I cannot understand the Rev. Jesse L. Peterson. Some of the things he says are correct, but he cannot utter a statement without adding some negative words directed toward Black People He looks lie a Black man, but the words about Blacks coming from his mouth are filled with hatred. He states, Blacks this or that. He mostly refers to Blacks as "they." Then he wonders why he received so much criticism from the Black race. As a minister you would he would be attempting to join the races together in love. It's ok to call folks out when they're doing wrong, but this guy never has anything positive to say about Black people and he appears to be just that Black! And...the conservative Whites love to invite him to speak for them. He's been all over the country.

I would like to point out that deeming a person's actions as "immoral" or "wrong" is not "hatred." Maybe using terminology that is too general is to blame, ie: when referring to "black people."

Voice of Reason

I generally agree with most of what Pterson says. Because I'm a racist homophobe? NO, because I believe in the Christian bible. I don't agree with saying that black people would turn the US into a ghetto and like remarks (namely because I'm of mixed race). Those are his opinions. But I do think that most of his quotes are taken out of context, the meanings skewed.

America used to be a very strong moral country. What is happening is a great demoralization. It is becoming more and more accepted to flaunt immorality and sexuality, exposing children to a sexualized lifestyle when they should be worrying about school and generally just being innocent children. I subscribe in "live and let live," but I don't wish for the indecencies of others to be SHOWN OPENLY at every turn to my children. It is not only accepted, but encouraged! It's not just homosexuality or rap culture to blame, but ALL music and TV/movies. It's everywhere! So when a man tries to speak up for morals, he is ridiculed. Morals are quickly becoming oppressed as America becomes more and more like a third-world country. Coincidence?

In the early 20th century, Booker T.Washington had a premonition:
"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose their grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."

Sounds like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, and Louis Farrakhan to me.

Thus opens the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson's book, "SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America".

In light of the recent comments revealed and made by racist Rev. Wright, his supporter Sharpton, and buddy pal Farrakhan; I would say Jesse Lee Peterson is more often right than wrong.

Truth hurts, but it doesn't have to.

J.L.P. should be given an award for being a white professional ass-kisser. He uses the word racist towards people of African descent that disagrees with his brainwashed ideology of what is Right or what is wrong.

He wouldn't know what a true racist is, if one shit down his Christian throat with so-called Jesus patting him on the back and making sure he didn't choke or throw-up!

He reminds me of one of slave-master's faithful well trained obedient dogs. A dog that has been trained to attack, hunt, fetch, roll-over, sit-up, lay down, bark or shut-up, I think you get the picture. The only reward dogs like that receive is a pat on the head, a kick in the ass, a bone or scraps from master's table.

For the record I have no political or religious affiliation and a proud AGNOSTIC!

God bless reverend Jesse Lee Peterson!

For All

Satin really is getting what he wants. Look at all the people in America, Fighting each other,killing each other. It does not matter what race we are or our belief, We should stand up for America and what it stands for. If America falls, satin wins and we don't. Just look at the past 50 years and how strong America was, now look at it today and how week we have become. What changed? We did. What to do about it?
We need to stand up for each other, Stand up for AMERICA, and become a strong nation once more.

"We have enough Black-on-Black hate taking place."

You are right. And for one black person to condemn another because of who they love is disgusting. You and these so-called "men of god" are the ones spouting the hatred, not Jasmyne.

Jasmyne: keep up the good work.

Thank you Jasmyne for your information on individuals like Mr. Peterson. It is somewhat unsettling that this man is given a national spotlight to voice true ignorance all in the name of the lord - as usual. Your writings encourage me to hold fast to what I know to be true for myself

We have enough Black-on-Black hate taking place. The last thing we need is a pro gay--blasphemism does our race no good--Eve minded female trying to set us straight.

If your opinions and minds were of such dramatic importance, the Blackmen wouldn't have been systematically replaced in the workplaces with conformist, submissive, "field-slut" type women.

Sure, we have a few revolutionary minded B;ackwomen out there, but they never pass views and distrust from Blacks, to Blacks.

If Rev. Peterson is so anti-fag, so was Christ Jesus, Thee Almighty, even! They were both anti-homosexuality; not anti-homosexual, for they believed we all could be "healed."
