work in it and those shopping in it. However I urge everyone to take a stand and show you have an ounce of respect. Take your money, quest, whatever the hell and go down the street to Growing Power!! Black Owned!!!

Stay out that damn store Kings and Queens!!!!

And by the way since our county supervisors are part of the economic process it sure would be great if they stepped in and offered assistance, and where is Willie Hines in all of this? Seems to me that Alderwoman Coggs should not be fighting this battle all by herself when we have all these Black elected willing and able. You all made promises right? State elected you all are almost out of session so you have time to come help too!!

Funny when Chris Larson wants something from Negros he is here fast and in a hurry but when we need something he is m.i.a. Well Senator, where ya at? So Black elected time to get behind the esteemed Alderwoman and back her up!!! #BLACKAGENDA!!

Here is the Online form the petition. Please sign it and get involved!!

BETRAYED: Mahlon Mitchell Supports Scott Walker on Residency Requirement

BETRAYED: Mahlon Mitchell Supports Scott Walker on Residency Requirement


“Mahlon Mitchell, the president of the Professional Fire Fighters Association of Wisconsin who ran unsuccessfully against Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch in last June’s recall, says he’s backing Gov. Scott Walker in his effort to end residency rules statewide.”

As the old cliché goes “politics makes for interesting bed fellows.” So is the case of Scott Walker and once rival challenger Lt. Governor Mahlon Mitchell. Mitchell has left the reservation of the Democratic stable to support the Republicans and Governor Walker in lifting the residency requirements statewide.
(Residency Requirement-city employees must live where they work.)

I am not for lifting the residency requirement. We are barely maintaining now in the inner city. We need the economic stimulus that is generated from our city employed neighbors to sustain the community until we get this mayor and this governor to create a sustainable economic base.
Lifting the residency would cripple our already strained inner city economics especially. The mayor and his minions are stuck on a damn trolley and not so keen on the inner city. Yes it is purely about preserving our community for me regarding the residency requirement. Mr. Mitchell ran to every Black radio show, every Black town hall, meeting and etc… during the recall elections selling a pack of lies about the importance of Black economic growth and Black job creation as priority #1 that he would initiate personally. How would you have done that when you are now advocating for your EMPLOYEED FIREFIGHERTER BRETHEREN who want to move? They knew the requirement when they applied for the job. And one other tidbit they have many don’t have in the inner city, A WELL PAYING JOB! So where are your priorities Mr. Mitchell? Did you lie to us all that time? You cannot serve two masters, sound familiar?
As an aside I do know there are some good white folks who want to stay. I am not directing this at them.
Sure some white folks will sneak in for the occasional Jake’s Corn beef fix or a dash to Speed Queen but that is about it. Those who are “forced to work/live here” actually have to mingle with us and help us fix Milwaukee. Damn shame! They also realize Milwaukee is not as bad as some would have us to believe. It sure ain’t Chicago!! Those so quick to leave, well I am sure they have their reasons but you took the job knowing the requirement in the first place. And hey Milwaukee is a great place on a great lake right!!??
Secondly, pure and simple people tend not to take an interest in things they do not see or have to deal with. Out of sight out of mind! We will no longer be an issue they HAVE to care about.
If the residency requirement is lifted we all know what it means, many whites will get the hell out of dodge and the only thing they will leave behind are scummy landlords who collect on the first of the month and do little else.
It is no surprise to me that the onetime side kick of Tom Barrett revealed his true color now and sides with the Republicans on something so vital to the Black community. This is not Mahlon Mitchell’s first time being exposed as a fraud. Another such time, Media Trackers showed he had never even voted before 2010 despite his big sermons to Blacks that WE needed to be responsible. Come again? He had not been civically responsible himself. How the Democrats even came to choosing him I will never understand and why he continues to come up as a relevant political figure is even more mystifying. About a month ago he mentioned motherhood as not a real job. Now this? What next for Mr. Mitchell?

At least we now know it was politricks as usual. However many did give him their precious vote. If he has his way, working with his new pal Scott Walker he will help shut us down. I hope he knows he is not welcome around these parts again. We need to vet our candidates better before we give them our blessing. There are many good leaders out there we must do better recruiting, training, and mentoring.
Peace Family,


Obama Embraces Keeping Blacks Stuck On The Democrat Plantation

Obama Embraces Keeping Blacks Stuck On The Democrat Plantation

Hate, fear and smear!! “Shame on you Barack Obama!!” – Feb 23, 2008

Kevin Fobbs

Freedoms Journal

This is the legacy of the Democrat party and one which President Obama embraces and actually appears to relish. He is quite familiar with the hate, fear and smear art form practiced by his fellow democratic leaders. He uses it with adept frequency. The president flies into crucial swing states like Ohio, Florida, and Virginia with his practiced hanging drawl. He then enchants the black locals with notions of sugar plum government programs that will make their life better, if they give him the same chance they did in 2008.

This is done with no reflection upon their own increasing misery index which just happens to coincide with Obama’s increased abandonment of any job, education, or community safety-net promises made. Instead, it is only through continued black misery indexing upward can Obama and democrats continue their titanium plantation grip upon over 90 percent of America’s black electorate.

Where’s the beef? Where are the jobs?

The goal of democrat plantation politics has been to find a convenient and perpetual target that can be feared, hated, smeared and consequently demonized. Republicans are that target group, which unions, democrat community organizers like Obama, and democrat political machine leaders have made their primary election year goal.

Of course with the compliance of the NAACP, as their contracted plantation house servant, the nefarious and typically highly emotionally charged negative rhetoric rings off of church and community center walls every election season. But what are universally missing are the facts of Republican misdeeds. Emotional sing song rhyming rhetoric is the bait democrat plantation leaders ply to submerge common sense or biblical principles and values learned in the church.

President Obama not only knows this but he is absolutely banking on black mothers and fathers, grandparents and families to not look under the sheets and discover they have been hoodwinked and short-sheeted by Obama and the democrat plantation care takers. To borrow from Obama’s own 2008 words which blacks on the democrat political plantation would do well to remember, “Instead, they’re betting on amnesia. That’s what they’re counting on. They’re counting on that you all forgot. They think that they can run the okey-doke on you. Bamboozle you.”

This is what Obama said to blacks in 2008 about Republican, but look at the facts, and see how the bamboozle practices applies to the plantation democrat caretakers.

First, joblessness in the black community has skyrocketed from 12.1 percent during the last month of the Bush presidency, to as high as 16.3 percent according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In July it was reported that black families were hit hardest by unemployment. The rate increased from 13.6% in May to 14.4% in June. In fact, mainstream and black media artfully avoided holding Obama’s hope and change feet to the fire for the abysmal unemployment rate increase of 39.3%, up from 36.5% in June, among black youth 16-to 19.

Instead, Obama and the plantation overseeing democrats came into Ohio and other crucial battleground states diverting attention away from murder rates in Chicago, escalating joblessness in Cleveland and Akron, Ohio and hopelessness in Detroit, and the increasing black poverty 20 percent rate in Virginia from 2010.

Black Americans have to truly take a serious look at themselves, and come to the realization that this nonsensical embrace of plantation charlatan practices by Obama and the democrats is a death sentence for their children’s future.

Think about this, as blacks, you have been told to discard their own misery index which continues to shackle the hopes and dreams of your family. Instead you are spun a myth with no facts. If one were to ask a black democrat plantation resident, what is wrong with a Romney or President Bush, or even a President Reagan or President Nixon, they cannot give one specific fact-based reason. The only practiced response uttered is “They… said he or they hate blacks!”

Did Republican President Lincoln hate blacks when he issued the Emancipation Proclamation to free black slaves? Did Republican President Eisenhower hate blacks when he sent federal troops into Little Rock, Arkansas to protect the lives of young black school children or support civil rights bills? Did Republican President Nixon hate blacks when he supported and promoted funding for historically African American colleges, minority-owned businesses, and supporting ill-advised affirmative action programs?

So where is this disconnect in the black community coming from? Why the hate, fear and smear campaigns against republican presidents and candidates?

Democrats truly believe that black people should be handled as if they are less capable of getting voting identification than whites. The democrats believe that blacks would rather listen to emotional fictional tripe from Obama’s cleverly crafted Chicago campaign message makers. Democrats want blacks to ignore their personal pain and anguish that the facts bear out. Democrats want blacks to subdue their misery index; while the outcome of Obama’s failing policies have cost them their homes, their jobs and their children’s future.

Getting free of the chains of the Democrat’s plantation politics is crucial. Instead blacks must reject the withering racial divisiveness of Biden and Obama, and seek solace in Rev. Martin Luther King Jr’s vision to not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. They must head towards and not away from King’s devotion to a new national colorblind heritage.

So before Blacks walk into that voting booth or fill out that absentee ballot, they have to have to ask themselves one crucial question. Are you willing to trade continued enslavement of democrat plantation politics for a chance to own your own destiny as an American in a colorblind nation?

On November 6th, what destiny are blacks willing to choose? Will the choice be one of freedom, or one where their freedom and their destiny are planned, government funded, and government determined for them?

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. stressed, “Man is man because he is free to operate within a framework of his destiny. He is free to deliberate, to make decisions, and to choose between alternatives.” Blacks should not let the democrats racial divisive plantation politics determine their destiny. Reject hate, fear and smear. “Shame on you Barack Obama!!”

The decision is yours as to which dream and future you are willing to risk!

Wealth Disparity Between Whites & Blacks Largest in History

Credit: Crew of 42

PEW releases devastating report on black wealth as Median net worth of a white family now stands at 20 times that of a black family and 18 times that of a Hispanic family. The collapse of housing prices has killed the net worth of black and Hispanic Americans and has caused the largest wealth gap between blacks and whites in the U.S.  Thoughthe economy was difficult on all Americans minorities tended to have their wealth tied to home ownership.  According to PEW’s report released today,  the median net worth of Hispanic households dropped by 66% and that of black households fell by 53% between 2005 and 2009.

PEW: “White and black homeowners also saw the median value of their home equity decline during this period, but not by as much as Hispanics. Among white homeowners, the decline was from $115,364 in 2005 to $95,000 in 2009. Among black homeowners, it was from $76,910 in 2005 to $59,000 in 2009. There was little or no change during this period in the homeownership rate for whites and blacks; it fell from 47% to 46% among blacks and was unchanged at 74% among whites

The median wealth of white U.S. households in 2009 was $113,149, compared to $6,325 for Hispanics and $5,677 for blacks, according to the Pew Research Center. The white-black wealth gap also is the widest since census began collecting data on blacks and whites and wealth in 1984.  Back then, the ration was roughly 12 to 1.

Turning Earth Day Black!


Turing Earth Day Black!

Environmental Injustices Affecting The Black Community and Earth Day

You think of Earth Day and you think of white folks planting trees and other such fluff. What you need to know is that African Americans, especially those of us in the highly populated areas of Mother Earth are the ones who need to be vigilant about Earth Day, every day!

What Is Earth Day?

Short version…April 22, 1970, Gaylord Nelson-Governor of Wisconsin declared Earth Day, a way to call the nation’s attention to the issues of Earth and our need to be better caretakers of it.

This year’s theme is “A Billion Acts of Green.”


“Black Americans are disproportionately exposed to environmental injustices and life-threatening pollutions and toxic hazards. These dangerous problems are local, statewide, regional, national and international. In Harlem, South Central Los Angeles, Southside Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis, New Orleans, and in just about every other place in America where we reside, we find ourselves disproportionately with high rates of asthma and other respiratory diseases, multiple forms of cancer, and other sicknesses that are directly related to harmful exposure to environmental hazards in the air that we breathe, as well as in the water and food that we consume.”

 Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr.

There are many reports that link the food we eat to the ever changing hormonal imbalance our young girls especially, are facing. PMS (Premenstrual Symptoms) or worse PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder), cause ongoing depression, anger and rage, difficulty concentrating, overeating, and fatigue to name a few. You may also notice that our young girls are bigger and “curvier” than ever before. How many times have you walked passed a young woman and noticed that she is built like a full grown woman? This has also been linked to the hormones found in our food and water supplies that can cause lifelong imbalances in all of us.

Think of all the toxins farm animals are injected with and that our fresh produce is really jacked up with hormones to make it bigger, grow faster, and be more appealing to the eye. We are poisoning ourselves while we think we are eating healthy. In fact some of our produce and bottled water is as cancer causing as a lit cigarette! We read about lead poisoning and our water supply and the connections to cancer every day!

We can’t even swim in Lake Michigan but yet we are exposed to its effects every day. As soon as it gets warm where do we all head? You really want to know what MMSD has swimming around in those “overflows” and sewage dumping that we keep side stepping?

What are we as a community doing to ward off some of the toxins we are exposed to especially in big metropolises like Milwaukee? Earth Day is OUR chance to remind the entire community about the need to be good stewards of our planet. It is not a white issue at all. It is definitely a black issue as well. It’s an “everybody” issue! We all need to work together to begin making our urban areas safer.

Another case-in-point for you:

“Did you know that many of the growing lists of so-called “learning disabilities” that affect too many of the children in the Black American community maybe environmentally related to exposures from lead poisoning and other toxic substances laced in many of our neighborhoods?”

 Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr.

This is indeed scary! Is it any wonder why our kids are falling so far behind? If they live and breathe toxins every day and can’t focus, how can we expect anyone to teach them anything?

So How Do We Make Earth Day Black?

Taking Earth Day and making it Black must remain a priority issue for us. It does not have to be trivial, stupid, or a labor of wasted time. In fact families can use the time to do something useful and unifying like planting that tree or starting a garden, or cleaning up. When is the last time you saw a young person walking around your neighborhood with trash bags and gloves and repairing the damage some of their friends cause? How many people do we see littering all over the place but we keep on walking and think what a horrible person?

Do you talk to your kids or young people, or even talk to some of us “adults” about how we livin’? Does the inner city have to look like one big garbage can filled with trash and blight everywhere? Can we unite to call our mayor and aldermen to find grant money to spruce up that abandoned building we all know is sitting there, over a decade, with no promise of anything to come? Can we petition for a park or a place for us to begin gardening or co-ops? We have grants for everything else under the sun! We can use this day to teach our youth that they are not just responsible for themselves, but teach them that they are global citizens. What happens in Japan happens in our backyards too! This is a good time to build community and remind ourselves of our pledge to Kwanzaa the seven guiding principles that should be worked on every day of our lives.

If you are looking for event s in your area, please visit “”

And let us not forget to send a shout out to Growing Power a nonprofit entity with an emphasis on this African American community which helps people grow, process, market and distribute food in a sustainable manner. They did just receive a major grant to help move them and us forward. We need to see more of this kind of “out of the box” thinking in this city!!

Please support them in this major undertaking!

I leave you with some statistics to help us all understand the damage of Asthma because we all know someone with it. It is one of the largest infiltrators of the Milwaukee African American yet we have some power to change its destructive course if we start to focus on Earth Day and its immediate impacts on our community in particular. Over 3 million African Americans have Asthma and we are 3 times more likely to die from it. Asthma thrives in large part because of our quality of life, or lack thereof.

Peace Family,


Asthma and African Americans

• In 2009, about 2,380,000 African Americans reported that they currently have asthma.

• African American women were 30% more likely to have asthma than non-Hispanic White women, from 2001-2003.

• In 2006, African Americans were three times more likely to die from asthma related causes than the White population.

• From 2003-2005, African American children had a death rate 7 times that of non-Hispanic White children.

• African Americans had asthma-related emergency room visits 4.5 times more often than Whites in 2004.

• Black children have a 260% higher emergency department visit rate, a 250% higher hospitalization rate, and a 500% higher death rate from asthma, as compared with White children.

• Children in poor families are more likely to ever have been diagnosed with asthma.


African Americans & Asthma

African Americans have the highest asthma prevalence of any racial/ethnic group. The current asthma prevalence rate among Blacks was 38 percent higher than that for Whites. African Americans account for 26 percent of the 4,200 deaths attributed to asthma in 2001. African Americans were three times more likely to die from asthma than Whites.


A Black American Earth Day

By Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr., NNPA Columnist


Top 10 Environmental Issues Affecting Urban America

By Talia Whyte


Earth Day turns 40 this year, but many African-Americans have never seen environmentalism as a priority until recently. With Van Jones and Majora Carter becoming household names, green is now the new black. Here is a list of 10 environmental justice issues affecting the black community that should be given full attention by all Americans.

1. Air pollution

Air pollution is a serious problem in communities of color, as poor air quality can contribute to a host of health problems.

2. Industrial Sites and Illegal Waste Dumping

Most communities of color live near power plants, oil refineries or waste management facilities. Industrial waste that is not disposed of appropriately (or legally) can get into the water system and land used for housing and agriculture.. Improper waste dumping creates a host of health problems, ranging from asthma to lung cancer.

3. Mercury Exposure

Fish is an important source of animal proteins and other nutrients, but it can also contain a high percentage of mercury emissions generally from incinerators, coal-burning power plants and other industrial sites, which can have a devastating effect on people of color.

4. Water Safety

Water is considered a fundamental human right, but many communities of color lack safe drinking water, swim near waste-contaminated beaches and live near polluted flood waters.

5. Transit Justice

Public transit is used at a higher rate by more people of color and low income communities than whites.

6. Food deserts

Communities of color are more likely to live in “food deserts” — areas where communities lack access to supermarkets and other sources of affordable, nutritious foods necessary for maintaining a healthy diet. Food deserts play a major role in poor health and environmental degradation.

7. Urban Green Space

As more skyscrapers and industries find homes in urban areas, less green space becomes available, especially for communities of color.

8. Lead poisoning

Lead poisoning is possible the most damaging environmental injustice.

9. Climate Change and Basic Living

The growing climate change problem means that people of color and low income communities will soon have to pay more for basic necessities.

10. Heat in the City

Since most people of color live in inner cities, they are twice as likely to die in a heat wave, and suffer from more heat-related stress and illnesses.
