At a Juneteenth even in Newport News, Va. yesterday, E.W. Jackson, who is running for Lt. Governor had a few things to say about the government, Black families and slavery.

“In 1960, most black children were raised in two-parent, monogamous families. By now, by this time, we have only 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,” Jackson said.

Jackson’s controversial statements have cost him endorsements.  Much of the headlines generated around him have not been connected to policy, but rather what he has said about gays, abortion and the Democratic Party.  Jackson was a surprise winner of the Lt. Governor nomination.  Jackson has never held elected office before but has run for office three times.
