I guess the list is of those influential within the Black populace, not in the conservative blogosphere.

In TIME"S MOST INFLUENTIAL 100 Americans of 2010, they only named one black conservative also--Condi Rice, so black and white thought when it comes to black conservatives are about the same.

TheGrio’s 2011 African-American Leadership Survey
Final Report

As a website devoted to the news, opinions, and contributions of black people in America and around the world, TheGrio.com is interested in understanding what the past teaches us about our
current political moment and how it helps us prepare for the future. In this spirit, TheGrio assembled a group of contemporary academics, artists and activists to assess the most impactful African-American leaders in U.S. history. Each is uniquely suited through scholarship, experience, and
commitment to black communities to assess the legacy of African-American leadership. The jury for “TheGrio’s 2011 African-American Leadership Survey” includes the following individuals.
Brief bios appear at the end of this report.

Majora Carter
Barbara Young
Mark Anthony Neal
Roy Innis
Lonnie Isabel
Nina Kennedy
Darlene Clark Hine
William Jelani Cobb
Paula Giddings
Bakari Kitwana
Joshua Guild
Khalil Gibran Muhammad
Blair Kelley
Marc Morial
Shirley Sherrod
James Young
George Curry
Bev Smith
Clarence Lusane
Obery Hendricks
Mary Wilson
Lonnie Bunch
Robin D.G. Kelley
Peniel Joseph
Consuella Askew

Each member of the expert panel was asked to complete a survey, which asked them to assess 170 black leaders. These leaders are individuals who worked in times as distant as American slavery and moments as recent as our own. The experts made independent rankings of each leader on the list. The expert jury also nominated leaders not included in
the original list. An alphabetical list of all 170 leaders and all additional names is included at the end of this report.

Maybe you should check out the history book my friend. On the surface Washington was a conservative to get things done but underneath that facade was a person working behind the scences promoting civil rights and other minority causes. GO VIKINGS!!!

How is promoting civil rights and other minority causes inconsistent with being a conservative, especially in Booker T. Washington's time.  shrug
