Rev. Jesse Jackson
That really isn’t the smile we see from Rev. Jackson that often anymore, is it? I guess I wouldn’t smile either if years ago I had an affair that produced a child and tried to pay off the mother to keep it quiet. I also probably wouldn’t smile if in 2008 I was caught on camera saying I wanted to cut Barack Obama’s nuts off. Quite often, black people have expressed that Jesse is an opportunist who uses serious matters to find his way in front of a camera (slightly similar to Rev. Al Sharpton who most of us can tolerate more). I’m no professional but like many, I’m very observant and it always seems like the Reverend has a chip on his shoulder these days.
