C.Y.I.N. Case Study: Jesse Jackson = Young Buck!?!

It's pretty hard to size up this "breaking news" story without getting the full context of what Jesse allegedly said. But since the Internet's goin' nuts, I guess I should weigh in.

Jesse Jackson would like to tell Barack Obama that he is sorry for ripping the presumptive Democratic Nominee with comments that are said to be very nasty and according to a report from CNN they are too bad for them to say on the air. One report notes that conservative radio host Sean Hannity revealed on air that that Fox News is in possession of an exclusive tape of Reverend Jesse Jackson, recorded after an interview when he thought the microphone was off, slamming Barack Obama for “talking down black people on matters of faith” among other issues.

Jackson told CNN that the interview had wrapped up and he didn’t realize his remarks were captured by a “hot” microphone. In a helpful tip to folks like Jesse Jackson that they might want to understand that all microphones are live and hot and all cell phone have cameras and video.

"Barack, he's talking down to black people," Jackson said in a short clip the network aired this afternoon on "Special Report with Brit Hume."

Hume reported that Jackson also "threatened to cut off a certain part of Obama's anatomy."
Here's the offensive comment.

And here's Jesse's "apology". I haven't seen this sorta clumsy backpedaling since that one season Prime Time suited up for the Skins.

I'm sure you guys are looking for me to bash Jesse as being some obsolete relic of the Civil Rights era, but really, what's the point? The man's already done enough harm to his own reputation. He doesn't need my help.

And besides, he's completely and totally entitled to his opinion, just like anyone else who thinks Obama should be talking more about the "issues of Black America". I don't particularly agree with his assertion, as anyone who's been here for some time knows, but Jesse's done more than enough in his lifetime to earn the right to speak his mind. I'll vouch for him on that one.

If nothing else, I'm disappointed that he for some reason thought he had to apologize. Andrew Young said some pretty greasy stuff about Obama a few months back, and I don't think dude ever bothered sending calla lilies and a card reading "I'm so sorry".[1]

True Hateration means never having to say you're sorry.

I mean seriously, why is dude channelling Young Buck all of a sudden?

"A Nigga just get confused." Classic.

Young Buck Cryin' To 50 = Jesse Jackson's Tapdancing.

If that's what you meant, stand by your words! I'd have more respect from him if he just came out and was like "Yeah that's right, I said it! So what you beige punk, you wanna make somethin' of it? Come on! Let's roll!"

But he had to apologize. Why?

Sadly enough, even Jesse Jr. (who's a co-chair for the Obama campaign) jumped in the fray, throwing his own Daddy under Barry-4-Prez the bus. Huh?
His comments triggered condemnation from an unexpected source: Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), Jackson's son.

In a statement released by his office, Jackson Jr. said he was "deeply outraged and disappointed in Rev. Jackson's reckless statements about Sen. Barack Obama."

"His divisive and demeaning comments about the presumptive Democratic nominee -- and I believe the next president of the United States -- contradict his inspiring and courageous career," the congressman said.

"Rev. Jackson is my dad and I'll always love him," he said. "He should know how hard that I've worked for the last year and a half as a national co-chair of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. So I thoroughly reject and repudiate his ugly rhetoric. He should keep hope alive and any personal attacks and insults to himself."
What the hell is wrong with this Negro? I wouldn't throw my Pops under nobody's Greyhound. Bump dat' Jesse Jr.! That's some ole' bullsh*t!

I'm sure the d-bags at Fox News (what the hell was Jesse doing over there in the first place?) will have a field day with this one, and point at it as more evidence that Obama is out of touch with the AverageBro. But let's not forget, these are the same d-bags who were referring to Michelle-O as a "baby mama" just a few weeks ago.

Spare us the drama guys, we know you don't care about us.

The more I think about it, the more I'm wondering if this whole thing wasn't orchestrated on some level, just like my tin-foil hat musings theory about Rebb'n Wright's comedy routine at the Press Club a few months back. Both incidents give Obama a clearcut opportunity to kick some member of the Whitey-scaring old guard (Farrakhan, Wright, Pfleger, Al, Jesse) to the proverbial curb, thus eliminating them as debate fodder.

These folks have run a relatively flawless campaign that's on the verge of selling a biracial Junior Senator as the POTUS. Would you really put this past them?

I'm just sayin'. Think about it.

Question: Did Jesse owe Obama an apology? Is Jesse Jr waaay outta pocket for puttin' his Pops on blast publicly? Is my conspiracy theory too far out there? Just how disturbed were you by that Young Buck/50 Cent audio?
