The Racist Pot Calls the Kettle White

The self-righteous Reverend Jesse Jackson is playing the race card again. But what the heck, he’s good at it. Why stop when you have a good thing going? This time he attacked another black, in the person of Barrack Obama.

Jackson sharply criticized presidential hopeful and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama for “acting like he’s white” in what Jackson said has been a tepid response to six black juveniles’ arrest on attempted-murder charges in Jena, La. Jackson, who also lives in Illinois, endorsed Obama in March, according to The Associated Press.

Perhaps someone can clarify the qualities of acting white. Add in the qualities of acting black. Maybe we can then have a dialogue. Unfortunately, we are stuck with Jackson doing what he does best, demonizing and bullying by using race. Jesse Jackson is as much of a racist as is a Ku Klux Klan member. No wonder Obama does not want to join Jackson’s latest racist tirade.
