Jesse Jackson DID TOO!
“There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody White and feel relieved.”

Jesse Jackson: Obama's Grandmother?
By Mark Finkelstein | March 18, 2008 <<<----<<< <<
Playing the moral equivalence card in his speech this morning, Barack Obama said this:
I can no more disown [Rev. Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world,
but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.
Which sent me scurrying to Google for the quote I was sure I remembered.
And sure enough:
There is nothing more painful to me ... than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.-- the Reverend Jesse Jackson, as quoted in US News, 3/10/96
Have Obama's grandmother and Jesse Jackson ever been seen in the same room? MSM, get on this: I smell a Pulitzer!
