Why the Name?

So why did I choose the name Black By Color Only? On October 16, 1995 (my 27th birthday), a historical event took place known as "The Million Man March", led by the so-called minister Louis Farrakhan. The black community, for the most part, was moved with pride at the event. I, however, was unimpressed at the event, being that I like being an individual who doesn't like to cater to the collective thought of a race of individuals. Anyway, some time afterwards, I read an editorial in the local paper praising the recent event, so I decided to respond and give my point of view of the MMM. A few days later, my article appeared in the editorial and, a few more days later, a couple of people responded. One of them lamented that I said I was black--apparently by color only. It was then that I was struck by inspiration. What if I had some kind of program or forum, or whatever, titled Black By Color Only? That would be--how should I say it--cool! It has taken a while, but the inspiration has now materialized into this blog. Hopefully, in the future, it could materialize into something bigger.

Just to let you know a little about me:

I am a firm believer in the Bible and the deity of Jesus Christ.

Although I don't consider myself Republican or Democrat, I tend to favor a conservative point of view.

I believe this country should be run according to our Constitution.

I favor the Fair Tax in which the current tax code (and the IRS) will be eliminated and replaced by a consumer based tax.

I don't vote in favor of my wallet but in favor of morals and principles.

Just because I'm black doesn't mean I hold to the point of view of mainstream black America.

I believe racism is as big a problem in the black community as it is in the white community, and maybe more so.

The above statements get me in trouble with my fellow black "bruthas" who believe I should think like them. They proceed to call me a white lover, an Uncle Tom, and a sellout. Hey, when you throw a brick into a pack of dogs, the one you hit is the one that yelps the loudest.

I hope that you will get something meaningful from this blog. If you want to get even more about what I believe in, tune in to blogtalkradio.com/blackbycoloronly to hear my online radio program. I hope you have a good time visiting and I hope to see you on the rebound.

Where I Stand

I like listening to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Neal Boortz, and all the other conservative personalities out there who want America restored to her old glory. I have to give a shout out to Pat Robertson and Joyce Meyer. I am against the homosexual lifestyle, abortion of any kind, and excessive taxation. I believe prayer and the Bible need to be allowed back in the schools and groups like the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the IRS should be done away with.

I believe the US needs to return to the standards of the Founding Fathers who built this nation on Godly principles. I love this country and will not accept its decline into secular humanism.

I believe we live in a republic not a democracy.

I believe in the power of the individual and not the tyranny of big brother government.

I think it’s a shame that we can allow the teaching of evolution in our public schools but outlaw the teachings of the Bible.

I believe we need a major tax revolt in this country (long live the Tea Parties!) as I believe our government is trying to tax us into poverty. The money needs to be put back into the hands of the people who rightfully earned it.

I believe it is hypocritical to give a voice to the homosexuals, abortionists, atheists, liberals, etc., while at the same time trying to silence the conservatives and Christians. This is a violation of Freedom of Speech. When the ungodly speak, we call it freedom. However, when the Christians speak, we call it “hate speech”. This is a travesty.

Abortion is murder; homosexuality is perversion; evolution is a lie. However, in the public schools, our children are taught the opposite. How is it a child’s parent must be notified for permission to give him/her an aspirin but they don’t have to notify said parents to give the child a condom or information on abortion?

The ungodly are trying to force the Christians into the closet and we as Christians, sadly, are complying. We need to stand up for our rights or Christianity in this country will meet the same fate it has in others that don’t acknowledge freedom of religion.
