Trayvon Martin case: 'Blacks are under attack,' says Jesse Jackson

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Mercor, Mar 24, 2012.

  1. Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson said Friday that he's grateful the rest of the country has sat up and taken notice of the tragic slaying of Trayvon Martin. But he can't help but wonder: Why has it taken so long for everyone else to recognize the chronic injustices that African Americans face?

    "We're surprised that everyone else is surprised," Jackson told the Los Angeles Times. African Americans have tried for decades to get the rest of America to understand their plight, he said, particularly their beliefs that justice is still elusive in many parts of America, especially the Deep South.

    Okay....So what does JJ want?

    We have laws and courts for injustices.

    Do we need "new" laws?

    Jessie needs an new infusion of cash from Democrats and blacks. Best way to get that is to take a tragic story and make everyone mad as hell then try to ride in as the hero.
     
  4. Of course jesse won't be satisfied until blacks have legal immunity from charges being filed from plaintiffs of another race.


    Ie: just like pre-civil war in the south with the roles reversed.

    Eric Holder has already granted them that right with respect to federal law.
     
  6. True but practicing it and codifying it are 2 different things.
     
  7. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are worthless humans who spend all their time stirring the racial pot in order to raise money to support their luxery lifestyles. The last thing these individuals want is for racism to disappear because then they would have no "cause" and their rice bowl would be empty.
