African American Declares War on Congressional Black Caucus

"I am an American who happens to be black and I am proud to call myself part of the tea party movement. Mr. President, the government is not God and you are not the Messiah."

-- From "Hampton Roads tea party rally aims at Obama and health care" by Kimball Payne, Daily Press (Virginia) 4/16/10

In Norfolk, partisan hopefuls shook hands and passed out bumper stickers as speakers kept the crowd entertained for hours under sunny skies. Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr. of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake said it was time to throw the health care law "in the harbor." Jackson bristled at the idea that the tea party has racist undertones.

From "Black Minister Forms Political Action Committee (STAND America PAC) to Defeat Liberal Congressional Black Caucus and Break 'Death Grip' of Democrat Party on Black Community" posted at Christian Newswire 4/21/10

Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., retired attorney and Harvard Law graduate, is declaring political war on the Democrat Party and the liberal Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). Bishop Jackson, having fought for pro-life and pro-family causes for 25 years, has entered fully into the political arena by forming a political action committee. The top priority of STAND AMERICA PAC, formed on April 1, 2010, is to recruit and support conservative black candidates to run against liberals in Congressional Black Caucus districts.

Says Bishop Jackson, "The black community has been deceived into voting for liberal black leadership which does not reflect their values." Jackson's strategy is to have black voters register as independents and vote their Christian values. He argues that the black voter is a conservative church going person.

According to Bishop Jackson, CBC members insult the black community by "conflating the black struggle for civil rights with the demands of radical homosexuals for marriage and other special rights." He calls it "one of the most preposterous frauds ever perpetrated on a people."

Bishop Jackson says the time has ended when getting elected to Congress in the black community requires no more than being a Democrat and play the race card.
