WHAT IS JESSE LEE PETERSON?
One more time for us Slow ones!
Why is it when someone like Rev. Peterson comes out providing critisims of "cuurent Black leaders" he is shunned and ignored?
Will you people not even hear his argument and reasoning? Or are you just going to ignore another brotha because he's critical of the standard. Maybe he has some good points (and even if he did they'd probably go unnoticed). Obviously others agree with his points. Just because you don't does that mean that his points are non-valid?
If we cant even give an ear to community leaders like this Rev. then we are guilty of discrimination and closed mindedness.
Whatever it is; it is not a brother to black people...
Black people are more honest and critical of their own--than anyone else....we just practice the same thing as other groups in this society....we are vilified for it because we are black--and that is just the fact.
If it were white (using the Racist Republican mantra now) it would be called the racist that it is--- by Blacks... "Most Blacks are evil and hateful?"
What has he ever led? Who? When? Where?

And people like Conaleeza Rice and Colin Powell are heavily critisized by our people. Why? Becuase they didn't come up through the "required" way- (some being Congressional Black Caucas, NAACP, association with Jackson or Sharpton)
So why should Rev. Peterson be shunned for offering critisizm of Black leaders? You said it, that we are most critical of our own and Peterson is excercising his right to be critical of his (our) own. Is he not credible to offer critisizm? If not, then who is credible for offering critism of our own? I know it can be frustrating that we all don't see eye to eye sometimes but does that make him "slow" or "confused?"
And Im not a troll so I would appreciate if you refrain from calling me that.
