Jackson explained today that his tears were in remembrance of those Black leaders who did not survive to see this momentous day. But given the particular history of Jesse Jackson who has made an industry of race baiting, racial intimidation, corporate shakedowns, and modern industrial highway robbery I am dubious of his explanation.
The Reverend Jesse Jackson could truly be thinking -
"Damn, I'm proud of this young Black man, Barack Obama."Or, he could be thinking -
"Damn! I can't blame whitey any longer."Or, maybe -
"Damn! I'm out of a job!"There is an outside chance Jackson was thinking all three. Perhaps many more Blacks in the Race Industry were thinking the same. It would be a good thing, I think.
