Candace Owens Farmer Is Today’s Harriet Tubman

Black ideologies clashed during the REVOLT Summit in Atlanta last week. The event seats outspoken musicians, artists, and thought leaders side by side to discuss compelling topics. Among those sharing the stage were rappers T.I. and Killer Mike, activists Steve Pargett and Tamika Mallory, Trump 2020 senior adviser Katrina Pierson, and conservative influencer Candace Owens Farmer.

Before I insert my viewpoints on the popular debate, I commend the fact that there are diverse black voices sharing one room together. Much of what I’ve experienced of predominantly black gatherings resembles an echo chamber where only agreement and nods were allowed. So to witness anything like the REVOLT Summit is rare, though discussions like these are desperately needed in urban communities.

Do a Google search on the summit and you’ll have thought you were reading about a dog fight. But those who actually watched the event witnessed something much more symbolic and profound.

It was (nearly) everyone against Candace Owens Farmer (who was recently married, if you know her as Candace Owens). Boos boomed from the audience and onlookers roared with disapproval at the slightest slip of her tongue. By contrast, there were no interruptions for Killer Mike, who, though not a conservative, said the same talking points as Candace. She even shared talking points that would normally be worthy of celebration — such as President Donald Trump lifting the donation ban on faith-based HBCUs — but were met with stone silence from the crowd.

It was Candace against the world. No matter what, the audience refused her recommendations. But she still pressed forward despite painfully accepting that many would rebuke her reasoning.

Sound familiar? She’s much like a famed abolitionist who tried to convince fellow slaves to make their great escape to freedom. We know her as Harriet Tubman.

This is a comparison that some don’t want me to make. After all, no Americans alive today are or ever have been slaves, and that means Candace is no abolitionist. Though these two women are two centuries apart, they meet at one single coordinate; that is the path to freedom — be it physical or ideological.

What few seem to remember is that Tubman struggled to lead people to the North — where blacks were free men and women. Not every enslaved person was thrilled to hear her plan. In fact, some turned away and chose to continue life on the plantation. Compared to traversing the Underground Railroad, plantation life was easier to them. It was less risky. It was all they knew and wanted to know. The fact that some black slaves said no to Tubman’s journey is unknown to so many today. But the past repeats itself still today; our fearless leader being Candace Owens Farmer, who, despite what some claim to be defeat, has helped lead so many young Americans to break the chains of “the culture” — a collective idea that dictates what black people should say, do, and believe.

It’s one thing to be enslaved. It’s another when one doesn’t know he is a slave. This is ideological slavery. Those who only know one way of life and one way of thinking only see Candace as a threat to their comfort zone no different than slaves not wanting to leave the plantation when Tubman arrived.

Despite the reluctance of some, many others made the journey North. The same is true today, as many black Americans are starting to follow the paths paved by Candace and many others in the BLEXIT community. This “train” exists to lead them away from the policies that have stunted the growth and prosperity of black Americans for decades. Conservatives welcome them with open arms, providing their new brothers and sisters with a safe network where they can experience ideological liberty for themselves. Here, there is no “wrongthink,” only a diversity of ideas and discussions that will ultimately save the black community from ruin. Here, one is no longer chained to “the culture,” but free to be himself.

Today, the Underground Railroad runs again, full-speed ahead, with a millennial Moses as its conductor. We on the Right know that not everyone in the black community will follow us. Some may throw verbal sticks and stones in protest, but even they are welcome aboard. The destination is an America where black families flourish and prosperity is recognized for all. We hope to leave not a single soul behind.
