Jackson Says Government Hurt Black Families More Than Slavery

Virginia Lt. Gov candidate E.W. Jackson (R) said that Americans "should remember" the country's history of slavery, but "not wallow in it," the Hampton Roads Daily Press reports.

He stressed that it was "not slavery that eroded the black family but government policies in the 1960s."

Said Jackson: "In 1960 most black children were raised in two parent monogamous families. By now, by this time, we only have 20 percent of black children being raised in two parent monogamous families with a married man and woman raising those children. It wasn't slavery that did that. It was government that did that trying to solve problems that only God can solve, and that only we as human beings can solve."
