Harris tries to give encouraging advice to young Africans, but nobody can figure out what she means

A tired-looking Vice President Kamala Harris spoke at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, serving up a nearly incomprehensible word salad of advice to the young people of Africa, almost making President Biden sound coherent in comparison.

The less-than-sage advice came at the closing of her comments, “Throughout history, in moments of uncertainty and change, the world has often turned to young people to help lead the way forward. Now is no different.”

“So to Africa’s young leaders, I say: I am an optimist about what lies ahead for Africa and, by extension, for the world because of you — because of your energy, your ambition, and your ability to transform seemingly intractable problems into opportunities. Simply put, your ability to see what can be, unburdened by what has been,” Harris asserted.

The commentary left many scratching their heads wondering exactly what Harris was talking about. Her word salads have become as infamous as they are intractable.

The vice president’s remarks came at the beginning of the Biden administration’s three-day gathering that brought together leaders from 49 African nations and the African Union for high-level talks. The vice president announced that “the administration would invest an additional $100 million to expand the Young African Leaders Initiative and that the U.S. Export-Import Bank was entering new memorandums of understanding that will clear the way for $1 billion in new commercial financing in Africa,” according to the Associated Press.

Approximately 60% of Africa’s population is under the age of 25 and that demographic could hit 80% by 2050 according to the Biden administration. Harris pointed to those numbers, contending that they demand an increased focus on the continent.

“This represents an enormous potential for the world in terms of economic growth, and for social and political progress,” she pandered to the young leaders’ forum. “I strongly believe that the creativity and ingenuity of Africa’s young leaders will help shape the future. And that their ideas, your ideas, innovation, and initiatives will benefit the entire world.”

While speaking, Harris pulled the race card which was pretty much to be expected.

“So, it is fitting that we gather here today in this magnificent and historic museum. The shape of this building is inspired by Yoruba art from West Africa. And the metal latticework that you see outside that surrounds the building is inspired by the intricate ironwork crafted by enslaved Americans — in and throughout — in particular, the South, but African Americans who were enslaved in the United States,” she stated.

“The building and many of the collections it holds are intended as a powerful reminder of the brutality of slavery and of the intertwined history between Africa and America, including our ongoing connections,” Harris cringingly recounted. “It is a reminder of the strength and resilience of the African American people and the contributions of African Americans to our country.”

Harris was dragged on Twitter for once again indulging in word salads:
