The Rev. Jesse Jackson apologized Wednesday for saying Barack Obama is “talking down to black people” during what Jackson thought was a private conversation before a FOX News interview Sunday.
Jackson was speaking to a guest at the time about Obama’s speeches in black churches and his support for faith-based charities. Jackson added before going live, “I want to cut his nuts off.”
His microphone picked up the remarks"
THIS is exactly what people are talking about when they say they want CHANGE.
An end to the knee-jerk reaction to any criticism of African-Americans and any suggestion that they may be at least partially to blame for their own predicament as inherently racist.
Moderate Republicans should be embracing Obama for his endorsement of the Cosby Position.
When consuming any media outlet, or listening to any media pundit, ask yourself this question...
Is this helping to bring people together? Or is this helping to drive people apart?
I won't presume to tell you which choice to endorse.
Your conscious should be telling you that.
