Messy Jesse Jackson recently took a silent swipe at Barack Obama:
Yet the Democratic candidates — with the exception of John Edwards, who opened his campaign in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward and has made addressing poverty central to his campaign — have virtually ignored the plight of African Americans in this country. The catastrophic crisis that engulfs the African-American community goes without mention. No urban agenda is given priority. When thousands of African Americans marched in protest in Jena, La., not one candidate showed up.
SMH. Barack Obama doesn’t have to show up at a Jena 6 rally, he is playing the game, to win.
That old 60’s, out of date and out of touch civil rights game is not going to help Obama get anywhere. SMH.
According to a recent study, the majority of Black voters support Hillary over Obama. In other Obama news for the day, Oprah is co-signing his campaign with her stacks and scheduled public appearances.
