Real Life Uncle Ruckus Says 'Send Blacks Back To Plantation'
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson agrees with Newt Gingrich
That job you're slaving over at McDonalds. The hours you're putting in at the warehouse. Those aren't good enough examples of hard work to black conservative Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, founder of Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND).
No, he thinks that blacks are so far behind when it comes to working hard an doing right, that they all need to be sent back to the plantation.
"One of the things that I would do is take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working," Peterson told The Huffington Post's Black Voices this week. "I'm going to put them all on the plantation. They need a good hard education on what it is to work."
He remarks came after he was asked how he felt about GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich's statements about young black kids needing to get jobs as janitors so they can learn the value of hard work.
Peterson himself worked on a plantation in Alabama before he left for California. Peterson, who has since started the Tea Party of South Central Los Angeles, says that blacks are trapped on the mental plantation of voting for the Democratic party.
"I hope that once [black people] hear the truth, they will pull away from the Democratic Party and their godless leaders," Peterson tells HuffPo. "When you tell them the truth first, they become upset ... They think if you're black and conservative, you're an Uncle Tom. Once you let them yell and scream and carry on -- because they will carry on -- and when they calm down, they understand."
If Peterson's name sounds familiar, he's the guy that once thanked white people for slavery and called the the slave ships a "tough ride to freedom."
