Social Programs Hurt ‘Black Family’ More Than Slavery Argues Virginia Lt. Gov. Nominee
E.W. Jackson, the Virginia GOP nominee for lieutenant governor, made a speech Wednesday claiming that government social programs have been more detrimental to African American families than slavery.
Jackson, a direct descendant of slaves, made his argument at the Juneteenth celebration, a holiday celebrating the end of slavery. He believes that government programs introduced in the 1960’s “encouraging black women to survive without a man while simultaneously telling black men that they would take care of their women and children is where the deterioration began”.
To support his argument, Jackson used “statistics”:
In 1960 most black children were raised in two parent, monogamous families. By now, by this time, we have only twenty percent of black children being raised in a two parent, monogamous families with the married man and woman raising those children,” Jackson said. “It wasn’t slavery that did that, it was government that did that. It tried to solve problems that only god can solve and that only we as human beings can solve.
Jackson has also compared Planned Parenthood to the KKK and openly critized the gay community.
