Brandon Tatum, a black former police officer in Tucson, Arizona, says he started out as a liberal, but through a personal evolution over time, he became a conservative.
“I started out like most young, black men in the country, where default is being liberal. Default is being a Democrat,” he explains.
“All of the Democrat positions that you see most African-American men believing today is what I believed before, even though I wasn’t politically involved as much as I am today. But over time, I began to wake up and be more involved, and I woke up to what the reality was,” Tatum said. “A lot of that happened when I was in college. I started to see that the country isn’t as racist as I thought it was.”
