Why I'm just shocked, shocked I tell you that the Rev'urn Jesse Jax-un would a race card playin' hypocrite. He and Al Sharpton (aka "The Justice Brothers") are two peas in a pod.

So should he publicly apologize to himself now or what?

Here's a great example of why politically correct language is meaningless. Jackson can apologize up and down for his choice of words, and for his comments about Obama, but he hasn't changed his mind any. This was not like farting in public, just slipping out involuntarily. He consciously said those things, and he meant exactly what he said. There is no reason to believe he thinks any differently now, or that he will not continue to shoot his mouth off behind the scenes. He's chagrined that he got caught, but he's not sorry. I'd have told him to stuff his apology.

The thing is this genius has had more mic's on than Chin's in a Chinese phone book. He should have known the mic could have been 'hot' (on) and to speak accordingly.

AndyC is correct he knew what he said, he meant what he said and he still believes what he said regardless of what he says now. It annoys the hell out of me when these talking heads, pundits, candidates, candidate's wives/husbands say something stupid, get caught and think they can just go "Oops, didn't really mean that!" ... Yes you did or you wouldn't have said it, period. You own your words.

I know when I worked for others I had to "take back" something I said on more than one occasion (You're shocked, I know), it didn't mean a thing, it didn't change what I thought and it was just playing the political game of expedience. All it did was make me put the offended person a little higher on my sh!t list.

So the Rev'urn Jesse Jax-un thinks he can go diddy-bopping from news channel to news channel doing the "Ooops" dance and get away with it, I think not. He's never had any credibility with me and he never will, he ranks right up there with the Rev. "Big Al" Sharpton. These two trade in hate, they trade in oppression and if they really tried to solve the problems they preach about, they'd be out of business.

They're collectively a moron, but not so much of one to work themselves out of a job.

I saw this on SkyNews last week: I didn't like what he said, especially the part about wanting to separate a part of Mr Obama's privates from the rest of him.  Buggedout

Again, I think these frequent slips and slurs by Jackson reflect his growing frustration that comes from knowing he is a spent force in American politics.  I've never liked Jackson - he was a always such an opportunist, from the day he went on TV with Dr. King's blood soaking his shirt until now.  At least Al Sharpton is funny and can be self-deprecating at times.  Jackson is just rude and confrontational.

I agree. Deep down, guys like Jackson and Sharpton don't want a black president. It would seriously undermine their power if a black man were elected to the highest office in the land. It might, God forbid, give black kids the idea that their race need not limit what they can achieve if they work hard. And Obama might actually, gasp, do something constructive to enhance race relations. That could put a lot of hardworking demagogues out of a job. Quick, somebody label this guy a sellout before he ruins a good racket!

DISCLAIMER: I, Grace, do hear-by solemnly swear I am not trying to offend anyone with the following post! I am only relegating opinions of my own and a few of Dr. Parker's (University of Tennessee).


OK, this is the kind of thing that p**ses me off, just like feminism. All these women want to be firefighters, but when the building catches on fire; what does she do? she looks at the nearest male firefighter and says 'you need to go in there". (I'm not speaking of all female firefighters, just our locals ones  Smile)

Jesse Jackson needs to be put out of his (or maybe more appropriately 'my') misery. Why sink yourself to the lowest of the lows when you've been consistently 'fighting against' these types of behaviours and languages. Next thing you know, he'll be like Mel 'Der Fuhrer' Gibson and go into rehab. If i had to go to rehab for everytime I offended somebody; I'd own lakeside behavioral health systems by now (me offend? shocking, huh?)

Anyways, I hate it when someone puts down racism, to only act like a racist. Following is my own experience with racism; which is not uncommon considering the area where I live, Cheezefixz can probably attest to that.

Before I changed my major to Criminal Justice, I spent a semester as an English major..whew it was terrible and i really didn't have the passion for it that i thought i did. Anyways, part of my core classes required that I take an Ebonics course. Mind you, this is a university...they should teach you to be smarter, not talk ghetto-etiquitte. Anyways, I was the only 'cracker' in the class (as I was referred to often, yeah, I can hear you even though you were sitting three rows back). Even the Professor, Dr. Parker, was african-american. Although now in retrospect, I think he may be the whitest person i know; even whiter than my dad (or my grandfather who fought in WW2 and it never left him till his death) and that's saying something.

Anyways, on the first day of class; Dr. Parker stood up at his podium and said to the class "Do you like being called a n****r?" the student body of course said, "NO" then he said "Do you like being treated like a n****r?" again they said "no". And so he answered like this "Then quit acting like one and furthermore that will be the last time the term 'n****r' is to be used for the duration of this class" I thought he had a lot of bal%^ to say this in front of 50 black students and one 'cracker'. But I thought he made a point when he went on to say 'pull up your pants, quit acting like a gang banger and refer to your ex by his name and not 'my baby daddy'.

Let me tell you one thing; I suffered through this class... One day, close to midterms, the girl in the next row asked me 'Grace, do you hate black people?" I said "well, I consider myself a misanthropist, I don't even like white people." I don't think she liked my quip, which I thought was funny, and if i wasn't treated differently before, i was from then on. Ironic how the fight against racism often just results in reverse-racism....

In the long in short of it, I guess my point is: Its ironic to see jackson act this way; it would be just as similar if I saw Dr. Parker down on South Royal in Jackson "Slinging rock and smacking ho's" (Eazy-E late eighties).

Yes I can, I see as much black racism as white and as long as there is black and white there will be be racism, it's to deeply ingrained into the culture. To think differently is to fool yourself.

You've got to be joking, Ebonics is not a recognized language. It's as you said ghetto talk which IMHO only lends to make someone sound completely uneducated. Society gave them a made up holiday (Kwanzaa), I for one not going to accept a made up language just because you don't want to learn to speak properly. Ya dig dog, bet dat homey. (That my best ebonics, I don't speak it.)

Anyways, I was the only 'cracker' in the class (as I was referred to often, yeah, I can hear you even though you were sitting three rows back).

I always find it ironic when I'm called a 'cracker' I doubt those that call me or you that even know where the term comes from. It's comes from the sound of a whip; 'crack' and the one who has the whip is a 'cracker'. Slave master use to carry whips, and thus the term, while meant to offend is to call someone 'the master'.  So I generally reply "Better to be the cracker than the crackey." Pretty much leaves them baffled.

This is supposed to be Humorous Captions. None of this stuff is funny (after the first three posts).

I'm not saying anything anybody says here is wrong or uninteresting. It is a hot topic. But it does not belong here.

Please take this discussion elsewhere.

I have a similar perspective on when a person is arrested or denied a job and they blame racism.  Although sometimes it is racism it is a good bit of hypocrisy as they are assuming that all white people are racist.  Try wrapping THAT one around on them.
