Welfare Has Been Worse Than Slavery

E.W. Jackson Suggests Welfare Has Been Worse Than Slavery

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch, about the conservative Republican: “At a Juneteenth event in Newport News, E.W. Jackson, the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said slavery did not destroy black families, but government welfare programs launched in the 1960s caused them to deteriorate. Speaking before a small crowd Wednesday at King-Lincoln Park, not too far from where the first African slaves entered the Colonies, Jackson referred to his great-grandparents, who were slaves and sharecroppers in Orange County. ‘I am a direct descendent of slaves. My grandfather was born there to a father and a mother who had been slaves. And by the way, their family was more intact than the black family is today,’ Jackson said. ‘I’m telling you that slavery did not destroy the black family, even though it certainly was an attack on the black family. It made it difficult,’ he said.”

The article continues: “Jackson claims that new welfare programs created in the 1960s caused the deterioration of black families.’The program that began to tell women, ‘You don’t need a man in the home, the government will take care of you,’ (and) that began to tell men, ‘You don’t need to be in the home, the government will take care of this woman and will take care of these children,’’ he said.”

More about Mr. Jackson’s comments about black families: “‘In 1960, most black children were raised in two-parent, monogamous families,’ Jackson said.’By now, by this time, we only have 20 percent of black children being raised in two-parent, monogamous families with a married man and woman raising those children. It wasn’t slavery that did that, it was government that did that, trying to solve problems that only God can solve, and that only we as human beings can solve,’ he said.”

  1. Once again another foolish conservative who will say anything to curry favor with white people in order to get elected. This statement is so over the top that it doesn’t require a response. My response is to the poster who continues to post this rubbish as if it is some answer to our condition. These idiots are just that, people who hate their own reality. You have every right to align yourself with whoever you choose,but stop believing these mindless people somehow speak for BLACK PEOPLE, they are on the fringe make no mistake about it.
