Peterson explained his plan to The Huffington Post’s Black Voices, saying, “one of the things that I would do is take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working. I’m going to put them all on the plantation. They need a good hard education on what it is to work.”

He made the comments when asked to comment on Gingrich’s back and forth with Fox News correspondent Juan Williams, who questioned Gingrich about what he called potentially insulting comments about the poor and minorities during a Republican presidential debate Monday in South Carolina.

Peterson told Black Voices Newt is absolutely right. Check out the rest of the story at theGrio.
