BLack Conservative Independent: The White Sheep of the Black Community

Kuuleme T. Stephens .

I am writing this little note in explanation of my views as an Black Conservative Independent. I get a lot of grief over my views on politics, welfare, and in life in general. I’m especially writing this for my Liberal Democrat friends and family. With any luck, reading this will help you to understand me a little more. Please note that I am not a professional writer!!!

I have only been called a “Nigger” twice in my lifetime. Once was as a child on the playground at school. I don’t really count that one because the 7-year-old that called me that didn’t understand the meaning of the word at the time. The second time, I was in my mid twenties and was in a bar brawl with a Caucasian female who thought she was tough and was trying to anger me more because she was loosing. That did the trick and it was quite a show considering I let my anger get the best of me and started acting like one!

People usually find this to be odd, but I’ve experienced more racism and hatred from my own Black Community then I ever have with any other community. I have been called an Uncle Tom, a Race Trader, a Sell Out, a Fake, a Wanna-Be-White-Bitch, an Aunt Jemima, a House Nigger, and so much more. I have been told that I am confused, that I’m a racist toward my own kind, that I am brainwashed, that I’m stupid, that I talk white, and that I need to “embrace my blackness”. Considering that my skin is a beautiful mocha brown, I do believe my blackness has embraced me!

To tell you the truth, I have a hard time understanding why I would be called all of these thing, but this is some of the reasons (excuses) that I have come up with.

-I speak proper English and don’t speak Ebonics, so I’m not Black enough.

-I went to college and didn’t drop out of school so I’m not Black enough.

-I’m not a famous sports player or rapper and didn’t give up on life when I didn’t become one, so I’m not Black enough.

-I work a job and don’t live off of welfare so I’m not Black enough.

-I don’t do any drugs, so I’m not Black enough.

-I don’t deal drugs and I’m not in a gang, so I’m not Black enough.

-I don’t have 2 or more “babies daddies”, so I’m not Black enough.

-I don’t keep having children so I can stay on welfare, so I am not Black enough.

-I don’t expect someone else to pay my way, so I’m not Black enough.

-I use common sense in everything I do, so I am not Black enough.

-I aspire to be something more that average and work hard to accomplish my goals, so I’m not Black enough.

-I don’t believe everything I am told and do research to establish my opinions, so I am not Black enough.

-I have a 4 bedroom 3 bath house in a nice neighborhood, so I’m not Black enough.

-I’m married to a Caucasian man and have a mixed race child, so I am not Black enough.

-I don’t blame every failure that I have in life on racism and learn from my mistakes, so I am not Black enough.

-I don’t pick my friends based on their race I pick them because we get along and I like them, so I’m not Black enough.

-I didn’t and will never vote for Obama

And the biggest one of them all…………..

-I pulled my head out of my behind, left the Democrat Party, and became an Independent.

Like most Black Americans, I was born into the Democrat Party. I say “born into” because you are literally a Democrat from birth. When you register, you register Democrat, and when you vote you always vote Democrat no matter what. You’re not expected to have an opinion or have a stance on any issues, just vote democrat and you’ll be fine. My Grandmother, who is still a Democrat Party ground pounder, took me to register as soon as I turned 18. I had the gall to ask, “What are these other parties about?”. She glared and told me”don’t worry about them, they are not for you and the Blacks”. So, I did what I was told.

When I went off to college, I decided that I would finish out my Freshman year and then enter the United States Navy. I have to admit, my eyes started opening once I got away from my family and my hometown of Tucson, Arizona. I started paying attention to politics and what was going on in the world because all of this stuff was now affecting me as an individual. The party that I had been born into started sounding more and more foreign and oppressive to me.

When I say foreign and oppressive, I mean I could no longer follow the Democrat Party blindly because I had too many questions about their way of doing things and their beliefs. I didn’t agree on their stance on stem cell research, I didn’t agree with the stance on abortion, and I definitely didn’t agree with the stance on the military and the war. I am a gun owner and fight to preserve the rights to own them. I also found myself disagreeing with the stance that we tax payers should be funding more welfare programs.

I didn’t want to be a part of keeping people dependent on the government, and that is what the Democrat Party does. I definitely don’t believe that you have to be a Democrat because you are Black. The reason I say that the Democrat Party is oppressive is because it teaches persons (especially minorities) that they can’t do any better for themselves and that relying on the government and its social programs is a way of life. How is anyone suppose to achieve anything in life if they’re too busy expecting the government and their socialist programs to take care of them?

Just so I am clear, I do know that people are going to need help from time to time. That was the original idea of the social programs, but now, it’s not a time to time thing. People are just plain lazy and at times, really don’t know any better because of the way they were raised. It’s called the dumbing down of society. I can’t stand knowing that my hard-earned tax dollars are paying for people who don’t want to work, that are bouncing from rehab to rehab, that are receiving more benefits than me (as a working person and tax payer) and have a drug habit. I even know people who have faked disabilities in order to not have to work. Why punish those who are working and paying taxes so that the ones who want to live off of others can live an easier lifestyle? I also believe we should have an express lane for death row. Democrats believe in killing of innocent babies, yet will protest to save the life of a death row inmate. I think that is kind of backwards, don’t you? I see no point in paying for someone ( a criminal of the worst kind) to live (in some cases better than others who have committed no crimes) when they’ve been sentenced to death.

My common sense views didn’t click with the Democrat Theology anymore, I became the White Sheep!

So here I am today taking flack for the way I think, talk, act, vote, and for my lifestyle, but to tell you the truth; they can keep calling me names and criticizing me! I love who I am and those who want to call me names and criticize me are only making me stronger and work harder! If you don’t like my views on Obama, then tell me one thing he’s done for you or the American people besides gracing us with his presence. If you don’t like my views on the Democrat Party (Originally the party of the Ku Klux Klan), then give me some intelligent reasons why you think it’s better than every other party, other than getting free stuff (nothing in this world is free, someone somewhere down the line is paying), calling me names, or saying I’m confused.

I love being an independent thinker. I love not being dependent on anyone or anything! I love not having to sit and wait on food stamps to come in once a month. I love being able to speak proper English because then people don’t think I’m ignorant and uneducated! I love that I stayed in school because it gave me the tools that I needed to get by in this life! I love being drug free because it helps me to see things clearly and able to function without hindrance. I love not being a drug dealer or gang banger, the only place that leads a person is to prison or the grave. A little secret for the thuggin’ gang bangers and drug dealers that think they’re so cool…. (Wearing your pants down to your knees is not sexy! It was started as a signal in the prison system by homosexuals in order to signal that they were available! Now don’t you feel stupid! Lol!!! If your going to wear it, promote it, and fly that flag, at the very least Know Your History!)

And thus, I become a Proud White Sheep of the Black Community! I think I will start a Club! LOL!!!

  1. I’m glad that you were able to escape from your traditionalist background! Independent thought is one of the greatest things, especially if you know what you are talking about… and you seem to know a lot. Looking forward to seeing a good blog…

    I myself write of current events and controversial issues, with economic principles and common sense in mind… I am a Conservative Independent.

  2. The way I see it, the “95%” of blacks clinging to the government and the Democrat Party are like past slaves clinging to their master. We blacks who are wise enough, escape the plantation. It’s funny, the 95% call blacks like me and you “Uncle Toms” when really we are “slaves no more”!

    It truly pains me to see blacks and others give their souls away for crumbs off the table of this reincarnation of the slave master (Big Government).

    Like a wise man once said, “I pity the fool”! Well it was Mr. T, but the quote just seem to fit.

    • Thank you for reading my blog! It saddens me too that our Black Community seems to have no clue that they are still “slaves” in a matter of speaking. It also saddens me that they claim to fight discrimination and in the same sentence denounce those who choose to leave the “Plantation” of the Democrat party. They are choosing to do the same thing that they claim to hate so much! Please check out ! It is a blog site of several Black Conservative Women including myself, who speak our minds!!!Again, thank you for reading!!!!

  3. I thank you for your strength, and trust me it is strength! I come from a Democrat union family and was signed up at 18 to vote for the “Party of women” so when I finally woke up and realized that Democrats are totalitarians who want to control your life from morning to night so that they can lord power over you, I never looked back 🙂

      • I think you are absolutely correct on most of your perspectives. It is refreshing to hear that conservative ideas and views are starting to have a foothold into minority groups that traditionally vote for liberal ideas. Keep it up…I would ask you to marry me if it were not so creepy and crazy for anonymous writer to propose to someone they do not even know via the internet….lol
        Keep up the good fight.

      • Lol! Thank you! 🙂

  5. You are ruled by vermin who call themselves lawyers and bankers. They are anarchists and frauds. They have abolished public authority of criminal arraignment and asserted a judicial authority of criminal arraignment. Thereby they control legal precedent in case law.
    There is no law they will not wipe their asses with.
    They have siezed the U.S. treasury and are issuing fiat currency called federal reserve notes from their private bank.
    They charter banks to practice the fraud of fractional reserve lending.
    They pay for their private political parties private primary elections with public money.
    Who are “they”? They are the killers and thieves calling themselves the lawyers and bankers.
    Are you working for them? Do you have a mortgage?
    Do you “work” as police? As a prison guard? In a “bank”?
    Are you a killer that invades other peoples countries and kills their people without provocation or cause? I believe so.
    Will “Jesus” forgive you for the blood of innocent people on your hands? I don’t. I am a real person and not a figment of your imagination. Real devotion and real faith are forms of resposibility to real people. Fake devotion and fake faith
    are the fundamental elements of religion which are used to confuse the religious victim into surrendering personal and social responsibility to “leaders” and “leadership”.
    Politics is a lie used to enslave us.

  6. Miss Kitty Litter

    You could be my daughter or granddaughters you sound so much like them! I am white and have been married to a black man for 45 years! You have expressed what we feel and have been through also. Keep to the high ground always.

  7. Excellent blog! You spoke on exactly what I have been noticing. I live in leftist California, so I see these brainwashed sheep all the time. I love driving around with my Ron Paul, and “Abolish the federal reserve” bumper sticker.

  8. God bless you, sweet girl! a friend posted a link to your blog on fb and i’m so glad to have found it. i can’t imagine the opposition you encounter – i know the persecution i’ve received from liberal friends who are the same color as me. i hate that it even matters to most what color we are. i have always taught my girls that to judge someone by the color of their skin is as silly as judging someone by the color of their hair or eyes. (we don’t hate daddy cause his eyes are green and ours are brown. lol) so proud of your boldness and look forward to following you in the future.

  9. A lot of food for thought. I see that you are from Tucson. Do you still reside in Tucson?

    Excellent Blog. I hope that others of all races would read such a blog and loose the “victim mentality”

  10. You go girl! Just discovered your blog! Thanks for posting y our thoughts! I couldn’t agree with you more. I’m Puerto Rican and from the northeast. So I know what you mean about everyone in your family and circle of friends voting for democrats, even when their beliefs do not coincide. Very disturbing to me. Keep the faith Kuuleme. We need more people like you who read, educate themselves, and speak the truth. God bless!

  11. I have also been derided for not fitting the black stereotype. Unfortunately I’m not as strong as you are. I fell through emotional cracks that hampered my life.

    The cycle is vicious. My experience is that being black is not hard because whites are “oppressing” us and limiting our potential, it’s other blacks that expect you to be a certain way and share emotional baggage and have group mentality. If you deviate from this you’re instantly and mercilessly labeled. This tactic is used to the liberal advantage in the “mob” tactics of ridiculing black conservatives.

    • So what you are stupidly saying is that these “Ahem, Sambocoons”, don’t ridicule or name-call those AA Dems or Liberals?

      • Your ignorant response was the only thing that stupidly said here. No one said that no one on the right has never called anyone on the Left names…..

      • The right isn’t innocent either but that’s not what this blog is about I’m telling about my TRUE experience

        That was rude. Go screw yourself.

  12. Follow your lead FOR WHAT? You’re just another negro with that Bed Wench mentality trying to SLAVE CATCH, for the plantation down the road. I think it’s hilarious how you Sambocoons try to hang all government programs on the AA community, when The AA community has never been the biggest recipients of any government and I will include drugs in this also since we have never been the biggest users. I have not met one of you ConservoNegros yet that has a modicum of intelligence. All of your Strawman/Woman arguments of your White Handlers are long since dead!!!

    • Sounds like you’re a little bit intimidated by Strong Black Women…. Sad and Pathetic!

      • Yea, you’re strong alright! That remains to be seen. The way I see it, you’re intimidated by your hue and wish you could change it and in the grand scheme of things, Mutts like you are nothing new, We’ve had subjugated bed wenches like you among us for Eons! You like most ignorant American negros equate white with success but I understand that a Bad Upbringing and no understanding of CULTURE, contributes to your lack of knowledge of self.

      • Oh… you must be one of those Pan African People…. Either that or one of the followers of the Nation of Idiots…..

      • Just ignore him. If he was really happy he wouldn’t be doing this.

  13. Hahaha!! Hey Raymond, It’s because I am happy that oppose culturally ignorant ne’er do wells like the owner of this blog.and you, Those that seek to demonize a whole race of people because of their incessant and sedated ignorance. Oh yea, I had the best role models and strong women in my life, via family members, teachers and professors and none of them had to bed down a white man to make themselves feel like they were important. You ConservoNegros thrust yourself into a cauldron of ignorance daily and is shown by those you so admire and worship that you’re nothing to to them. That Mutt Mentality you possess comes from the Plantation!!!!

  14. There is a cure for you self-hatred,, it’s called EDUCATION. Something your white jesus can’t afford you!!!

    • Who said anything about self hatred? I know I sure don’t hate my own race. I am very proud of where I come from. Only ignorant Negroes like you use that as an excuse when they have nothing but BS to spew…. Grow up and move on already…..

    • Oh and by the way, I am educated and I don’t have a White Jesus. Stop acting like an Ignorant Porch Monkey! Yep! I sure did say it! I call it like I see it and that is exactly how you are acting!

    • Oh and by the way you ignorant ass, it’s “YOU’RE” not “your”! Be sure you are educated yourself before you try messing with me!

  15. You are one AWESOME and INSPIRING young lady! I love the courage you display through this blog.

  16. I just want to say how amazing you are! Your article was really awesome! i’m not African-American but I’m a Lebanese Catholic. I’ve never really experienced any form of direct racism but I know there are lots of people who don’t like Catholics more so in the past, like the KKK in the 20s. Growing up I once had a girl on my basketball team ask ” what is your dad?” I said he is Lebanese and she said what’s that? My dad is full blood Lebanese and my mom is Irish English so for a long time I just said I was Irish because I was embarrassed to be Lebanese because no one seemed to know what it was or they would make a lesbian joke. I am independent as well. It takes more courage to question the majority than it does to follow them. I have both liberal and conservative beliefs. You are so right on that Democrats think it’s not okay to kill murderers but it is okay to kill an innocent child. I watch both conservative and liberal news media because I believe the truth usually lies somewhere in between and those people clearly have an agenda. It seems in the conservative media they constantly bring up African-Americans who have done well for themselves like Colin Powell and Dr. Ben Carson who despite being black and poor became great successes. I believe they do that in a way to inspire young African-Americans. I believe the Democratic Party also wants to help African-Americans but because of guilt or social morality they feel that they need to give them free things to help them. The two need to meet somewhere in between; give a hand up not a handout, make trade schools and community colleges free especially in low income minority areas. I’m okay with welfare but there must be strings attached; they need to look for a job once a week, get grants for trade schools and community colleges and eventually higher education institutions(but that is much more expensive and would take longer to implement so baby steps), attend a vocational training, even doing volunteer work which could lead to a job and raised awareness. But because both parties battled back-and-forth it seems like loyalty to the party comes before loyalty to the people and I believe that’s why nothing much seems to get done. Being an independent thinker like you and I is the best gift anybody could have in the world of politics and life in general. Also have you noticed that it seems like 90% of politicians are lawyers LOL! I really think if Congress maybe had a more diverse background of people like sociologist, historians, scientists, social workers, and psychologists Congress would be a better place. You have a really important message that needs to be heard. I’m not a blogger nor do I know how to follow one do you have a Facebook page or anything?
    Thanks for being an independent!

  17. I think she ought to run for office.

  18. I just stumbled on your blog and I am so inspired by your courage and educated viewpoint. You are definitely a role model to me. I have experienced racism and bigotry from Black Americans, American-born citizens, and the Hispanic community. I am a Caucasian female from Europe that became a US citizen, raised by a hard working single mother that never took a dime of welfare. She taught me to fend for myself and empowered me to graduate college. I cant stand the hypocrisy of entitled individuals that victimize themselves, blame the government for their personal dispositions, and hate on others because of their ethnicity. I believe the key to healing these ailments though is positive self-esteem, not blame. If we teach people, from within the community, to believe in their worth and back up their efforts with honest work, there would be so much more love and economic growth within our nation.

    I would totally vote for you in office by the way 😉
