E.W. Jackson, the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said on Wednesday that government programs were worse that slavery for black family because they were “trying to solve problems that only God can solve.”

“I am a direct descendant of slaves,” Jackson told a crowd at a Juneteenth event in Newport News. “And I’m telling you that slavery did not destroy the black family, even though it certainly was an attack on the black family. It made it difficult.”
