A new lawsuit claims a race war is brewing and America's black leaders are to blame.

A former federal prosecutor is singling out President Obama, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Eric Holder, and the founders of Black Lives Matter, including local activist DeRay McKesson.

Larry Klayman accuses them of aiding and abetting murder, promoting terrorism, gang activity and civil rights violations against police. The 52-page complain says in part,

"the defendants have publicly incited people to violence with the fiction that police officers and other law enforcement are intentionally and systematically targeting and hunting blacks and other minorities to kill them for no reason other than racism or sport."

The federal class action lawsuit was filed Saturday by Klayman on behalf of himself, all US police officers, Jews and Caucasians. It seeks more than $2 billion in damages. It claims members of the lawsuit suffered economic hardships, pain, suffering and severe emotional stress, among other things.

Klayman filed the lawsuit in Dallas and is encouraging police officers there to join him.

President Obama will lead a town hall discussion about race relations in the country Thursday evening. The town hall will air on ABC2 at 8 p.m. World News Tonight anchor David Muir is the moderator.
