Re: Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson Agrees With Newt Gingrich, Says He Would Send Blacks Back 'To The Plantation'

No surprise coming from this contentious rabid Negro. I recall Rev Peterson on the Phil Donahue show back in the 90’s, ranting and railing against black women, stating they were " out of control" (his exact words) and how they are directly responsible for the disintegration of the black family. I have it documented on tape. He could never deny (which I doubt he would) saying it. I do agree that many of these government programs have served to some degree to undermine a culture of work ethic...

"Well white people must have the lowest work ethic because its mostly them sitting up on the Welfare. And please quote me on that." Well, technically, the percentage may be correct. Nationally, 39 percent of welfare recipients are white, 37 percent are black, and 17 percent are Hispanic. I think the argument is because blacks only represent of 13 percent of the general population , yet they are grossly over represented by their numbers for receiving welfare. But I do agree the national...

My last movie was "Bridges of Madison County", back in 1992, I believe it was. It was a time before Clint Eastwood turned into a wrinkled cadaver, was sorta good lookin', and before he started talking to empty chairs, with Meryl Streep also starring. My thing now is two hours of NToons, "Back at the Barnyard", animated talking farm animals with Wanda Sykes as the voice of one of the animals.

I mostly watch PBS networks, home improvement, and some comedy.

Perhaps Mr. Kirsanow could experience a 3 month tryout in one of the cages in the basement of San Quentin prison. Spend a couple months in one of those two man cells where you can hardly move, where you urinate and defecate in front of one another with hardly any room to breathe.

Black people actually learning their own TRUE history , eliminating the housenigger factor, and getting Black people to stop bowing down worshipping the 'Golden Calf' of [Western] Materialism would solve at least 90% of the problems facing the Black race, here in America, and globally . BLACK UNIFICATION would automatically evaporate the remaining 10%.

Hal. Lay. Lu. Yer. The hair. Scientists [well black scientists] have discovered the real usage of the "hair." Those tiny strains of fiber are antennas to feed the brain knowledge and to be able to recognize "intelligence." This ability was snatched away with the onset of patriarchal rule. As why in the eastern hemisphere....the hair is covered. As why when conquerors moved west, the first thing they did was covered the woman's hair with scarfs seen on women from east Europe to south America.
