Getting The Message Out There!

My good buddy, Claver at has put up the above billboard at the Martin Luther King, Jr. exit of the 610 South Loop in Houston.

Isn't it wonderful?!

Claver explains:

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard good conservatives and Republicans ask the question, “How can we begin sharing with the African-American community the true history of the GOP? We’re the party that freed the slaves!” For many, maybe even you, it’s a concern that so many in the Black community don’t know the history of the party and we’re always looking for a way to get the truth to them. The party that always wanted to keep them down was the Democratic Party. The party that really shares their values is the Republican Party.

We suffer from frustration because it appears that many of our party leaders are at a loss for how to get the message to the communities of color that we have always been the party of equality, prosperity, and individual liberty. Sometimes it appears we are just feeling around in the dark trying to grasp for an answer and we keep coming up empty handed.

The team of feels we have a plan that will be effective. Our mission is to focus on “messaging”, to engage the communities of colors with truth, and compel them to learn more about the party of Lincoln and reassess their political affiliations.

Our messaging has to rely heavily on “old media” — radio, TV, periodicals, and billboards. Although the rise of new media has been fast and furious, the facts are it’s still a relatively small number of people that enjoy Facebook, Twitter, and all the other social networking sites. Everyone has a radio, a TV, or passes by billboards most everyday.

So that is how he came up with the idea of billboard. Claver is determined to get our message out to the black community. If you feel the same way, then give him some $$ love to help him get out this vital message.

For more information on why Dr. King was a Republican, go here.

Dr. Alveda C. King, affirmed that her uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican in this article. Scroll to 2nd page.

This should come at no surprise. Dr. King's father, Martin Luther King Sr. was a lifelong registered Republican.

This billboard is not alone. Florida, South Carolina, and Colorado have also put these billboard's up.
