Earlier this week, some liberal minded person took the initiative to state that I, being a Conservative Christian, lack the belief in black self determination. Initially I was taken off guard by the statement, because after all, the Conservative movement upholds an intentional belief in self sufficiency for all Americans; however, I came to the reality that it is the common liberal theme to mislead and deceive low-informed blacks on the issuue of self sufficiency and full dependency.

Examining the idea of "self determination," I will discuss how both ideologies measure up to this belief when it comes to their approach to black America. I will analyze the following:

1. The historical relationship between black America and the Federal Government....teaching our children to depend on, or despise too much government

2. The comments made by progressives and conservatives in relation to self determination...what history tells us 

3.  The legislation supported by conservatives and progressives on the matter of determination and dependency...who believes what based on support

4. The slave master mentality...who shows it, and how is it shown?

5. Concluding point 

Please join me for this special session tonight at 11pm as I discuss this concept of "black self-determination," and how the self esteem of black America has been destroyed with the election of President Obama and those who feel a need to blame the problems of black America on the superficial belief in a concept known as "white privilege"
