Wayne Dupree is a black man. When you look at the pictures of the many events that he attends throughout the states, he is surrounded by a sea of white people. Does that sound racist? It’s not meant to be. It is just a fact. They exist, but there are very few black conservatives. However, don’t take my word for it, let the evidence speak for itself.I’m a Latino man, Puerto Rican to be exact. Though my skin color may stand out a little less than Dupree’s, there are just as few of us Latinos in the conservative ranks as well. Again, I’ll let the evidence speak for itself!That may sound racist by your typical liberal standards, but it is not. It just is the truth. A fact. Take that how you want to take it. There are not many of us, though we are trying to change that in our efforts to save this country.[twitter-follow username=”arodomus”]All that being said, when Wayne Dupree invited me to join him in West Virginia, I was quite reluctant to go. I’m a Latino from the South Bronx. What the hell business does a Latino from the South Bronx have at a place like West Virginia? Don’t they hunt us in those types of places? That too may sound racist, but it is not. Now I’m just taking a jab at my friends from West Virginia, Shaun Adkins, Junebug, Mike Holbrook, Joshua Lyle, and the rest of y’all! By the way, get a look at Adkins representing the Corps on Fox! Check out that intense look in his eyes!
Well, we all know how wrong I was on the topic of going to West Virginia. I received nothing but love when I was out there! You can read more about that topic here.
Guys like Dupree and myself are minorities in more ways than one. We are often shunned by our “own” race members. We are looked at as race traitors, sellouts, wannabe white, and Uncle Toms. I’m sure that many of you have seen the video of the NAACP treatment of black conservatives. That angry woman damn near gave herself an aneurysm fighting with these guys!
I have always stood up for people like us. The few, the proud, the conservative minority. I often share why we do what we do. However, there are moments when I question myself on this. Take a look at what someone wrote on another forum. Along with my measured responses to the guy. How the discussion continues is entirely up to him, and how he responds. If he wants to have a go, we can have a go. I’m a Chairborne Ranger, and I’m not afraid to fight!
I know that most conservatives would not agree with this crazy guy in the posts below, but it can’t be ignored that people like him do exist among our ranks. All I ask is that if you know someone like this guy, that you work towards educating, and getting them out of that mindset. There is no place for this kind of hatred in the USA.
****UPDATE. There’s more from W.****
