A Quick Note on Ted Hayes

Ted Hayes' website is getting slashdotted today since he's been written up in the Wall Street Journal.

I met Ted at Ofari's a couple months ago on the day that Renford Reese was the speaker. Ted is straight as advertised. Like me and a great number of other blackfolks who have been around, he has no patience for the okey-doke end of liberal agendas. What most people don't seem to understand is what black conservatives look like nor how we think. This is why a man like Ted will continue to perplex shallow people for years to come. But we clicked within minutes.

Ted's running the marathon and he's way out in front of the crowd. His is the face of black compassionate conservatism. Remember that.

But he was constructive, not merely critical, and proposed a National Homeless Plan to enlist corporations to help resistant homeless men support themselves in special communities – winning private contracts like those that now go to incarcerated prisoners.

That's what, it seems to me, makes him different from the more well known "Black conservatives." More than just critical.
