Black conservatives have it rough in America. On one hand, they are easy prey for Left, who denounce then as Uncle Toms, Oreos, traitors, and other obscene names. (If the belief that the accident of one’s race or heritage demands that one subscribes to a certain political party isn’t racist, I don’t know what is.) On the other hand, the Right supports them politically but never tries to support their efforts in reforming African-American culture and generally accounts the black vote as lost.
In this article, I would just like to take a moment to recognize the efforts of Alfonzo Rachel, who is the founder and drummer of the band 20 lb Sledge and producer of political videos under the title ZoNation, to reform African-American culture. His delivery is incredibly articulate, and he displays a perspicacious knowledge of American history, the current political situation, and a great sense of humor. It’s a joy to listen to him take liberals to task, though it hurt a little to hear his frustration with white conservatives not wishing to engage the culture. Here’s the video which convinced me to make this post:
He makes several interesting points about why conservatives aren’t able to drive cultural change. I would encourage you all to follow his suggestion of liking Alfonzo Rachel’s facebook page. We need to support people like this! Also, here’s a great and much shorter video he made on Black History Month. Some of his humor using the character of Frederick Douglas is priceless!
