About MAGA Black
MAGA Black was started by two black conservatives, James Golden and Autry Pruitt. The concept was NOT to build a destination solely for black conservatives or to solely promote black conservatism, but to be a destination for ALL conservatives.
Frankly, we founded this destination out of frustration. We are fed up with the racial narratives that the left uses to paint conservatives as bigots and racists, simply because we have a different view of public policy and politics. For decades, the Left has played the race card and slandered conservatives as ‘racist’ along with anyone who disagrees with their ideology. Many of those false narratives have gone unchallenged, or are weakly defended in the media. And it happens every election year like clockwork.
We are committed to changing that. We are committed to fighting back in the arena of ideas and in communities that have been ignored or underserved by those who don’t believe change is necessary or achievable.
So - what does “black conservatism” mean?
Like every other American conservative, black conservatives believe America is the greatest nation in history and we must ensure that greatness is passed on to future generations.
Like every other conservative American, black conservatives believe America’s best days are ahead of us. We can become an even greater nation.
Like every other conservative American, black conservatives believe being an American is a blessing, a privilege and with it comes responsibilities.
Like every other conservative American, black conservatives believe the American dream offers a light of hope to the world. And we want that light to continue to shine brightly.
Like every other conservative American, black conservatives understand this is OUR country. Our unique history gives us the right to fully exercise and appreciate our freedoms. And to make excuses to no one.
We have been in America since this country was imagined and before it was founded. We are Americans first. We are stakeholders in America and this is the land of our ancestors. Their blood, sweat and tears are part of the soil and fabric of this nation. We have earned the right to call America our home, to take pride in being American, and to have a full voice in shaping the direction of this great land, without being called ‘Uncle Toms’ or other divisive and slanderous names.
MAGA Black Goals
- To debunk the phony liberal narrative that Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, evangelicals and even conservative Democrats are racist.
- To recruit and support conservatives seeking elective office.
- To identify, recruit and support a new wave of conservatives, including blacks, Hispanics, women and others who, through intimidation by the Left, are reluctant to identify as conservative even though their values and lifestyles are conservative.
- To defend conservative media outlets and elected officials from coordinated attacks by the Left.
- To win elections.
That is why we are MAGA Black.
