A lot has been made of Jesse Jackson’s comment last week in which he used the “N” word when he thought his mike was turned off.
At last, the real Jesse Jackson has surfaced. He has made a living by extorting money from giant corporations, he would contact these companies and if they didn’t contribute to his foundation, he would bring forth charges of racism, either real or imagined.
He has made a living by keeping fellow African-Americans down, by playing the victim card, he has kept racism alive and well in America and around the world.
In my opinion, it is despicable that someone would talk about a presidential candidate or anyone that way. What happened to respect of the office of the Presidency?
I was always taught to respect the office, no matter what I thought of the president or a candidate for president. Guess I didn’t grow up in the same environment as he did.
If anyone besides Jesse would have made a comment like that, the secret service would have, rightfully so, been all over it, and an investigation launched.
I am far from being a fan of Obama, however, actions such as Jesse Jackson’s are despicable!
Wasn’t it Jesse who called for the firing of Imus? Didn’t he make a big uproar about it! What happened to his sense of righteousness? And what about Jimmy the Greek and the comment he made, or Rush Limbaugh, who was just making an observation about a black athlete?
Now some in the black community are trying to justify it by saying it is O.K. for a black to say the word, but not OK for someone of a different race. I’m sorry but it isn’t acceptable for anyone to utter that word.
I thought the whole idea of equality was to make everything equal, not have separate rules for “privileged people”.
Have we come to a place where we can’t criticize someone if they are a certain race, creed or national origin.
What is that all about, are they above reproach?
