From the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation Spring 2011 Newsletter:
By Bill Brooks, Former Development Director and current Executive Director of the Henry Sheldon Museum
(The Coolidge Foundation) -- As the 1924 presidential election approached, two leading African American Republican Party leaders, longtime associates of President Calvin Coolidge, were divided on their endorsements. William Clarence Matthews (1877 – 1928) endorsed Calvin Coolidge and William Henry Lewis (1868-1949) endorsed the Democratic Party nominee John W. Davis of West Virginia.
Both gentlemen were from the south – Lewis was born in Berkley, Virginia, the son of former slaves, and Matthews was born in Selma, Alabama. Lewis attended Amherst College from 1888-1992, while Coolidge was there from 1891-1895; they overlapped during one academic year. Lewis went on to Harvard Law School 1892-1894, where Matthews was later an undergraduate from 1901-1905. Both Lewis and Matthews were spectacular athletes. Lewis played football at both Amherst and Harvard and then coached at Harvard from 1895 to 1906, and he trained Matthews, who excelled in both football and baseball. They were loyal Republicans, the party of Lincoln, as were most African Americans of the period. [During their lifetimes they were identified as “colored” or Negro,” but I have chosen to use the modern identification of African American.]
The issue that led to their contradictory presidential endorsements centered on the party platforms, or rather their interpretations of those platforms, and the candidates’ positions on the Ku Klux Klan. Lewis concluded that the Republican Party platform was not strong enough in its criticism of the KKK and censured President Coolidge for not being more public in denouncing the Klan.
He issued a fifteen page criticism of the Republican Party platform and the President on the issue of the KKK. Lewis endorsed the candidacy of John W. Davis of West Virginia based on the Davis renunciation of the KKK in a speech by Davis on August 21, 1924 at Sea Girt, New Jersey: “If any organization, no matter what it chooses to be called, whether it be KKK or any other name, raises the standard of racial and religious prejudices, or attempts to make racial origins or religious beliefs the test of fitness for public office, it does violence to the spirit of American institutions and must be condemned by all those who believe in American ideals.”

Shermichael Singleton, Republican political consultant and contributing host of Vox's Consider It, talks to Bill Weld, President Trump's sole primary challenger. He's a moderate Republican on a mission to appeal to voters who no longer feel they have a place in the GOP. Shermichael also talks to former RNC chairman Michael Steele about the challenges Republicans face in 2020 and the future of the party. Ever wonder how Donald Trump has changed the Republican Party?

According to the YouTube page for “Williams and Kalvin,” the Clintons are “serial killers who are going to rape the whole nation.” Donald Trump can’t be racist because he’s a “businessman.” Hillary Clinton’s campaign was “fund[ed] by the Muslim.”
These are a sample of the videos put together by two black video bloggers calling themselves Williams and Kalvin Johnson, whose social media pages investigators say are part of the broad Russian campaign to influence American politics. Across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, they purported to offer “a word of truth” to African-American audiences.
“We, the black people, we stand in one unity. We stand in one to say that Hillary Clinton is not our candidate,” one of the men says in a November video that warned Clinton “is going to stand for the Muslim. We don’t stand for her.”
The RBC investigation uncovered that the two sites, BlackMatters US and Black Fist, were linked to the Internet Research Agency, a Russian state-affiliated troll farm at the center of the disinformation campaign that pushed fake news sites and troll posts on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and even Google News and Gmail. Both sites are still online, though their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts have been suspended. Neither Twitter nor Facebook would confirm to Buzzfeed if their suspensions were part of either platform’s recent ventures to purge Russian influence ads."

"Racism, ethnocentricity, and racial superiority are clearly not simply 'social issues' that Christians can ignore. They are ideologies that seek to attack the gospel at its core."https://t.co/ydD8FBJXJk— Timothy Isaiah Cho (@tisaiahcho) May 2, 2019
That was the end of the story, it seemed, until two weeks ago, when the tape of that 1972 conversation in the Oval Office was made public by the National Archives:
Don’t force me by law, by statute, by Supreme Court decision . . . to cross over in those intimate things where I don’t want to go. Let me build my life. Let me have my church. Let me have my school. Let me have my friends. Let me have my home. Let me have my family. And what you give to me, give to every man in America and keep it like our glorious forefathers made it—a land of the free and the home of the brave.

Heritage Pres. Kay Coles James, a black conservative, on the appointment: Dr. Kiron Skinner "Embraces the Philosophy of Ronald Reagan
Watching Skinner on Monday, I was struck, not only by how familiar the process of hollowing out language felt but by how quickly, easily, and politely a Washington audience can accommodate itself to it. Skinner comes to the position with every conceivable qualification, her impeccable national security credentials sharpened by years of experience in academia, government and the private sector. Her stellar collaborative ability and long-standing connections across the conservative community will be vital tools in building consensus in the administration for a strong American foreign policy, and in advising the president and the secretary on turning those policy ideas into reality."
More: “Her long track record is clear: Skinner embraces the philosophy of Ronald Reagan – strong, conservative American leadership on the global stage is vitally important, both for the U.S. and for the world. In her new role, Skinner will have the opportunity to advance that philosophy, to the benefit of generations to come.”

(Reformed Online) -- Today, we are going to examine a rapidly growing movement among professing Christians called kinism. Kinist or kinism comes from the word kin, such as “kith and kin.” The movement seems to be particularly popular among conservatives and ex-theonomists (I say extheonomists because kinism is essentially racist and antinomian).
Chapter 1: Kinist Misuse of Scripture Although the kinist literature on the web is almost completely devoid of biblical exegesis of appropriate passages (in fact, their use of passages tells us more about their racist presuppositions than it does about the teaching of Scripture), we will prove that they come to the Bible with a certain worldview or idea and then twist Scripture to make it fit with their concept of reality. We will examine each passage in turn. "

Lily White Conservatism doesn't want other races/ethnicities to share conservatism.
So, it uses clever tactics to accomplish this, and one of these tactics it to ACTUALLY GET BLACK PEOPLE TO HATE CONSERVATISM.
The media also plays a HUGE role: It, too, doesn't know there are basically two different types of Black Conservatism -- solution-orinted and fame-oriented.

Because love should teach you joy,
And not the imitation,
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
I did it for you, and for me,
And because I still believe,
There's only one thing,
You can never give up,
Never compromise on,
And that's the real thing you need in love.
Why did it start?
The movement was a response to the political and socioeconomic gains made by African-Americans following the Civil War and the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which eliminated slavery. During Reconstruction, following the U.S. Civil War, black leaders in Texas and around the country gained increasing influence in the Republican Party by organizing blacks as an important voting bloc via Union Leagues and the biracial Black-and-tan faction of the Republicans.
Who labeled it?
The term lily-white movement was coined by Texas Republican leader Norris Wright Cuney, who used the term in an 1888 Republican convention to describe efforts by white conservatives to oust blacks from positions of Texas party leadership and incite riots to divide the party. The term came to be used nationally to describe this ongoing movement as it further developed in the early 20th century,including through the administration of Herbert Hoover. Localized movements began immediately after the war but by the beginning of the 20th century the effort had become national.
What were the consequences?
Conservative whites attempted to eliminate this influence and recover white voters who had defected to the Democratic Party. The effort was largely successful in eliminating African-American influence in the Republican Party leading to black voters predominantly migrating to the Democratic Party for much of the 20th century.
According to author and professor Michael K. Fauntroy, "the 'Lily-White Movement' is one of the darkest, and under-examined [sic], eras of American Republicanism.
