I hear that 98% of African Americans voted for Barack Obama this past election. I guess that makes me a part of the 2% that did not. Gee, talk about being in the minority.
The motives and attitudes of Black Republicans have been virtually unexplored in a manner that gives us character and dimension. Allow me to shed some light on the subject in true Afrocity humorous fashion.
Presently the Democrats (who really should be called Obamacrats) have attempted to marginalize Black Republicans in several ways: by dismissing us as sellouts, turncoats and Uncle and Auntie Toms, by saying we do not realize that we are Black and want to be white (this is where the “self-loathing” comes into effect), and finally by attacking any prominent Black Republican via the mainstream media.
The last point refers to figures such as Condoleezza Rice and most recently the 63rd Republican National Committee Chairman, Michael Steele. If you recall, the liberal Obamabot Kool Aid crack show Saturday Night Live lampooned Steele, on its Weekend Update segment. Played by SNL’s current token Black dude Kenan Thompson, Steele was portrayed as an RNC electrode controlled lap dog that Rush Limbaugh and the GOP could shock collar back in line if he strays from conservative talking points with his “hip-hop” agenda. For Kenan Thompson, Michael Steele was probably a godsend because now there is another Black person he can parody. While the content and message of the skit unnerved me, I have to admit that you can’t blame Thompson. A man has gotta work and the brother might actually get more airtime. It must get pretty old playing Al Sharpton or Oprah Winfrey all of the time. Thompson has to answer to the SNL producers after all, and they must think that he is far too rotund and heavy in melanin content to portray Barack Obama. Save that for the Asian/Hispanic American actor who didn’t star in Fat Albert. Hey,hey, hey.
What you do not see in the mainstream media is the many facets of Black conservatism.
Take one of my favorite conservatives AlfonZo Rachel whose show ZONATION appears on Pajamas TV. AlfonZo is African American and a pop culture conservative who delivers his message with clarity, candor and best of all humor that is provocative.
Take for example this Zonation video entitled Affirmative Action & Socializing the Big Three :
I love AlfonZo and I urge you to watch his show, it is hilarious and best of all CONSERVATIVE.
