For the fifth straight year, WND Books author the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson will host the “National Day of Repudiation of Jesse Jackson” event in Los Angeles.
The event will take place outside Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH office at 10 a.m. Pacific time on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 19.
“Over the past 40 years, Jesse Jackson has turned Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream into a nightmare. Dr. King believed in equality for all based on moral character. Jackson lacks character, and his nightmare has been to divide the races by using race as a badge of entitlement,” said Peterson, known as “the other Jesse.”
According to a statement from Peterson’s organization, the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny, speakers for this year’s event will include WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie, columnist and activist Ron Jackson, Candice Jackson of Judicial Watch, talk-show host and WND columnist Jane Chastain, talk-show host Geoff Metcalf and Peterson.
“We believe our efforts have exposed Jackson’s arrogance and exploitation of the poor. As a result, he no longer has the same control over the minds of most black Americans,” said Peterson.
In Peterson’s recent book, “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” he shows how the civil-rights establishment, led by Jackson, 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.
