What does it mean to be conservative?
In today's political climate, "conservative" has become synonymous with anti-Black messaging and Right-wing government expansion (statism), which turns people off.
But at its core, conservatism is the preservation of universal truths that keep society functioning at it best.
In 2019, after witnessing individuals use conservatism as a weapon against Black Americans, I launched the Conscious Black Conservative Movement as a way to bridge the gap between White Conservatives and Black voters.
At the heart of the Movement, the promise is this: If we learn to do things God's way, we would always get His results.
And since that time, this Kingdom message and God-focused Movement have reached millions online each month.
Conscious Black Conservatism is based on the belief that spiritual laws and principles guide our human behavior and interaction. As humans, we conserve these truths and implement these values in culture, society, and politics. While we are similar to other Conservatives in our general philosophical views, Conscious Black Conservatives demonstrate how conservatism manifests through the lived, unique experiences of Black Americans, past and present.
Conscious Black Conservatives use our words to tear down godless ideologies that rise up against our spiritual, conservative values; and then we seek to build and plant again in our communities so people thrive.
Conscious Black Conservatives empower. Even when we point out problems in our communities, we immediately present viable solutions WITH the people so we each one prosper. We do so because we understand spiritual laws, which is higher-level thinking.
Conscious Black Conservatives are cognizant of the power of the blessing. We understand our words contain life or death; therefore, we use our words to bless — and not curse — Black Americans. We don’t use our power, platforms, and voices to belittle Black people. We uplift, because we know our words shape our future and our world.
Conscious Black Conservatives understand we cannot help anyone if we are constantly bashing them. The Law of Sowing and Reaping is always in effect. Therefore, if we curse our Beloveds, we know a curse will come back on us. Therefore, we bless.
Conscious Black Conservatism invades the political space. Such Conservatives are not afraid to engage in topics Black people want to address. Conscious Black Conservatives are beholden to neither Party. A political Party is beholden to us.
Simply put: Conscious Black Conservatism is an ideology based on moral conservative principles that focus on black empowerment and progress in politics, culture, and society.
And based on this philosophy, we adhere to 10 spiritual laws:
Those of us within the Conscious Conservative Movement strive earnestly to apply these spiritual truths to our lives and the people we encounter.
And we welcome you to join us as we bring this empowerment to communities nationwide.
