SORT BY Relevancy
Hello and welcome to the Forum a show about how politics results in policies that impact people. I’m Michael Fauntroy. The Forum premiers every Friday at Noon Eastern on the Tavis Smiley Network on Blog Talk Radio. You can also hear past editions of The Forum by visiting the show page. You can follow me on my website, MichaelFauntroy.com, on Twitter @MKFauntroy, or on Facebook at Michael K. Fauntroy.
I’m flying solo today to launch a periodic series of discussions on American conservatism. I call it The Conservatism Series and today I will focus on the intersection of conservatism and Black voter suppression. It’s a preview of sorts for my upcoming book on the topic. I’ll check in periodically to discuss some of the themes that emerge from my research on the topic over the last two years.
I want to start by simply offering the reasons behind the book and how I define conservatism. I hope this will be an interactive conversation, so I encourage you to reach out to me with your questions and comments. You can find me on Twitter @MKFauntroy and on Facebook at Michael K. Fauntroy. Send me a question or comment and I’ll respond in the next edition of the conservatism series.
I'm your host B.T. of the Black Thinker Radio Show. Call in and state your case!
A Liberal is what? Someone who believes in being liberated or free?
A Conservative is what? Someone who lives his or her life under a set of moral guidelines or principles?
One can see how the Black Thinker is confused by political labels.
So what is a guy who believes in the Constitution, the free enterprise system, but is a womanizer? A Conservative?
What is a woman who owns a growing business employing 50 employees that she started from scratch and donates money to local charities, but does not believe in God? A Liberal?
The Black Thinker, as well as millions of people who fly political party banners, are confused.
Most Black Thinkers believe in God which is a high Conservative and Democrat attribute and but Black Thinkers vote for people who do not put God high on the list in some cases. And so do white people! What do things political labels really represent?
Black Thinkers shout on the top of highest mountain about racism, but exhibit, on occasion, quasi-racist behavior when it benefits them. For example, when a black and a non-black interview for a job or promotion, and the non-black gets selected, black thinkers decry "racism".
Did the Black Thinker consider that, perhaps, the person hired graduated from the same college or belonged to the same fraternity or sorority?
Or the person hired or promoted was part of a networking group that helps their own? Why does it always have to be racism?
Hell, it could a relative...which is nepotism...but when things or circumstances don't favor Black Thinkers all the time...it is not always racism.
This show will explore the conundrums of political party labels as well as try to peel the layers of the onion with regard to the Black Thinker.
The first of a four part series on Black women and their roles in Black History.
Today we will discuss Black Women being stereotyped while sitting in the seat of the scornful. We will elaborate on stereotypes like Mammy, Jezebel, Sapphire, and many others. We will discuss how these same stereotypes are still alive and perpetuated by white & blacks.
