Posted on 09/09/2005 2:26:43 PM PDT by John Semmens
Reverend Jesse Jackson asserted that the devastation inflicted on poor blacks by Hurricane Katrina proves America is a racist society.
We dont see this kind of destruction in white or Jewish communities, said Jackson. Why is it always poor blacks whore hurt? Its because our racist society wants it that way.
Jackson said 120,000 people in New Orleans make less than $8,000 a year. This is less than I charge for a single speech, Jackson pointed out.
Jackson also criticized the role given to former presidents George Bush senior and Bill Clinton as coordinators for a fund raising effort following the Katrina tragedy. Why wasnt I asked to lead this relief effort? Jackson demanded to know. As a Black man, I can feel their pain just as well, if not better than Bill Clinton. And my fees are quite reasonable.
Jackson spoke after leading a bus convoy into New Orleans to give a speech to 450 students trapped at Xavier University. If youre Black and you live in a shack, your race will trap you in this place, said Jackson.

And all you black folks run back to Louisiana so you can vote for Ol' Massa Blanco. The woman who said you didn't need food and water.

Well if they mayor had been there the people would've had the Black leader they elected.
Is it completely my imagination or did all the liberals take a retardo pill the day before the hurricane???
It wasn't a pill it was an IV needle.
Jesse has a great way of getting contributions: Give me money, or I'll call you a racist.
Grrrrrrr! He is not a Reverend!
If I was Mr Jackson, I would be careful. The same creator that could change the course of a hurrican, also controls lightning bolts.
This guy is an evil demagogue. He doesn't care about healing racial tensions. He wants to foment them!
You know, it's telling that I can't recognize what's a parody and what's a real article anymore....
Amazingly close to the real thing!!!
Yep... this guy heard 200 billion in relief and shows up for his cut.
Because the leaders they have chosen for themselves never show up BEFORE the storm.
They only show up AFTER the storm to stand on the bodies of their dead "constituents" to grab money and power.
Does Trent Lott live in a black neighborhood? Guess we learn new things everyday.
Jesse is a race baiter. But he's also a racist. And you, sir, are NO Reverend of the Lord's.
God forbid any whites were hurt in Hurricane Katrina along with blacks. Its not like its a 100% black community.
