Jesse Jackson called Black People ‘N*gg#rs’

17 07 2008

There is even worst language used by Rev. Jesse Jackson on Fox News that didn’t come out last week. Bill O’ Reilly now confirmed in another Fox show, yesterday, that Jackson called his own people n*ggers but the initial TV segment was filtered out. Here is what Jackson said: “Barack…is talking down to black people…telling the n*ggers how to behave.. I wanna cut his guts out.”

And according to TVNewser, O’Reilly said the reason why he did not want that part to surface is because: “I’m not in the business of hurting Jesse Jackson. And I’m not in the business of creating some kind of controversy that is not relevant to the general subject: one civil rights leader disparaging another, over policy. So we held it back [but] some weasel leaked it to the internet. That person wants to hurt Jesse Jackson.”

Oh! really, O’Reilly? This world would eventually be a better place if venomous Bill O’ Reilly can talk like that.

Initially, I think the language Jackson used about “guts” is not really a big deal; because this was a guy-to-guy talk. Men, no matter what background, use slangs, jargons and stuff like that when in the mist of their peers. It’s all bravado. However, such language shouldn’t be coming up from someone who wears a ‘clergy title’ on his sleeves.

How much more for Jesse to use racial slurs against the very people he claims to fight for. Isn’t the same Jackson, who advocated banning ‘N’ word, way before Rev Al Sharpton followed suit? Apparently, this isn’t going to be a race issue, but immoral, because Jackson is no Don Imus. So, Rev Al Sharpton should sharpen his rhetoric impartially against his long-time ally: he should start picketing at the Rainbow Coalition Headquarter, as a matter of cause.

BTW, Jesse Jackson had a legitimate reason [but another immoral issue] to vex as Obama teaches responsibility because, if you don’t know, Jackson had a “lovechild” out of wedlock with his assistant, Karin Stanford, Thus that make him absenteeism or partly irresponsible father. So, it is understandable why Obama’s speech hit some core. It was never about Jackson being jealousy of Barack Obama as widely buzzed.

FOX NEWS is guilty of eavesdropping by airing the hot-mic comments. What they did was illegal and immoral. Now, they get paid by Rupert Murdoch.
What’s your excuse?

@ Kurt;
you are right; what Fox News did with their mic is wrong. But I don’t really care about what Jackson said about Obama other than him calling back people N-word.

No doubt, folks at Fox News could be very sleazy sometimes. The name “FOX” speaks for itself.. can’t be trusted. I think Bill O’Reilly tried to play his own part nice so that more Democrat bigshots could still come on his show.

As for Rupert Murdoch, I don’t what the “old-dog” is still looking for in American politics. His time has passed. He should hand over his media empire to his sons, and go back home, retire somewhere in the Pacific.
