The Black Experience in America

Where is Jesse Jackson

Jesse has been converted and repeats the mantra of change we can believe in.  After all of the controversy surrounding Jesse and Barack would it be unconscionable to give Jesse a prominent speaking role at the Democratic Convention?  If Barack could forgive the Clintons and give both of them prime time slots why not give the man who helped paved the way for Barack a last hooray?  Jesse is a historic black figure who changed the way primary votes correlated to delegates in the democratic party.  Without this change, the Democrats would have crowned Hillary Clinton tonight.  So I ask again, should Barack have invited Jesse to speak?

  1. I can’t see it. He did pave the way but we don’t need anybody’s nuts getting cut off while in Denver. It just would have been a distraction after Jesse ran his mouth a little ways back. Plus you know how they feel about Jesse, those folks don’t feel the same way about Hillary and Bill, he needed their support he didn’t NEED Jesse’s.

  2. you are right he didn’t need Jesse but from a historical perspective would that have been nostalgic? Giving honor where itis due with limited purpose.

  4. I hope he is hiding under a rock with 2 tons of sand on top of it. There is nothing worse than an old fool.
