Effective Black Outreach: The Case for Dual Domination: Flexing Political Might No Matter Which Party is in Office
Being a Visionary is challenging.
We are innately "prophetic" because we move based on what we see in the spirit or the mind; and our present actions work in lockstep with our faith.
In 2019, after launching the Conscious Conservative Movement using Twitter, I knew the vision entailed us making strides to reach more Black voters. I even knew we would bridge the racial gap between Conservatives and Black Culture.
But I didn't know the kind of impact the Movement would have nationwide. I certainly did not expect this vision to reach the heights of Washington D.C.
Whenever a Visionary takes another step of faith to see the original idea manifest, new strategies emerge to make the vision a reality. And in 2020, "Dual Domination" became one such strategy as I told Black voters, "This is how we must flex politically from now on."

Effective Black Outreach: The Fifteen 20 Rise Formula That Helps Conservatives Reach Black Voters with the Empowering Conservative Message
I don't know why this is so, but my conservative activism has led me to several Conservatives who believe the Republican Party has no obligation or responsibility to evangelize in Black communities. Several on the base have argued that Black Americans need to come to the Party and show interest in it, despite both political agencies working to appeal to other demographics.
Such nonsense is one of the reasons I backed away from helping the base win, because I realized it is not ready for whatever "Blexit" it claims to be championing.
As with anything that must be sold, effective evangelism or persuasive communication strategies are necessary to win over any voting bloc. For example,
But Republicans will not evangelize to Black Americans. Yet, they insist Black Americans are "slaves on a plantation" for voting Democrat. A legitimate criticism is, "If you're not present in Black areas, how else are Black Americans supposed to vote for you?" But I suppose such logic is too deep for the GOP nationwide.
Since bringing my activism to Twitter in 2019, I'm proud to say I've seen more Conservative Candidates apply the lessons I (and other conscious influencers) have delivered. They recognized how the GOP's ridiculous marketing tactics have not work, and many have made adjustments themselves as they seek political offices in the local areas.
It's hard to scream at the general base when things are changing; and I can only expect more to follow in their footsteps as we seek to ensure conservatism remains the dominant ideology in America.
For this reason, I'd like to share what I call "The Fifteen 20 Rise Formula for Effective Outreach." After engaging in research and studying the political landscape via social media, it's clear that with a new approach to Black outreach, the conservative base will be prepared to welcome a new breed of Conscious Black Conservatives, who have the power to reach Black voters.
