This is the site for the black people out there who are sick and tired of your fellow black folks telling you that you should think a certain way. Yes, this site is for all the black conservative, Christian, common sense folks who speckle the nation. You have chosen to escape the plantation and this is one of the escape routes on this modern day "Underground Railroad".
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.
