Why African-American Voters
Still Support Jesse Jackson Jr.

Daily Beast, by Allison Samuels

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/20/2012 5:38:24 AM

As many wait to see whether Jesse Jackson Jr. will agree to a plea deal in the investigation of allegations that he misused campaign funds—and as Jackson himself reportedly awaits news on whether he’ll get disability pay if he indeed does resign—an even larger question looms for the voters of Jackson’s 2nd congressional district in Illinois. Where do they go from here? Jackson was elected to his 10th term in Congress last week, even as he struggled with health issues and an ongoing ethics investigation. Though he didn’t campaign for reelection as he was receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic

African Americans continue to support Jesse Jackson Jr, because of his great intellect and high moral principles.

Black people don´t make moral judgments on other black people,it´s really that simile.Another convicted crook from a Chicago district got reelected also and of course Obama won the big prie despite being the most corrupt president in modern times.Obama screwed poor people out of billions by giving it to his big donor white supporters but they didn´t see that.

Of course you have Jackson jr. supporters out of loyalty for what the old man did for the "movement".

Why isn´t Jackson´s wife being prosecuted when she had to be the one picking out the new curtains and furniture?

There is a difference between trying not to judge others for their misdeeds and electing a mentally ill felon as your representative in Washington, a distinction that obviously millions of voters don´t get. In the meantime, the permanent victim mentality of the black race lives on.

It boils down to the 19th century literature and early 20th century music "trickster" myth. This rascal uses wiles against others for personal gain like Joel Chandler´s Brer Rabbit. Great fun for those who fail to see that the trickster has his hand in the African American pocket too.

The trickster motif goes back way before Joel Chandler Harris. The wily servant in Jacobean drama, for example. JJJr isn´t even a good example of the type.

Perhaps a minor point, but...Mike Tyson did not rape that young woman.
He was a judge at a black beauty pageant, and made it clear to all of the contestants that he was interested in having sex with one of them that evening. And in the wee hours of the morning, he sent his limo to pick up the alleged victim, to deliver her to his hotel.
She went to his room, they watched a movie, and afterwards, she testified that she went to the bathroom, removed her panty liner, and went back to the bed. Tyson asked her if she wanted to be on the top or the bottom.
She said, ´top´ and did so, they had coitus, and he sent her away, without escorting her downstairs and back to the limo. She was offended by that, and filed charges.
The state of Indiana hired a hot shot attorney to act as special prosecutor, and Mike Tyson was railroaded, even after testifying credibly.
Justice was not served in the case of Mike Tyson.
Please don´t compare the nutcase known as congressman jackson, who looted his campaign funds to fly his mistress (not merely a female friend) to and from D.C. for carnal pleasure, to Mike Tyson. And jackson spent an additional 40.000 dollars on a rolex for his mistress. She must have some unique talents...

Scam artists on the make like Jesse sr and his crew should have been run out of town on a rail for the way they tried to exploit the death of MLK. MLK must be crying real tears because of the total corruption of his message by the Jacksons, Sharptons, etc. Shockingly, after all these decades, white people appreciate and grasp MLK´s message more than the voter base of Jackson.

MLK must be spinning in his grave. What ever happened to judging a man "Not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character"?

Look at Africa and all the greatness on display there. It is in the genes. South Africa was better than many European countries in its prime but liberals and communist blacks (Mandela) got the world media and opinion to help them slaughter the Dutch immigrants and other white farmers and now you have one of the most violent countries on the continent. Rhodesia was the bread basket of Africa & very prosperous but world opinion (liberals) crushed until this day white achievers and gave the world Mugabe and dispair. Now everyone is equally miserable. Coming to the USA on the fast track!

Illinois has gerrymandered the districts in such a way that every Republican seat won in 2010 was taken back by the Democrats in 2012. There are cases where far away Republican suburbs are connected by a thin line drawn for miles so that it connects into the city, where Democrats dominate. Jesse´s district is probably like that.

The answer is very simple, he is a Democrat and they live on the Democrat Plantation.

They have no clue what freedom is really like they only understand dependancy and handouts provided by the liberal DNC.
The liberals do not believe that a black person has the capabilities to survive and prosper on their own so they must be cared for like a slow (retarded) child.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund announced Saturday it has endorsed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for re-election in the May 20 Kentucky primary.

There´s a new word in play on the Scrabble game board: geocache. The word, a verb meaning to track down items as part of a game using a Global Positioning System device, beat out 15 other nominated words in an online fan vote to select the newest addition to The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. It´s the first change in nearly a decade to the beloved board game in which players build words - and earn points - using alphabet letter tiles, said Hasbro, the Pawtucket, Rhode Island, maker of Scrabble.

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is tightening the reins on cash handling to eliminate an embarrassing lack of oversight that allegedly allowed a low-level clerk in the Chicago Department of Transportation to embezzle nearly $750,000 in permit fees over a six-year period.

WASHINGTON – Lawmakers with strong ties to the Tea Party movement have gained a toehold in the U.S. Senate but it appears they might have difficulty expanding their numbers this year. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are among those associated with the conservative, grassroots drive that has proved influential within Republican Party politics in a relatively short period of time. But a review of upcoming Senate contests reveals that more establishmentarian Senate candidates maintain an edge – at least to this point – heading into the primary season.

Obamas´ income drops 21% to $481,098

New York - President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama reported an adjusted gross income of $481,098 for 2013 -- about 21% less than the year before. The bulk of their income came from the president´s salary, but the Obamas also reported roughly $100,000 in business income from Random House and literary management company Dystel & Goderich. The White House released the couple´s 2013 federal tax return on Friday. Their federal tax bill for 2013 came to $98,169, according to their return. That´s an effective federal tax rate of 20.4% on the First Family´s AGI. But because they already paid $117,277 in federal taxes,

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the "evil" of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness. Francis made the off-the-cuff remarks after coming under criticism from victims´ advocacy groups for a perceived lack of attention to the sexual abuse scandal and ongoing demands that he sanction bishops who covered up for pedophiles.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
