Introduction Founding editor, in 1985, of the hard copy newsletter, Issues & Views. Its editorials countered notions of victimization and collective entitlement prevalent in the black community. Although reflecting a conservative and often libertarian perspective, it was never rightwing, and did not affiliate with any political party. The newsletter's conservatism was derived from the wisdom of earlier generations of American blacks, like Booker T. Washington, who attempted to steer their people towards greater economic self-reliance. The newsletter also challenged ideologues who misused "civil rights," in order to deny basic rights to others and to impose politically correct mandates. Editorials were committed to principles of free speech, with the First Amendment paramount. CONTACT: issues@concentric.net
