    Jesse Jackson leads rally for Chicago basketball star convicted in sex assault

    STILLWATER, Okla. — Darrell Williams’ supporters put their faith in God on Thursday night — and in the unifying power of the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

    Williams, 22, a suspended Oklahoma State basketball player from Chicago, is scheduled to be sentenced here Friday for molesting two women at a college house party. Williams was convicted of two counts rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery, but that means little to his supporters.

    “Jesus was innocent but convicted,” Jackson said.

    The civil rights leader, who addressed a packed church of all ages and races, told his rapt audience of the time he spent with Williams on Thursday in the Payne County Jail.

    “His spirits are strong,” Jackson said, “his faith is strong. He declared his innocence. He believes God will see him through.”

    After defeating Hillary in Iowa in 2008, Jesse Jackson Jr, then co-chairman of Obama's campaign said "The natural reminder here is O.J. [Simpson]—how does an African-American candidate attack a white woman?"

    This is the party for women.
  3. Jesse Jackson is a jack-ass in more ways than one.

    He said he was sorry. Doesn't that exonerate him? He's black and from Chicago - he should get a pass. Right?
