Can Only Whites Be Conservative?

There was a recent report released by the Census Bureau stating that for the first time in US history Non-White births exceed White births.

“Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 49.6 percent of all births in the 12-month period that ended in July 2011. Minorities — including Hispanics, blacks, Asians and those of mixed race — reached 50.4 percent, representing a majority for the first time in the country’s history.”

This particular fact doesn’t bother me because I still believe that the American spirit isn’t determined by the color of its citizens’ skin but by the culture that is fostered by our Republic.  We are still a true melting pot where we take the best that diversity has to offer and blend that with our Freedom and adherence to the Constitution to make the best country in the world.  

But I noticed that one particular Leftist, @TimJacobWise, seems to think that the Conservative political group will soon be dead without a majority of Whites to fill its rolls.  This was evident by his tweet below:

I responded back by stating that I found it ironic that a man who had written 7 books on racism (A fact I got from his Twitter profile) would think that only Whites can be Conservatives.  Here was my tweet and his response:


So what Mr. Wise is saying is that people of color who support Conservatism today are like people of color who supported slavery.  That is quite a reach and I know several people of color who are Conservative who I would not classify as such.  Conservative principles with regard to fiscal, economic and foreign policy don’t have racist foundations and don’t require its proponents to be White and to say that they do is truly stupid.  Here was my response to him and I never received a reply.

Scrolling through his timeline I discovered another interesting tweet:

According to Mr. Wise, if you read more books by Conservative authors than those written by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. then you are an idiot (“by definition”).  I didn’t know that comparing the quantity of Conservative books read vs. those written by Dr. King was part of the definition of the word “idiot” but a guy who has written 7 books on racism has to know, right?  I am a huge fan of Dr. King and think he was a true patriot and I cast no aspersions on him but I think Mr. Wise’s definition of idiot is a bit of hyperbole.

Here is a link showing all the books written by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the total is 8 so you are only allowed to read 8 books written by Conservatives or you are “by definition” considered an idiot.  It’s a good thing Mr. Wise isn’t a Conservative or we couldn’t read all of his books on racism since he’s only written 7.

  1. As an Asian-American conservative, and admirer of Sowell and Hayek, I appreciate this! “People of color” are too smart to stick with the liberal victimhood narrative.

  2. Books written by my favorate author, Thomas Sowell, more than 50 [http://tsowell.com/writings.html]. Books I’ve read by Mr. Sowell, at least eight. Articles I’ve read by Mr. Sowell, hundreds. Books I’ve read by King, Hayek, Coulter, Savage, and Mr. Wise, none. My political ideology, independent conservative. My race, black. Family members political ideology, mostly left-leaning independents. Conclusion: Mr. Wise isn’t so wise.
