Black Conservative Thought: The Irreparable Consequences of Expanding Government’s Power to Ban Knowledge When We Don’t Like Certain Ideas

There are so many times when I ask myself, “Is anyone listening to what I’m trying to say?”
There are so many times when I ask myself, “Is anyone listening to what I’m trying to say?”
When I told Conservatives in January 2019 to keep an eye on Kamala Harris, they didn’t listen. I said, “She will be the formidable force against Trump in 2020.”
They still didn’t listen.
I even told folks where I gathered my insight.
They still didn’t listen.
When I told Christian Conservatives, “Trump is not your King Cyrus but your King Nebuchadnezzar now,” they didn’t listen. I provided extensive teachings on Daniel 4 to prove the validity of the prophetic word.
I even taught them how we could pivot to avoid a loss that would usher in more progressive policies.
But they still didn’t listen.
When I said outreach to Black voters is crucial for a win, they didn’t listen. They ran with the Black faces who gave them talking points while swindling more Conservative dollars to fund more losing strategies.
Unfortunately, this has been the pattern, and I have to remind myself that I am solely responsible for delivering the insight and teaching that will help God’s people win, whether they listen or not.
Well, I am once again sounding the alarm regarding our incessant dependence on government to enact policies that actually infringe on people’s rights, even when those policies come from the Right.
Over the last several months, I have warned Conservatives not to use banning knowledge as a method for combating their “rebranded” version of Critical Race Theory.
In Twitter Class, I proved to Beloveds how Conservative pundits use fear to punk the base into full submission. They tell lies and push propaganda on ill-informed citizens so these people come to vote for more oppression.
While the Right relishes in telling Black voters how brainwashed they are for their voting habits, the Right fails to see how it has been lied to for DECADES when it comes to race topics.
Sonnie Johnson is the voice who highlighted the root cause for this indoctrination, pointing directly to Lost Cause History. And if you have not studied how this long-standing indoctrination made its way into the Conservative space, I highly encourage you to look into it.
One of the reasons I truly value Dad’s training during my upbringing is because he did not keep me from learning or receiving authentic American History. In addition, he gave me spiritual principles to fortify my mind. He grounded me in Truth. And he encouraged me to pursue higher education so I could advanced career-wise.
He warned me about the crazies, although he didn’t use those exact words. He told me about liberal colleges and how they attempt to manipulate young minds.
But he still encouraged me to pursue my education because he trusted God’s law, one in particular that stated, “Train a child in the way he should go … and he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
During my college years, I was introduced to an extended version of Black History. The stories fascinated me, and seeing the rich Culture displayed before my eyes inspired me to double major in Black Studies.
As a part of the curriculum, I was also introduced to Critical Race Theory. The premise was simply to explain the role racism played in American systems, especially politics.
And it was the ONLY theory available to me that proved why racism was not an inherent trait in White Americans, but rather a carefully constructed concept used for economic purposes.
Today, I call such ideas “Colored Communism,” because its aim was to use a debased mindset to dominate “limited” resources. By teaching the concepts of superior and inferior races, government, which was controlled exclusively by White Americans, could determine who could and could not gain access to wealth.
Those tenets of CRT just made sense.
Couple that with Dad’s teachings about racism as a byproduct of man’s sinful nature, everything made sense.
So, in 2020, as I watched Conservatives go up in arms about CRT being pushed on students, I asked myself, “What’s the big deal?”
Then as I listened to the pundits LIE to the base, I became enraged because what they called CRT was NOT Critical Race Theory. (And eventually, their lies were exposed by the anti-CRT evangelist, Christopher Rufo, in one of his many tweets.)
It didn’t stop there, however. When Trump tried issuing the 1776 Project, I flipped. That’s when he completely lost my support, because we do not ban one form of knowledge in exchange for more enforced propaganda.
We teach the Truth, all of it.
We teach authentic American history, all of it.
We don’t LIE to our babies and call that “protection” when we know that one day, those lies will come back to bite us.
One day, I told Twitter Class, “Your children will hate you for lying to them in the near future. They will read your tweets, see how vehemently you banned them from information, and resent you for it.”
And I will add here: As they resent you for withholding these pertinent discussions, they will turn to Leftist Progressives for answers. They will reject your Conservatism because you won’t talk to them about what’s happening in this country.
This brings me to the main lesson within this teaching.
As of today, Georgia, Texas, and Florida are among the many red states that are banning CRT in schools.
I asked Conservatives last week, “What are the consequences for teachers who choose to teach tenets of CRT anyways, now that it’s being banned?”
Nothing but crickets for the responses.
Why? Because folks NEVER consider the irreparable consequences of banning.
When government bans something, that means a new criminal is born. A new villain is created.
And anyone who “violates” the said ban, even when the ban violates the Constitution, that person’s life is damaged.
Of course, people will tell me, “Felecia, you’re making a big deal out of nothing again.” And I will say to them, “Go check my previous warnings and tell me again I am making a big deal out of nothing.”
Years ago, I said the consequences of banning knowledge will directly harm teachers, especially Black teachers if they choose to address racism in schools where White students outnumber other groups.
And my warning was 100% accurate.
I know this experience. I lived this experience. Back in 2006, when I addressed racism at Rodriguez High School, a few White students complained to the administration about it.
I didn’t teach those children about Critical Race Theory specifically. I didn’t teach them about White Guilt. I gave them Black History, yet many were triggered.
And when the students became triggered, so did their parents.
Later on, I learned the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District had IN FACT practiced racial discrimination; and suddenly, my lessons weren’t just “out there.”
Had that school district done what Texas, Florida, and Georgia are doing today, my teaching career would have ended months after I started.
Why? Because ANY STUDENT can falsely accuse a teacher of breaking policies, even when that teacher brings forth AUTHENTIC history.
Each time government creates new laws, new criminals are born.
For this reason, I contend adamantly, “We don’t ban knowledge. We compete on the battlefield of ideas.”
No matter how fancy these Republican officials paint banning CRT, it’s still banning knowledge simply because they do not like what’s presented.
These folks aren’t even attacking the real enemy — WHITE FRAGILITY — and instead attacking a THEORY that explains how racism was used in SYSTEMS.
Conservatives can’t discern these misguided lies because they won’t read the original tenets of CRT. They simply go off what their pundits tell them.
And on the Right, I am the ONLY voice telling Beloveds, “You could use CRT to pimp slap your White Progressive cousins for using the theory as a weapon against you.”
But how can you make that possible when you won’t read?
The Right has a problem with dependence on government to legislate IDEAS.
And now Republicans want to implement their own version of history, which they call “Patriot History.”
It’s nothing but a Candyland version of American History; and Democrats will POUNCE on these policies during the election seasons.
Add to this, Conservatives have erected a new barrier between themselves and Black voters.
Black Americans won’t want to entertain the Right because they see us attacking Black History, as evident by the way our pundits continue treating our nationally-recognized Black History Month.
And now they view our banning as another attempt to prevent diversity training in the SYSTEMS that pushed racial discrimination.
The optics are bad.
And no matter how you try to twist the narrative, Black voters can only see Conservatives as cowards who canNOT handle topics of race.
For this reason, “White Fragility” is validated. When the Left calls you racist, they have receipts to prove it.
Conservatives have once again given more ammo to the opposing side when all along the solution has been to COMPETE with an alternative perspective: Black Conservative Thought.
And now Democrats are mobilizing and using the ammo you’ve given them.
You must do better.
If not, your offspring will reject your version of conservatism because you refused to compete or to present Truth. And they will vote for candidates who give them the free will to learn whatever.
So, the choice is up to you, Beloved.
What are you going to do? How will you pivot?
Will you make your local GOPs do better? Will you put pressure on them to outreach?
Will you be the ones to compete on the battlefield of ideas while your Conservative cousins run from the fight?
How will you make history in this moment?
Because one day, your offspring will look at this time to see where you were and how you engaged.
Will you run? Will you teach them to ban information or to cower when race topics are presented?
What type of Conservative legacy are you leaving?
Something to ponder today.
Beloved, our fight is against the ideologies that influence destructive policies.
And the only way we will break its proverbial back is when we learn to do things a better way.
Then we will get His results.
Our efforts to bring this empowering message to Conservatives and Black voters alike continue.
And with your partnership this next round, we will write new history based on Conscious Conservatism.

The Felecia Killings Foundation and the Conscious Conservative Movement brought the power of Conscious Conservatism to Black residents during Georgia's 2022 midterms and laid the ground work for building the Conservative Alliance. Our work helped deliver a solid victory for conservatism, and we are ready to empower a new breed of CCM leaders for nationwide Black Outreach in time for the 2024 presidential election.
In January 2019, Coach Felecia Killings launched the Conscious Conservative Movement with a mission to bridge the gap between Conservatives and Black American voters.
Since its inception, our work and message have reached the heights of Washington D.C. Coach Felecia has been featured on major independent and mainstream outlets, including Red State and FOX News, generating millions of views on our national work.
Our core principles focus on building social, political, and economic empires based on Kingdom values. And we demonstrate how this power can manifest itself when we learn to do things God's way.
This is how we get His results.
In February 2022, we expanded our Movement into the offline space by engaging in effective outreach in Atlanta, GA.
Our goal was to spread the message of Conscious Conservatism, to sell conservative politics to Black voters, and to improve social, political, and economic literacy through our weekly outreach and evangelism.
Our Movement is committed to bringing an empowering, educational experience to men, women, and children in communities suffering from Progressivism’s destruction. By equipping the heart and mind of each person, we will help communities transform from the inside out.
And we will complete this mission by equipping a new breed of Conscious Conservative Leaders who are not afraid to engage in Black communities nationwide.
The Conscious Conservative Movement is comprised of men and women from across the nation who are bringing the empowering message to their communities. Our grassroots work has successfully helped thousands of citizens understand the benefits of conservative politics, which helps increase support for conservative candidates running in various elections.
Our CCM leaders will host local chapters, provide engaging insight regarding today's politics, and show Black voters why now's the time to secure political tangibles using conservative politics.
Your contributions help sponsor our annual events, our monthly leadership training, and our online and offline evangelism efforts.
Education, empowerment, and fellowship have been key factors to our success. We not only deliver insight to Black voters, but more importantly, we teach Conservatives how to break down the racial barriers and expand the tent with fellow Americans who want to remove Progressivism's stronghold.
