My loss, My drive To Do More

Historian Arthur Schlesinger once made a resounding statement about America’s democratic experiment. He recalled that American democracy often flies closer to the flame, but it escapes the stronger for it. And perhaps the events leading to the November 2020 election will not feature anywhere in the annals of history because of our country’s inextricable past ties to prejudice and discrimination. The residents of the 15th District will emerge stronger, however, its black community must not remain victims of vicious stereotypes and racist tropes. My constitutional rights were violated in this race because I was denied a fair chance to represent the people in the election, sadly I wasn’t the only candidate. Granted, I will work in tandem with the elected officials alongside other organizations to continue serving this community, because this is what we must do.

I am categorically grateful to the 15th Congressional District residents for opening their minds and giving my campaign the support to attempt to become your representative in Washington D.C. Unfortunately, I had a horrible loss, but I have prevailed stronger and wiser. I still hurt from the disenfranchisement and the cruelty of some individuals in the political world. However, without a shred of doubt, we will continue to work hand in hand to achieve the American dream and maintain our land’s innocence and optimism. America’s imagination, thinking, creativity, and culture must not be impoverished. Indeed, communities are transformed through visionary leadership, and residents of the 15th District, like any other community, must leverage the benefits of a good leader through voting, advocacy and accountability.
