The BET program, " Don't Sleep, " recently had a episode addressing whether Black conservatives are essentially " in it for the money " to use a popular phrase.
Any student of American Black culture knows we've got more than our share of dons and divas with noses turned in the air.
Every group does and perhaps our history makes it even more pronounced.
A life long traditionalist, I've observed our classism for nearly 50 years. The fact that members of the well compensated Black liberal elite question community conservative's commitment is laughable.
Few Black liberals of any means donate millions to HBCUs the way Bill Cosby or Tavis Smiley have. Fewer still will stand and talk to so-called " little people " the way global progressive icon Dick Gregory does.
Black liberals who've " made it " are easily a thousand times more snooty than White counterparts. Try holding a conversation with one if you aren't famous yourself.
Reports state you are often get ignored or, if they have security, roughly rebuffed.
I don't doubt some high profile Black conservatives see themselves as stars. That goes with being on national programs like Don't Sleep or headlining big rallies.
Black conservatism isn't just another " come up " to those laboring silently in a liberal-led Black America, confident American alternatives to the Left will triumph.
By my estimate, for every phony Black conservative there are easily hundreds if not thousands more liberals active simply to be a smug " Black Face In A High Place " too.
Please note few if any high profile Black liberals do their activism for free.
