Why "The Race Traitor?"

In case you're wondering about the name of this blog I decided to give a little explanation. There's a particular hatred for Black Conservatives on the Left. The names they use to describe us say it all: Race Traitor, Uncle Tom, Oreo, Pet Monkey, among others. The message is clear "You cannot be both a Conservative and Black." You are forced to pick between your beliefs and your race.

It's an absurd thing, especially when you consider who it comes from. The people who claim to champion tolerance and free thought are the very same ones who become so outraged whenever someone dares to think differently. It is surreal to think that the rewards for freedom and equality are a loss of individuality and a demand to participate in group think. We must become what THEY want us to be.

In return for this loyalty, this loss of individuality, the black community has suffered. For example: 65% of Black children live in homes without Fathers, nearly twice the national average. Instead of promoting things such as faith, hard work, and family values we are told that we are victims, and the key to our survival and uplifting will only come when it is given to us. Basically we are told that we are so damaged that we can no longer pull ourselves up, but rather must be pulled up. What makes this downright insane is that I believe most blacks would inherently be drawn to an ideology which promotes the values listed above. An ideology which says you can be whatever you want, you just have to work for it.

Growing up as a mixed raced child I had the benefit of being able to see things from both sides. I don't pretend that there isn't still racism out there, but neither do I pretend that it's mostly Whites who are racists. Blacks may very well be the biggest racists out there. Their racism manifests itself as a sort of obsession with race that seems to dictate how they interact with everyone and how they see the world as some sort of unfair, oppressive thing. On the opposite end most whites go out of their way to make sure they're not perceived as racists, and for many of them it has become a sort phobia. Neither mentality is healthy, and neither will ever solve the issues that surround race in America.

This blog is called "TheRaceTraitor" because I refuse to buy into the victim mentality fed to me by liberals. I believe that the Black community has been taken advantage of, and is being used as pawns by the Left. Ultimately I believe that Conservative values are good for all of America, including Blacks, and that hypocrisy of the Left ultimately comes down to intellectual slavery.

George Orwell has a quote which I love:

"Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism."


In this you could include racism, and that sums up my feelings toward my fellow Conservatives. To them, I am a fellow American. Nothing less.

  1. It is quite unfortunate that Black conservatives are not allowed comfortable space to express their views without being called such ugly names. Welcome to blogging. I know you will offer a much needed voice in the blogosphere.
