Rev. Jesse Lee PetersonRev. Jesse Lee Peterson spent his early years in Alabama with his grandparents, plantation workers on the same plantation that their forefathers toiled on as slaves. He still remembers the “whites only” and “coloreds only” signs that separated the races back then. And at a young age, his parents split up and moved away. But he isn’t angry anymore.

Instead of hating whites or America for the circumstances he was born into, Rev. Peterson wants to “unite the races” and “stand up for the greatest country in the world,” he told JBS.org in a telephone interview. “Not one time did I hear my grandparents telling us that we should hate white Americans. They said ‘treat people the way you’d like to be treated, work hard, and you can make it in this country.’”

Rand PaulThe May 18 Republican primary win of ophthalmologist Rand Paul for the Kentucky U.S. senate seat being vacated by Sen. Jim Bunning was viewed by many political commentators as a sign of a rising anti-incumbent wave across America. Dr. Paul, who has never held political office, defeated Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson by about a 59 percent-35 percent margin.

Grayson had the backing of the Republican Party establishment behind him, having been endorsed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, also of Kentucky, and former Vice President Dick Cheney. Dr. Paul, in contrast, is regarded as a favorite of activists in the grassroots Tea Party movement. That movement, which takes it name from the historic 1773 tax protest in Boston Harbor, is considered closely related to citizen activists who supported Dr. Paul’s father, U.S. Rep Ron Paul (R-Texas), in his 2008 bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
