The esteemed Jesse Jackson, referring to being booed down by blacks in Chicago:
They lashed out at Dr. King, they lashed out at Nelson Mandela, they lashed out at Jesus, so all of those who fight for change become the object of frustration.
More to the point was one of Jackson’s non-admirers:
What has he sacrificed for his beliefs? Us. We’ve been sacrificed. On the altar of his political ambition our people have been destroyed.
It wasn’t “cool” that JC Watts called him a race-hustling poverty pimp, but apparently many in the black community are finally getting fed up with Jackson and his band of shakedown artists. Hopefully more will continue.
