Why media ignore black conservatives ~ By Erik Rush

But what of those press outlets that are not dedicated to fundamentally transforming America into a sterile socialist megalith?

Surely, a proliferation of black conservatives in media would serve to validate the conservative message in the eyes of black Americans and advance truths long-buried by liberal propagandists. Additionally, white media consumers, regardless of political affiliation, tend to listen to blacks in the political arena with a more conscientious ear than they do whites, to whom they are more routinely exposed. Logically, it stands to reason that heightened exposure to black conservatives could only help the cause to which alternative press outlets are ostensibly committed.

Erik Rush tells you how the liberal press is basically silencing the story of conservative black Americans becoming more politically engaged over the last few years as voters, office-seekers, commentators and activists. The reasons why black conservatives have been ignored, disregarded, and even derided by the liberal press (mainstream media) are discussed in this column, along with what must be done to turn around that trend. For now, it is just the conservative alternate press, such as, or cable news outlets such as the fair and balanced Fox News, that understand the significance of black conservatism to any degree.


Not everyone overlooks great patriotic black conservatives! There is one by the name of Herman Cain that doesn't get the attention from the mainstream media. (That may not be a bad thing, considering the vitriol they gave Sarah Palin!)

But after you read Erik's column, you'll understand a lot more about why possible candidates like Herman Cain are ignored by the liberal mainstream media. But, I'm not overlooking this potential candidate!

Why media ignore black conservatives

As we have observed, conservative black Americans have become more politically engaged over the last few years, particularly over the last 18 months. This includes voters, as well as office-seekers, commentators and activists. Prominent black conservatives, such as Reps. Allen West and Tim Scott, have become stars of the conservative movement.

While these folks are typically viewed with extreme derision amongst hardcore liberals and most politically active blacks, they have not garnered the sort of attention in one key area many observers thought they might: the press. Although the establishment press (commonly referred to as the "mainstream media" or "MSM" by non-progressives) has taken a few jabs at black conservatives in the recent past, they have largely ignored their political significance.

Around 90 percent of black voters support progressive causes and Democrat politicians. Many older Americans are aware that this was not always the case. What brought about the change in black voting habits took time – and would take time to explain – but I go over this in great detail in my book, "Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal ~ America's Racial Obsession," published by WND Books.

The answer to why the nascent black conservative movement is being disregarded by the establishment press lies in the lack – or complete absence – of coverage they have given other highly newsworthy issues of late: Black conservatism threatens the pre-eminence and perceptual validity of their ideology.

If the Democratic Party loses a substantial portion of the black vote, they're done for – and they know it. There are two reasons for this: One is simply a matter of numbers; radicals have been able to gain ground only because they have been operating within the Democratic Party. An explosion in black conservatism would expose many of these radicals. Two, such a swing would embolden white conservatives and likely give rise to a similar transformation of Latino voting habits. Thus, it is of no benefit to the establishment press to spotlight black conservatives, let alone provide a forum for their message.
