The non-woke gentleman from North Carolina

“One of the finest speeches you will hear in this or any other year.” ~ Gerard Van der Leun

This dude is going places.

You could do worse than check in on The American Digest every morning to see what Gerard Van der Leun has come up with.

Today I found a speech by one Mark Robinson, a candidate for lieutenant governor in North Carolina. He grew up in an impoverished house as the 9th of 10 children abd experienced alcoholism and domestic abuse first hand.

I prefer the written word to videos, but a text doesn’t do justice to oratory if it’s real oratory. And Mark Robinson does real, old-school oratory.

What’s really interesing, however, is that he’s black, but his audience appears to be mostly white, and they are cheering like crazy. His message is explicitly evangelical Christian, and I contend that nothing can bring the races together like a share Christian faith.

He speaks about the black experience, and he is decidely not woke. Enjoy:
