Kind of interesting that Jesse and Al are MIA on this one.
Presser going on ... asking for an apology from 0 and the Gov.
Very interesting. I have been wondering that myself. Not a peep from the Justice Brothers.
Perhaps the Justice Brothers have enough street smarts to know when to stay away from bad mojo...
“Kind of interesting that Jesse and Al are MIA on this one.”
On the contrary. They are present and accounted for.
Supporters say Gates - the director of Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research - was the victim of racial profiling.
One of them, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, was unsatisfied with the resolution.
“The charges have been dropped, but the stain remains. ... Humiliation remains,” Jackson said. “These incidents are so much of a national pattern on race.”
And the Reverend Al Sharpton was incredulous, “Ive heard of driving while black, and Ive heard of shopping while black. But Ive never heard of living in a home while black.” The Harlem minister added he would fight for Gates, “If this can happen at Harvard, what does it say about the rest of the country? Henry Louis Gates is the pre-eminent African-American scholar in the country. If they can do this to him, imagine what they can do to a kid in Roxbury.”
