Because the history of 'political America' does show a close alliance of republican philosophy and the black population, most notably is the relationship and efforts of President Abraham Lincoln during the time of the Civil War, what caused the parting of ways between the two?

The simple answer is Constitutional Conservatism has not been explained to everyday people in everyday terms. Save the "beltway speak" for your next congressional fundraiser. Second, I offered a more formal response in a few paragraphs titled "Conservativism Because". Below is the opening to that answer and the full article can be read here.
As an American citizen, "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness", are the inalienable rights granted me, first by my Creator, then affirmed by the Constitution of The United States.

Living free and realizing my full potential can happen when government exercises its limited role as set forth in the founding documents of this country.
