I don't know anyone who likes Jesse Jackson or thinks that he's done anything positive for black people in the 40 years since Martin Luther King Jr. was killed.
When Jesse Jackson opens his mouth to speak, most of the time you can't understand a word he says. And when you do get the gist of what he is saying, it's usually not worth listening to.
So it's a little bit funny that there is this furor about him calling Barack Obama a "nigger" and saying he wants to "cut his nuts off." This is the guy, after all, who referred to New York City as "Hymietown" during an interview in the 80's.
I'm not gonna sugar coat the use of the "N" word. It's an ugly, vile, disrespectful word that, until you actually hear it or say it, you only then realize the impact of what it means.
Can you imagine if someone white said what Jackson said? Oh my, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be calling a press conference and condemning them for using that ugly, ugly word. Don Imus was sent away with his racist tail between his legs for saying "nappy headed ho's," which is nothing compared to what the Reverend Jackson said. Such a godly man.
But for Jackson to refer to Obama as a nigger, kind of makes me laugh a little. Okay, a lot. He's a racist. Always has been, always will be. Period.
