Jesse Jackson loves the camera
Published on Wednesday, Jul 16, 2008




By Les Payne




NEW YORK: As Nelson Mandela walked the line of dignitaries at Kennedy Airport during his historic 1990 U.S. visit, the Rev. Jesse Jackson positioned himself before the TV cameras, then reached up and needlessly adjusted Mandela's tie.

This cheap gesture on the tarmac revealed Jackson's compulsion to steal the scene, and it signaled his more ambitious aim to keep the cameras focused not on Mandela but on himself. Earlier, in South Africa, Jackson had brazenly attempted to join Mandela in his very walk out of prison after 27 years for fighting against apartheid.

The U.S. trip was planned for Mandela — who turns 90 on Friday — to thank Americans for pressuring the racist South Africa government in his behalf and to raise money for his African National Congress party to run in the first democratic elections.

While supporting these noble efforts, Jackson's self-centeredness got the better of him. Hogging the spotlight, the civil rights leader was escorted, politely, out of a New York City meeting with a national newspaper. On the last leg, the African National Congress headed off the maneuvers of Jackson's entourage to board Mandela's plane from Detroit to Los Angeles.

Keeping Jackson away from TV cameras was akin to blocking the pull of iron filings to a magnet.

Yet, until last week, the savvy Democrat had seemed content to operate in media shadows this primary season. This containment was a singular achievement of Barack Obama's campaign, ranking, in some circles, alongside the defeat of the Clintons' juggernaut. The handling of the irrepressible fellow Chicagoan is all the more surprising because, unlike, say with Mandela, Jackson's groundwork paved the way for the first black Democratic nominee.

In his 1988 bid for the Democratic nomination, Jackson raised $17 million, won seven primaries, four caucuses and carried 1,250 delegates to the national convention that nominated Michael Dukakis. With a larger bankroll, Jackson speculates that he — instead of Obama, two decades later — would have been written into the history books.

Still, Jackson-the-trailblazer remained pretty much a loyal if not overly enthusiastic Obama supporter until his snide attack. His utterance over a TV studio microphone assumed to have been mute had Jackson accusing Obama of ''talking down'' to black people, presumably during a Father's Day speech at a church. Jackson's cruel and unusual punishment for this alleged condescension called for him to ''cut off.''

Such is the normal stuff of Jackson asides. They are as empty of malice as they are florid with colors and billingsgate. Analysts might probe for deeper meaning not so much in the metaphor as in the irony. Obama's alleged offense was at a South Side Chicago church where he told an audience of far too few dads that they should be more engaged in their children's lives. This vital message at the proper venue was delivered quite appropriately and directly to the targeted group.

By contrast, Jackson is a past master of the art of indirect self-criticism. In his heyday, the civil rights leader had the nasty habit of floating the stereotype notion in mainstream media that black Johnny can't read because black Johnny just won't study. While it is questionable that Obama was ''talking down'' to blacks, there is no question that Jackson's sly ''black Johnny'' slander was half-baked.

The bold captain's reaction to media opportunity, however, remains hair-trigger. Before Fox TV even aired its off-mic Obama riff, Jackson was on the horn with CNN with a preemptive apology.

Criticism of Jackson's off-color remarks cites jealousy, envy, self-righteousness, or worse. I rather suspect that the Rev. Jackson is a committed, though reluctant, admirer of the younger Obama, who has outdistanced his own campaign efforts.

Like most aging lions, Jackson hears the powerful roar of the future and dreads the hunt going forward without him at the lead. It is not enough that Obama stands on Jackson's shoulders, as he most assuredly does. The proud and dashing Jackson longs once more to square his shoulders and head to the convention podium before the national TV cameras.

The march of time, however, demands a turning of the page and of the leaves as the darkness turns into day, world without end.

Sadly, you are spot on (for the most part). I believe whites have, over the years, become more cognizant about using degrading and racist speak towards AA's, but I really haven't seen a decrease in racist speak towards whites, at least not around da Burgh. A few weeks back in WalMart, my daughter was called a 'dumb cracker bitch' because she shimmied around two 747 sized AA women who were standing smack dab in the middle of the aisle, saw her coming and wouldn't moooooooo-ve. She stopped dead in her tracks and I quickly grabbed her arm and led her down the aisle as I knew she was very offended and was going to step to them about their comments which we both heard - everyone in the aisle heard it as it was a shout. As I didn't want Angie and I to be turned into human runways, I told her to ignore it and we walked away.

I hate racism in all forms. Unfortunately, there are still millions of AA's who support Jack-ass-son and Sharpton and hinge on their every word as gospel. :doh: There won't be any upheavel over this recent revelation, as for whatever reason, it is OK for AA's to refer to each other using the "N" word, but when whites do it, it is viewed as racist. :banging:

Before going to prison, Mumia Abu Jamal interviewed him (as a PBS correspondent) and asked him off the record what he felt about the MOVE group in Philadelphia... Jacksons response was "I don't care about a bunch of unwashed nappy-headded profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilters". When aske if he would repeat his views for the record he replied "No comment".

That is not what she's saying. She's talking about the clear double-standard and difference in reaction among blacks when it comes to use of the word. I've been saying the same thing for years - if black people are going to use the N word freely, then they really shouldn't complain when a white person does, no matter the context.

He is no better than King Babatu and King Tegbesu who made millions if not billions (in todays dollars) by selling off fellow blacks whom they enslaved in wars and raids.


The one reality that EVERYONE must come to terms with...

Slavery wasn't a WHITE sin, it was a WORLD sin. Black MUSLIM (among others) princes and kings sold people they captured in raids for massive amount of money. White people bought them and shipped them over.

Some of those are bad examples. The NAACP was founded 100 years ago, when we had a racial caste system backed by government violence. You cannot reasonably claim that black people were unjustified in starting the NAACP. And the NAAWP does exist--it was founded by David Duke in the 1980s.

The UNCF does not exclusively fund black students.It initally served that purpose back when higher education was largely segregated, but is now open to all races. Some of the funds also go to historically black colleges, which are also open to all races.

Black people are not the only ethnic group with their own beauty pageant. There are pageants for Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, and Polish-Americans.

No - they were not unjustified in creating the NAACP 100 years ago, but what that organization has become over the last 30+ years is pitiful and quite honestly - pathetic. I don't think that any reasonable AA who has been paying attention can deny that.

The UNCF does not exclusively fund black students.It initally served that purpose back when higher education was largely segregated, but is now open to all races. Some of the funds also go to historically black colleges, which are also open to all races.

Without going into a lot of detail here, I must emphatically disagree with your statements above, as from personal knowledge, the UNCF might state that it does not exclusively fund black students, but I know that to be totally untrue.

Black people are not the only ethnic group with their own beauty pageant. There are pageants for Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, and Polish-Americans.

Sure there are, but those pageants are not cast out in the forefront like the Miss America Pageant and Miss Black America Pageant. White women cannot enter the Miss Black America Pageant, but AA women can enter both the Miss America and Miss USA pageants and some AA contestants have won the crown.

A few years ago in Cinci, Ohio they had the State Fireman's convention. A few for a joke made up shirts that said FBOWF Fraternal brotherhood of White Fireman. They were banned from the convention as being racist, yet there was a BOBF caucus there. What's the difference? A firemans a fireman whether he is white black yellow of smurf blue.

Basically, anyone who looks at Jessie Jackson as any kind of role model, leader, etc. must have their IQ tested. Jackson is one of the biggest bigots I have ever read or heard about. If anyone follows him or gives him any kind of moral credit, their judgement should be seriously questioned and they are just blind followers.

It's time to get rid of the hyprocrisy of using the "N" word....for all races. How would a Black man react to another Black man who had a Confederate Flag liscence plate, sticker, or sign on his car, home, etc. Both the "N" word and the Confederate Flag are allegedly a sign of oppression for Blacks, but it seems like some people want to pick and choose what they can say or display. If one is wrong, then the other is as well for them to say or display.
