St. Bernard Proud, your comments are ridiculous and racist. You show your ignorance just as Jesse Jackson has shown his. So it's actually comical that you are chastising Jackson when you have your own issues. As Michael Jackson put it, start with the man in the mirror and focus on changing your ways.

You didn't go to war twice for this country. You went to war, like a chump, twice to defend other countries. Sorry to break it to you like this, captain. But you asked for it.

Jesse Jackson is a condescending a-hole. He acts like he is doing you a personal favor simply to acknowledge your presence. His time has past and someone with some real presence and credibility needs to step up. Jackson is a relic from the past and an anchor holding back real progress. Having met the man, I am comfortable with my comments.

This isn't the first time Jackson has made a racist comment. Back in the 1980's, he insulted Jewish people, calling New York City "hymie town". Jackson is nothing more than a hypocrite who doesn't practice what he preaches.Let somebody make a racist comment about his own race, and he'll go ballistic.
