I would imagine it is nearly identical to the Black liberal agenda. Same goals, just different way of getting there. I suppose it would also depend on the person; some may consider me a conservative, but even I'm appalled at the likes of MikeBot (Lofton) and Constructive Feedback. OTOH, I'm not a big fan of Marxist and thos eon the extreme left. Is there a difinitive Black liberal agenda? To the best of my knowledge, there's not one Black Conservative agenda that's been perfectly outlined and ratified. If you can find them, we can compare. Just out of curiosity, where do you stand, AudioGuy? Maybe we should throw out some popular issues, and then see how a "liberal" and "conservative" view the problem and solution.

They have none. They just mimic the White's and say "yasa boss" to everything they put out. And even if they do disagree with the conservative brethren they stay silent

There primary "agenda" is the same as most conservatives...to keep themselves in a position of authority and to protect their wealth
I think the essential black conservative agenda, no matter which country we are found in, is to make sure that people understand that personal responsibility should be our number one priority as a group and as individuals. This translates into stronger families, a more powerful sense of self confidence and self-worth, introspective analysis of problems, etc. When people understand that they are chiefly responsible for their lives amazing things happen.

Respectfully, I'm not sure I can see a difference between Repbulicans and Democrats on this issue. Clearly, Republicans look to government to line their pockets in all sorts of activist ways - from Enron, to oil/energy policy, to trade protectionism and tarrifs, to Halliburton et al, to the military inustrial complex etc. Conservatives seem to like to talk about self-reliance until they find a way that they can receive a hand out.
