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.
When I was in middle school, Dad took me and the family to see Spike Lee's "Malcolm X," the film documenting Malcolm X's story and legacy.
This was the first time I had ever heard about this Black icon; and yet I remember being fascinated with his redemption story.
This Black man emerged from the hard streets of Boston and New York to become a nationally-recognized voice for Black Empowerment. He was a street hustler, drug dealer, and overall juvenile "delinquent" with the brain power to influence the world.
After serving time in prison, the Nation of Islam (NOI) introduced itself to Malcolm. Captivated by the empowering message, Malcolm converted to Islam and began renewing his mind based on their core principles.
