Jesse Jackson Calls Britain ‘Mother of Racism’

April 7, 2021

In an interview with Times Radio, reverend and race huckster Jesse Jackson dismissed the results of a British study on diversity and smeared the country as the “mother of racism.”

A study by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities, created by Boris Johnson in response to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests, found that though there was a “reluctance to acknowledge that the UK had become open and fairer,” Britain was not “deliberately rigged against ethnic minorities.”

Jackson took issue with this conclusion, naturally, calling Britain the “mother of racism” and declaring falsely that the country “has a certain responsibility to face up to racism and change it.” The British Empire’s role in the slave trade, Jackson said, means the U.K. “owns racism and people know it.”

Jackson did not acknowledge that Britain’s most significant role in the slave trade was to end it, being the first European country to do so, abolishing slavery in 1807. That rather crucial bit of information doesn’t suit Jackson’s racial extortion agenda, however.
