"An outspoken black conservative says he is offended by black liberals who suggest there is a separate agenda for black Americans.
The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, the founder of a group that "rebuilds the family by rebuilding the man," has emerged as a national spokesman on
conservative issues; and he is blasting a recent gathering of black liberals who presumed to "define the African-American agenda."
"There is no separate 'African American' agenda," Peterson insists. "The agenda for black Americans is the same as the one for whites and other
Americans: Love of God, country, and family; lower taxes, a good education, and a good environment to raise a family."
Peterson believes that things are looking up for black Americans: "They're getting married and taking more personal responsibility for their own
lives," he told C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" on Saturday.
"They are beginning to question the established liberal black leaders," who have "kept most of them angry at the white man and addicted to
Peterson said more black Americans are rejecting the "evil Democratic platform," including "abortion on demand and homosexual marriage."
At a "State of the Black Union" symposium in Georgia on Saturday (televised live on C-SPAN), liberals such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Louis
Farrakhan were asked to consider a "contract with black America," which could be used to set politicians straight on what issues they must support
if they want to win the liberal black vote.
Symposium moderator Tavis Smiley raised the idea: "The next time you [politicians] come calling on our vote, you come correct on the contract or you
don't come at all,'' the PBS talk show host said.
President Bush, in a July 2004 speech to the National Urban League, suggested that Democrats are taking the black vote for granted, and the idea of a
"contract with black America" suggests that liberals may see some truth in that.
But that doesn't mean black liberals are finding common ground with President Bush. On the contrary, some of the speakers at Saturday's symposium
criticized black pastors who recently met with Bush at the White House.
The Rev. Eddie Long, an Atlanta pastor, was asked about being a closet Republican. Long replied that "just because we went to the house [White House]
doesn't mean we had intercourse." The remark was met by cheers, press reports said.
Peterson indicated that he was particularly offended by the closing remarks of Michael Eric Dyson, a University of Pennsylvania professor, who ---
according to Peterson -- "went on an unstoppable tirade about being proud of his 'Niggerdom.'"
According to Peterson, Dyron screamed, "I'm a victim of Democracy!" and "I embrace my Niggerdom -- I'm a Nigga! I'm a Nigga! And all you Niggas
out there get down with me." According to Peterson, Dyson received a standing ovation from the audience.
"It's time-out for Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and Al Sharpton," Peterson said in a press release. "Most blacks," he said -- not all, he
stressed -- "are suffering, not because of racism but because of a lack of moral values."
By pushing non-existent "racisim" the liberal leftist seek to keep all African-Americans" salves on "their" plantation of control. Conservative
american "blacks" are beginning to see the "chains" and reject the slaveowners called the DNC and NAACP. Its about time
