Is there any such animal as a black conservative? There are blacks that have run in political races calling themselves conservatives, like Herman Cain. But we all knew what he was about from the beginning. Cain wanted to do the Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton thing — run for a nomination he knew he wouldn’t get (the Republican nomination for president) — but get enough worldwide publicity to make money many other ways for a long time.
The only person of color before President Barack Obama to really run for the office of president of the United States was Lenora Fulani. She was on the ballot in all 50 states. Cain, Jackson, nor Sharpton ran for anything but publicity. They got television shows and book deals.
The blacks that are upset about gay marriage are not the political types that know enough about politics to see the issue. They are good people that want to be on the right side of the Bible but don’t know that homosexuality is not the issue, marriage rights is the issue. Republicans found a place in the black circles of faith with the abortion issue and the homosexual issue and have tried to win over black voters with these nonissues.
Remember, above all rights are human rights, and if human rights are denied, all rights are denied.
