Jesse Jackson on Race Comments by New White House Press Secretary Tony
Snow: "An Attempt to Make the Quest for Racial Justice Illegitimate"


We get response from the Rev. Jesse Jackson about comments made by incoming White Press Secretary - former Fox News commentator Tony Snow. Last week, Snow said on his radio program, "People like Jesse Jackson who have committed themselves to a view that blacks are constantly victims have succeeded in creating...an underclass that doesn't seem to be going anywhere."

I cannot believe these comments by Tony Snow. What a bloody lunatic. These comments are nothing short of racist. They are made by a bigot who has probably never met the "black underclass" and needs a history lesson.

I am absolutely disgusted this moron has been nominated to hold any duty in the White House. If there is one thing I cannot stand it is a racist rich white shock-jock who uses wedge politics to try and appeal to the red-neck bogans on this planet.

What is this world coming to when you get a radio shock-jock (he certainly isn't a journalist) from the least reputable news organisation in the US taking on the role of public mouth-piece for the President? And I thought Paul Wolfowitz being nominated to the World Bank and John Bolton being parachuted into the UN were abysmal decisions.

Jesse Jackson History & Civil Business Politics

This one is interesting and has me teetering on who is right. The reason for this is that Snow's statements aren't completely wrong. Jesse Jackson has turned into the most self serving civil rights activist in history. You can't tell a company that you either have to hire more black people or give a donation to his foundation. If getting jobs, equality, and representation is your goal, then don't give the option of giving a donation because they don't need donations, they need equality. Snow called him out on it and is being criticized. However, a man in his position should learn to use more tact. Listening to the rest of his statement sounds like he blames minorities for being minorities. He obviously has some very general stereo types regarding blacks and it does show. But then, giving such a high job to a news anchor is silly. Snow either neither well spoken enough, non-biased enough, nor intelligent enough to have the position in my opinion.

My anger at Snow's comments aren't directed towards his criticism of Jackson. The guy may well be self serving and counterproductive.

My criticism is that he is asserting that people like Jackson are the reason why there is an underclass of black people in the US. That is grossly offensive. The reasons for a black underclass in the US are pretty well known and I can promise you this "underclass" developed from slavery well before Jackson's time. Jackson isn't the reason why it still occurs and Snow knows that.

I don't see a problem with giving the press secretary role to someone with media experience because they are generally exceptional communicators. But to give the job to someone from the most rabid right-wing infotainment channel is ridiculous. Foxnews has no credibility whatsoever, especially within the media. I would have thought such an important role would require someone with that trait on their CV.

I wonder sometimes why people make comments when they know they have a mike on. Telling people you thought it was off when your whispering to someone else tells me that you did not think it was off. You were just hoping it would not pick it up.

Microphone Gaffes

The microphone can be a public figure's best friend or his worst enemy. The Rev. Jesse Jackson learned that the hard way. His disparaging remarks about Sen. Barack Obama on Wednesday were picked up by a mic he thought was turned off. Jackson is just one in a long line of loose-lipped politicians who have gaffed before an open mic.

Well I saw this on "The View" and the lovely ladies had a wonderful time at Reverend Jackson's expense. One of the moderators, Sherrie Jackson was explaining that there are moments, when it is possible to actually forget about having the microphone on. She jokingly gave an example that she had to promote a product on the show, "The View" and during a commercial break, her co-anchor Joy, asked her about the product and Sherrie's response was, "how the hell should I know!" and of course, she forgot that her microphone was on. Naturally, it was a very embarrassing moment for her.

You see Kntoran, long ago, the microphone was a lot bigger and an individual had to actually hold it in his hand, making it almost impossible to forget that it was there. I believe that there is a tiny switch which allows the user to turn the microphone on and off. But with all the technology we have these days, the microphone looks like a tiny button and I could understand why it is so easy to forget about it being on or the individual forgetting that he is "wearing" a microphone. I think he was whispering because he did not want the camera crew or news crew to overhear his disparaging remarks. But the whole world did!

Judging from Reverend Jesse Jackson's remarks, it appears that he is not a fan of Senator Barack Obama. I wonder why? Could it be that Senator Barack Obama has successfully achieved Reverend Jesse's dream? I am sure we all know how many years Reverend was longing to be the first black American president but always miserably failed. It is a great pity that he does not realise that he could be his own worse enemy. He obviously suffers from the "foot in the mouth" disease. He never seems to think carefully before he speaks. That's what happens when you love being in the spotlight all the time. You think of yourself more rather than bother to carefully consider what you are going to say to the public. I think the good old Reverend is plain jealous. Pretty funny and very ironic, considering that Reverend is always preaching about how blacks are treated in this world. I can't believe that he would stoop so low and be so enveloped with rage to make such a disparaging remark. I would have thought that Reverend Jesse Jackson would have been Senator Barack Obama's biggest supporter....
