Is there any question that Jesse Jackson is a race pimp? I know the left gets their panties in a knot when you say you want to beat someone with a tire iron, but if I had a choice of who I would club, it would start with this wart on humanity’s arse (and I don’t give a shit about how much ‘good’ he may have done in the past):
From the Stanford Review:
Mr. Jackson spent a large portion of his speech emphasizing the existence of a racial divide in the United States. He demanded that the audience look closely at the military, which is 35% black and 15% Latino. He argued that the withdrawal from Iraq of the Marines, who have a higher white percentage, suggests racism on the part of this nation’s military commanders, as the Army, which has a higher percentage of blacks than the Marines, would have remain in Iraq. He argued that the US builds itself up on the backs of “the black, the brown, and the poor.”
I want to see the left defend this one. Oh, then there was this word salad from Jackson:
We didn’t know how good baseball could be until we could play.” He also questioned, “Why is it on the ballfield that we can rise above skin color and focus on uniform color?”
Um, because survival in sport is based upon strict meritocracy?
He mentioned that sports is the one area where blacks do not have to run 12 yards for a first down to prove themselves whereas whites only have to run eight for a first down.
I’d run twelve-teen yards to punch you in the mouth.
