Jesse Lee Peterson and Emmett Till

Jesse Lee Peterson and Emmett Till March 7, 2018

Jesse Lee (Uncle Tom) Peterson, the ignorant misogynist who bizarrely thinks that racism does not exist, attacked Oprah Winfrey over, of all things, the murder of Emmett Till more than 60 years ago. He was mad that she compared his murder to that of Trayvon Martin.

After George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the self-defense killing of the 17-year-old thug, Oprah called Trayvon Martin the “same thing” as Emmett Till, a 14-year-old black boy mutilated and killed in 1955 for allegedly flirting with a white woman. Till’s purported killers were also acquitted. So this deceiving woman helped feed blacks the lie that blacks suffer from “racism” and injustice today, when black-on-white crime and hostility is far more rampant.

Wait, what? He’s actually saying that she should not have brought up Emmett Till because his “purported killers” were acquitted? But that only proves the point. They aren’t “purported killers,” they later admitted to having killed him. They were acquitted by an all-white jury despite overwhelming evidence against them and later admitted that they did it. They were never punished for it, because killing black people at the time in Mississippi was, for all practical purposes, simply not considered a crime.

That Peterson, a black man, would make such arguments just shows how utterly deranged the man is. He is every caricature of the black man who wants to be friends with the most racist white people. He’s Uncle Tom, Uncle Ruckus, name the character. And he hates women with a passion so bitter it could eat through iron.
