Black Conservative Suggests Charleston Church Shooting Happened Because White People Can No Longer Express Themselves

Jesse Lee Peterson is known for his extremely conservative views on Black issues. The reverend and frequent Fox News guest can often be heard on his radio show denying the existence of modern-day racism and has even admitted that he does not acknowledge White supremacy. So, it makes perfect sense that Peterson would insinuate that Emanuel AMC shooter and perceived White supremacist Dylann Roof was likely not being racist in his action, but was frustrated that Blacks will no longer allow him to express himself.

Peterson was a guest on Steve Malzberg’s Newsmax TV on Thursday and talked about how racism is over and why Whites speaking up against being called racist will prevent more mass shootings.

He expressed his displeasure with President Barack Obama’s press meeting about the Charleston, South Carolina church.

“(Obama) implied that racism is still an issue in America today for Black people from White folks, when it’s absolutely not true,” Peterson said. “You have the Department of Justice and others calling it a hate crime even before they knew — before the dust settled, they called it a hate crime, which is encouraging or verifying for a lot of angry Black people that racism is a problem.”

He then explained that Roof’s actions were not the result of him hating Black people, but rather, that he could not express his feelings on race.

“The man that killed these people said to them before killing them that Black people have been raping and killing our people or raping our women and killing them, and this is like a payback,” he explained. “I’ve been saying to White Americans for the last 25 years, warning them and warning them that you need to start speaking up instead of holding that anger in, because you could get so angry that you’ll come out fighting in the wrong manner.”

Peterson insisted that White people need to stop allowing themselves to be labeled as racist and confront Black Americans when they are accused.

“White people are feeling fear,” Peterson said. “If they should speak up, they’re called racists, and they are feeling guilt because they feel a sense of responsibility for what’s going on when they really have nothing to do with it.”

Rev. Peterson warns that if Whites don’t release their frustrations soon, there may be more mass shootings such as the one in Charleston.

“I’ve been concerned for a long time that if they don’t open up and express themselves and say, ‘No,’ when they’re called racists, we’re going to see more killing,” he said of distraught Whites. “I want to be wrong, but we are going to see — especially young white men and women — we’re going to see more of them carrying out acts like the one we just saw in South Carolina.”

    Rev. Peterson needs to stop pandering to the conservative agenda and stop representing himself as a representative of Black people, which he is not!

    Urban Uncle Toms like this gentleman are the textbook example of what our African American psychiatrists diagnose as suffering from the long term impact of slavery– a form of PTSD–Post Slavery Traumatic Stress DISORDER–PSTSD. He’s still struggling trying to find a place to be somebody. Forgive him. We accept that there will be a remnant of us who we will have to drag kicking and screaming into Freedom. Ain’t nothing changed..

    Jesse, you are one ignorant-ass buffoon. I really feel sorry for you…You are one mixed-up brainwashed ignorant little man. Some of the crap you say at times, if you were next to me saying that I would probably slap the shi* out of you.
    You really need to STFU!

    I get so sick of our people defending people who have a history of abusing us and doing all kinds of things, yet we are just supposed to be docile and meek. They aren’t that way with us. They attack our children and have teachers in schools who care nothing about us and even determine in kindergarten if our boys are worth teaching. What kind of shit is that. When we stand up for ourselves, we’re resisting arrest. It is straight bull! That dude can go to hell for all I care. He doesn’t speak for me or anyone I know.

    White people express themselves constantly. So much so that I’m ashamed of the color of my skin quite often. Someone blew this guy’s pilot light out. It’s Black people that have no voice. It’s Black people that are rendered mute. If Black people speak up they are called all kinds of nasty things, if not beaten, jailed or shot. I can’t believe that a Black man said something that ridiculous., that white people have no voice. That’s one of the craziest things I’ve ever heard.

    White racist express themselves every day with their crazy lunatic thoughts!! this black DUMMY IS MAKING EXCUSES THEM! HE IS JUST AS CRAZY AS THE WHITE PEOPLE THAT ARE KILLING THEM.

    I’ve seen Jesse Lee Peterson on FAUX NEWS and immediately realized that he had a serious mental problem. It is a condition not unlike typical spouse abuse victims that defend the very evil boyfriend /husband that just beat them and threatened to shoot or cut their throat. Then, perhaps he is just another Right Wing greedy bastard that will do anything for a buck $$$, which explains why he’s often on FAUX NEWS!

    It’s sad that this brother has to sell his soul for whatever reason. There is one explanation: If…You can’t Dazzle ‘Em with your Brilliance Then… Baffle ‘Em with your Bullshit. Brother you have been successful in baffling all of them.

    The Rev. Peterson is a perfect example of a “sell out” and self hating person who hates himself and needs white acceptance. He is being rewarded for making his comments. He will do anything to be accepted by white America. He has lost his soul. But, is he Black? Does he have an american ancestry? I believe he is an immigrant of color who hates Black people and knows that he will receive approval and acceptance by attacking Black people.

    He said there is no racism. He should look at himself. He is a racist. He hates black people because they are black and loves white people because they are white.
