Publisher's Summary

As a Black man, a conservative, a father, a husband, and a Christian, I cannot remain silent any longer. What I witnessed during the presidential election of 2016 caused me to erupt with emotion. All of the negativity and deceit that was transpiring seemed to be casting a shadow over what I believed to be the most important issues affecting our country's future.

Why I Couldn't Stay Silent tells a story of one man's pursuit to shine light in the darkness and make sense out of the gloom clouding our country's greatness. This book may challenge everything you currently believe about racism in America. My hope is that it causes you to reflect and ponder the solutions I present as possible answers to how we may come together and achieve excellence as a united nation. Take this journey with me as I walk through the good, the bad and the ugly of being a Black conservative in America.

An Amazing Book

While I listened to this via audio I’ve just purchased five additional paperback books to leave out in various places with a note to pass them on. I hope that God uses these as eye openers for folks to dig out the truth politically. But more importantly as a witness to how much “Papa” God loves THEM! Thank you David Harris Junior!

Inspiring!

David Harris is more right wing and conservative than I am and I didn’t 100% agree with everything in this book. With that said, I love the way he presented his ideas. He did so lovingly and with an open mind knowing lots of people wouldn’t agree with him. Awesome book, and awesome guy!

Awesome indeed!

David's political views as a black conservative is great and I applaud him for having the guts to ler the Democratic party that just because a person is black, the party is not entitled to your vote. Great to see beautiful black men and women stand for truth and justice in the the world of the "Business as usual" Democratic party.

A Must Read If Ever There Was

I listened to this in one day, as I just couldn’t stop listening. A devoted Christian and successful businessman, David Harris, Jr. inadvertently became a major political voice. A lover of America, he reminds us all of what is important to keep America great, and especially challenges black America to no longer have a blind allegro the Democrat Party. I’ve been following him on social media for a year now and have come to respect him greatly. I love his passion and how he calls God “Papa.” Give this book a listen! Totally worth it!

So glad he did not stay silent

Well done! This audio is well narrated and covers a variety of current issues concerning politics (both Obama & Trump), Christianity, family, and the media. Very informative! I enjoyed listening to it and just purchased the book so I can lend to friends and family. David’s love for God, family and our Country is displayed in every chapter. Highly recommend regardless of which party you support.

Outstanding

This piece is a great, deep and insightful guide into understanding America, in a more conservative approach. Enjoyable and worth listening to, over and over again.

interesting

interesting read but nothing I hadn't read before or seen online before. Interesting though from his own personal experience as a black American conservative Christian doing his best in the current ideological and information war happening in the United States. Nothing new but got to find out more about him because I follow him on social media.
