During the Biden-Harris presidential campaign ...
... both candidates sold the idea of higher taxes on families making $400K or more a year. Of course, Progressives cheered, because they love to tax the rich, as if this is some payback for capitalist oppression.
(Insert eye rolls.)
As is typical in my Twitter Class, I snapped folks out of that ridiculous bubble by pointing to a more pressing issue: Higher taxes will actually hurt Black communities because an economic shift has taken place in recent history that makes it easier for us to acquire wealth.
More and more younger Black Americans are tapping into the online business industry, technology, and real estate. We are building new Black Wall Streets and investing back into our communities in some way.
And if Biden's administration succeeds in raising taxes on our wealth, that means less resources for Black communities, whose Investor Class is pouring more money into improving our hoods.

Conservatives in 2020 really exposed themselves and their love for Big Daddy Government when it provides "solutions" they deem admirable.
Last year, the base underwent a massive attack from left-leaning progressives. The opposing side pushed heavily the Critical Race Theory, which is connected to the current 1619 Project, started by a Black woman.
Recently, the Biden Administration launched a massive proposal for funding in public schools based on Critical Race Theory: "The Biden administration wants a grant program for history and civics education to prioritize instruction that accounts for bias, discriminatory policies in America, and the value of diverse student perspectives."

What is your story, Beloved?
If we could play every scene of your life publicly, would you feel proud or ashamed?
99.99% of you would say, "There are some things about me I don't want people to know." And it's because society has conditioned us to "crucify" people publicly who do not have a cookie-cutter story.
In today's social media world, public smears are a norm. Enter any hostile environment -- like the political space -- and suddenly you're in a den of hungry lions, waiting to devour you.
Back in 2016, after obeying the Holy Spirit's instructions to launch a virtual ministry, I asked Him, "Why are only a few people in the Scriptures mentioned as great leaders?"
His reply: "Because only a few were willing to pay the price."
If you're not familiar with Lawrence B. Jones of FOX, get to know him today.
Within the Conscious Black Conservative Movement, we know him as Sonnie's "Little Brother" who brings common sense, fireside commentary to predominantly White audiences on FOX.
And last night, he eloquently articulated the need for Conservatives to be on the battlefield of ideas to address police reform in this country.
As he mentioned in a few clips, Democrats own the narrative regarding police shooting unarmed Black men. They present ideas, which rarely help communities. For example, the push to defund the police has resulted in more violence in various cities.
Democrats are also pushing to remove guns from police officers when making traffic stops.
This is ON TOP of Progressive Democrats creating more gun control laws that strip Black communities of their right to defend themselves.
History is repeating itself, and Black communities are once again the guinea pigs for Progressive media.
Twitter Class began early this morning ...
with a teaching on government overreach, increased regulations, and the subsequent criminalization of American citizens. (Check it out here.)
Yesterday, we were made aware of another police shooting of two teenagers, one White and the other Black.
I made a tweet stating, "I cannot handle another story of a kid being killed by the police. Make. It. Stop."
And do you know how some Conservatives responded in my comments? They played the blame game: they blamed the parents for the shooting; they deflected to Black-on-Black crime; they sided with the police AGAIN.
Early this morning ...
I woke to a new message on Facebook. A young Republican -- John, a White male -- in Virginia expressed his thanks for the content Sonnie and I have pushed into the conservative space.
Recently, he attended a local GOP meeting in Virginia, and expressed the need to reach more minorities in their area.
As expected, the older Republicans did not receive his suggestions. But the younger ones did.
In fact, he wrote, "I've brought up that the GOP needs to create a better narrative and message that actually resonates with the minority communities and that bashing black lives matter while embracing blue lives matter isn't working. The GOP older Republicans weren't as receptive of that message than the younger ones. Actually the younger Republicans actually agreed wholeheartedly with what I had to say."
He also added: "Myself and the younger Republicans are in talks of actually trying to engage these communities in order to bring about real change to empower these communities."
Music to my ears!
If Conservatives would learn to pick the right battles and dominate with conservative solutions ...
... we would never lose.
This week, BLM came under fire again after the nation learned its national leader and Founder, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, purchased a million-dollar property in California.
This criticism is simply the latest in the social justice warrior controversy. As many know, Black Americans -- especially the parents whose children were murdered by the state -- have demanded BLM, Inc. give an account for the millions donated to it.
For years now ...
Black Conservatives have called out the history of Planned Parenthood, its Founder, Margaret Sanger, and their connections to the Eugenics Movement of the 20th century.
And for years, apologists within today's Planned Parenthood told communities such criticisms were unfounded. They point to Black Civil Rights Leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., and argue since he supported Sanger, then surely her organization could not be racist.
Well, it seems Planned Parenthood couldn't escape the backlash any longer; and in an attempt to suppress the ongoing negative PR, the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Alexis McGill Johnson, wrote an opinion piece called "I’m the Head of Planned Parenthood. We’re Done Making Excuses for Our Founder."
Every now and then ...
I come across tweets that inspire my discussions related to romance and relationships.
Within the Conscious Conservative Movement, we focus on politics a great deal, because Beloveds need to know how to position themselves to win on this ideological battlefield.
But our Movement isn't relegated to the political sphere.
We are also concerned with building strong social structures so there is less dependence on government to solve our communal problems.
