Black Conservatives Hold First Annual Conference in St. Louis

Star Parker headlined the first annual Conference dinner in St. Louis, Missouri tonight. Star is founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal Education, a 501(c)(3) non-profit think tank which promotes market based public policy to fight poverty. Star is a regular commentator on CNN, TBN, CSPAN, CBN, and FOX News. Star gave a tremendous speech and testimonial tonight at the Sherman Thompson Parker Memorial Scholarship Banquet.

Star Parker talks with Eugene Dokes, the vice-chairman of the St. Charles County Republican Central Committee.

The event was a great success. The speakers were terrific. Here, several attendees pose for a picture after the keynote speech. Ann Wagner and Stephanie Rubach are pictured in this group shot.

Martin Baker announced his run for Congress at Moveonup conference tonight. Martin will take on far left Rep. Lacy Clay Jr. in the Missouri District 1 race.

That’s author Andre Harper sitting at the head table.

Missouri conservative candidates Ed Martin, Peter Kinder, Sarah Steelman and Ann Wagner addressed the crowd briefly at the dinner.

Andrew Breitbart spoke at the conference this afternoon in St. Louis. I ran into Andrew at the banquet tonight.

Reboot Congress has more photos from the event.

    Conservative women are always so hot, while lots of leftist women are just “hit ’em with an ugly stick”, um, well, ugly.

  • Did anyone get the name and phone number on that hot number in the white dress? (Second photo, second from the right.)

    Look at all those racists

    I think the world of Star Parker. She has a great life’s story. I like her, and I admire her. I was delighted to meet her once. She’s the real deal.

    She looks lovely in the photo. Radiant.

    What a beautiful group of people, I will expect Pelosi and Co to come out today and call them all racccccccccists!

  • Militant Conservative

    Conservatives have genuine fun and sincere

    Smles. Yes conservative women are just beautiful.

    I think it’s the peace and confidence of the truth

    Shining for all to see. Kinda explains liberals,

    all that hate, rage and deviousness shining through.

    Powder is dry.

  • Hey Jim, like the picture of Ann Wagner. For those who don’t know Ann was a big fundraiser for George Bush. Landed her a cushy job as Ambassador to Luxemburg. She is running for the 2nd District in Missouri. Running against her is Ed Martin (click on my name to go to his web site). Ed also spoke at the event but Jim must not have wanted to include his photo since he is backing the Establishment Republican Ann Wagner. You see he and Dana Loesch think that Ann Wagner has a better chance to win since she can and already has so many ties to Washington D.C. in fact she has already held Inside The Beltway Fundraisers. I guess they feel that an Establishment Republican is the way to change Washington. Not sure a politician that was President Bush’s chief fundraiser is the way to change Washington D.C. Please help a true Conservative Republican defeat the Establishment Republican by donating to Ed’s Campaign.

    great link. thanks

    Star Parker is #1 in my opinion and she is a very good debater.

    I would so love it if Martin Baker defeats that awful man Lacy Clay Jr. That man IS a racist! Watch the votes because Clay will have a lot of dead people voteing for him.

    We patroits are going to clean house November 2012.

    Pawlenty is dropping out! Ya think the status guo has told him to to make room for the muslim lover Perry?

    #14 Ginger

    Nah, Tpaw just never got any traction.

    Same with Santorum and Cain.

    Pity as those are 3 big conservatives.

    I’ll see how it plays out for now.

    No Newt, Romney or Huntsman. Those are your

    Establishment RINO’s. Perry is not the subversive

    Democrat. Perry trusts me to keep and bear arms.

    THAT is not a traditional dem position.

    oh please, that’s sounds awful..

    there is a difference between Muslims & Islamists,
    lets just hope & pray Perry knows the difference..

    btw, if there is anything deviant about Perry’s Muslim connections, i am
    more than certain Dr. Jasser will expose them like he did Barack Obama,
    Keith Ellison, & Andre Carsons (just to name a few)..


  • ilikai

    Who is Martin Baker and what are his stands on issues? Though he does have to be better than Clay.

  • Ginger

    bg… Would you put Barry as a Islamist or Muslim? Remember their koran tells them they can lie! 🙁 Remember when Barry was being interviewed he said “my muslim faith” and what’s his name bent over and said “you mean your Christian faith” 🙂

  • bg


    Ginger #18

    Barack is not only an Islamist appeaser, he is an Islamist agenda facilitator/sharia promoter, unfortunately for US, he is not alone..

    have you never clicked on the numerous links i & others
    have posted ad nauseum for the past several years?? 🙂

    If anyone truly believes that significant numbers of blacks are conservatives and on our side, he/she is sorely mistaken. Did any of these people decry what happened outside the State Fair in Wisconsin this year or waht happened in Des Moines last year? Did any of them lambaste the gigantic black-on-white crime rate in St. Louis?

    No, I didn’t think so.

    The poses make for nice photo-ops but in the long run most of the pictured people are NOT our allies.

    It’s too bad. I’ve seen this tragicomedy played out over a 50-year span. Gateway Pundit’s Missouri friends do NOT live on the north, west, and near-south sides of St. Louis and they do NOT live in east Kansas City.

    If anyone is not sure of what I speak, check Fred Reed’s latest essay on his site “Fred On Everything”.

    and if you don’t think the WH et al controls the
    media, then you are the one who is mistaken..

    there are numerous Black Conservatives, try
    NBRA for one v letting Fred rule your head.. 😀

    This is Excellent!

  • gene r

    2 things, first; conservative women are prettier than liberals. Compare Stephanie Rubach to Cynthia Mckinney. Second; Sherman Parker was a very good man. We worked together. I was with him when God called him home. I know he is resting in peace. If every man on earth was like Sherman there would be no violence, theft, and graft. May God bless Sherman’s family.

    Stephanie Rubach at Moveonup Conference, “My dad used to tell us, if you don’t work you don’t eat.”

    John Smith the leader of the first colony of Jamestown, also said, “Those who shall not work, shall not eat.” ~John Smith
    He didn’t like laziness or socialism.

    Reply to bg in #16:

    You write: “there is a difference between Muslims & Islamists,
    lets just hope & pray Perry knows the difference.. ”

    I have my doubts (about Perry, in this regard):
    First, Rick Perry is known to be associated with Grover Norquist:

    Second, Grover Norquist has a very troubling history vis-a-vis his relationship with those who are supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood agenda:

    As an aside, I would suggest that you place *far* too much confidence in Zuhdi Jasser: I would take Pamela Geller’s analyses over his any day:

    Conclusion: It is my sincere opinion that Perry — as on other issues (e.g., hate crimes legislation, illegal immigration, to name two) — is highly suspect and not to be trusted in the matter of discerning much of anything with regard to Islam.

    And I have voted for Perry…..

  • man_in_tx

    Off topic: Is it just me? Or, does Andrew Breitbart appear in his photo above like a skid row drunk?

    Note to Andrew: Razor blades and barber shops… Just a gentle suggestion.

    Or, perhaps, I am just not “hip” enough to appreciate some new “hangover chic” style?

  • rickperry2012

    Star Parker really lives up to her name: STAR. She is such a wonderful person and carries such a great message. CA you are so dumb for not sending her to congress, she would be absolutely stupendous.

  • Old Fan

    Great to see…

    Well done.

  • Militant Conservative

    #27 Yes your not privvy to the style of the time.

    Andrew Breitbart is a damn sight better to look at than Obama.

    Much rather see a hard woking man deshelved than a devious bastard

    looking slick. Looks foul but seems fair while Obama looks fair but is foul.

    Such a classier looking group of people than that NAACP hall of welfare queens Pelosi talked to the other day…but Star Parker needs to drop that Shiela Jackson Lee braided hair doo.

    @dex: I am one of those women pictured. I’m sorry you assume and I don’t know what “side” you’re referring to, but I love my country, I’m not a victim, and I believe in the United States Constitution.

    I attended James Madison College at Michigan State University (yes, I’m from the east side of Detroit) and have a BA in Poitical Theory Constitutional Democray and another BA in Social Relations and Policy.

    Contrary to your belief, we do exist. The point is we are here, why are you knocking it? Maybe it isn’t us you should worry about (hint: look in the mirror)

    Shelby, girl in the red top. 🙂

  • shelby

    I was honored to spend my weekend with these wonderful women–and men that truly believe in our full potential if government would just get out of our way! GOD truly blessed me this weekend and gave me morestrength and courage to remain strong, principled, and free!
