Effective Black Outreach: How Will Conservatives Compete Against Progressives as the Latter Attempts to Solidify Poor Black Women's Votes Using Guaranteed Basic Income?
At a time when Black men are voting for conservative politics for economic reasons, Progressives are appealing to poor Black women using Guaranteed Basic Income. Learn how the Conscious Conservative Movement will compete to show poor Black women a better way.
Effective Black Outreach: What's the #1 Winning Strategy That Will Appeal to Black Women's Conservatism?
This week, we will take a look at our efforts to bring the empowering conservative message to Black women this next round.
As you already know, Black Outreach to Black men proved most successful when we focused on conservatism’s ability to protect their growing economics.
Presenting a message to them based on financial success secured a conservative victory in Georgia, and the same message will secure a conservative victory in 2024 nationwide.
Now that we have solid proof validating our outreach work, it’s time to consider how conservative politics can be sold to Black women.
Effective Black Outreach: How the 1970s and 80s Messaging Regarding Black Fatherhood is Playing Out Again in the 2020s and Encouraging More Black Single Motherhood
I’d like to begin this lesson with a story about my paternal grandmother, Earnestine Killings. I never met her because she passed away before I was born, but Dad often shared wonderful stories about her.
He told me that growing up, our elders had specific rules when it came to sex and pregnancy. Simply put, if one of her sons got a girl pregnant, that son MUST marry the girl.
Perhaps you’re familiar with these types of “shot gun” weddings, too. But it’s interesting to note how social norms morphed over time as our communities became more aligned with Progressive messaging and policy.
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.

Effective Black Outreach: How Should Black Conservatives Address Issues of Importance to Black Americans?
The Moral High Ground in Conservatism
Since 2016, I have been on the front lines of the Black Conservative social media movement. Before that, I had always been a Republican voter. Conservatism is all I know; and over the years, I have watched as my value system empowered me to conquer the insurmountable.
Conservatism is built upon the idea of the individual.
We seek to preserve the individual rights above the collective; and at times, this individualism translates into individual thinking.
Among the most prominent talking points within the Black Conservative Movement is the idea that Black Conservatives are the true "free thinkers." The other 90% are locked in mental bondage simply because they vote Democrat.
In this space, this is the moral high ground. And any Black Conservative who ascribes to conservative politics is seemingly superior in intellect than other Black Americans.
Now, perhaps it's because I've spent so many years in the public space, but I have never ascribed to such beliefs. In fact, such thinking would have prevented me from helping hundreds of scholars graduate from high school. If I believed Black people were intellectually inferior to me because of our political differences, my scholars would not have loved me as they did.
So, at times, when I see the Blexit babies use their platforms to suggest certain Black people are "less than," I worry that their words will come back to haunt them. This leads me into the recent discourse that took place on Twitter.
