Add Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson to the very short list of right-thinking and righteous black Americans — Rev. James Manning, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, former Congressman Allen West, sports analyst & retired basketball player Charles Barkley — who refuse to partake in the public lynching of George Zimmerman.
In this CNN video, Rev. Peterson expressed his extreme displeasure over “race hustlers” like Al Sharpton, and how the media irresponsibly made Martin out to be some kind of “innocent little kid” instead of the truth that Martin was a young thug. Peterson asked why if Martin was “such a good little kid… did they work so hard to keep his history out of the courtroom.” He cited pictures of Martin’s Facebook page featuring him with a gun or marijuana.
Peterson said that people like Sharpton and Obama have injected themselves into this case to “incite the anger of black Americans and others,” adding that they’ve been “using black Americans by dividing the races” and “intimidating white people to get more power.”
Interviewer Piers “I’m-moving-back-to-England” Morgan called Peterson’s comments “quite offensive.”
Yes, Piers. The truth is offensive to those who lie and deceive!
