Charles Ogletree, a personal friend of Barack Obama and a left wing ideologue, recently told a national network audience that race relations are worse than when his grandfather lived.
Bishop E.W. Jackson, a charismatic conservative leader, says in this exclusive video interview that he finds it “ironic” that Ogletree, whom he knows as a Harvard Law classmate, feels so victimized when he is “making a six figure salary.”
Jackson calls it “preposterous” that people living in mansions, driving the best cars and eating the best meals would say race relations are worse now than it was for their grandfather. Calling this a “tragic, false message,” he believes it comes as “a result of a kind of spiritual blindness.”
Jackson, a Marine Corps veteran, was the Republican nominee for Lt. Governor of Virginia in 2013. He currently serves as Founder and President of STAND, and Bishop of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, VA. He is also a Senior Fellow at Family Research Council, where The Daily Caller filmed this interview
Jackson sees America as a gift with possibilities for all.
Yet, too many Americans, in Jackson’s opinion, come to believe “the lie” of indoctrination from those like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. “There have been many totalitarian leaders who have said that if you tell a lie long enough, and you make it big enough, eventually, people will start believing it.”
Dispelling the progressive mantra of “white privilege” that attaches achievement to melanin levels, Jackson calls it “ludicrous” to assume that the “children of black billionaires, black CEOS, our black president, or our black Attorney General are, automatically, in a worse position than the children born in white projects like in Boston.”
Noting the progressive notion that truth, facts and law matter less than manufactured narratives by the cultural elites, Jackson says, “If truth doesn’t matter, then the debate must end at the point of a gun, because might is what makes right. And that’s a very dangerous way for our country to go.”
Jackson sees a double standard when tea party protests are called extreme but looters and rioters are applauded. “If you [cultural elites] like what they stand for, you ignore the fact that they are rioting,” he states.
For Bishop Jackson, who is watching the public fomenting of select racial incidents, sees three sets of victims for manufactured national outrage. Police, who put their lives on the line everyday to make us safe, are the first he names. Next, are black youth, who are being sold a bill of goods. Lastly, the law abiding citizen who sees crime and is fearful of reporting it, as they risk being called a snitch and facing retaliation.
Jackson sees a high cost of the secular liberal policies that have been imposed on the black community, calling it “cancerous and devastating to the black family.”
As for the allegations of rape against comedian Bill Cosby, Jackson explains how Cosby came under vicious attack for his condemnation of black leaders who refused to preach self-responsibility. Jackson said, I “hate to think of him doing such things [rape], but whether he did them or not, they [his adversaries] were going to try to find something.”
“Bill Cosby is falling victim. I just hope he didn’t give them the ammunition.”
As a black pastor who grew up in the ghetto himself, Jackson has met with fellow black pastors in Ferguson, Missouri, who felt exploited by the out-of-towners. Jackson is joining a call for racial reconciliation and healing in America, something he wishes our first black President would have done once during his six years in office.
