Jesse Jackson: What A Nut

And what will happen to the professional race baiter for his comments that he'd like to cut off Obama's "nuts?" Most likely nothing. From CNN:

The Rev. Jesse Jackson apologized Wednesday for "crude and hurtful" remarks he made about Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama after an interview with a Fox News correspondent.

The remarks came Sunday as Jackson was talking to a fellow interviewee, UnitedHealth Group executive Dr. Reed V. Tuckson. An open microphone picked up Jackson whispering, "See, Barack's been talking down to black people ... I want to cut his nuts off." [...]

Jackson's son, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois -- co-chair of Obama's presidential campaign -- publicly blasted his father's comments Wednesday.

"I'm deeply outraged and disappointed in Rev. Jackson's reckless statements about Sen. Barack Obama," the younger Jackson said. "His divisive and demeaning comments about the presumptive Democratic nominee -- and I believe the next president of the United States -- contradict his inspiring and courageous career."
If Imus said it, he'd be fired again. If anyone white said it, their career would likely be over. Not with ol' Jesse, though. He will still rake in the money to blame whitey for all of the problems in the black community.

And people will be more than happy to let whitey continue to take the blame for the black community's woes, while Jesse continues to do to the black community what he said that he wanted to do to Obama.

As an african american, I agree with your statements...It's unfortunate the double standard that's applied by liberalism.

Anyone who believes in this liberation theology bs is nuts to begin with.

There are few people who can do no wrong, Jackson and Obama are 2 of them according to American Society

Thanks for your response. I agree with you that it is unfortunate that there is a double standard out there for some.

Back in March of 2007, Eugene Robinson quoted Obama describing himself as a possible force for uniting the country in a Washington Post op-ed.

"I think that there's the possibility -- not the certainty, but the possibility -- that I can't just win an election but can also transform the country in the process, that the language and the approach I take to politics is sufficiently different that I could bring diverse parts of this country together in a way that hasn't been done in some time, and that bridging those divisions is a critical element in solving problems like health care or energy or education."

As time has passed, however, Obama seems to provide a means to be a more and more divisive force instead of a uniting force. I've held for some time that Obama is just a typical politician, but I guess that we'll need to wait and see how this all shakes out come November.
