About Black Sphere News
Due to the death of Kevin Jackson's mother when he was five, he was adopted and raised by his grandparents who were staunch Democrats.

About The Black Conservative
The Black Conservative seeks to provide a wellspring of diverse and eclectic commentary on politics and culture from a black center-right perspective. This blog is a labor of love and concern—concern for the conservative movement and the lack of thought-provoking black center-right commentary on both “black” and “conservative” news stations and news sites. While black publications and blogs are littered with the progressive perspective, conservative publications, on the other hand, tend to feature black conservatives who are pariahs in the very communities they claim to want to engage. Instead of offering solutions, many prefer to make a living attacking black culture.
