Black Group Blasts L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa for Supporting Arizona Boycott

Black Group Blasts L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa for Supporting Arizona Boycott

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND Action, blasted Los AngelesMayor Antonio Villariagosa and City Council members Ed Reyes and Janice Hahn for their motion introduced this past Tuesday calling on the city of Los Angeles to institute a boycott in response to the Arizona immigration law, SB1070.

“Mayor Villaraigosa and City Council members should follow Arizona’s lead and address the Los Angeles illegal immigration crisis which is greatly contributing to the cities financial decline,” said Rev. Peterson b“Illegal immigration is having a negative impact on Los Angeles residents—especially black Americans, who are under siege and have to compete with illegals for basic health and education services.”

A new study by Louisiana State University indicates that Hispanic immigration has caused black workers to be uprooted from low-skill labor markets, which in turn has increased crime in urban areas across the country. The study found that over the last two decades many illegals are moving back and forth across the U.S.-Mexico border less often. The large number of illegal aliens who remain in the U.S. have flooded manufacturing, construction, and agriculture industries, displacing blacks from these jobs.

“It’s apparent that Mayor Villaraigosa and at least seven of the council members care more about the plight of Hispanic illegal aliens in Arizona than they do about the residents of Los Angeles. We will oppose Villaraigosa and any City Council member who tries to get this motion to boycott passed,” Rev. Peterson said.

Actually, cities and states should stay out of other states’ business.

Do black Americans not realize how many jobs hispanics take that blacks previously did?

I never thought I’d see the day where one of these self-important black leaders actually stood up for somethign that actually might benefit the black community. I hope this isn’t just the “broken clock” syndrome.

Yeah, but they’re not a REAL black group — obviously just a bunch of Uncle Toms.

In all seriousness, Rev. Peterson seems to have pretty good conservative credentials.

No; the headline is misleading. It’s not just a “black” group; it’s one led by the very conservative Jesse Lee Peterson (a good guy, IMO).

This makes the whole thing a non-story.

He is not a “self-important black leader”. He is an important AMERICAN leader and rightous conservative.

The AZ. anti-illegal immigration is causing a problem for the democrats. It seems quite a large number of Black Americans support AZ. in their efforts to control illegal immigration

Jesse Lee Peterson is not a self important black leader. He has conservative bonafides going back many years. Plus a good radio show.

That is SO “unliberal” to stay out of others’ business...

2 Thess 3:11-12
11We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is very different from other black leaders. He is a conservative and a great guy. I heard him speak once and was very impressed.

Unfortunately Rev. Peterson and his organization are considered "uncle toms" by most Blacks, who seem to support the illegal immigrants 100% (just as they support abortion, euthanasia, and homosexual "marriage").

Would that this weren't so.

Rev. Peterson isn't the usual "self-important black leader." He is a strong conservative and is (unfortunately) treated like a pariah and a "race traitor" in the Black community.

I don't approach these things as economic but as moral issues. And unfortunately, what you call the "permanent underclass" has chosen to ally itself with every form of moral evil. If this were not the case, you and I might have wound up on different sides of the issue.

Considering the "permanent underclass"'s dedication to "a woman's right to choose," it's hard to believe they won't exterminate themselves eventually.

Mea culpa. I was not familiar with his positions, so I guess this wasn't an earth-shattering response. Quite the opposite, he's one of the few acting in the best interests of his community.
