The Herland Report TV (HTV): Hanne Nabintu Herland speaks to bishop Harry Jackson about forgiveness, hatred, racism and redemption.
“My father experienced gross racism, yet he said that I shouldn’t judge people by their skin colour. This was even before Dr. Kings statements became so famous,” says Bishop Harry Jackson, a leading American social conservative activist, commentator, author and famous lecturer who passed away little more than a year ago.
He holds an MBA from Harvard Business School. Jackson is a regular guest in the leading US media outlets, such as CBS, CBN and has been featured in articles in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Washington Times etc. Bishop Jackson currently resides as the Bishop of International Communion of Evangelical Churches.
This is the second program with Dr. Jackson, watch the first here.
On racism, Dr. Johnson says: “My father’s story has really coloured my experience in America. When I was one year old, my dad was a senior at Florida ANM University. He was involved in the voter registration during the older days. When blacks really didn’t have free access to vote. There was great discrimination.”
“I will never forget me being 12 years old sitting down with my dad in the kitchen of our home in Avondale, Cincinnati.”

“He began to tell me that he felt that racism was an emotional and mental disease and he said some of the people who helped me most in my life have been white and some of the most who have done the most reprehensible things to us as a family and to me personally, have been black.”
“He said that I shouldn’t judge people by their skin colour. This was before Dr. Kings statements became so famous. This is a credo that my dad lived by and so he sent us to a private school that cost thousands of dollars.”
“My father gave this long speech about destiny, anti-racism and the need and power for education. In my own life, many of the people that helped me, when I was one of the first blacks to go to a private school in America, were Jewish people. In that school they helped me.”
“These Jewish boys were the first ones to help me. I was the first black kid there, I had older kids beat me up, called me the N-word etc. But, the Jewish kids took me in. Many of them were very wealthy and I found that the Jewish kids had become wealthy because of the tradition of training.”
