A melanated conservative activist fears the United States will turn into an extension of South Africa if there is no pushback against the implementation of reparations.
By an 8-1 vote, the city council of Evanston, Illinois recently approved paying reparations to qualified black residents who reportedly suffered from practices of racial discrimination stemming from slavery and an era of segregation. The decision was hailed by a radical group known as the National African American Reparations Commission, and the motion passed despite a Reuters/Ipsos poll from June of 2020 that found that only 1 in 5 Americans supports reparations.
"What is happening is that government is now being controlled by a bunch of radical, far-left, evil black men and black women," responds Jesse Lee Peterson, founder and president of the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND). "They know that the white people are afraid to speak up. I've been saying for a long time that if white Americans don't speak up, we're going to have South Africa in America."
As he points out, things are really bad for whites in that part of the world.
"It's so bad now, they're taking the land away from white people without compensation," Peterson reports. "That's an unfair, wrong thing to do to the folks. It's not equal. It's not right. It's evil because you have the people in there now who pass these laws, and they're handicapping white people when people cannot fight back."
At some point, he says, people have to put their feet on solid ground, stand up, speak up, and "vote these people out."
