Black People Need to be 'Honest, Law-Abiding,' Says Ted Nugent (Audio)

National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent made headlines recently when he called Trayvon Martin a "racist gangsta."

The former rock star lectured all black Americans on Tuesday during an appearance on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' radio show (audio below), noted MediaMatters.org.

"There are black mobs across America that are guilty of the worst racism since the Klan," Nugent said. "The worst racism against blacks is documented and undeniable by blacks ... The blacks have bought into this lie that somehow they're oppressed when the president is black, the attorney general is black, governors are black, senators are black, congressmen are black, mayors are black, Oprah Winfrey, the richest people in the world are black. It is a dirty lie."

Nugent then urged black people to be "honest" and "law-abiding."

"[Black people] could fix the black problem if they just admit they can do anything that I can do, anything that Alex Jones can do, anything that any American can do, if you put your heart and soul into being honest, law-abiding, [and] delivering excellence at every move in your life," Nugent said.

Nugent also said that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Black Panthers, Eric Holder and President Barack Obama were "enslaving" black people and added "the real shackles on black America, 100 percent of the time come from black America."

However, Nugent failed to back up his statement with any actual evidence of enslavement by the men that he mentioned.

Nugent also rewrote history by claiming: "Racism against blacks was gone by the time I started touring the nation in the late '60s."
