Black Conservatism

"As if the struggle was not already hard enough, I am becoming increasingly aware of the complicated situation we have here in America concerning the Black Conservative. This is arguably one of the tougher ideological currents to break through. They represent not only a break from traditional African culture, but a denial of the need for contemporary agitation, as if we as Africans are free. They clamor about integration, not even knowing the meaning of the term. They embody the quote from Zora Neale Hurston, “my skinfolk ain’t necessarily my kinfolk.” Their integration means the transplantation of a black face into a white space, not the transplantation of black culture, philosophy, and ideology into an integrated space."
