What Kamala Harris Won’t Tell Black Churches Is Exactly What They Need To Hear

By Curtis Hill

Vice President Kamala Harris will be appearing by video message in more than 300 black churches in Virginia from now until the state election on Nov. 2. Reports call Harris’s outreach plan an effort to “boost” Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe in a tightening race for governor of a state that both parties are eager to claim as a pivotal prize heading into the 2022 election cycle.

I am sure Harris expects a nearly automatic reaction to her plea, and that it will produce overwhelming support from the black parishioners targeted. After all, who can forget President Joe Biden’s message to the black community when he said “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote Democrat.

As a black conservative and former state attorney general, I’m excited for what the vice president will choose not to say to the congregations of these 300 churches. Here’s why.

Harris will very likely not talk about the 20 million black children who have been aborted since the 1973 Roe v. Wade court decision legalizing abortion. She won’t talk about the generations of black youngsters, children and even grandchildren of the black babies aborted, who themselves were never born thanks to Democrats’ staunch advocacy for a procedure that targets black women.

She won’t talk about the population of American blacks continuing to stagnate and decline as a result of the disproportionate percentage of black abortions in America as compared to all abortions performed. Although black women make up only 13 percent of the female population in the United States, they account for 36 percent of U.S. abortions. This disproportionate figure is almost exactly the ratio of incarcerated blacks compared to the population of blacks in the country — 35 percent to 13 percent.

So why am I so excited if she’s not going to talk about the sanctity of life, or the violence that’s destroying black communities, or the discord in our public education system that is failing to adequately prepare young black children for economic opportunity? Because black America knows there is a problem and especially the black church knows there is a problem.

The problem is that the black community has been down this road before and has seen decline over the past several decades despite entrenched Democrat leadership in large urban centers and blue states like Virginia. Homicide and violent crime are up 30 percent over a year ago, which is a big deal in the black community as, despite being only 13 percent of the population, black Americans represent 56 percent of murder victims nationally and approximately 90 percent of the murderers of other blacks.

Black churches are aware of these astonishing murder statistics because it’s the black clergy who get the calls from government officials late at night to quell the violence and calm the crowd. It’s the black churches that hold the funerals for the scores of young black victims of self-inflicted urban violence. All this while Democrats continue to strip law enforcement budgets to prove they’re “woke” to leftist “defund the police” BS and black communities suffer loss of police protection.

While the Democrat Party, led by Biden and Harris, tries to mandate this country further and further into a socialist agenda, it’s the black community who constantly gets the shaft from these same Democrat politicians who promise them the moon, the sun, and the stars every election cycle. Then, once the black vote is secured (thus securing the election), Democrats expect the black community to stay patient while moving them further away from that promised moon.

Never mind a black agenda item such as education choice reforms that would provide marked improvement for young black boys and girls. Instead, Democrats prioritize loosening border restrictions and allowing more illegal entries, which will further burden public education and negatively affect the black children trapped in low-performing public schools.

Vice President Harris may have sung in her church choir, but she has never advocated for the lives of unborn children. The black church, however, rightly supports life as a gift from God that should never be abandoned.

Democrats in Virginia believe it’s not only legal but acceptable to allow babies born alive to be kept comfortable and simply die out after birth. This can never be the position of the church in America, whether it be black or white.

The “black church” is no different from the “white church” in its recognition of the need for a great awakening that will restore America as one nation under God, dedicated to justice and mercy and committed to loving our neighbors. Yet the vice president and the Democrat Party go out of their way to insist that America be a nation that does not honor its Creator, the importance of family, and the role of fathers and men in shaping the character of young boys.

The black church had a front-row seat to experience the advances in the state of black America during the Trump administration, with record-low unemployment and economic gains that resulted from policies that actually uplifted and empowered black citizens as independent stakeholders, not merely as pawns of one party or the other.

I hope the church is paying careful attention to what Vice President Harris is not saying — and that the values of the black churches and all churches in Virginia find their way to the voting booths on Nov. 2.
