Hopeful Sign form Orange County, Florida

I have been writing for weeks about black conservatives who have much more to offer to the black community than do people like Charles Rangel, Jessie Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, and other so-called black leaders of the liberal persuasion.

The following posts all reference fine Americans with real answers for the problems blacks are facing today; a couple of these posts also make apparent the contrast between the intellectual honesty of these black conservatives and the hypocrisy and deceitfulness of the liberal black leadership:

The Wisdom of Thomas Sowell
The True Leaders of the Black Community
Farrakhan's Conspiracy Theory

Chris Malott of "Malott's Blog" has also been writing on the same subject and has contributed the following posts:

Thomas Sowell Is My Hero
A Man of Character
Star Parker On California's Assault On the Family
Star Parker on the "Millions More Movement"

I know, too, that there are thousands of other conservative bloggers out there who are trying to communicate the same message: that it is the policies and philosophies of the left that retard the progress of the black community, and the right whose policies and philosophy provide hope for a better future.

Now, here is a glimmer of some encouraging news. Maybe we are beginning to see a breakthrough. Scott Maxwell wrote an article in yesterday's Orlando Sentinel with the headline NAACP chief makes switch to GOP .

For decades, Republicans have struggled to reach out to black Americans. But now in Orange County, the GOP has to reach no further than the NAACP.

As of this week, Derrick Wallace, head of Orange County's NAACP, has switched parties -- to become a Republican.

Does everyone realize what an amazing step in the right direction this is? The NAACP has been one of the most liberal organizations in the country. It has been so liberal, in fact, that Rush Limbaugh has dubbed it the NAALCP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People)

"I've thought about this for two years," Wallace said Tuesday afternoon, just a few hours after returning from the elections office. "This is not a decision I made yesterday."

I suspect that this is a decision that more and more black Americans are thinking about all the time as the truth is becoming more widespread. That truth is that conservative values do enable, not only black Americans, but all Americans, to more closely realize our full potential as as human beings.
