Black Votes Matter Because Black Life Matters

life liberty and the pursuit of happiness

Every year, every election cycle, I hear the redundant question: "Why do Blacks vote for pro-abortion rights candidates?"

For me, the response is spiritual in nature.

Given past wrongs, abuses, and injustices, many Blacks remain angry and wounded and as a result cannot see policy, because emotions can cloud vision.

"But when Moses delivered this message to the Israelites, they didn’t even hear him — they were that beaten down in spirit by the harsh slave conditions," Exodus 6:9 MSG.

As a result, here in 2020, we still find voters dealing with skin color injuries. I’m just praying that at the end of the day, Christ will heal the wounds, and that love will prevail over skin. We need to forsake color blindness; open our eyes and vote for life.

Let's remember, and never forget, millions of Blacks still support life from the "womb to the tomb."

Millions of Blacks also support strong and healthy families.

They also support school choice for communities.

Thus, it's time for our vote to match our beliefs.

In November and December of 2020, Georgia became an epicenter with respect to the Black vote in America.

Globally speaking, eyes of are focused on us.

Recently, I have networked with hundreds of African-Americans united with prayer meetings, open letters, letters, and peaceful protests in and around Atlanta, Georgia during the ongoing U.S. Senate race.

Issues like abortion, the civil rights of children in the womb, the transgender issues with respect to minors, and other concerns were on the hearts of voters.

In answer to these and other concerns.

I myself have taken part in a prayer movement (#NOTONMYWATCH)

This movemeent has emerged during the current election season.

Additionally, the #IAMAMAN2020 movement is surging, as is #IT’SOURCHOICEFORGOODEDUCATION, which has rallied youthful voices to promote the cause.

I’m a cosponsor for this free, family friendly event: (Sat, Jan 2, 2021 at 1:00 PM) 

I’ve also signed on with The Frederick Douglass Leadership Foundation, which has amassed a cadre of voter awareness strategies, including a prayer rally in Atlanta, and a circulating open letter.

This is occurring with support from national pastors and leaders who are united to advance biblical principals in voting booths.

In yet another open letter, and prayer rally, the #everyblacklifemattersmovement is challenging pro-abortion rights candidates and elected officials to stop supporting abortion; and to serve the Black communities of America with life, not death.

As we approach the culmination of the 2020 Senate race in Georgia next week, we are praying that millions of Blacks will wake up.

Today, with eyes on Georgia, with heads bowed down, and prayers lifted up, we urge America to stand up for truth, for justice, and the American way.

We remain grateful to God for President Trump, America’s most anti-abortion president ever. We thank God for the two anti-abortion, pro-family, pro-education, pro-Black business, pro-religious freedom Georgia candidates; those running for U.S. Senate.

We still have a dream that families across America, one blood, one human race, will wake up, and choose life, remember God, and vote for life.

Wishing all have had a Merry Christmas and now praying for Happy New Year in 2021.

If we just do our part, God will help us.

Please let us all vote for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, which at the time of our nation's Founding — as they are now — are promised to all.
