FROM CNN (WHY I DIDN’T INCLUDE WHITE RESPONSES)
“The Reverend” Jackson evidently doesn’t like Senator Obama ‘stealing’ the limelight from him.
Although I’m a card carrying Republican, I can honestly say that Senator Obama has more class than Jackson can ever hope to have.
Furthermore, if Jesse Jackson truly did care about the plight of African-Americans, he would address the dilemmas facing them in today’s society, such as:
(1) 70% out of wedlock birthrate;
(2) More black men are in prison than in college;
(3)African-American students score lower on tests than their white, Hispanic, and Asian counterparts.
