Jesse Jackson: Don't hate him because he's beautiful.
I've been up close and personal. He's beautiful. I've seen how much he really cares about people, ALL people.
Two people replying to another post trashed him. White people love to trash him. Know why? Because he gets black people active in resolving community and social issues. If you want a group of people to be helpless and direction-less, kill their leaders with guns, bombs, or words.
One of people who trash-talked him said she saw a picture of a Ferguson resident refusing his hand. I'm here to tell you that would never happen. It may have looked that way to her (wishful thinking) but I'd challenge her to post that pic.
Here's what I wrote to her including a video I found (small edits made):
The citizens of Ferguson are honking their horns and dancing in the streets and signifying to the words the Reverend is saying because Rev. Jackson is there for them.
As usual the Faux reporter tried to bait him into saying things white Americans hate to hear black people saying but he's too savvy for that. When the interviewer asked why the Reverend doesn't do this in Chicago I almost laughed because he most certainly does. I remembered someone else in another post saying the people who ask this don't really care whether black people are being killed and I could see this reporter doesn't either. What she was really saying is, "Why don't you get on other black people the way you always get on white people?" They try very hard to discredit Jesse Jackson by making it seem he only cares about denouncing white people. That reporter's job was to perpetuate the idea he hates white people.
The Reverend goes where people call him. He seldom just shows up, he has to have someone host him. He needs someone to fill him in on the details and needs someone to be his guide to the city. If they don't pay his expenses to get there and stay there, it makes sense to ask for donations or the man and his family would starve to death while he goes broke flying to and paying for lodging everyplace he goes when called. Usually it is churches or black civic organizations that call him to ask for adivce and help getting organized. The press finds out and asks for interviews. Then they slam him. He does not seek the press, they seek him.
