Jesse Jackson's struggle for relevance 


Jesse Jackson is concerned about the possibility of a rift in the Democratic Party if blacks and Hispanics remain polarized, if Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama fail to "fervently" embrace each other at the national convention this summer, and if the "super delegates" do not fall out substantially in line with the popular vote.

Naturally, he has offered to help in any way he can.

I have the audacity to hope that an Obama presidency would marginalize Jesse Jackson and his ilk, who make a living fanning the flames of racial sensitivity and indignition. If so, that would be a truly rich dividend.

The audacity of that Jesse, wanting to horn in on someone else's time in the spotlight...

What makes you think that they wouldn't trumpet the horns of triumph and demand that now, NOW is the time for just reparations?

Good question, dawnfire. My guess is that President Obama would put the word on the street to postpone those demands until 2013 at the earliest.

Very interesting question, Dawnfire82. I would like to read Obama's position on this topic.

Remember, Obama has no connection to the "slave experience." His father was not a descendant of slaves.

Meanwhile...

A few weeks ago, I stopped at a convenience store near the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. The black male clerk got into an argument with two female African-American customers. "You people," the clerk shouted at the women. "You came over here on slave ships and now you think you're big shots." The clerk was a recent immigrant from Ethiopia.

More than a few upper-class Africans in Africa look down upon the African-American descendants of slaves. In business an African-American usually does no better than any other person in closing deals in Africa. Many successful African businessspeople in East and West Africa would rather deal with white guys in international trade.

Brotherhood? Tell that to the people in Rwanda.

Who is Jesse Jackson?

Obama has already elbowed Jackson and Sharpton out of the way somewhat. Even if he loses the GE - heck, even if he doesn't get the nomination - Obama is now the first person major media will want to talk to about any racial issue and some more general issues. Jackson and Sharpton won't go away, and they are skilled at playing the hands dealt them, but the ground has already changed.
