I still don't understand how anyone still takes Jesse Jackson seriously anymore after his whole love child scandal from a few years back in addition to the fact that he uses extortion to fatten his wallet.
All of my African-American friends can't stand him.
In fact one of them said the other day "I don't remember casting a vote for Jesse Jackson to represent the supposed thoughts of black people everywhere."
There was an interesting op-ed piece in the local paper, the day after this came out. Written by an Afro-American woman, it pointed out, that despite what the mostly white press may think, no black man or black woman speaks for all Afro-Americans. Not even Jesse Jackson, whatever he may think.
