I believe that there can be a black conservative agenda. (At least I am hopeful that there can be one.) I just have yet to see one articulated.
To be clear, you wrote about some issues that you feel are relevant to the black community (e.g. education, taxes, the family, etc.) but for the most part neglected to offer the black conservative solutions for those problems. What are the black conservative answers to those questions? For example, you talked about the NEA and performance of the public schools, but offered no solutions. What is the black conservative soltuion? NCLB? You talked about crime but only responded with "judicial and community reform". I provided an example of such, which I'm sure is inconsistent with a black conservative agenda. What, therefore, is the black conservative soltuion to crime? What are the black conservative "judicial and community" reforms that are better than liberal "judicial and community" reforms - in your view?
