Re: Jesse Jackson on Barack Obama

I personally can't stand Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. I'm normally not a fan of the NY Post, but this article was linked on drudgereport.com, and I thought it was right on.

Secondly he takes the leap and basically implies that Jesse Jackson is a determinate to the entire African American community. I mean WTF does that mean, we're being judged based on what Jesse Jackson does or says? How would you like for me to judge all Italians based on Antonin Scalia or Rudy Giuliani which are inividuals I and many like minded people don't think highly of? Are they leaders of the Italian American Community?
Well one difference is that neither Scalia or Rudy speak on behalf of one group of people like Jesse does. I know Jesse does not speak for all African Americans but there are a bunch who support him and if they don't I never hear them standing up and speaking out against what he say's.

Re: Jesse Jackson on Barack Obama

Well, to piggy back, First, whether by self appointment, or some other situation, as you say Jesse is allowed to get away with his......behavior. As is the Reverend Al. I for one do not believe they are representative of the Black community, but they are allowed to get away with it. There may be others denouncing them, but if they are, they are not getting the play.
THAT is what makes them so damaging. They are basically all you hear.
IMO these guys are poison to the Black community, and concerned with nothing but self-promotion. I think that JJ showed his colors on the int.
Not a very Christian like comment

Can't really argue with that. However, I feel the need to point out he was a presidential candidate, so people did vote for him. Might have been before your time though.

Judging by your comment here, this has apparently heated you up. All I was saying was clarification was needed on the comment. I was not agreeing or disagreeing.
I personally prefer to get riled up about more important things. Jesse Jackson shouldn't even be worth your time...everyone knows he's a joke.

OK, I need to point out that I am in no way an fan of Jackson or Sharpton. I feel both are borderline morons. That being said, you can not dismiss the good that Jackson has done for the african american community. While Shirley Chisholm was the first african american to try to run for president and pave the road for Jackson, Jackson paved a much wider road as the 2nd african american presidential candidate. He was MUCH more successful than Chisholm and he helped carve a road for Obama today because of his efforts. Jackson was the leader of operation breadbasket which was started by Martin Luther King, and was a civil rights group that made more job opportunities for african americans. He was often seen with MLK and joined in on many of the issues that MLK fought for. In the late 70's he was also involved in mid-east peace processes, but wasn't very successful. Point is, he actually has been a significant african american in history. To dismiss that is dismissing history. Sure he is a joke now, but he wasn't nearly as bad back in the day. It actually pains me to defend the man, I feel like his perceived "power" has gone to his mind, and he is now slightly insane.
