NEW YORK – A white supremacist accused of the stabbing of a black man killed with a sword on a New York City street told the police that he wanted to purge the Earth of black people.

According to his confession, recorded on video, James Jackson, told investigators after his arrest in the March 20, 2017, stabbing death of Timothy Caughman that black people were “inferior and should be exterminated.”

“I think we should just retain the best people and get rid of all ballast,” Jackson said in the video that is playing at a pro forma hearing in Manhattan on Tuesday. “In my opinion that blacks are inferior people.”

Later in the interview, he added, “I think they should be exterminated,” the New York Post reported.

Jackson, 30, reportedly traveled from Baltimore to New York to kill black men.

Caughman, 66, who was remembered as a gentleman and a good neighbor, and collecting bottles for recycling, when he was attacked from behind with a sword. He staggered, bleeding, in a police station, and later died in a hospital.

After the test of the sword in a trash can, Jackson hours wandering the city with his hands in his coat pockets, gripping two knives, authorities said.

“It was strange. I didn’t feel great. I didn’t feel terrible. I thought it (the stitches) would send me into a blood-rage, fury,” he said on the video.

He is reportedly being stalked as much as 15 people.

“It just seemed like I saw interracial couples everywhere. It was really frustrating me,” he said. “This is the new way and we can’t restore what we had 50 years ago.”

In 2017 jailhouse interview with the Daily News, Jackson said that he intended the bloodshed as “a practice run” in a mission to deter gay relationships.

He said that he would rather have killed “a young thug” or “a successful older black man with blonde hair … people you see in the town. These younger boys that girls on the wrong path.”

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to murder as a hate crime and murder as an act of terrorism.
