CNN and Rev. Jesse Jackson must figure that his role as a spokesperson for the Michael Jackson family placed him in position to become a spokesperson for the entire Black community again. Personally, I think that Jackson has some gumption (aka 'balls'!) for stepping back into the national spotlight as he's done with this interview:
I don't have a problem with people in the Black community seeking greater access and greater government action to impact the poor and unemployed.
I do have a problem with Rev. Jackson thinking that he is the proper person to make this call. It was only a year ago that Rev. Jackson was calling for the castration of Barack Obama.
As such, I find it difficult to give any credibility to Rev. Jackson when he says that he “wants to engage more fully with [Obama] because there is a lot of unfinished business.”
While Jackson noted that the president has met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus and with some African American mayors, Jackson said he has yet to sit down with Obama.
Note to Rev Jackson -- I wouldn't doubt that you have been blacklisted from the White House by First Lady Michelle Obama. No woman wants her man in the same room with someone that fantasizes about "cutting his balls off".
Villagers ... what say u about the re-emergence of Rev. Jesse Jackson in the public arena?
