Jesse Lee Peterson is one of the most prominent Black Republicans in the world. He’s appeared countless times on Fox News, and has close ties with Sean Hannity and other top Republican operatives.
Peterson condemns the Democratic Party, opposes Muslims serving in government, and says that racism does not exist. Instead, he believes that every conflict is a spiritual “battle between good and evil.”
He has spoken out against Kwanzaa and Black History Month. In 2012, Peterson said about black unemployment, “One of the things that I would do is take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation…. They need a good hard education on what it is to work.”
He has called Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela an “evil man” and said that South Africa was better off under apartheid. In 2020 he called then-U.S. President Donald Trump “the Great White Hope. And his opinions on LGBTQ matters are just as horrible. Peterson once said of gay couples and parenting, “These people are not mentally capable of handling the stress of raising children because the situation itself is not normal.”
