While increasing numbers of Americans have come to regard Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and other establishment “black leaders” as con artists, gaining money and power by promoting racial tension and class warfare, never before has a book ripped the “scam” wide open like the latest offering from WND Books.

In “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson – a true black leader whom many affectionately call “the other Jesse” – shows how the civil rights establishment has made a lucrative career out of keeping racial strife alive in America.

He reveals how establishment black leaders endlessly promise solutions to the problems of America’s inner cities, but deliver only ineffective Band-Aids. From the dismal failure of the welfare system, to the farce of the slavery-reparations movement, to the problems within black churches and the hypocrisy and corruption of current black “leaders,” Peterson argues compellingly that the real crisis we face is spiritual, and that no economic solution will suffice. He skillfully weaves the realms of politics, culture, psychology and religion into this profound and relevant book.

Rather than promote perpetual victimhood, Peterson offers a platform of true empowerment, teaching individuals and families how to tap into the power within, rather than depending on handouts.


Jesse Peterson

Peterson is a successful entrepreneur, motivational speaker, author, and founder/president of a highly successful counseling organization, the Los Angeles-based Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny or B.O.N.D. — whose purpose is “rebuilding the family by rebuilding the man.”

Featured on many news programs, including CNN, Fox News, World News Tonight With Peter Jennings, and Nightline with Ted Koppel, Peterson also hosts his own live call-in radio talk show in Los Angeles, and the “Jesse Peterson Show” on MediaOne television in South Central Los Angeles.

Well-known for his public criticism of “black leaders,” Peterson considers Jesse Jackson a “racist demagogue, a David Duke in black skin.” In fact, for the past four years, “the other Jesse” has held an annual event called the “National Day of repudiation of Jesse Jackson.”

“We will hold this event every year until Jesse Jackson repents of his ways, and stops attempting to tear the races apart for his own personal gain,” said Peterson. “Dr. King is turning over in his grave seeing what his movement has become, thanks to people like Jesse Jackson.”

Unlike the limousine-riding establishment “black leaders,” Peterson is the product of a fascinating life experience and longtime grass-roots community work on the streets of riot-torn south-central Los Angeles.

“The exact opposite of the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, Jesse Peterson is a truly authentic ‘black leader,'” said WND Vice President David Kupelian. “An eloquent and principled defender of traditional values, Jesse is also one of America’s best counselors. He has the kind of genuine, street-smart authenticity and inner strength that it takes to be able to grab a hardened gang-banger by the scruff of the neck, talk to him, shake him up, and make him look at himself and turn his life around.”
