Today’s black leaders ‘worse than KKK, skinheads combined’

The decline of the black family started with Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society.

Then the race baiter twins Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton and now Barack Obama are finishing the demise of the black families.

We may ‘continue to be divided for another 50 years’


Rioting in Baltimore in response to the death of Freddie Gray

Baltimore is in crisis. Violent crime is surging. Police are afraid to chase crooks, because they fear for their jobs. And State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who filed charges against six officers in the death of Freddie Gray, is partying with pop stars even as her case falls apart.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson calls it nothing less than a “betrayal” of the civil-rights movement and says the situation in Baltimore illustrates how African-Americans are worse off than they were 50 years ago.

And he’s not hesitant to pin the blame.

“Modern-day civil-rights leaders are the worst enemy of black Americans,” he charged. “These black ‘leaders’ are worse than the Ku Klux Klan and skinheads combined.”

More than 50 people have been shot in Baltimore since the city was gripped by riots and disorder following the death of Freddie Gray. Homicides are up from last year after last weekend’s wave of shootings. There are even safety concerns for the upcoming Preakness horse race in Baltimore Saturday.

And Mosby may be jeopardizing her case against the police officers by her political grandstanding, legal tactics and appearance with pop star Prince on stage during a tribute concert to Freddie Gray.

Some of the violence in the Baltimore area even has taken on racial overtones, notably in the case of an elderly white man savagely attacked by a mob of black youths. But most of the victims of crime and political incompetence in Baltimore are African-Americans.

Peterson, author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” pins the blame for the Baltimore disaster firmly on those “civil rights leaders.”

He said the KKK comparison comes to mind, “because these people have deceived black Americans and enslaved them to programs.”

“They’ve also made them dependent on false leaders.”

Peterson believes the situation in Baltimore is an outgrowth of the culture of grievance adopted by too many African-Americans. He even charges that African-Americans are worse off now than they were before the civil rights movement.

“Blacks are less independent. The black family unit, for the most part, has been destroyed. Blacks today are more dependent on government programs and handouts,” he said.

Peterson also believes whites are enabling black dysfunction by refusing to tell the truth about race.

“If whites are not willing to be honest about race and blacks don’t drop their anger and stop blaming whites, we will continue to be divided for another 50 years,” he said.

Lawyer, talk-radio host and author of “Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives … Eight Hours,” Larry Elder sees the collapse of the black family as the root cause for feelings of disenfranchisement and dissatisfaction among African-Americans.

In an interview with WND, Elder observed that in 1965, 25 percent of black children were born out of wedlock, while today the figure is more than 70 percent.

“Even Obama said a kid growing up without a father is five times more likely to be poor, nine times more likely to drop out, 20 times more likely to end up in jail,” said Elder.

Elder points to decades of failed federal policy as one cause of rise in single-parent families.

“Lyndon Baines Johnson’s ‘war on poverty’ in the mid-60s and the explosion of single-parent families corresponds with the growth of federal spending on ‘anti-poverty’ programs,” he noted. “According to the Heritage Foundation, we’ve spent over $22 trillion – and poverty has flatlined.”

More ominously, Elder warned the same problems are now taking root among white Americans.

“Whites, too, have seen an explosion in out-of-wedlock births. In 1965, 3.1 percent of whites were born to a single parent. Now the number is over 25 percent. If anything, the rate of growth of white out-of-wedlock births is far more rapid that the black rate.”

Peterson also sees the “lack of love” and the “absence of good fathers” as two of the leading problems the black family faces today. Yet as Jack Cashill notes, the lack of fathers in the African-American community isn’t just an economic or social disadvantage for blacks but a powerful contributor to a culture of grievance.

Cashill, author of “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,” told WND that Jesse Lee Peterson “has made the powerful case that the root cause is the anger generated by growing up without fathers and sometimes without mothers.”

“For a half century, black leadership has channeled that flood of anger into a hatred of the white man and ‘white’ institutions. Yes, white families are also falling apart, but the resulting anger is much more diffuse, much less focused,” he said. “So the young people in question do not instinctively hate those who would help them.”

Cashill said the collapse of the black family is the inevitable result of liberal social policy. He identifies mistaken incentives provided by the government that have the effect of directly encouraging the father to leave the home.

“At the same time these destructive policies were implemented,” Cashill said, “liberal thought leaders were working on a number of fronts to diminish the value of family.

“A charismatic black Democrat political leader could have addressed this issue on both the policy and philosophy fronts. Obama’s refusal to do so stands as the greatest failure of his administration.”

In contrast to trying to help blacks with what Elder calls the “race card,” the “sage of South Central,” as he is known, says the best thing the federal government can do is get out of the way.

When asked how to repair the black family and cities like Baltimore, Elder responded quickly: “End welfare at the federal level. Allow the needs of the needy to be handled at the state level, ideally by nonprofits and community involvement. Leaders, like Obama, should keep the race card in their pocket rather than whipping it out over every new controversy.

“In cases like the encounter between professor Henry Gates and a Cambridge cop, Trayvon Martin, Ferguson, and now Baltimore, where we still don’t know how Freddie Gray died, Obama used each as an opportunity to discuss ‘root causes,’ which is code for spend more money. Of course, Baltimore schools are some of the best funded schools in the nation, spending almost $16,000 per year, per student, yet still have a high dropout rate and most graduates unable to read, write and compute at their grade level.”

Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” believes the country would have been better served by listening to the findings of the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y., who famously warned of the collapse of the black family in his 1965 report, “The Negro Family: The Case for National Action.”

Flaherty told WND: “Moynihan was a pioneer in his revolutionary observations that the black family was in shambles, getting worse, and everything the government did was probably creating and increasing the problem. Thus the ‘benign neglect’ recommendation. He was right about that.”

But Flaherty also believes the treatment of Moynihan paved the way for the national refusal to discuss race, leading to a permanent culture of grievance and conflict playing out in cities like Baltimore.

“Fifty years later, we must also acknowledge he was among the first targets of the politically correct crowd,” he said. “And everything they tried on him, they perfected over the remaining 49 years since. They would not engage him, just vilify. They did not refute, just scorn. They said he was ‘blaming the victim,’ by pointing out dangerously high levels of black pathology and black family disintegration. Any leader who could deliver us back to the days when Moynihan’s predictions were just about to hit the inflection point would be a national hero.”

Peterson agrees.

“If blacks and the country at large had listened to Moynihan, instead of attacking him as a ‘racist,’ black families would still be intact, and they would be better off across the board. The country would be united based on truth, rather than divided by lies.”

He remains pessimistic about the situation of blacks in America.

“I cannot think of any notable positive developments taking place at this time,” he said.

Regarding the disintegration of public order in Baltimore, Peterson said nothing will change unless blacks stop trying to blame everyone else for their community’s problems.

“Blacks need to get over their ‘blackness’ and become Americans rather than ‘African-Americans,’” he said. “They must overcome their false sense of victimhood and stop blaming whites. They need to stop relying on the government and leaders so they can become independent and think for themselves.”



Black fatherless homes, left creating cop killers

This is from World Net Daily.

All of this started with Lyndon Baines Johnson’s Great Society.

When the Great Society passed Johnson had this to say “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” 


Exclusive: Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson urges end to ‘anti-authority mindset’

Fatherless homes – combined with the left’s policies and attacks on free speech – are creating thugs and cop killers.

The murder of 23-year-old Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago and the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner, who died while resisting arrest by NYPD officers, have put the national spotlight on police and black relations.

The cop killer’s wife inflamed the situation by saying that her black thug husband – who was shot and killed after executing officer Santiago – should have shot more cops. News 12 New Jersey reporter Sean Bergin explained on camera the decision to air her comments:

“It’s important to shine a light on this anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America’s inner cities. … The underlying cause of all this of course? Young black men growing up without fathers. …” The reporter was suspended from his job, and subsequently quit.

Progressives of all colors have intimidated most white Americans with the “R” word (racist), and now whites rarely comment on black criminality. These same progressives are perpetuating the fatherlessness and anti-police attitude that is wreaking havoc on America’s inner cities.

Many blacks today have a serious issue with authority figures. This problem starts in the home and manifests itself as early as preschool.

A Department of Education study found that blacks make up 18 percent of all preschool children, but they account for 42 percent of suspensions.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan blamed the problem on “racial disparities,” and was “stunned that we were suspending and expelling 4 years olds.” Duncan is more “stunned” by the disciplinary action of the schools than he is by the rotten behavior of the kids. No surprise. Rotten kids are anti-authority – so are progressives.

Attorney General Eric Holder said a “zero-tolerance” approach eventually leads many students into the criminal justice system and promised to end the “school-to-prison pipeline.” In other words, according to Holder, disciplining bad kids is creating a path to prison! This is progressive “wisdom.”

Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus and other leftist black “leaders” have been excusing black criminals and stoking hatred toward police for decades.

The 1992 Los Angeles riots, sparked by the police beating of Rodney King, resulted in the deaths of 60 people. But Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., didn’t call it a riot; she called it a “rebellion.”

The rap music industry has long promoted violence toward cops. The most notorious perpetrators include: N.W.A. (Niggaz with Attitudes) with their “F— tha Police” lyrics, rapper ICE-T’s “Cop Killer” album, and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “187″ (about murdering cops). Video games like “Grand Theft Auto” also reinforce anti-police attitudes.

Progressive mayors are allowing thugs and cop haters to flourish in our cities.

Leftist NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio ended previous Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s successful “stop, question, and frisk” program after complaints that it unfairly targeted minorities, and now violent crime has skyrocketed.

According to CompStat figures, 129 people were shot last month – a 43 percent increase over the same period last year.

In “Chicagoland,” progressive policies and fatherlessness have created “killing fields.” The recent Independence Day massacre, where 82 shootings resulted in 15 people killed, doesn’t help the city’s image.

Instead of aggressively going after Chicago’s gangs, Obama former Chief of Staff and now Mayor Rahm Emanuel is focused on the guns, even though Chicago has some of the nation’s toughest gun-control laws.

Progressives have created an environment that rewards irresponsibility and dependency. Sending welfare payments to single women with children has resulted in the decline of black marriages. Today, 73 percent of black kids are born out of wedlock.

Since most black fathers are not around, these children never develop respect for authority. In fact, they grow to hate the impatience and pressure their mothers put on them.

Recently I interviewed Paul Raeburn, author of “Do Fathers Matter?” Here are just a few of his findings:

  • When fathers are absent during mother’s pregnancy, the baby is more likely to be born prematurely. The baby is four times as likely to die in the first year.
  •  If the man is depressed, the child is eight times as likely to have behavior problems and 36 times as likely to have difficulty getting along with peers.
  •  Kids with dads around are less likely to become “bullies”: Oxford researchers said when fathers were absent, children had higher rates of aggressive behavior.

Obviously the missing link to end the cycle of violence and the anti-police attitude in the black community is to rebuild black families. Progressive policies of providing financial incentives for single mothers who have kids out of wedlock must end.

Progressives also bully people into not speaking truth about moral cause and effect. They’re not just immoral – they are “anti-moral.”

Yet, Americans – especially white Americans – have to start speaking out about the anti-authority mindset destroying our inner cities. If whites and blacks allow the lawlessness to continue, the chaos and anti-cop violence will spread everywhere. And when police are not safe – no one is safe.
