    fortunately, one can call one's self a fan of Jesse Jackson and still call one's self "stupid."

    Let's see he's the one that called blacks to fill the streets with white blood not that many years ago isn't he. Guess we all change with the times.

    He's a despickable man, feeding off racism, which would all but die out without his efforts to keep it going.

    This man has made a good easy living by exploiting the races. The worst thing that could happen to him would be for racism to end, which according to him and his ilk, will never happen. It's a cash cow! And yes, he is despickable!

    Poor ole Jessie..... still singing the sme ole tune.... and hates the color of his own skin!

    Is he black? Yeah.... maybe that 's what he wants to call himself.

    I call him human..... and human is the race I consider both he and I belong to.

    The problem with folks who are like him..... they see everything as a construct of color and as long as they do..... whatever the color their skin may be..... they are attempting to create or hold onto the very sterotypes of politics, culture, morals, education, inequality, etc., which they deceive themselves into thinking they are fighting against.

    Poor ole Jessie. Too bad so many follow him or others like him (some of different colors with similar debates) and are influenced either because they are too busy to think or else don't think.

    I thought using the descriptive term "black" was considered racist. I'm confused.

    I don't know a single black adult who considers Jesse Jackson anything other than a goofball.

    Off topic - have you ever read into the history of his church in Chicago? the Pilgrim Baptist Church? It was also pastored by Thomas Dorsey, the Blues writer/singer who also wrote 'Precious Lord' and 'Peace in the Valley'.

    I heard a black man on a talk show make the claim that Clarence Thomas was not "BLACK".

    Seriously, the question was asked of this guy, why the blacks did not use many of the successful blacks as role models. CT being one of them, as one who has achieved spectacular success as a black man.

    The caller responded that CT was not a role model for blacks, "--because we do not consider him a BLACK."

    It's fer sure that you can't argue with stupidity, and this was a classic case of the host making the attempt.

    At least one can see why the JJs of this country are still pandering - they ARE BLACK!!!!

    Of course CT is NOT Black - I could prove it, if I could just obtain a copy of his long form birth certificate! :smilewinkgrin:
