Jesse Jackson's worn-out race baiting


Jesse, it's no longer 1973; give it up, you're getting boring. Here he is, listening to a speech at a 1973 Operation PUSH event at Chicago's McCormick Place with son Jesse Jackson Jr., now a Congressman. Tribune photo by Gerald West / April 28, 1973

Chicago's very own Jesse L. Jackson Sr. already had turned himself into an embarrassing antiquity by stubbornly clinging to a worldview entirely colored by race. And now, by bringing race into the storm over pro basketball legend Lebron James' departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers, he has become, at best, quaint.

  • Go home already.One jesse is enough.

  • Never found a camera he didn't like, nor an opportunity to use one. The last one was really stretching it. Unfortunately, his son and daughter in law were no different, until the son became Senate Candidate 5. Now, no comment.

  • In reply to jack:

    I am now really teed that Senate Candidate 5 and Presidential Adviser A are not being called as defense witnesses.

    Roe Conn pointed out however, that the Fredrick Douglas of the $20 million a year hoopsters, is, in effect, self-employed, so as long as his flock puts into the collection plate, he is untouchable.

  • Operation Push just like the NAACP have become stagnant.What have you done for your people ??????? If you can't extort money form some company you both do NOTHING. Dinosaurs,extinction.
