Star Parker: Black Family Life Under Slavery Was “More Healthy Than It Is Today”
Right wing activist Star Parker, appearing with Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins on American Family Radio, made the case for how much better things were for black families under slavery.
She was discussing a pledge signed by presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum written by The Family Leader which “suggested that black children born into slavery were better off in terms of family life than African-American kids born today.” Parker, who recently argued that “too many Blacks do not want to be free,” said that under slavery “black family life, in the vulnerable state that it was, some could say more healthy than it is today,” even though black people were considered property and it was illegal for slaves to marry.
