Robert Jeffress is an American Southern Baptist (Evangelical) pastor, author, and radio and television host. He is the Senior Minister of the 14,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas and is a Fox News Contributor. His sermons on the television and radio program Pathway to Victory, are broadcast on more than 1,200 television stations in the United States and 28 other countries, and on 900 radio stations in 195 countries.

Jeffress has made strong statements condemning White Supremacy on the one hand, while on the other hand being a primary progenitor of New Jim Crow theology by his regular statements on Fox News and Twitter concerning matters which oppress people of color and other groups he chooses to marginalize, and support systemic racism. His New Jim Crow rhetoric include his pre-2012 election statement that “The course he [President Obama] is choosing to lead our nation is paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist.” Despite the statements Dr. Jeffress has made against White Supremacy, the vast weight of his statements and the positions he champions make him a key, global progenitor of New Jim Crow Theology today.
