  •  black conservatives need their own talking points (2+ / 0-)

    You could argue that the black conservative's predicament is the lack of their own language to talk about what they believe in, what they think is standing in blacks' individual and collective ways, and what they think should be done about it ... so they're forced to basically adopt white conservatives' fundamentally racist and classist frames which not only turns off even sympathetic blacks, but finally warps their own perceptions.

    It doesn't help that neither black liberals nor white liberals have any use for black conservatives - politics actually seems to trump race - so barring a major reorganization of American politics, the only people who want them around are white conservatives who merely find them useful.

    Domestic politics is the continuation of civil war by other means.
