For an major Obama official, Jesse Jackson,Jr., to make these racist and sexist remarks, complete with video as shown in Pamela’s post below, is beyond comprehension. If Barrack Obama himself doesn’t disavow this utter trash then he discredits his own campaign and his personal humanity. It is a sign of true fear when a campaign official lashes out with such hatred and distrust using the pain and ethnicity of others as the focus points.
Barrack Obama and Jesse Jackson, Jr. know there was no thinking person in the nation with a television set or computer that wasn’t moved by the pain, suffering, destruction and carnage of that storm and it’s horrible aftermath.
To say that Senator Clinton wasn’t moved by that tragedy’s impact is a remarkable effort at dehumanizing an opponent. In the next moment, Jesse Jackson, Jr. does everything but cast South Carolina as a racist contest to be decided on skin color saying,“…particularly as we head to South Carolina where 45% of African-Americans who participate in the Democratic contest…”
If Barrack Obama doesn’t immediately disavow this effort to wrap his campaign in the pain of Katrina and the ethnicity of South Carolina by he made a mockery of his campaign of ‘change’.
This statement is a very large, very ugly moment in this campaign.
