I felt my stomach turn the moment that Jackson started to speak. Am I the only one who remembers when Jackson indicating that he wanted to "cut his nuts off" in reference to President Obama?
I didn't always feel this way. I used to think that Jackson was an American hero in 1984 and 1988 when he ran for president. I was so moved by the 1988 speech he gave at the Democratic National Convention that I posted it on this blog for posterity.
But, all of that turned sour when Jackson let his jealousy of Obama show that day in the newsroom. What man would talk about castrating another man? Jackson did ... and I've never been able to get right with him since then.
