Most blacks have lost the moral authority to claim the mantle of civil rights because they refuse to stand for what is right.

As an example, the 50th anniversary commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic march and speech looked like a Ku Klux Klan rally!

Al Sharpton, Oprah Winfrey, Jamie Foxx and others whined about the need for “justice” for blacks while continuing to pervert the civil rights struggle by equating it to current efforts to legalize same-sex marriage, pass amnesty for illegal aliens and degrade the Second Amendment.

But these malcontents were simply the opening act for Barack Obama – or, as I refer to him, the “Fallen Messiah.”

In his address, Obama, flanked by members of the King family, shamelessly said, “We would dishonor the memory of Dr. King and other heroes to suggest that the work of this nation is complete …” He then attacked Republicans who want to preserve voter integrity at the polls. Obama said we have to fight back against those who want to “erect new barriers to the vote …”

Obama also cited how black unemployment has remained twice as high as white unemployment and that the gap in wealth between the races has grown. He left out that things are far worse since he’s become president! He called for a minimum wage increase and for higher taxes on the wealthy. It was clear that Obama’s address was not about acknowledging the great strides America has made. His speech was about using the platform to sew dissatisfaction and help usher in his socialist ideas.

There were no black or white Republican speakers. As if the Civil Rights Act of 1964 could have been passed without the GOP! This was not a commemoration of the spirit of MLK’s march. It was an outright attempt to rewrite history – and use King’s name to advance an anti-American political agenda.

Obama and the false civil rights leaders won’t address the horrific black-on-black murder rate, 70 percent black out-of-wedlock birthrate, 1,500 black babies aborted daily and 50 percent black dropout rates. In Chicago, Obama’s hometown, there were more than 500 black-on-black murders in 2012! Last month alone there were 53 homicides and 224 people shot.

Since the acquittal of George Zimmerman, there has been an outbreak of black-on-white violence across the country and we’ve been reporting this on my national show (“The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show”). The march was commemorating Dr. King’s legacy of nonviolence, and you’d think that at least one person would have brought this up – but nope – not a peep!

Recent examples of black-on-white violence include the senseless shooting and murder of Christopher Lane, a student and baseball player gunned down by three black teens in Oklahoma; the robbery and beating death of World War II veteran, 88-year-old Delbert Belton in North Spokane, Wash.; and the case of 62-year-old Jeffrey Babbitt, a white New York City man who was attacked solely because of his race. The suspect had said he would punch the next white person that walked by, and he struck Mr. Babbitt, leaving him in a coma. The victim later died.

These are just a few of the many cases of black-on-white attacks that are not getting the type of attention they deserve. If these attacks had been white on black, it would be called racism. We need to start labeling these black attacks for what they really are: black racism! But because the perpetrators are black and the victims white, these crimes are virtually ignored, even by most whites.

As a result of turning their lives over to liberal black leaders and allowing the government to be the daddy of the black family, blacks today are worse off than they were during slavery. Blacks have been unshackled from physical chains, but they are mentally enslaved by their own hatred.

The black nuclear family is practically nonexistent. Most black men aren’t worth a dime, and the black women are having children out-of-wedlock like “90 going north.” Blacks today are not suffering due to white racism. They’re suffering because of moral poverty.

As a result of the absence and weakness of black men, blacks have allowed every ungodly thing to influence their communities. We literally see hell on earth in places like Detroit, Newark, Chicago and New Orleans.

The negative attitude most blacks hold is antithetical to the Christian message of love and forgiveness delivered by MLK. Yes, blacks have indeed lost the moral authority to claim the mantle of civil rights because they refuse to stand for what is right. The 90 percent of blacks who helped elect Obama have little in common with MLK.

We now have a full-fledged racist, socialist president in the White House. Obama is no different than Jeremiah Wright Jr., Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton – he’s just more polished and better at hiding who he is.

Throughout American history, whites have played a significant role in helping blacks secure freedom and equality. We can no longer relinquish the civil rights mantle to liberal racist blacks. It’s time to take back our country and confront black racism head on, but it will take both whites and freethinking blacks, standing together once again, to get it done.
