I hear a lot about how Jesse Jackson apparently "makes up race issues." Myself, as a person who has, in part, "made his money off of race issues," I cannot think of one solitary instance where he "made up a race issue." If people are referring to Tawanna Brawley (sp?), I don't believe Jackson was part of the front lines in that issue, but I could be wrong. If he was, then that is one race issue that he has "made up."
Aside from the constant recitation of this, does anyone know of specific instances where he "made up race issues?" Furthermore, if we want to characterize him as a guy who primarily "makes up race issues" (because, and as Sean McVeigh Hannity reminds us, discrimination and prejudice no longer exists since the election of President Obama), could we also list some race issues that he did not "make up" and were, in fact, real?
And, yes, the Black Panther Party is a racist organization (and even more scary, they may be communists too). However, here's the key: they don't deny it. It is those who deny it and fail to recognize that racism is real that should be our primary concern.
