Tonight AACONS Interviews Me about Governor Palin & Black Community

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 10, 2011

Tune in tonight to my interview with African-American Conservatives (AACONS) on Blog Talk Radio. First, they will interview South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint at 10 p.m. Eastern. I will follow at around 10:20. The discussion will center around Governor Palin and a variety of issues pertaining to the Black commmunity.

Here’s what they posted as a preview:

Jim DeMint was elected senator of South Carolina in 2004 and then chairman of the Senate Steering Committee in 2006. For standing up against wasteful spending in Congress and saving Americans about $17 billion, Wall Street Journal editor Steve Moore called DeMint the “taxpayers’ greatest ally.” DeMint was also recently ranked as the Senate’s most conservative member by National Journal and as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. The senator and his wife, Debbie, have four grown children, are doting grandparents, and live in Greenville, South Carolina.

Adrienne Ross is a 7th grade English teacher in New York, yet is becoming one of the fastest rising stars of the conservative blogging world. Her work can be found on her website MotivationTruth.com, where one can also many interesting links, photographs and videos. She credits Sarah Palin for providing the spark that has brought her into the political arena and is a passionate supporter of Governor Palin. [Miss] Ross is a Born Again Christian, a basketball fan, and a motorcycling enthusiast. News Real Blog has listed Adrienne Ross as one of The Top 10 Tea Party Bloggers You Need to Read.

Sistah Talk TV Interviews Me About Being Black and Pro-Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 17, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

The Youtube clip below is an edited version of a television show I took part in this past Saturday in New York City. Sistah Talk TV is an up-and-coming public access talk show, produced by Zakkee Starman, designed to cater to the issues and lifestyles of Black women. Shawn Seymour Gipson, a friend I went to school with and have not seen for over 20 years, is the show’s co-host. When we reconnected via Facebook, she mentioned having seen my blog, MotivationTruth. She was quite intrigued as many people are when they find out that I, a Black woman, don’t espouse the agenda of the Democratic Party.

After Shawn spoke to the show’s producer, he began to take a look at my work and contacted me about coming on as a guest. He feels that the Black conservative voice is one that is not often heard, and of course he is right. Regardless of his personal view of where I stand politically, he felt it important that people realize that not only don’t we all look alike, we don’t all think alike either. I refused his first few invitations, but eventually–after much thought, prayer, and counsel from people I trust–I made the decision to do the show.

That takes us to Saturday. First of all, I was well-aware of what I was getting myself into. I’ve read some comments by my Black sisters recently that suggest that I should have known what was coming. Believe me, I knew what was coming, but I also know that there is substance behind where I stand, and I’m not usually one to be intimidated, although I certainly don’t like to be ambushed.

The show was heated from the beginning. The guest panel consisted of two other guests: singer/actress/comedienne, Penwah Phynjuar, and Robin Michele Downes of yogaflava.com. The co-hosts are Dietra Kelsey and Shawn Seymour Gipson.

Most of the opposition came from Penwah, a strong supporter of President Obama, who made her–shall we say?–disapproval of Governor Palin and those who support her quite apparent. In her mind, which she expressed freely, I am simply an ignorant sell-out, a “Kizzie,” not Black enough, the list goes on. She discussed her view that I’ve been played by what she deems to be flat-out racism on the part of Governor Palin, Republicans, and the Tea Party movement as a whole. There really wasn’t any reasoning with her, nor was there any evidence given to support her claims. I’ll let the video say the rest.

Ms. Downes spoke well of conservatives’ focus of pulling oneself up by the bootstraps; however, she took issue with Governor Palin’s hunting as shown on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” to which I quoted the Governor: “We eat; therefore, we hunt.” I truly don’t understand how people who enjoy a good steak, chicken, or pair of leather shoes are offended by those who make each of those things possible–and enjoy doing it.  People like the Palins hunt for food–not just for trophies. Although she and I disagreed on that issue, she conducted herself well. She was certainly professional and cordial.  That conversation is not on this clip, but it will be viewed when the entire episode becomes available.

The hosts, I felt, were clearly a representation of the Left, but they handled themselves well. Shawn came with the issues. Although she has bought into some of the lies out there about Governor Palin, she did not make it personal toward me. She was strong, yet respectful. Bottom line: as lively as our exchange became, we walked away agreeing to disagree, and we walked away with our friendship intact. Dietra had the difficult job of trying to be fair, giving each panelist an opportunity to speak, quelling the vitriol being thrown in my direction at times, and handling the calls coming into the studio.

Some of the calls had me scratching my head. One gentleman stated that Governor Palin’s use of “soccer mom” (he meant hockey mom) during the campaign was a dog whistle for racism. Maybe it’s me, but how is it her fault if not many Black people play hockey? Should she apologize for being proud of the sport or her children’s involvement in it?

I will leave my remarks at that. The Youtube clip gives you an idea, but you really won’t get the full effect until you see the full version. It truly was the lion’s den, and I suppose I was intended to be dinner, but I can bite back–respectfully. It saddens me that there are people out there who hold such hate for Governor Palin without any good reason, who accuse her of racism without any evidence, and who accuse me of selling out my race because I don’t need someone else to think for me but can reason on my own. I persevere nonetheless. My goals was to go and discuss the issues: why I support Governor Palin, what sets her apart from the others, what she’s fighting for on behalf of this country. I believe I did just.

I thank Sistah Talk TV for allowing me a voice Saturday, even though it was indeed a battle, and the comments since then–some of them anyway–have been downright ridiculous. It is my prayer that I conducted myself in a way befitting a Christian, a professional, and an unabashed Governor Palin supporter–yes, even as a Black woman. Besides, the principles she espouses: respect for life, national security security, limited government, lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, and job creation know no color. They serve each of us well, and both the sistahs and brothahs out there would do well to at least listen with an open heart. There’s too much at stake to play the race game.

Eddie Burke Interviews Me: Being a Black Conservative & Glenn Beck Appearance

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 4, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Glenn Beck had a great show planned for this Friday, and I was going to be on it. This was to be town-hall style, featuring an audience of Black conservatives. Beck has been calling this show one that will not soon be forgotten.

Unfortunately, Glenn has unexpectedly had to have appendix surgery, so the show is now scheduled to be taped next Thursday and will most likely be aired on Friday, November 13th.

In anticipation of the upcoming show, last night I was a guest on the Eddie Burke Radio Show. Eddie, Alaska’s Best, interviewed me about the Glenn Beck television show, being a Black conservative, and Governor Palin’s involvement in the NY-23rd Congressional District race.

As this will be Beck’s focus, Eddie and I spoke quite a bit about the issue of race. As most people know, being Black usually means being a Democrat. Not subscribing to that worldview opens one up to being called a “sell-out,” “Aunt Jemima,” or “Uncle Tom.” These insults most often come from other Black Americans who don’t understand people choosing to “get off the plantation,” as I often say. This interview with Eddie Burke addresses that, how the liberal agenda is counterproductive to the Black community, how it is the antithesis of the values so many of us espouse, and even how my support of Sarah Palin figures into the debate.

When Eddie asked how I am able to stand by my beliefs when there is such pressure–and sometimes resentment–placed on Black conservatives, my answer was simple: “It’s just called the courage of your convictions.”

Eddie asked some great questions during this interview, which led to an insightful conversation. Be sure to listen to both parts 1 and 2–and be sure to tune into Glenn Beck next week.

Adrienne Ross and Clifton Bazar to be on Glenn Beck

Posted by Ron Devito on November 4, 2009

Update: Due to emergency appendix surgery for Glenn Beck, this interview is now scheduled to air Friday, November 13, 2009

Clifton Bazar and Adrienne Ross, Board Member, Media Director, and New York State Organizer of the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee will participate in a town hall-style forum on the Glenn Beck show Friday, November 613, 2009. Please check local listings for air times.

Glenn Beck is hosting the show with Black Conservative guests; Adrienne and Clifton will participate in the discussion with other like-minded conservatives.

If you have met Adrienne or have heard or watched any of her interviews regarding Governor Palin, then you know this will be a must-see event.

Both Adrienne and Clifton are authors on Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments, and Sarah’s Web Brigade.

Clifton Bazar

Clifton Bazar is the editor and publisher of Another Black Conservative.

Mr. Bazar is a black conservative from a black conservative family. He was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and finally settled in New Jersey. Throughout his life he knew he did not share many of the common beliefs of other American blacks. For starters, he never took to the term “African-American.” He has meet too many real Africans who are now Americans, to ever with a straight face say we share something in common other than skin tones. Their history and culture is truly a unique and is a completely different experience from his own. His culture is distinctly American, from the way he speaks, thinks, dresses and acts and you know what else? He loves it! So for him, he will always be an American who just happens to be black. He puts himself and his beliefs out here in cyberspace, to show his fellow blacks that there is something more. That one need not accept the false promise of the next social program, the belief in government as savior or the next Democratic candidate will right all wrongs. That true Hope and Change comes from belief in yourself, in a nation that allows dynamic movement if you are bold enough, smart enough and brave enough to make it happen.


Adrienne Ross

Adrienne Ross is the editor and publisher of Motivation: Truth and a Board Member, Media Director, and NY State Organizer for the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee. Ms. Ross met Governor Palin in Auburn, NY in early June, 2009 as part of celebrating Alaska’s 50th Year of Statehood. She met Governor Palin a second time during a month-long trip to Alaska.

Ms. Ross is also an author on C4P, and SarahNet.

Ms. Ross is a born-again Christian who is madly in love with the Lord Jesus Christ. She is also a middle school English Language Arts teacher. She chooses to use the gifts God has given her to be a voice of truth in this crucial time in our nation. She is taking a stand for righteousness and for leaders, like Sarah Palin, who stand for righteousness because, as the Bible declares, “Righteousness exalts a nation.” It’s time for people of integrity to stand up, speak up, and make a difference. Her sole motivation? The TRUTH!
