black family having fun togetherA conservative black activist agrees with the results of a study that finds white liberals are more likely to "patronize" minorities than conservatives.

The study, conducted by researchers at Yale and Princeton, found that white liberals present themselves as less competent when addressing minorities, while conservatives use the same vocabulary no matter what the race of their audience. The findings debunk the standard talking point of the political left — that white conservatives are racist — and raise questions about whether liberals are the ones perpetuating racial stereotypes about blacks being less competent than whites.

Jesse Lee Peterson, founder and president of the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), says white liberals do patronize blacks.

Peterson

"They're very condescending, he asserts. "The reason for that is that they use black people for their own agenda -- whether it's the radical homosexual agenda, the abortion agenda -- whenever they want to call racism about certain situations. So liberals tend to patronize blacks. White conservatives tend to be up front because they're not trying to use black people for a personal agenda. So this Yale and Princeton research, I absolutely agree with it."

And Peterson believes this study proves there is absolutely a "Democratic plantation."

"That's one of the reasons for patronizing, because they want to keep blacks on that plantation of the Democratic Party," he explains. "They need the votes, so when a black does escape the Democratic plantation, they go after them by calling them names like Uncle Tom, sellout and the N-word.”
