While he was here, Jesse shook down two local corporations for contributions, just to stay in practice.

And you were there at the Lorraine hotel on the balcony pointing to where Dr. Martin L.King was shot? Who was the man that cleaned up the blood? And you marched with him where? You've changed people's lives for the better, how? Yes, he's done some shade. Politics, religion, just trying to help others gets messy and dirty. That is true. Who will remember you? I know I am nobody...just scribbles and suggested silence with clicks....

"At this stage in my life nothing is more painful to me than to be walking down the street, hear footsteps behind me, start thinking about robbery only to turn around, see a white person and feel relieved." - Jesse Jackson

THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE!!!!!

Witnesses report Mr. Jackson conspicuously failed to mention the following:

1) His child out-of-wedlock, from an affair, while married.

"Karin Stanford (pictured), the Mother of Jesse Jackson‘s 12-year-old love child, is going public with her allegations that the good reverend has fallen behind on his child support payments to the tune of $11,694.50......
Stanford first met Jackson, when she was completing her doctoral dissertation on his foreign policy record. Jackson, who was married with five children, and Stanford crossed paths again in the mid-1990s, when she was a professor at the University of Georgia turning her dissertation into a book. After an all-day meeting, Jackson offered her a position on his staff at the Washington, D.C., Rainbow/PUSH Coalition bureau.

....during their four-year affair but also claimed that she understood Jackson’s marriage was one of political convenience."


2) Jackson's son and daughter-in-law were convicted and sentenced to prison for misuse of campaign funds.

"The Jacksons pleaded guilty to federal charges in February 2013 and were sentenced in August of that year; he looted about $750,000 from his campaign treasury over several years and she failed to report much of the money on tax returns. He spent the money on vacations, furs, celebrity memorabilia, everyday goods and two mounted elk heads."

Bill Cosby comes here a lot too. I didn't bring either. Your Mayor and friend. Never met the man. Never will.
Shall we talk Founding Fathers? A real history lesson? I read, not just Google.
