E.W. Jackson, the Chesapeake minister running on the GOP ticket for lieutenant governor of Virginia, has some extreme views, and he's not afraid to share them.

The latest revelation came during a speech on Wednesday when Jackson claimed that government social programs have done more harm to the African-American community than slavery, Talking Points Memo reported.
"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 a two-parent, monogamous families with the married man and woman raising those children," Jackson said. "It wasn't slavery that did that, it was government that did that. It tried to solve problems that only God can solve and that only we as human beings can solve."
Over the course of the campaign, the public has learned that Jackson doesn't believe in evolution, claimed Planned Parenthood "killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions" and thinks President Barack Obama has a "Muslim perspective."
