DON'T EMBARRASS POOR LITTLE JESSE | 2005-06-11
Back when Jesse Jackson first ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984, of all years, the media reported a problem the white candidates had. As the first debate approached, the media reported a concern other liberal Democrats had that they understood perfectly.
They were afraid of making Jesse Jackson look like a dumb (N word).
Jesse Jackson has never said anything in a debate that anyone could not have written for him. It was hard for even the most devoted liberal to convince people that Jackson was saying something interesting.
We all know why. If you look at any so-called black leader on television, you see what is obvious to everybody. He never says anything that doesn't go straight from his parietal lobe to his mouth.
The human brain has a frontal lobe, where new information is processed, a parietal lobe behind it from which remembered information comes, and the occipital and temporal lobes which were there from early evolution. A black "leader" spouts. He never comes up with anything that he has not perfectly memorized from endless repetition.
What I have said is far too blunt. I need to say it more diplomatically. My bluntness is the result of my peculiar experience. Let me explain that to you.
