A Black political activist said one of the things that changed his mind to becoming a Conservative was finding out the truth about Planned Parenthood and abortion.
Patrick Hampton is a Community Leader, Youth Pastor, Director of Goodwill Youth advantage Mentoring Program and an Architect for social change.
Hampton has also been an abstinence educator in the public schools and is a husband and father of four young boys.
“The time is now,” Hampton says.
“The youth of today are the leaders of today. If we fail to sow the seeds of true education and real leadership into our young people today, we will be forced to reap the weeds of our ignorance verses the flowers of our love tomorrow.”
In a speech before the Chattanooga Tea Party, Hampton told the crowd there was hope in changing the Black mindset on politics.
He said that the young people have a lot of negative or evil things going on around them, “There’s not a lot of goodness around them,” he said.
So, he said, “I restore goodness into their heart.”
“The question is what is shaping the perspective of our young people?”
“Is it American values? I say no. Is it the Constitution of the United States? Of course not. I’m going to tell you what I believe is the number one thing shaping the mind of white kids, Black kids, Hispanic kids, Asian kids is hop-hop culture…I did not say hip-hop music, I said hip-hop culture,” Hampton told the group.
“Our youth have been bombarded with anti-American propaganda for decades through music and our public education system. Youth are being taught that Christianity is a White man’s religion…Also, youth believe that there are no moral absolutes. So, is there any hope?” Hampton asked.
“I want to stand here and tell you there is hope because I’m standing before you right now as a product of hip-hop subculture. As a product of a lot of these teachings,” he sand.
Hampton then detailed how he became a Black conservative and was able to come out of a lot of the things he was programed to believe.
“It’s people that I met along the way. Conservative people that I met along the way that changed my perspective. Because they chose to engage me. Not me engaging them. But they chose to engage me, “ he explained.
One of the examples he mentioned is a woman who worked for a pro-life pregnancy center that told him everything about Planned Parenthood and abortion.
“It blew my mind. I had no clue that abortion affected the Black community like it was. I was just a young Black man growing up in District 5. Didn’t have any clue that…abortion even took place in Chattanooga. She took seven hours and I sat in her couch and she taught me everything she knows. I didn’t know it then but she was teaching me social Conservatism,” he told the crowd.
“And by meeting those people and them influencing my life, I’m standing before you today as a Black Conservative…God has called me as a Conservative to stay in the inner city and have impact on these kids,” Hampton said.
